more Palm Beach...

Many of the houses in Palm Beach are built in the Mizner-style. Addison Mizner's architectural visions mixed antiquities with reproductions in manufacturing the signature Palm Beach style. There are Spanish Renaissance tile details, lots of wrought iron, glorious carved doors, and a myriad of architectural details.
Here are a few beauties (just like their owners, many have had facelifts in the past few years):

So beautiful! I wonder if the plastic surgeons did as nice a job on the owner's faces as the contractor's did on their homes!
