Overview

Visit 12 Florida cities and tour over 40 stunning historic Mediterranean revival homes, captured inside and out in over 350 images. Spanish and Mediterranean revival architecture was all the rage in the 1920s and '30s, when stars of the silver screen were fashioning their celebrated personal estates, which were copied by those wanting to share in the glamour and sophistication. This romantic architectural style was inspired by classic Spanish, Italian, and Moorish designs. Many architectural masterpieces were created during the Florida Land Boom Era. Architects featured including the legendary Addison Mizner, Maurice Fatio, Marion Sims Wyeth, John Volk, James Gamble Rogers II, Richard Kiehnel, and John Elliot. These homes include family-scaled creations set along charming suburban streets, along with mammoth oceanfront pleasure palaces of the rich and famous, including Donald Trump's magnificently historic landmark, the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.
