Estee Lauder ... A Classic

We have had a little reprieve this week and I have become intrigued by my surroundings.  I grew up with Estee Lauder. My Mother thought these little perfume compacts were the Bomb.  Or whatever she called it at that time.

We gave these to my "Aunts" every Christmas.  

Having these memories brought back, I thought I'd take a peak into Estee Lauder's Palm Beach Estate. These photos were taken after her daughter-in-law Evelyn Lauder took over  the estate.  

While "Severe" I love the White versus the "beige" seen elsewhere in Palm Beach.  It makes such a grand statement ... I was able to "peek" into the fence to snap this photo:

Back to the official photos ... 

The Floors and the Yellow walls bring in the Sunshine and Glamour!

These Images were published in 2000 ... 

This Classic Kitchen was kept pretty much the same as when it was built in the 30's.  I love it!  It's Perfect!

Again, the balance and style of this room ... Timeless.  The pops of Yellow in the lamps make it for me!

Grand Spaces with such staying Power.  This one rocks it.  I love the use of the mirror to make the space seem even larger and brighter!

And who could resist this?

I hope you enjoyed the tour of the Estee Lauder Estate in Palm Beach ... I wish I could get "inside" ... I will keep trying ...and you'll be the first to know if I do!!
