Neo Regency Style

This beautiful style, known as Hollywood regency, Vogue regency, and Palm Beach regency, is one of my very favorites. My good friend Chuck Bolton sent me a Michael Saunders listing today showing this gorgeous home in Osprey - (south Sarasota) and I love it. Compare this one with the more French regency style known as a "lanterne" since the windows are aligned front to back, in Palm Beach. This style also translates to interiors, and Dorothy Draper promoted it in the past, and now Kelly Wearstler, a fellow southerner has adopted this dramatic look. For drama, elegance, and beauty this is the way to go. DF*****
