Write yourself into the STORIE, Chapter One.
From the moment you walk through the door, magnificent views of the marina greet you from the stunning floor-to-ceiling bay windows as you enter the 180-thousand-square-foot clubhouse.
The natural beauty and deep-water access are home to an array of luxurious vessels that enjoy first-class services and immediate access to the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. With 60 slips, a gourmet market, and the best of everything, the marina is just one of the reasons that the Club at Admirals Cove is a rare gem in a sea of lifestyle communities.
“Many country clubs will say they are unique, but we truly are because of our proximity to the Intracoastal, our 45 holes of golf, our boutique hotel, and our freestanding 21,000 square foot Bluewater Wellness Spa & Salon,” says General Manager/COO Brett Morris.
“World-class” is how members describe Bluewater Spa, where healing powers, expertise, and pampering are elevated to a true art form. As you journey through the Salt Suite, you can feel the stress melt away. The detoxifying effects strengthen the immune system, help reduce signs of aging, and leave you refreshed and in a blissful state of calm. The steam room sparkles with shimmering lights
while the sauna, whirlpools, and relaxation areas transport you to a total state of well-being.
Imported Italian accommodations provide a chic and modern atmosphere at the Bluewater Salon and Barbershop, equipped with the latest hair care and grooming technology. A private coffee bar, make-up counter, and color bar allow members to socialize, while experiencing the beautiful atmosphere.
“Today’s members want a lifestyle community that caters to all their needs, from golf and racquet sports, to overall physical and mental wellness, says Morris, a distinguished leader in the hospitality space. “We are an extension of their home.” And it’s here that Joe McCart and his wife Dana call home.
“I’ve belonged to many clubs and Admirals Cove is truly a special place,” McCart, the well-respected Club President, has lived in Admirals Cove for 13 years. In addition to serving as president of the Club, McCart serves on the Board of Directors for the Admirals Cove Foundation. “Not only is Admirals Cove a beautiful place to live, it is also a philanthropic community, serving the local North Palm Beach County area with grants and contributions to local charities. The AC Foundation was recently nominated for 2022 Nonprofit of the Year by Nonprofits First for its good works.
McCart, a scratch golfer, enjoys golf, fishing, and dining with friends at the various restaurant venues
Admirals Cove has to offer. The philosophy of focusing on fresh ingredients, commitment to farm-to-table, and the top notch service creates an opportunity for members to gather together. “The camaraderie that exists not only among members, but with staff as well, makes this an incredible club community,” says McCart. “Our many first-class amenities and activities create the environment to socialize and make lifetime friendships.”
One such amenity is the state-of-the-art Golf Performance Center, which in scheduled to be completed in early 2023. It will feature the latest in technology from Swing Catalyst, Trackman,

PuttView, and Force Plate. This five-thousandsquare-foot learning center will also provide members with a virtual golf experience to play on any course in the world.
The 45 holes of golf the club offers gives a variety of play and a dozen teaching professionals are there to help all levels of players improve their game. While golf is a country club mainstay, the sport of pickleball is growing in popularity, as seen in the club’s robust racquet facility, home to eight dedicated courts and twelve har-tru tennis courts, several of which are lighted for night play.
“We are a community that has so much to offer, however we are constantly brainstorming to elevate us to another level of serving the members.” And it’s the next level that inspires Morris and his staff of 600 to constantly strive for every day. “Culture is everything at our club. We have a great group of leaders committed to providing our members with top-notch service and the best of everything.”
The brain is what makes us human and is the source of our individuality. It forms our thoughts, passions, hopes and dreams, and is constantly changing. Every time we think and interact with others, our brain is altered in complex, yet marvelous ways. With this in mind, we invite you to join us as we enter the future of brain science and health at Florida Atlantic University, and train the next generation of scientists and researchers through mentored advanced research.
Located at FAU Jupiter, the new Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute building will provide 60,000-square-feet of space to house more than 100 researchers and the projected six new research centers, covering research from the mechanisms of Alzheimer’s to supercomputing that examines large data sets from molecules to neural activity. This new state-of-the-art facility will increase access to innovative STEM programs, bringing more opportunities for collaborative research for generations of scientists to come.

Changing your residence to a different state has many financial implications. To avoid tax and other consequences, be sure you understand the steps you need to take before moving. Among their diverse services, The Rizzo, Apple, Schneider, and Langbert Group at J.P. Morgan Wealth Management— Wealth Partners Anthony Rizzo, Roy Apple, Jeremy Schneider, and Brett Langbert—can work with you to help minimize the risks and disruptions of an upcoming move.
You have to leave, really leave. Many states that rely on levying state income taxes to generate revenue are active in challenging claims by former residents that they have moved out of state and changed their tax domiciles. “In order for your move to be respected, you really have to move—half measures may leave you open to claims by your former home state that it should still be able to tax you,” says Anthony Rizzo.
Changing residence is a legal matter, so follow the guidance of your independent legal and tax advisors before doing anything.
There are many actions you can take to fulﬁll the requirements of a move, so you’ll want to make a checklist to keep organized and stay on track.
“A good place to start is by changing your driver’s license to your new state and canceling your old license,” says Jeremy Schneider. “Register your car in your new state and notify your insurance company of the change. Similarly, change your voter registration.”

Are you affiliated with a religious institution? Move your religious affiliation to a local house of worship. Do you plan to buy a home, or will you be renting? If possible, sell your home in your old state. If you need to keep your home, transfer title to family members or other entities; if you’re planning to rent in your new state, ask for a long-term lease.
Keep your most valuable documents up-to-date.
“Remember to revise your estate planning documents (wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance care directives, etc.) to reflect your new state’s forms,” advises Roy Apple. This is an essential part of keeping your tax domicile current.
Focus your economic, social, and financial activities in your new state. Move your bank accounts and safe deposit box to your new state and close bank accounts in your former state. Engage local medical professionals and send your medical records to them. Change your address with the IRS— list your new address on your tax returns. Notify your credit card companies and financial institutions of your new address. In general, focus your everyday activities in your new state.
Pay attention to timing.
Maintain a calendar to remind yourself to stay outside your former state for more than 182 days in each calendar year. Keep receipts that prove local activity in your new state. Remember, you generally don’t have to be in your new state for more than 182 days, just outside your former state. Brett Langbert advises, “The less time you spend in your former state, the less likely your old state will initiate a ‘residency audit,’ requiring you to prove where you spend the most time.”

Season has been off to an incredible start this year. At the social events I’ve attended over the past month, everyone has just seemed so happy, letting their inner butterfly shine. I was espe cially impressed with how many of you came out for Jupiter Magazine’s recent cocktail party at Mana Greek Fusion to celebrate our September and October issues. It was so fun getting to know some of you better and to meet many of our readers and advertisers for the first time. Thank you all for joining us, and thank you to Mana Greek Fusion for hosting!
Okay, so let’s get to it.... Home is a central theme of our November issue, and with that comes the idea of love and family. I couldn’t think of anyone better to grace the cover than Ashley and Ed Brown. The Jupiter couple run a nonprofit called the Selfless Love Foundation, whose mission is to transform the foster care system in Florida to help kids and families in the best way possible by better facilitating connections so more foster chil dren find loving homes. Read about the foundation (and Ashley and Ed’s personal love story) in “Spreading the Love,” beginning on page 50.
On page 58, we take you on a tour through the incredible home of former Lighthouse ArtCenter president Pat DeAloia and her husband, Blaise. Their Jupiter Hills Club residence was renovated by interior designer H. Allen Holmes, who created a true contemporary master piece. Plus, beginning on page 74, we talk to local architects, designers, and contractors about the importance of sustainable building and highlight a few standout homes and commercial spaces that honor Mother Earth by utilizing green features. The planet is our most important home after all.
I’d also like to note two events happening in our home of Jupiter this month that you won’t want to miss. Do you remember the Van, Surf & Skate Expo? It was an annual event in West Palm Beach between 1977 and 1981 that cel ebrated surf and skate culture in South Florida. It made a comeback in 2019 when local surfer Bill Unger decided to relaunch it in the area—then COVID forced it back into hibernation. But now it’s back, and it’s relocating to Jupiter! Learn more about the big event taking place in town on November 5 on page 42.
Finally, you may recall that the Maltz was supposed to launch their grand reopening season last spring but had to delay much of the season due to challenges like supply chain and labor shortages. Well, they are finally ready to roll, and it all starts with Jersey Boys, which opened in late October and runs through November 13. I was recently treated to a private performance by the show’s lead, Josh Skurnik (who plays Frankie Valli), and all I can say is wowza! His voice is incredible, and the newly renovated theater itself is magnificent. See our Calendar on page 118 for more info.
I hope you enjoy the November issue, and maybe I’ll see you out and about this season!
Peace and blessings,
November brings slightly cooler weather and one of my favorite holidays: Thanksgiving. This time of year, I am reminded of how grateful I am for the abundance of life. Of course, family and friends always come to mind first, but this past year has led me to ponder some basics we often take for granted—like our health.
My immediate family has experienced a few health-related scares over the past few months, including myself and my children. None were life-threatening, but it has been stressful and frightening nonetheless. We all came together as a family and supported one an other through our emotions and frustrations. My husband, Keith, is our rock and, as always, he kept us calm and reminded us that there are others whose circumstances are much worse. For me, giving thanks this year is especially important. I am grateful for so many “simple” things—things like my eyesight, laughter, delicious food, my job, social activities, and so much more.
I also want to thank several of my dear friends (you know who you are!) and my marvelous sister, Elise, for helping me through these tough times. Without their love, support, and laughter, I would have crumbled. And I’d like to give a special shout-out to my colleagues at Jupiter Magazine, who work so hard to put together each issue. You are appreciated, and I am thankful for all of you.
And to all of you, I thank you for your readership and for supporting Jupiter Magazine. Feel free to reach out anytime and let us know about any events, charities, or news we can help spread the word about. There’s no better way in northern Palm Beach County to promote your business, service, or event than by advertising with us! Please keep in mind we do so much more than print. We offer a plethora of advertising possibilities to fit every budget.
As the holiday season nears, take some time to reflect on what you’re thankful for and enjoy all the family time and gatherings. Happy Thanksgiving, and I’ll see you around town!Tanya Lorigan

Just a few steps into The Inspired Sewist, it’s immediately apparent that this cute shop lives up to its name. Surrounded by colorful fabrics, creative kits, tools, and spectacular quilts, guests are easily inspired to sit down at one of the shiny new Bernina sewing machines and start creating something magical.
Lori Carpenter-Fitzgerald bought the former fabric store (then known as Quilter’s Choice) in 2016 and expanded its inventory of sewing machines and class offerings to attract new people to the art of sewing. Today, The Inspired Sewist offers a variety of classes where newcomers and accomplished sewists alike can learn everything from how to make a pillow to machine embroidery.
Carpenter-Fitzgerald says she has seen a resurgence in sewing, especially among young people. “During COVID, everyone was pulling Grandma’s sewing machine out of the closet,” says the Stuart resident. She now regularly welcomes young people
interested in quilting, upcycling clothing, and sewing costumes for cosplay. More men are getting into sewing too, she notes.
The Inspired Sewist will provide a machine during class if you don’t have your own. The shop also offers private lessons and hosts educators from across the country who teach new techniques and showcase new products. For Carpenter-Fitzgerald, who owned a court-reporting business before buying the store, sewing is a passion that is easily shared. “I love our community,” she says. “Once people come into the store, they never want to leave.” 661 Maplewood Drive Suite 14, Jupiter; theinspiredsewist.com; 561.747.0525 —Valerie Staggs
scent can elevate your mood and even bring back a beautiful memory. That’s why it’s so important to curate a beautiful aroma in your home. From candles to cleaners, I’ve come up with a list of delicious scents to infuse into your living space.
Scent New York creates amazing fragrances commonly found in hotel lobbies but for your home. I love their mini diffuser combined with the Westin White Tea fragrance. If you prefer a more “designer” vibe, try Gucci’s newest candles. I’m a big fan of the Freesia scent, and the candleholders are so beautiful, you won’t want to throw them out after burning. Lastly, no luxury scent column would be complete without Meghan Markle’s favorite candle—Soho Home’s Bassett Rose Water candle. True to the duchess’ style, it’s both minimalist and sophisticated.
Local interior designer Angela Reynolds recently introduced me to these Cuir Sacré luxury diffusers by Victoria Cator, and I’m hooked. They last up to six months and have an extraordinary scent.
One of my latest obsessions is Homecourt, a company that turns regular household products into hypnotic, olfactory experiences. The brainchild of actress Courteney Cox, Homecourt’s lineup consists of hand soaps, dish soaps, and more made with custom-crafted scents created by expert perfumers.
As much as we love our pets, they can quickly ruin all the delicious-smelling goodness you’ve tried to add to your home. No matter how many candles you burn, they won’t cover up an old pet stain. I found this pet odor eliminator by a newer brand called Zoop that works like nothing I’ve ever seen.
To tie it all together, I was looking for a stand or a beautiful riser to display everything, and I stumbled on these gathering boards by Patrick Darczuk
Each piece takes three weeks to make and is hand-shaped to perfectly cradle everything that sits inside of it.
I hope you enjoy making your home a luxury oasis this fall! xo, Emily
When Matt Hudson welcomed his second son into the world on November 1, 2010, he never imagined the enduring legacy the tiny child would inspire.
Harrison Everett Hudson was born with severe medical needs, primarily issues with muscle development. During the 16 weeks after Harrison’s birth, Hudson and his wife, Melissa, traveled back and forth between three hospitals
in two states, desperate to find help for their son. Team after team of medical professionals screened him for every possible genetic condition, yet no one could diagnose exactly what was wrong. Ultimately, Harrison’s medical issues were classified as a “genetic anomaly.”
The mysterious illness would eventually take Harrison’s life. On April 4, 2011, the Hudsons lost their baby boy. He was just 5 months old.
The experience left the couple
drained, both emotionally and financially, yet they discovered the power of community as countless people rallied to give them the support they needed during the most difficult time of their lives. Motivated by the generosity of spirit their son inspired, they vowed to provide that same support to other families and founded Hope from Harrison, a nonprofit dedicated to raising resources, awareness, and hope for children with critical medical needs.
“There are those moments when the dark and the light come together,” says Hudson of the work he and his wife do through Hope from Harrison. He tells the story of the first child the organization helped—a little boy named Ryland. “The doctors said Ryland would not live past the age of 1,” recalls Hudson. “Now I watch him on Facebook. He’s 12 and doing great.” Money raised from Hope from Harrison helped Ryland’s family update their home with changes like replacing the carpet with hardwood floors so Ryland could more easily get around with his ventilator.
Children like Ryland require roundthe-clock care, and the expense to their families is astronomical, even with medical insurance. “At the time of Harrison’s death, Melissa and I were solely responsible for his 24-hour medical care because we had exhausted the allotted in-home nursing care benefits offered
through our medical insurance,” says Hudson. “We had applied for Medicaid and were put in the typical 30- to 45-day waiting period for approval. It was not logistically possible to hold down jobs, and the intensive 24-hour medical care was physically and mentally exhausting.”
Since its inception, Hope from Harrison has given more than $300,000 to families in need. Funds are raised through online donations, private donors, and at West Palm Beach’s SunFest, where the Hudsons and volunteers run a beer concession during the music festival each year. This past year’s SunFest funds were allocated to help Jaxx, a 3-year-old boy from Lake Worth who has Möbius syndrome, a rare neurological disorder. Jaxx is being raised by a single mom, who also has a 10-yearold son and had to give up her job to provide full-time care for Jaxx. Hudson understands that sacrifice. When Harrison was born, he gave up his landscape contracting business in Texas to move to Palm Beach County in 2011 to be closer to Melissa’s family for support, and the family now resides in Abacoa. In 2017, Hudson was finally able to recapture his dream of owning a landscape architecture firm, M. Hudson Design. “I like being outside and shaping spaces and creating environments that inspire people,” says Hudson, who has been passionate about landscape design since his college years at the University of Georgia. The Jupiter-based firm creates outdoor environments including landscaping, irrigation, hardscapes, lighting, pools, and outdoor living spaces.
Hudson is reminded daily how lucky he is to work in a
field he loves, to be able to help families in crisis, and to have a healthy, happy family of his own. Harrison’s older brother, Maxwell, is now 14, and Harper, Harrison’s younger sister who never got the chance to meet him, is 8. Gratefulness is a lesson Hudson says he learned from Harrison. “When someone asks me about Harrison Everett Hudson and his story, this is what I know to be true: Harrison was a spirit among our own, here to radiate light, love, possibilities, and all things good,” says Hudson. “So when you think of Harrison, his story, and our family, please honor him by seeing these things in yourself, your neighbor, and this world.” hopefromharrison.org; mhudsondesign.com ❖
A historic event dating back to the late 1970s comes to Jupiter this month, bringing the best of surf, skate, and van life culture with itby TRACY MARCELLO COURTESY OF BILL UNGER/VSSE
It isn’t often that a stroke of luck changes your lifestyle. It’s even rarer for it to change your future career. But Bill Unger knows the feeling.
Unger was born near Philadelphia and moved to Florida with his mother in 1977 when he was 12 years old. Almost immediately, the young boy fell in love with the area’s surf culture. He was already an avid skateboarder, and surﬁng seemed like a natural next step. But sadly, it was out of reach since he couldn’t afford to buy a surfboard.
Clockwise from top right: Skating the half-pipe; the 1979 Van, Surf & Skate Expo in West Palm Beach; Bill Unger surﬁng circa 1988; “Brown Sugar,” a Ford Falcon van at the 2019 VSSE.
A couple of years later, he hit the proverbial jackpot when he attended the 1979 Van, Surf & Skate Expo (VSSE) in West Palm Beach. The event, a weeklong showcase for surf, skateboard, music, and vintage van life, drew thousands of attendees annually. “My mom gave me ﬁve dollars to last the day, and after spending three dollars on a hamburger and a Coke and another dollar on stickers, I had one dollar left,” Unger recalls of the event that was held annually between 1977 and 1981. “As I was leaving, this guy came up to me and said, ‘Hey kid, do you want to win a surfboard?’ They were holding a rafﬂe. I put my ﬁnal dollar into a big ﬁshbowl and, lo and behold, I won the surfboard.”
That board was the start of a lifelong passion, as it gave Unger the opportunity to surf his way through high school,
ultimately traveling to places like Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and up and down the California and Florida coasts.
Everything came full circle in 2019 when Unger decided to pause his career in project management and relaunch VSSE as a modern-day festival for skateboard, surf, and van enthusiasts. “[The original event] was an extreme sports festival before anyone knew the term ‘extreme sports,’” says Unger. “But when you were involved in that as a surfer and a skater, you instantly knew it was where you belonged. A lot of why I decided to bring back this event was to continue that essence.”
Clockwise from above: Florida Skateboard Hall of Fame inductee Chuck Lagana; Maddox Ray with the surfboard he won at the 2019 VSSE; Pat Love, Scott McCranels, and Bill Unger at the 2019 VSSE.
COVID put the newly reinstated event on hold for two years, but this month it returns—and it’s moving to Jupiter. On November 5, the VSSE will take place at The Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk, under the Indiantown Bridge near Harbourside Place. With the help of local sponsors (like title sponsor Ocean Magic Surf Shop), Unger is hopeful that he has found the expo’s forever home in one of his favorite surf communities. “I want to plant this here correctly and water it correctly to make it an event Jupiter can be really proud of for years to come,” he says.
There is a lot in store at this year’s expo, including a halfpipe skate performance area, a surfboard shaping booth, a surf fashion show, live music from reggae band Drifting Roots, and a vintage van exhibit with Sprinter vans, VW buses, and more. Most importantly, Unger wants local surfers and skaters to have the same amazing experience he had at the original event.
“I want to give something to today’s youth while honoring what we had in the past,” he says, noting he plans to host trick competitions and games at this year’s expo. He will also be raffling off not one but two surfboards. Guests over 15 can win a board donated by a local surf shop, and kids 15 and younger will have the chance to win a custom board shaped by 17-yearold Jupiter resident Stryker Hawk (@strykerhawksurfboards).
“Getting that surfboard at 14 years old opened the world to me,” says Unger. “You become bonded to that first board for
life if you really fall in love with the sport.”
Whether you already have a surfboard or skateboard or just like to listen to music and chill, VSSE promises to evoke today’s van life culture for anyone who values the free-spirit idea of just hitting the road. Says Unger: “That has become a vibrant aspect of the event because it embodies the nomadic spirit of beach life—the ability to just throw your board in your van and disappear. To just get in the water and enjoy what you do.”

STUART RESIDENT MIKE CARINGI IS THE PROUD OWNER OF THE DEBUT MORADA 18—THE PERFECT SKIFF FOR HIS NEWFOUND LOVE OF MORE RELAXING ANGLING ADVENTURESby GEORGE LABONTE
Mike Caringi is no stranger to boating or offshore
ﬁshing. With an extensive background ﬁshing in blue water from the offshore canyons in New Jersey to the Gulf Stream off his home waters on the Treasure Coast, the Stuart resident has owned a string of large boats up to 53 feet in length.
As years march by, time ensures that aches last a little longer and bruises heal more slowly—and Caringi found himself throttling back somewhat. The hard-charging offshore marathons
evolved into a more peaceful alternative, enjoying time on the water without the collateral damage sustained from a day spent on rough seas. The sun rising over rolling tarpon schools on the glassy waters of the St. Lucie River proved to be a relaxing yet thrilling way to begin a day before work, and it was right in his backyard for the taking. In his search for the perfect platform to embark on this new endeavor, Caringi found the answer to all of his questions in the Morada 18.
As it happened, local builder Rich Devito, the owner of Islamorada Boatworks, had been working tirelessly for several years on perfecting the design of a boat that was exactly what Caringi needed. Devito is himself a tarpon addict, who has spent many years chasing these ﬁsh with his ﬂy rod in hand. Never quite satisﬁed with previous tarpon skiffs that he had owned, he set out to improve on each detail he believed fell short. The process of elimination resulted in several prototype models that would eventually be tweaked and tuned until there was no room for doubt that he had his ultimate skiff locked down. Only then would the Morada 18 be ready for prime time.
Attention to detail such as a soft and dry riding hull that would be whisper quiet on the ﬂats came ﬁrst. A light yet strong hull was achieved using 100 percent Carbon Innegra resin-infused
LENGTH: 17 feet, 10 inches
BEAM: 6 feet, 6 inches

construction. And custom touches like a teak toe rail to tame ﬂy lines and a hidden Simrad EVO MFD that rises out of the console on an electric actuator add class to an already elegant design aesthetic. The ﬁrst model was rigged with a Yamaha 115 SHO engine.
Hull number one, which will be Caringi’s personal tarpon hunter, is ﬁnished to exacting standards for his very speciﬁc needs. Consulting with Devito every step of the way (including receiving advice about chasing local tarpon from this veteran angler) has resulted in a boat that is perfectly designed for the area’s inshore inhabitants.
For Caringi, the simplicity of running upriver for a relaxing morning session signals a new chapter that allows him to divide his time between inshore and offshore—without taking a beating in the process. ❖

When the $4.2 billion excess that is Baha Mar debuted on Nassau’s Cable Beach in 2017, it revolutionized the concept of a megaresort. Despite its ambitious size, the property shined for its top-notch service, quality brands, and world-class experiences. Five years later, Baha Mar continues to wow with new activities, eateries, and events, plus an array of posh accommodations.
Baha Mar boasts numerous room and suite structures across its three hotel brands: Grand Hyatt, SLS, and Rosewood. Chief
among these offerings are the 6,200-square-foot oceanside sixbedroom villas at Rosewood Baha Mar, which are the resort’s most lavish accommodations to date. When venturing outside, consider spending ample time at the new 15-acre Baha Bay, home to a sprawling luxury water park that speaks to Baha Mar’s larger-than-life allure. Sure, there are plenty of thrilling slides— don’t miss the high-speed Dueling Riptide Coaster—plus a 500,000-gallon wave pool, a lazy river, and a surf simulator. But throw in some gourmet food options, an outdoor casino, and a beach club (equipped with full-service private cabanas, ham mocks, and two infinity-edge swimming pools) and discover exactly how a water park garners elite status.
Augmenting an already impres sive collection of more than 45 restaurants and bars are two of the biggest names in the industry. Chef Marcus Samuelsson puts a South ern spin on Bahamian cuisine with Marcus at Baha Mar Fish + Chop House, featuring crave-worthy
dishes such as conch croquettes and spicy prawns complemented by juicy fried chicken and marsh mallow-crusted sweet potato mash. A second outpost by Samuelsson, the more casual Streetbird on the Beach, serves the likes of crispy chicken sandwiches (slathered in hot pepper mayo) and calypso fritters (a conch–salt fish hybrid) from a food truck anchored in the sand. Icon Daniel Boulud imports a taste of France with Café Boulud, The Bahamas. Here, the marquee chef peppers a menu of French classics and signature dishes (hello, Tournedos Rossini) with Bahamian catch and produce.
As the world embraces the return of person-toperson interaction, Baha Mar follows suit with daily instructor-led programming. Try the one-of-a-kind Flamingo Yoga, stretching and planking among the property’s resident flock. Choose from a roster of art classes conducted at The Current Gallery & Art Center, including botanical leaf printing, landscape painting, and acrylic pouring. Hone your cooking skills with sessions for the entire family or select others that cater just to adults or kids.
Alternatively, craft your own schedule of active and leisurely pursuits, capitalizing on the surfeit of amenities. With multiple swim ming pools, the Caribbean’s only flagship ESPA spa, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature design Royal Blue Golf Course, the largest casino in the Caribbean, and a shopping arcade of 30 high-end brands, everything from fun in the sun to retail therapy is on tap.
Beyond its glorious day-to-day delights, Baha Mar has found a niche hosting events that appeal to gourmands, sports enthusiasts, philanthropists, and more. One highlight each year is The Baha mas Culinary & Arts Festival (formerly called Taste of SLS at Baha Mar), a decadent dining experience curated by the award-winning personalities behind the property’s restaurants coupled with inti mate performances. The 2022 festival, held last month, included appearances by celebrity Chef Amanda Freitag and Iron Chef ’s Ming Tsai, a performance by Boyz II Men, and more.

Another annual favorite is the Baha Mar Cup, a celebrity tennis fundraiser that last year saw Andy Roddick, Victoria Azarenka, and Mark Knowles battle it out in the name of charity while also engag ing in matches with attendees and coaching local schoolchildren. The next Baha Mar Cup will take place next month, December 9-11, with another all-star lineup set to participate.
Without resting on the laurels of its initial success, Baha Mar surfaces as the pinnacle of megaresort chic, giving travelers the luxury of choice. This idyllic island getaway promises endless combinations of escapism, excitement, and indulgences, result ing in a memorable vacation for every personality within today’s travel set. bahamar.com

Ashley and Ed Brown are making huge strides in the improvement of the state’s foster care systemby PAIGE BOWERS | photography by JERRY RABINOWITZ
Ed Brown needed a little bit of liquid courage the first time he asked his now wife, Ashley, out on a date. The former chief executive officer of The Patrón Spirits Company, chair man of Clear Sports, and professional race car driver had been thinking about her ever since they met in 2013 at a racing event in California. Ashley, a former model and web hostess, was interviewing him for the International Motor Sports Association, and sparks flew between the two. But the moment passed, and they went their separate ways.
A year later, Ed finally reached out through a friend. “I was working in Dallas when a girlfriend texted me saying Ed wanted my phone number,” recalls Ashley, who gave the green light. By the time Ashley’s phone rang, Ed confesses he had consumed a fair amount of wine at his condo in Boca Raton, where he was living at the time. He asked if he could take her out to dinner, and she agreed. A few days later, Ed was on a plane to Texas.
They had such a great time on that first date that Ashley flew to Florida to see him a week later. That date seemed to seal the deal, as Ashley promptly told a friend she was certain they would eventually marry. Sure enough, she moved in with Ed five weeks later, they were engaged three months after their first date, and they tied the knot within a year. They resided in Hillsboro Beach for a while, and in 2021 they moved to Jupiter after building their dream home in the Bear’s Club community.
It’s hard to say exactly why they clicked so quickly, other than that it was meant to be. He’s an introvert; she’s an extrovert. But they share a lot of similarities as well. Both were raised to value hard work and doing right by others (Ed in Colorado; Ashley in Fort Pierce, Florida). They also share a competitive streak. Ed is an avid golfer who also used to race cars, winning both the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring endurance races in 2016 with his Tequila Patrón–sponsored Extreme Speed Motorsports team (ESM). Ashley is a former barrel racer turned model who cold-called her way into emcee jobs with the Memphis Grizzlies and World Wrestling Entertainment.
“When I met Ashley’s parents for the first time, I remember thinking that she was the real deal because of them,” says Ed. “I knew they raised her well and that she had great values. And that made me fall in love with her even more.”
Having such amazing parents is something Ashley appreciates perhaps more than most. Adopted at birth, she knows that being cared for by a loving family has helped shape the person she is today, which includes being ambitious and hardworking. “I hit the family jackpot,” she says. “I grew up really Southern, on a ranch with cattle, and I was super-involved with [youth development organiza tion] 4-H as a kid. My dad didn’t have a high school diploma, but he started his own construction company. My parents told me that I didn’t have to be the smartest, I just needed to work hard. So I started my first business selling cattle while I was in high school.”
When it came time for the Browns to talk about starting their own family, Ashley brought up an alternative. There were so many foster children in the state who were not as fortunate as she had been, and she wanted to do something to help them as a way of paying it forward. “There was nothing in this world that [Ed and I] needed,” she says. “So I told Ed we should start a foundation that helps foster kids. He said he would absolutely support me, as long as I did all the work,” she adds with a laugh.
When I met Ashley’s parents...I remember thinking that she was the real deal because of them. I knew they raised her well and that she had great values. And that made me fall in love with her even more.”
—E d B rownThe Browns’ home is perfect for entertaining, with a custom-built bar that is stocked with top-shelf liquor including, of course, plenty of Patrón.
It was agreed. Instead of bringing their own children into the world, they would do whatever they could to take care of all the other kids who needed a family. In July 2015, the Browns launched the Selfless Love Foundation, a non profit that leverages technology to pair foster children with the best possible families. Ed serves as chairman of the foundation’s board and helps with brand building, lead ership, and strategic fundraising. Ashley is CEO, handling everything from forging partnerships with nonprofits to mentoring foster children to writing thank you letters— basically, she does whatever needs to be done. “My dream is not to improve child welfare but to transform it,” she says.
Social workers are often overwhelmed by large work loads, making it harder for them to connect eager adoptees with loving families, explains Ashley. Ed points out that there was a time when it was difficult for a family in MiamiDade County to adopt a child from nearby Broward County because caseworkers were limited to finding approved fam ilies within a specific zip code or county. The state’s child welfare agencies simply weren’t connected.
Selfless Love has changed that. In 2018, the foundation part nered with the nonprofit Adoption-Share and brought their revolutionary technology to Florida, allowing agencies ac cess to all adoption-approved families throughout the state.
Above: Ashley relaxing in her home office, where she spends most of her time working on the Selfless Love Foundation; (right) hard at work while dogs Blaze and Capri Lilli cheer her on. (Not pictured is the couple’s third Mal tese, Aspen Rose.)
Adoption-Share’s innovative Family-Match tech nology uses a compatibility assessment created by former senior researchers at eHarmony to better match foster children with a forever family. Thanks to the Selfless Love Foundation, the new technol ogy has been launched at child welfare agencies across the state at no cost to families or agencies.
In just four years, Ashley and her team have helped connect more than 800 kids with potential families and finalized upwards of 350 adoptions.
“These kids will never realize what a resource they have in my wife,” says Ed, as Ashley starts to tear up with emotion. “She works 10 hours a day, 7 days a week and will not stop until she finds them all good homes. Selfless Love is her passion, her love, and she will change the foster care system.”
With more than 800 children remaining in the state’s foster care system today, there’s still a lot of work to be done. But Ashley is up to the chal lenge. “Nothing energizes me more than these kids and families,” she says. “How could I even think about being tired when these kids dream of a family and a place to call home?”
For the older kids in the system, Ashley knows the clock is ticking. Each year across the nation, more than 20,000 kids age out of foster care when they turn 18. Of those, half become home less within the first two years. In 2016, through a partnership with Children’s Harbor, Selfless Love set up a housing program called Brown’s Harbor in Pembroke Pines, which provides 18- to 23-year-olds with affordable apartments, on-site

support, and guidance in a community where they feel like they belong. The goal is to help these young adults transition from dependence to independence through workshops and work opportunities that provide them with real-world skills and experience.
“All these kids want is to be loved,” says Ashley. “We ﬁnd that by being loving and giving them opportunities, we can watch them ﬂourish.”
Part of that involves providing kids with leadership training that empowers them to become the best versions of themselves and helps future foster
children too—by speaking up. Through its youth initiative One Voice Impact, Selﬂess Love works with kids so they can speak to state agencies, legislatures, and child welfare agencies about their personal experiences within the system to let people know which policies work and which ones don’t.
“What we see a lot is that adults and legislators are not engaging with the actual people being impacted,” says Ashley. “We are teaching these youths how to advocate for themselves and offer solutions on how to make the [child welfare] system better. Now adults are listening. How empowering is it for these kids to feel like they have a seat at the table and use their lived experience to make a recommendation? I get text messages from some of these kids saying, ‘For the ﬁrst time in my life, I feel like I have a voice and people want to hear me.’”
For Ashley and Ed, who have poured their hearts and souls into Selﬂess Love, witnessing these children speak their truth and soar is indescribably gratifying. The next step is spreading that love further—the Browns say they see the foundation expanding its work into other states.
Says Ashley: “I know Ed thinks Patrón is his legacy, but I promise you, Selﬂess Love is hot on its heels.” selﬂesslovefoundation.org ❖
Pat DeAloia wanted to transform her traditional Jupiter Hills Club home into a more contemporary and open space, she knew just whom to turn to: “master of the unexpected,” designer H. Allen Holmesby LINDA MARX | photography by TIM LEE
After admiring the interiors of a friend’s condominium, Pat DeAloia was eager to tap her friend’s designer to work on her own home. That person was H. Allen Holmes, a Hobe Sound–based designer who has worked on dozens of residential projects in the Hobe Sound/ Jupiter Island area throughout his 30-year design career (some of his work has been featured on the HGTV’s Top 10 series). Fif teen years and five collaborations later, Pat and her husband, Blaise, are enjoying Holmes’ most recent design in their new Jupiter Hills Club home.
In 2019, the couple decided to downsize from their 7,200-square-foot waterfront home in Jupiter to a one-story, 3,000-square-foot property in the exclusive Jupiter Hills Club, on the Martin County side of Tequesta. The 36-year-old home with two bedrooms, a great room, and two and a half baths sits on the fifteenth fairway of the golf course at Jupiter Hills Club.
Clockwise from left: In the family room, a tomato red ottoman pops against the black and white Savino sofa and loveseat; the great room features three separate seating areas and is given an even airier feel by leaving the large windows bare; the home’s entryway.
“Blaise and I are avid golfers, so Jupiter Hills was an ideal choice for us,” says Pat, who was a member of Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery & School of Art’s board of directors for nine years and president of the board for three of those years. “But we wanted to reconfigure the home’s compartmentalized spaces into a contemporary, open, interactive interior. I like to entertain and actually see my guests when they are here.”
Pat is also the founder of Integrated Technologies, a company specializing in advanced in formation technology enterprise network engineering. As CEO, she worked primarily with the U.S. Department of Defense and spent 30 years in the information technology industry. Her husband, also retired, was a pioneer in the wireless industry.
As Holmes set out to work his magic on the DeAloias’ new home, he worked with Hobe Sound–based Carrere General Contractors and Innocenti & Webel Landscape Architects. When he first looked at the living spaces and talked with the team, he knew there would be a lot of work ahead. He would need to collapse some walls to open up the living and dining rooms into one grand space ideal for entertaining. “Where the bar is located in the living room now was a separate dining room and another space when we started the project in 2019,” says Holmes. “We took down walls because it was too compartmentalized. Pat doesn’t like the feeling of claustrophobia, and she loves light, so we added windows where needed.”
Overall, the space now feels much more open and modern, with smooth white walls and ceilings, white porcelain flooring, and unique contemporary lighting synchronized via computer and aimed perfectly around certain fixtures. Clean lines, bright spaces with lots of windows, and many open areas to showcase the couple’s art collection flow throughout the home. “We have always tried to blend modern features into our homes,” says Pat, who
dabbles in collecting with Blaise, buying and selling various pieces of art. “Contemporary design is art-friendly, allowing us to feature our diverse collection without competing with ornate decor,” she adds.
As you enter the home through double doors that resemble a large window, you arrive at the entryway with a block wall that adds texture to the space. The wall is made of pan els from Mexico and was inspired by the work of American sculptor Louise Nevelson. The entrance is an ideal space to showcase the couple’s colorful, modern French painting on one wall, as well as the stainless-steel sculpture by Czech artist Alex Kveton that sits on a black wood base and granite pedestal. A beautiful velvet chair and a vertical work depict ing angels from the Lighthouse ArtCenter help set the stage for the art-filled home.
After the entryway, you enter the great room, a combination of living and dining areas with an open kitchen that overlooks the entire space. Holmes utilized artwork and accessories to add color to the white backdrop of the room, made even more open and bright by omitting window treatments.
There are three sitting areas in the great room, the largest of which is dominated by a colorful oil work by American abstract painter Brian Rutenberg. A yellow mushroom seat designed by Holmes picks up color from the painting. The vignette is rounded out with a pair of vintage white Vladimir Kagan sofas, colorful custom throw pillows, and a six-leg,

white octopus cocktail table atop a custom, handsewn white rug.
A few steps away stands a striking black and white geometric Ziqqurat high cabinet with red de tail, a great piece for both starting conversations and storing collectibles. Holmes came upon the piece in Italy, and the DeAloias love it. “Allen’s style is just enough,” says Pat. “It is never overwhelming or distracting. He is a visionary and imaginative, a master of the unexpected.”
Across the room is a black lacquer painted bar with a granite slab top. The integrated sink, a ma jor design feat that is free-shaped and resembles a lake, pops up when needed. “It’s my quarry sink,” says Holmes. “It reminds me of New England with a beach and lake inside.” Above the bar is a rect angular portrait of a crowd wearing sunglasses by self-taught Colombian artist Jorge Lujan.
A few steps away is a beautifully scaled Decca GAIT rectangular glass dining table with metal legs complemented by Poltrona Frau Fitzgerald leather dining chairs. The table can accommodate 8 to 10 people for the couple’s frequent dinner parties.
Near the dining table is the second sitting area, which showcases sleek, acrylic swivel bucket chairs (for easy interactivity) surrounding a black painted wood coffee table with stainless steel bars. The whimsical dog collectible atop the table adds color and fun to the space and was purchased by the DeAloias in Santa Fe.
Adjacent, the third vignette is ideal for smaller gatherings. Holmes created a clever high-low round glass table that rises 30 inches and turns. “This table is good for lunch with the ladies or dinner for two,” says Pat, who loves to cook. Stylish black and white Donghia Lana club chairs complete the sitting area.
The ebb and flow continues in the sleek, clean-lined kitchen, which is as functional as it is spectacular. The space was gutted during the renova tion, and a marble island was added to be a point of interest as well as a perfect place for storage and eating. Painted white Donghia Anziano chairs face the island, Sub-Zero appliances line the window wall, and the backsplash turns into the windowsill to create one clean edge. To the side, Holmes created a ledge that gives the appearance that the ceiling is almost floating.
A big challenge was the family room. The some what dated design included a wooden ceiling, a bay window, and only a 6-foot opening to the kitchen.
“It was not attractive,” says Holmes, bluntly. “So we opened the room to the kitchen and added a door into the garage. The window on the right was origi nally a door.”
The furniture and patterns in the family room feature Pat’s favorite decor colors: black and white. Simple, white leather de Sede lounge chairs get a boost from a tomato-colored ottoman. A black and white geometricpatterned Savino leather sofa and loveseat bookend the room, with a Cavan Carpets Everest area rug ty ing it all together. Two strong pieces of art stand out:
Allen is a visionary and imaginative, a master of the unexpected.”

Pat prefers to keep the master bedroom fairly modest, and Holmes achieved that with a gray area rug, a platform bed with fitted bed spread, and subtle underlighting beneath the platform. “It’s a simple setting when I watch late-night news,” says Pat. The designer added sophistication and style with the selection of a Phillip Lloyd Powell–style brutalist mid-century silver-leaf ebonized credenza, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Cooper full-swivel chairs, and Thayer Coggin black lacquer nightstands.
In the master bath, the couple can slip away into serenity in the minimalist space with two rectangular sinks and white mirrored medi cine cabinets that slide out like the garage door.
In contrast to the subdued master bedroom, the guest bedroom beckons overnight visitors with color. Custom multicolored throw pil lows create a splash on the bed, while two George Nelson Herman Miller mid-century modern steel-frame chests of drawers (one yellow, the other orange) flank the bed. A piece by German-American pop art ist Peter Max hangs above the bed. “This is a fun room,” says Pat. “Allen

The guest bath comes to life with a paint ing of a woman relaxing in a pool by Jupiterbased artist Kris Davis (who is a staff artist at Lighthouse ArtCenter), a harbor scene pur chased in Charleston, South Carolina, and a small sculpture of a man doing a one-armed handstand on a ball, evocative of a Cirque du Soleil act. Even the powder room—with a round-edge mirror, a metal door cabinet, and a sleek white glass countertop with an integrated sink—is a clever work of art.
“Allen loves the unexpected,” says Pat. “When friends come to our home for the first time, they know they are about to see something they have never seen before.” hallenholmesinc.com ❖

Local architects, designers, and contractors discuss the beneﬁts of sustainable building and highlight a few projects that will hopefully pave the way to a greener futureby VALERIE STAGGS
e all ﬁnd ourselves admonishing the kids for leaving lights on and wasting energy, but the truth is, the energy thief is not the people living in your house—it’s your home itself. According to a 2020 Global Status Report released by the International Energy Agency and the United Nations Environment Programme, buildings like your home and ofﬁce represent around 40 percent of both global energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, making buildings a major contributor to climate change.
Thankfully, many professionals constructing buildings today are committed to using green building processes to reduce the impact their industry has on the health of humans and the environment. Palm City–based Abney + Abney Green Solutions is a sustainable building consulting ﬁrm that works with owners, developers, architects, and builders on green projects. Owner Kyle Abney explains that sustainable building, commonly referred to as green building, encompasses numerous different elements of the building process.
“Sustainable building utilizes best-in-class building strategies and
practices in ﬁve key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efﬁciency, material selection, and indoor environmental quality,” he says.
“In short, sustainable buildings are designed to help reduce the overall impact on the environment and human health before, during, and after construction.”
A ﬁfth-generation Floridian and the son of a builder, Abney ﬁrst discovered the concept of sustainable design as a student at the University of Florida. At that time, he also learned there was a lack of environmentally friendly design happening and large amounts of waste regularly generated by construction. Passionate about creating change, he became the ﬁrst person in the United States to obtain a construction degree with a concentration in sustainable building.
Abney recognized early on that the need for sustainable building was even more critical in South Florida. “Given our unique environment, climate resiliency is a
significant focus,” he says. “With Florida’s sea level rising as much as an inch every three years, according to NOAA [National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration] tidal station data, factoring nature’s upcoming shifts into construction plans is crucial. We must reduce our energy and water use so future generations have access to these essential resources.”
One of Abney’s favorite sustainable design projects is Sailfish Splash Waterpark in Stuart. Built in 2012, the park’s building strategies included diverting 75 percent of construction waste from landfills by recycling and salvaging construction and land clearing waste. The project also achieved a 39 percent savings in energy performance by incorporating systems such as sensors that automatically turn off lighting whenever occu pants leave a space. “It’s a project we completed several years ago but continues to earn me ‘cool dad’ points,” says Abney.
Bill Daly, vice president of Carrere General Contractors in Hobe Sound, called on Abney for help when a local couple came to him and asked him to build a sustainable home—the first truly “green home” in Martin County. The completed single-family home in the Floridian National Golf Club in Palm City earned a Gold LEED certification. (LEED—Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design—certification is a globally recognized sym bol of sustainability achievement and leadership. Gold is the second-highest level of certification.)
“The process was entirely different than the tra ditional construction process,” says Daly. “You have
to be very specific about the materials you use.” Many of the materials were sourced from within a 500-mile radius, including cypress and heart pine that was river-recovered (a process of re claiming wood from river bottoms) from the north Florida area and used for floors, ceilings, and doors. The home earned extra points for energy efficiency and utilizing solar and gas.
While it is rare for a home to achieve such a high level of sustainable design, Daly credits the homeowners for their progressive mindset toward green building. After all, it is projects like these that hopefully will create a ripple effect, prompting more homeowners to consider the environment in their renovation or construction plans.
“Builders need to educate them selves on the latest sustainable products and work them into their designs,” says Robert Brandon Jr., president of Jupiter-based Atlantic Crest Homes. Brandon has been designing and building homes in South Florida for more than 30 years, most recently in Abacoa in Jupiter and the Rivella community in Port St. Lucie. He con tinuously seeks out new ways to build with minimal environmental impact while still delivering maximum benefits to homeowners. “Sustainable building starts at the beginning of a project with considerations like how to orient the home to minimize sun exposure,” says Bran don. “Everything from choice of insulation to what paint you use to which appliances go into your kitchen can make a big difference in conserving energy and saving our planet.”
Brandon regularly opts for features that reduce energy consumption, including high-efficiency appliances, tankless water heaters, UV-protective exterior paint, high R-value insulation, and Low-E (emissive) impact windows that reflect heat. For
interior finishes, he uses sustainable materials such as bamboo flooring and Mohawk Everstrand car peting made from 100 percent recycled materials.
He encourages homeowners to do their own independent research before building a new res idence and become informed about the process. “Sustainable products have gotten more costeffective, and it doesn’t take very long for a home buyer to reap the long-term benefits of energy savings and efficiency,” he says.
On the commercial front, two local corpora tions are leading the way in green building in our area. Carrier Global Corporation’s headquarters, located just east of I-95 off Donald Ross Road in
Bill Daly of Carrere General Contractors says this Palm City home was built using materials sourced from within a 500-mile radius, including river-recovered cypress and heart pine from north Florida used for flooring, ceilings, and doors. The home also utilizes solar and gas for maximum energy efficiency.
Palm Beach Gardens, was the first commercial building in the state to earn LEED Platinum certification. A world leader in building and cold chain solutions such as HVAC, refrigeration, and fire and security, Carrier designed the 224,000-square-foot building known as the Center for Intelligent Buildings with green-forward technology like Abound, a cloud-based digital
platform that tracks, manages, and reports factors such as energy efficiency and carbon emissions within the building, allowing for real-time adjustments.
A little farther south, Florida Power & Light’s brand new office building near I-95 and PGA Boulevard fea tures not only the energy efficiency you would expect from the largest power utility in Florida but a host of sustainable aspects inside and out as well. The sixstory, 266,000-square-foot building is constructed with LED lighting, low flow plumbing fixtures, high-performance mechanical systems, and 38 electric vehicle charging stations. A solar array on the top level of the parking structure generates renewable energy while providing shade. The building, which houses 1,000 employees, is designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, allowing the utility to continue operations if it is forced to leave its Juno Beach headquarters.
When architect Niki Norton was building her new office space in Stuart, she brought her love for sustainable design
into the equation. The N2 Architecture + Design building on Southeast Ocean Boulevard features a front desk made from reclaimed rough fawn cedar, workstations built with wood doors, and chair rails created from old wood parquet ﬂoors that were rescued after a law ofﬁce renovation. In 2017, the N2 ofﬁce was awarded “Most Outstanding Green Interior Design – Small” by the U.S. Green Building Council.
“If I’m promoting building green and being sustainable, I need to show that in my ofﬁce,” says Norton, who also updated the lighting system to LED and stripped the ﬂoors down to concrete for a more energy-efﬁcient environment. “I am always interested in energy efﬁciency, especially in Florida where it is hot, hot, hot!”
Norton is quick to educate her clients on the merits of sustainable design and why it is smart and not as costly as they may think. “There is a misconception about the cost of being sustainable,” she says. “I like to use the example of insulation and HVAC tonnage.” Norton explains that using the right insulation in the right places helps create a “building envelope,” which is everything that separates the internal building from the external environment. Better protection from Florida’s heat on the outside means that inside, the HVAC unit doesn’t have to work as hard. “You can buy a lower tonnage unit and save a lot of money if you invest in better insulation,” she adds.
Norton is hopeful about the future of sustainable design, noting that green building materials are more readily available today. “I would like to see more general contractors and design-build professionals take advantage of the sustainable products that are available now and make a difference,” she says.
Kyle Abney sees the industry already changing for the better. “Two decades ago, green building certiﬁcations were introduced and set the precedent for change,” he says. “I believe that 20 years from now, there will likely be less need for ‘green-certiﬁed’ projects because greenbuilding practices are already being incorporated into building codes.”
It is a future that has been a long time coming. “What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?” Henry David Thoreau wrote in the nineteenth century. With sustainable building practices becoming more and more prevalent, future generations will be able to enjoy both a comfortable house and a healthy planet around it.

Rey and Michelle Mendez, owners of the Rustic Rooster in Stuart, have been using reclaimed and sustainable materials to create custom home furnishings since 2003. Here, they offer tips on how you can incorporate sustainable design elements into your existing home. rusticroosterinc.com
Embrace reclaimed wood. When choosing furniture, Rey loves to see imported teak and pine in cabinets and tables. Barn wood is plentiful in the United States and can be used in a variety of furniture and decor.
Choose eco-friendly upholstery. Furniture manufacturers like Rowe use fabrics produced with natural and renewable ﬁbers, as well as wood from replenished, domestic forests for the frames.
Reﬁnish existing pieces. “If Grandma’s old dresser is avocado green, you can do something with that,” says Michelle. Quality wood pieces can get a new, modern look with eco-friendly paints and ﬁnishes.
Repurpose. Many materials can be reimagined for a different use. “Antique doors make great wall art or a headboard for a bed,” says Michelle. Metal pipes, tree roots, old bricks, and weathered wood can all be repurposed into home decor.
Go for quality. If you are going to buy new, save up for a quality piece. “Invest in solid wood furniture instead of things that aren’t sustainably sourced,” says Michelle. “You’ll have it a long time and can always reﬁnish it later.”

When culinary partners Scott Frielich, Cleve Mash, and Angelo Abbenante first walked through the doors of what used to be a truck stop in Jupi ter nearly 75 years ago, they were immediately inspired to create their next project. Taking over the old Shipwreck Bar & Grille locale, which closed in 2021, the men set out to launch Blackbird, a modern Asian concept bringing the flavors of traditional Chinese to Jupiter locals. The swanky digs feature a two-story, 5,500-square-foot space with three dining areas, two cocktail bars, and an outdoor mezzanine on the second floor that overlooks both the Jupiter Light house and the Loxahatchee River.
The partners bring a wealth of experience to Blackbird. Frielich is the vice president of Subculture Group and the brains behind 16 culinary concepts between West Palm
Beach and Miami. Abbenante owns the Lynora’s brand. And Mash is the nightlife guru behind hot spots like Clematis Social and Radius. With Blackbird, says Frielich, it’s about “being captivated by different cultures and inspiring beauty in such an unexpected location.”
To bring their culinary vision to life, the partners called upon Executive Chef Tim Nickey, known for helming nu merous local haunts including PapiChulo, Lucky Shuck, and celebrity favorite Komodo in Miami. Now a fourth partner in Blackbird, Nickey took inspiration from recent travels to create the menu at the new restaurant. “Traveling
through Asia has been extremely inspiring in creating new and innovative dishes in our area,” says Nickey. “Bringing culture to our community through food is a wonderful joy to be able to provide.”
The Far East–inspired menu comprises modern riffs of Chinatown-style staples, dim sum, and elevated Pan Asian delights. Stand out dishes include smoked brisket ramen, Korean cauliflower, salmon with “everything bagel” Rangoon bites, and sweet and sour pork made with twice-cooked pork belly, dragon fruit, pineapple, and crispy shallots. The Emper or’s Selection, which can serve up to four people, includes Pe king duck, Chinese pancakes, Beijing garnish, hoisin sauce, and a 32-ounce Australian Wagyu rib eye with truffle-soy butter.
On the cocktail front, expect to find an array of innovative drinks that are as sexy as the restaurant space. The menu in cludes 10 made-from-scratch cocktails including the namesake Black bird—Skyy vodka, Amara Lucana, chai, cold brew, vanilla cream, and activated charcoal, garnished with a fortune cookie. There is also an expansive collection of Japanese sakes that pair well with various dinner items.
To curate the dessert selections, the team brought in Executive Pastry Chef Denise El rod, a certified chocolatier from Las Vegas who has worked at Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio and Thomas Keller’s Bouchon at The Venetian. The shareable treats range from a fun Asian State Fair funnel cake with matcha ice cream to a decadent chocolate bomb with salted peanut brittle ice cream, caramelized bananas, fresh strawberries, and dark chocolate.
When designing the space itself, the part ners paid respect to the existing feel of the building by repurposing existing artifacts, millwork, iron, and metal that date back to the 1950s. They tapped interior designer Kat Solomon to add modern, glamorous Southeast Asian touches, replete with LEDlit paper birds, a 12-foot Buddha, and murals by local artist Amanda Valdes.
“The ambience has an upscale vibe that’s mysterious and sexy yet industrial with iron accents and concrete stained red floors,” says Frielich. “It is very much a space of such that you would find in Las Vegas or New York City. There is nothing else like it in our area.” 1511 N. Old Dixie Hwy., Jupiter; blackbirdmodernasian.com; 561.589.7505
Three college students in Washington, D.C. wanted a healthier, more sustainable option near campus and decided to reimagine fast food. That’s how Sweetgreen was born, a concept that rapidly expanded to nearly 1,000 locations throughout the country today. The brand’s latest outpost recently arrived in Downtown Palm Beach Gardens, bringing its signature plant-forward, earth-friendly vibe to our area. Sweetgreen’s namesake delights are the creative, colorful salads customized with multiple vegan and vegetarian options that change seasonally. From the Guacamole Greens to the Buffalo Chicken Bowl, the salads bring freshness to a whole new level. Specialty items available include bowls like the Shroomami (roasted sesame tofu, warm portobello mix, raw beets, cucumbers, basil, sunflower seeds, warm wild rice, and shredded kale in a miso sesame ginger dressing) and the Chicken Pesto Parm (roasted chicken, spicy broccoli, tomatoes, shaved Parmesan, za’atar breadcrumbs, warm quinoa, baby spinach, Sweetgreen hot sauce, and pesto vinaigrette). Sweetgreen sources its ingredients from a network of small and midsize local growers, which makes the whole concept that much sweeter. sweetgreen.com
