from Smith Architectural Group (SAG) in Palm Beach (www.smitharchitecturalgroup.com )
“In the tradition of Addison Mizner, Maurice Fatio, John Volk, and Howard Major–the early architects of Palm Beach’s great estates and public buildings of the Gilded Age–the architecture of Jeffery W. Smith stands resplendent as a testament to the refined elegance of another time, and is as well a promise of the grandeur that the future holds. Hailed by Town & Country as ‘the most adept young historicist working in Palm Beach today’, preeminent Palm Beach architect Jeffery Smith is a paragon of exquisite design sense, as is clearly evident in the houses featured here. Smith’s work–a continuation of the classical Mediterranean style.”
Jeffrey Smith was reported by Forbes to be one of the Top 10 architects in the U.S.: https://www.forbes.com/2001/06/22/0622home.html
Bella Fortuna Estate is the only home designed by Jeffrey Smith in Fort Lauderdale, and one of only a very few in the U.S. outside of Palm Beach.
from Bunny Williams Incorporated in New York (www.bunnywilliams.com ) widely considered among the Top 10 interior designer and decorators in the U.S.
“Bunny Williams has been a great influence in the interior design field for almost five decades. Williams started her own interior design firm in 1988 after 22 years at Parish-Hadley and Associates. Her design company and interior designs have been featured, on many occasions, in the top design magazines, as one of the leading and top design firms in the country. Elle Décor referred to Williams as the ‘undisputed doyenne of aristo-American decorating as well as garden design aficionado. For her, it’s all about classic comfort, an informed eye, and a bit of fun. In her rooms, fine European antiques meet mirrored walls and gutsy artwork. She uses intense colors and delicate patterns with equal panache’.”
