Our Florida Chapter Volunteer Day was a great success again this year. We were thrilled to be able to support our local American Red Cross as hostesses in their 2015 Palm Beach Designer Show House.
This year’s house, built in 1925, is a 7,000 square foot waterfront home located in Lake Worth Florida. La Florentia was designed by a protege of Addison Mizner, G. Sherman Childs. In 1954 it was given by a man to his wife for her birthday and has been dubbed The Birthday Cake Castle. Seeing the turrets and thick stucco like icing on a cake it is easy to see how it got its name. Twently talented Interior Designers transformed the house into a home that is both classic and trendy. It is filled with touches of the unexpected and intrigue.
