Book Review: Palm Beach Chic

From interiors to landscaping and beyond, I adore the fresh, bold and unabashedly W.A.S.P. aesthetic that is so closely associated to Palm Beach, Florida. Naturally, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Palm Beach Chic, by Jennifer Ash Rudick with photography by Jessica Klewicki Glynn. This book is simply beautiful, both inside and out.

Under the book’s paper jacket is a fun surprise…the hard cover resembles a lovely blue and white tile mosaic, straight from a billion dollar Palm Beach pool house. Palm Beach Chic is full of colorful homes, vistas, gardens and table top inspiration. A preppy and colorful insider’s tour of one of my favorite vacation spots…what could be better than that?

*I received a free copy of Palm Beach Chic from the publisher, but this did not influence my opinion here.

  2. Palm Beach interiors have long reflected the travels, penchants, and whimsies of the town’s worldly inhabitants. I'll surely enjoy this book.
