This house on Palm Beach Island was designed by renowned architect Howard Chilton in 1952 in his signature Monterrey-style, featuring lacy wrought iron scroll work on the front façade.

The Palm Beach Landmarks Commission selected this home to receive landmark status because my renovation kept the house to its original design.

The home has had only two owners in the past 75 years. Many of the original furnishings were left behind. I had them repainted and reupholstered, so they’ll likely be around for another 75 years.

The dining room table and chairs are vintage Drexel Heritage from the 1950s. I had the table and chairs, which feature cane backs, painted a super high gloss white. The chairs were recovered in a Sunbrella fabric.
