This home and studio, located in Phipp’s Plaza, a residential and commercial plaza with central green space in the center of Palm Beach, is the home and studio of modern-day interior designer Scott Snyder, and was the home and studio of Marion Sims Wyeth, an architect who designed many notable projects around South Florida in the freewheeling 1920s.
Snyder, according to his website, was listed on Architectural Digest’s list of the top 100 designers and architects. This guy’s stuff, while very classy, just screams “Society Interior Designer!!!” Just look at the overstuffed chairs! The palms and potted plants artfully scattered around the interior, and the pile of blue china in the hall! His stuff is tasteful and gorgeous, if just the tiniest tad bit fussy.
Meanwhile, Wyeth was a force to be reckoned with. He designed Donald Trump’s Mar–A-Lago and the Florida Governor’s Mansion. According to the brokerbabble, the house was built by Wyeth as his home and architectural studio in 1925, which, given its location in Palm Beach, and the large rooms so easily converted to an interior designer’s studio, seems absolutely appropriate.
The broker waxes eloquently:
