FOUR SEASONS PRIVATE RESIDENCES ORLANDO

Mary Thurman Yuhas or a fortunate few, the happiest place on earth can also be home. Located in Golden Oak, an exclusive and secluded community at Walt Disney World Resort, are the Four Seasons Private Residences, a semitropical new community of unique luxury homes infused with all of the expected amenities and the unexpected coalesced with the magic of Disney. Safely ensconced in a continuously guard-gated neighborhood, glimpses of the traditionally styled and often multigenerational residences-- ranging from 5,000 to 18,000-square-feet--can be seen rising above the ubiquitous leafy hedge rows that line the palm-laden streets. Adding to the ambience of this fun and sun-kissed lifestyle are the old fashioned streetlights that at night cast a warm glow over the pleasant, family-friendly locale. Only the sounds of children’s laughter and tropical birds living in the surrounding wetlands and preserves interrupt the tranquil environment. Yet Magic Kingdom Park is just a few miles away.

A few of the many exceptional services offered to residents via an annual fee are: à la carte services from the adjacent 5-star Four Seasons Resort (every home has a butler pantry with a private access door, an oven warming drawer and refrigerator which allows hotel staff to drop off food and/or laundry day or night without disturbing the family. A locked door inside the home limits access), use of the resort’s kid and teen-friendly swimming pool and lazy river accessed by residents through a nearby private gate, a dedicated Director of Residences for Four Seasons homeowners and membership in the Golden Oak Club, a private social and recreational club including transportation to the theme parks and planned activities limited to Club members. The Orlando area is served by the Orlando International Airport, Kissimmee Gateway Airport and Orlando Executive Airport for those electing to fly private.

CAPEHART

I must confess: December is my favorite month. I love the spirit of warmth, generosity, and merriment that permeates this time of year, and I’d venture to say it’s more palpable in Palm Beach than anywhere else. The people of our community genuinely stand together in sharing their good fortune to ensure everyone has a memorable holiday, especially children with limited opportunities. One of the best gifts a child can receive is a proper education and a foundation in good citizenship. Thanks to David and Jill Gilmour and other generous Palm Beachers, that will soon be a reality for a few hundred local youngsters who might otherwise fall prey to negative influences. With the opening of the Erin H. Gilmour Early Learning Center, named for David’s late daughter, the Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center will expand to three times its capacity and add programming that until now had been a dream. The official opening is next month, but the Gilmours are already plotting the expansion of this concept to other communities that desperately need it. Read about this game-changing act of altruism in “A Legacy of Love,” on page 82. If that’s not enough to give you the holiday feels, turn to page 94 and enjoy an “Island Holiday” with Kay Iselin Gilman. Kay, a powerhouse businesswoman and author who now enjoys a more relaxed pace in Palm Beach, drew inspiration from family Christmases past to host a soiree that is equal parts tradition and fun. True to her perfectionist nature, everything was beautifully coordinated in sorbet colors, down to the parting gift of Sugarfinas. One of the cherished traditions I enjoy with my children is seeing The Nutcracker on stage. This year, we saw it on the big screen as well, at least a twisted version of it. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, the fantasy film based on the ballet, prompted the pictorial beginning on page 100. We asked four talented pastry chefs to each take one realm—Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, Land of Sweets, and the mystical Fourth Realm—and recreate it in sugar. I, for one, was blown away by their artistry. See for yourself in “Magical Journey.” Regardless of how you celebrate, I hope you will be inspired by our pages and the spirit behind them. Wishing you an ever-sparkling season and new year!

If you haven’t been to Swank Specialty Produce for a master-chef dinner under the pole barn, you’re missing an extraordinary evening of food, fun, and friendship. Page 117. SO MUCH HAPPENING THIS MONTH! I’M ESPECIALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO ANN NORTON SCULPTURE GARDENS’ “AN EVENING WITH IRIS APFEL,” THAT INDEFATIGABLE GERIATRIC STARLET, AT CAFÉ L’EUROPE. PAGE 176.

to Celebrate Make the most of this special season with festive events

county, including Downtown at the Gardens, Worth Avenue, Mizner Park, and even a 100-foot tree in Delray Beach. For something different, check out Sandi at the West Palm Beach Waterfront, or head over to The Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach. Last year, The Royal crafted a tree out of surfboards. For 2018, artist Donald Robertson has reimagined the tree and plaza decor. 2. Menorah lightings.

CityPlace will present a Chanukah Family Festival on December 5, and Temple Beth El of Boca Raton will host Chanukah Under the Stars at Mizner Park Amphitheater December 7. 3. Holiday parades. Take your merriment to the streets with local holiday parades. The City of Boca Raton will mount its forty-eighth annual procession on December 5, and Delray Beach follows suit December 8. 4.

If you need some alone time, fret not: Art Basel also offers a free kindergarten and playroom program for children ages 4 to 12. A team from the Miami Children’s Museum will watch over your young one and help him or her make arts and crafts while you tour the convention center. For Palm Beachers: The Society of the Four Arts (fourarts.org) hosts an annual field trip to Art Basel, taking place this year on December 7. Participants will depart the Four Arts, tour the festival with art expert Sofia Vollmer Maduro, and return to Palm Beach the same day. The Armory Art Center (armoryart.org) will also mount a field trip south on the same day.

COURTESY ART BASEL

When: Public days December 6-9 Where: Miami Beach Convention Center Who: More than 200 galleries from North and Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, displaying top works by modern, contemporary, and up-and-coming artists. Highlights: In addition to its main exhibition area, Art Basel also houses special sectors that cater to different concepts within contemporary art dialogues. Nova, for instance, invites galleries to display works created within the last three years, allowing for a sense of immediacy and excitement. Positions, on the other hand, are spaces devoted to one new talent presenting one major project. In contrast to both Nova and Positions, Survey looks to the past with pieces made before the year 2000. Getting there: With the launch of Brightline services to Miami earlier this year, art lovers can now arrive at Art Basel without languishing in I-95 traffic. It takes one hour to travel from West Palm Beach to the Brightline MiamiCentral Station. From there, order up a Lyft (Brightline’s official rideshare partner) for the short drive to the convention center.

MORE IS MORE FOR EVEN MORE FINE ART, VISIT THE ART MIAMI MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR (ARTMIAMI. COM), WHICH RUNS CONCURRENTLY, FROM DECEMBER 5-9, AT ONE MIAMI HERALD PLAZA. THERE’S ALSO DESIGN MIAMI (MIAMI2018.DESIGNMIAMI.COM), HELD ADJACENT TO THE MIAMI BEACH CONVENTION CENTER DECEMBER 5-9.

LIFE of the Party In the colorful world of Jeff Fowler, every event is an unforgettable celebration. As a student at the Culinary Institute of America, Fowler first came to Palm Beach for an internship at The Breakers. The beach, sunshine, and allure of the historic hotel hooked him. Little did he know he would go on to spend 25 years and counting with the lauded hospitality institution. Today, as The Breakers’ senior event sales manager, the energetic and imaginative party planner has become synonymous with orchestrating over-the-top celebrity weddings and social events. Fowler’s signature joie de vivre applies to all areas of his life, especially his wardrobe and home—dubbed Casa Gaga—in West Palm Beach’s Old Northwood neighborhood, where he hosts his own elaborate gatherings. —Liz Petoniak

In the early 1900s, the head of the Caledonian Railway Company sought to build a destination hotel for wealthy train travelers (sound familiar?), a place he deemed “a palace in the glens.” In Perthshire, on a long stretch of moorlands in the shadow of the Ochil Hills and the Trossachs, he laid out two master

Warslin’ Lea (Wrestling Ground), and the reaction will likely be a combination of exaltation and vexation (ah, the sweet dichotomy of golf). Since those early days, a third course, the PGA Centenary, has been added. This tour de force by Jack Nicklaus has hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup and is due to welcome the 2019 Solheim Cup. If you can avoid being distracted by the awesome panorama that is the Scottish countryside, this is some of the best golf anywhere. Gleneagles has come a long way since Matheson’s day—though you can still arrive by train to the hotel’s own station. Now owned by Ennismore, the legendary property features an 62

For a full dose of British tradition, put on Wellingtons, chaps, and Barbour coats (all supplied by the British School of Falconry) and spend a day in the woods with a trained falconer and the BSF Harris hawks. There’s something very Zen about walking beneath a leafy canopy at the edge of a glen, releasing hawks to hunt, and working with them in tandem to locate game. It doesn’t always yield a reward, but it does deliver a closer connection with the birds of prey. Considering the rugged terrain, it could be argued that Scotland is one of the best spots in the world for off-roading. Jump into one of Gleneagles’ Land Rover Defenders and explore

Adding to Gleneagles’ allure is the recent large-scale renovation that transitioned the property to a modern country style—a combination of tradition and innovation.

The hotel’s latest contribution to modern British style is a pair of game-changing suites by architect André Fu. The new Pavilion Suites are massive by London standards—2,300 square feet each—and designed like residential apartments. The Crescent and Grand Pavilions are surrounded by glass for (sometimes) sun-drenched views of Belgravia and St. Paul’s Church, and feature outdoor terraces and gardens that are ideal for cocktailing among the fabled London rooftops. The interior design is all contemporary luxury,

The Perry Hotel in Key West prioritizes good food and gastronomic experiences By Mary Murray

66

Aesthetically, The Perry embraces a modern nautical design. It brings that same philosophy to food, and its main restaurant, Matt’s, serves great, approachable grub with fine-dining nuance.

While Duval Street is a brief shuttle ride away, it’s just as alluring to spend a long weekend at The Perry, sipping a craft beer poolside, indulging in a sunset cruise with Sunset Sail Key West, or snorkeling with charters such as Lost Reef Adventures. Those who wish to further explore the area can hop on a sightseeing adventure with Key West Jet Ski Tours and glide past such landmarks as Fort Zachary Taylor. Back at The Perry, memories are made among friends and food. At Matt’s, expect to see references to the island’s fishing-centric past, like a seafood tower presented in a tackle box. You’ll also notice a distinctly Lowcountry sensibility among these Keys ingredients, and that’s all courtesy of chef Kalen Fortuna. Here, the 30-year-old South Carolina native cooks crave-worthy dishes, including a cornbread mash that will occupy your dreams for weeks. Fortuna works closely with local monger Fishbusterz to ensure he’s serving the best.

COURTESY OF THE PERRY HOTEL

Just when you think you’ve seen every inch of Key West, another part of this southernmost paradise unveils itself. Case in point: Stock Island. This working waterfront for shrimpers and fishermen has gone through a reinvention and is now home to The Perry Hotel, a culinary destination for travelers and residents alike. Since debuting last year, The Perry has earned a reputation for its stellar food and beverage program that includes Salty Oyster, a relaxed bar with mammoth chicken wings, and Matt’s, a higher-end (by Keys standards) resto run by a talented young chef. The hotel’s industrial-meets-nautical design has garnered acclaim, as well. Named one of Architectural Digest’s 12 best designed hotels of 2017, The Perry feels like an elevated wharf building with interiors that marry ship-inspired wood and metal details with a cool, oceanic color palette.

Whether it be grouper, hogfish, or snapper, Fortuna and his team will present it in a memorable way. His must-try creations range from blue crab beignets accented with Old Bay aioli, to a seafood chowder that screams for bread to sop up every last drop. End the meal with one of his beer floats—think: a raspberry Lambic paired with ginger ice cream—around the firepit. The Perry’s culinary commitment extends to special events. It regularly hosts one-night-only dining experiences on property and collaborates with area businesses and chefs for off-site projects, like the Lost Kitchen Supper Club, a pop-up concept that celebrates local food history and products. But regardless of how you dine during your stay at The Perry, one thing’s for sure: Come hungry and ready to watch that “bikini body” grow. (perrykeywest.com) «

KRAKOW Culture

VIBE Old World, artsy, vibrant

KAYLA MENDEZ

Growing up in Krakow, Poland, jewelry designer Idalia Baudo was aware of the destination’s artistic and cultural renaissance before the rest of the world caught on. Once the center of Poland’s Golden Age, Krakow still enchants with magical environs and Old World poeticism. Baudo returns frequently so her young children, Jack and Sophie, can understand their heritage. When in town, the family stays at her mother’s apartment, conveniently located in Rynek, Krakow’s medieval main square filled with outdoor restaurants, pubs, and international passersby. When she’s not traveling or designing jewelry for her eponymous brand, the Atlantis resident can be found doing yoga or CrossFit, biking the Lake Trail with her family, or having a date night at HMF with her husband, Chris. —Liz Petoniak

SIGNATURE DRINK The locals favor beer, with Zywiec being the most popular.

Wawel Castle

BEST TIME TO GO Late spring through October

HOMETOWN GOODS TO SAMPLE AND STOCKPILE Local china, table decor, and beautifully crafted tablecloths from Punca (punca.com.pl), and the superb collection of confections from Wedel (wedel.com), the famous chocolate maker.

BEST WAY TO START THE DAY After having breakfast at Hotel Copernicus (copernicus.hotel. com.pl), I love to take a walk down Kanonicza Street, one of the oldest cobblestone streets, which ends at the foot of the hilltop Wawel Castle (wawel. krakow.pl).

BEST WAY TO SPEND A FREE MORNING At a museum since Krakow is filled with art and history. The most fascinating is Rynek Underground (podzie miarynku.com), an interactive exhibition of what life used to be like in Krakow centuries ago.

LOCAL DISH TO DREAM ABOUT Dessert from Noworolski Café (noworolski.com.pl). My favorite is ambrosia with ice cream, fresh fruit, and liqueur. WHERE TO SHOP Plac Nowy in Kazimierz for antique bazaars and markets. For something more traditional, I go to the Galeria Krakowska mall (galeria krakowska.pl). BEST SEAT IN TOWN Wierzynek (wierzynek.pl). It is one of the oldest restaurants in the Main Square, dating back to 1364, and occupies four floors, featuring unique, historic dining rooms. It’s a gourmet heaven dedicated to the traditional royal art of feasting. 68

The new Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa is a great base for exploring Hutchinson Island. Dine at the on-site Drift Kitchen + Bar, which celebrates the sea’s bounty in sleek surrounds.

STAYCATIONS

A SHORE Thing

Hutchinson Shores elevates its namesake island’s COASTAL COOL VIBE By Daphne Nikolopoulos Hutchinson Island, just east of Stuart off the Martin County coast, is known as a laid-back destination with family-friendly activities and an abundance of natural beauty. But until recently, it had eluded the radar of the luxury traveler. What changed? The emergence of Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa (hutchinson shores.com), which brings a modern coastal aesthetic to an island that hasn’t seen a new resort open in nearly 20 years. Subdued elegance is the name of the game here. The resort’s 178 guest rooms are decorated in nautical blues and driftwood-hued woods, nodding to seaside living with charming beachhouse furnishings, shiplap paneling, and sailing motifs. Sophisticated travelers will appreciate the design details, down to the herringbonepatterned floors and navy scallop tiles in the shower, not to mention the Nest toiletries. Of course, no one comes to the Treasure

Coast to sit inside a room, especially when such fun activities beckon. Hutchinson Island (floridashutchinsonisland.com) claims one of South Florida’s most prolific sea turtle populations, and because the beaches aren’t as crowded as those to the south, it’s easy to watch both nesting and hatching in the summer months. Florida Oceanographic Society (floridaocean.org) offers nighttime tours that are equal parts education and recreation. Hutchinson Island is also unique in that it allows horseback riding on the beach. The reason is the same for visiting this area to begin with: The shore is not over-developed. Departing from Frederick Douglass Memorial Park, horse tours (beachtoursonhorseback. com) provide a new perspective on the beach experience as the horses walk and trot along the surf. Since this is not offered elsewhere in South Florida, it’s a must during a trip to the Treasure Coast.

A big part of the waterfront lifestyle is dining on the ocean’s edge, and there’s no better place to do it than Drift Kitchen + Bar at Hutchinson Shores. With indoor and outdoor seating, Drift serves a view with all of its inspired dining options. Start with a bright appetizer like tuna poke with avocado salsa and citrus ponzu, and move on to one of the house-made pastas. The Old Country Pappardelle with braised short rib, tomatoes, and Tuscan kale is not exactly diet food, but it’s worth every savory bite. In a place so secluded, you might be tempted to think there’s no nightlife, but that’s not so. Hutchinson Shores has a lively lounge with entertainment, and downtown Stuart is a short drive inland. The Lyric Theatre (lyrictheatre. com) is an active, if intimate, venue for a wide variety of performances. Of the restaurant and bar scene, The Gafford (thegafford.com) and Eighteen Seminole Street (18seminole.com) are standouts, the former for its delicious Southern cuisine (the fried chicken is beyond) and bar atmosphere, the latter for elegant Italian food in a quaint historic home. Stroll along Colorado Avenue and Seminole Street down to the Riverwalk, where there’s always a free concert or other event that brings the Treasure Coast experience to life. «

This is arguably the most driver-centric convertible available. And now, it’s time to find out what this screaming projectile is all about. Press a hidden button and the swinging scissor door—deemed “dihedral” in McLaren speak—hinges upward. It’s a company trademark that never fails to draw “oohs” and “aahs” from onlookers. This is a low, low beast, so clambering in is never elegant. Yet dropping down into the beautifully formfitting driver’s seat feels like entering a fighter-jet cockpit. Only the oddly positioned seat controls (they’re out of sight and nearly impossible to reach) detract from an otherwise superb design.

In Good Hands

Renowned surgeon offers game-changing options for less invasive heart surgery

“Dr. Stewart was highly and uniquely qualified. I’m happy and grateful I found him, and I’m delighted to have a new start.” John Bakewell, open-heart surgery patient

Allan Stewart, M.D., has worked with his hands and with all his heart — his entire life. His grandparents gave him tools and broken toys for Christmas, a fun challenge for his young brain. Little did the family elders know they were priming their grandson to become one of the world’s premier cardiac surgeons, able to take apart the center of a defective human heart and figure out a way to rebuild it. “I was always inspired to work with my hands and fix broken things,” explained Dr. Stewart, an ambidextrous surgeon known for his innovation in complex aortic surgery and his heartfelt bedside manner. Committed to expanding its leadership, Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute at Baptist Health recruited Dr. Stewart last summer from New York City’s Mount Sinai Health System. As the Institute’s new chief of cardiac surgery, Dr. Stewart is performing advanced open-heart procedures with tiny “keyhole” incisions that cause less trauma to the body and promote a faster recovery.

786-596-6153 BaptistHealth.net/Stewart

“Dr. Stewart’s expertise benefits patients in the community and from around the world as he continues to advance the field and train other surgeons in these lifesaving techniques,” said Barry T. Katzen, M.D., founder and chief medical executive of the Institute, known for its pioneering, multidisciplinary approach to cardiovascular care. “Working as a team of physicians representing various specialties, we stay laser focused on each patient,” said Dr. Stewart. “Our cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, interventional

radiologists and other professionals each bring a unique perspective and contribute to a highly individualized course of treatment.” Dr. Stewart enjoys developing personal bonds with his patients. He uses plain language to explain the anatomy of the heart and the surgical plans, and he always gives patients his cell phone number. “I want people to know that I’m listening to them. I want to engage with them,” he said. Dr. Stewart has already attracted people from around the country for a complex open-heart operation that only a handful of surgeons perform routinely with a high success rate: a valve-sparing aortic root replacement. John Bakewell traveled from his home in Nashville after researching the country’s top cardiac surgeons. “It was a very easy decision,” said Mr. Bakewell, 57, who was walking a mile a day within a week of his surgery. “Dr. Stewart was highly and uniquely qualified. I’m happy and grateful I found him, and I’m delighted to have a new start.”

David and Jill Gilmour’s investment in early childhood education is more than a passion project. It’s a bona fide solution. By Daphne Nikolopoulos and Lola Thélin Photography by Michael Price

“Having just one child in an early learning center elevates the whole family’s esteem.”

On a weekday afternoon, David Gilmour strolls the halls of Opportunity, a preschool for underserved children in West Palm Beach’s Westgate neighborhood. The students recognize him—he’s been here before—and wave and giggle. Escorted by a teacher, one boy comes to shake his hand and say, “Thank you.” The child has no idea Gilmour is a Canadian entrepreneur who’s founded such companies as Fiji Water and Barrick Gold, has owned a private island—Wakaya—in Fiji, has traveled millions of miles around the globe, and remains actively engaged in business concerns Wakaya Perfection and Zinio. He and his schoolmates know only that Gilmour is the force behind David and Jill Gilmour with Opportunity students

Opportunity’s brand-new facility with fun playgrounds for all ages, an enormous sports field, and so much to learn and do. Since 1939, when it was founded by the women of the Episcopal Church Guild of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center (originally Opportunity Inc.) has provided preschool services to children whose families couldn’t afford it. It’s been a boon to inner-city communities,

—Jill Gilmour

but space has been an issue: The tiny facility can accommodate fewer than 100 children, resulting in a waiting list of more than 500. Enter David and Jill Gilmour. The Palm Beachers have quietly financed nine preschools worldwide, including in Fiji, the Bahamas, San Diego, and Las Vegas. The impetus for putting their resources into early childhood education was a tragic event. In 1983, Gilmour’s only child, Erin, was murdered in Toronto. “When we lost Erin by violence, that was the watershed of my life,” he says. “She was 22 and an extraordinary individual. I wanted to know: What makes killing so prevalent? Every sign led clearly to early education.” Erin was the first to alert her father to the problems stemming from a lack of early learning. On a trip to the Bahamas two weeks before her death, she discovered that in the out islands blind children were denied education. Spurred by Erin’s passion for helping those young victims of neglect, the Gilmours built a school for blind children in Nassau. “I was inspired by our daughter,” says Gilmour, 87. “I wish I could say I had the inspiration without the horror.” Though they’d been funding preschools for years, it never occurred to Gilmour that similar problems lurked near beautiful, manicured Palm Beach. When it was brought to his attention that gangs and crime were rampant in certain areas of Palm Beach County, he decided to go all in on a project that not only would reflect his devotion to early childhood education but would also be a prototype for early learning centers nationwide.

“I fear for the security of West Palm Beach, which already has a major problem with crime and drugs, but also for an increase of crime on the island that can only escalate unless early education can turn the tide,” Gilmour says. The Town of Palm Beach United Way introduced the Gilmours to Opportunity and the nonprofit’s executive director, Ali Eger, who was looking to expand and offer school-readiness training, health and nutrition, social development, and arts programs to more children. As far as matches go, this one was made in heaven.

“This was a little school making a big difference,” Gilmour says. “I had total faith this headmistress could run a preschool three times that size. That’s when we decided to buy three acres across the road and build the ultimate preschool in the country.” The Gilmours made the lead gift—$2 million—in the $8.6 million campaign and enlisted their friends, including Bob and Christine Stiller, who gave an additional $1 million. Gilmour’s best friend of 30 years, Herbert H. Jacobi, who serves on the board

082_GILMOUR_1218.indd 85

of Palm Beach Civic Association, donated the funds to commission British artist Edwina Sandys to create a monumental sculpture, titled Paradise Regained. The piece will be displayed near the entrance and unveiled during the center’s grand opening event on January 31, 2019. “It is a work of abstract art,” says Jacobi. “It shows children together, looking up to, perhaps, a better world.” Before long, the dream took shape: a 24,000-square-foot facility serving 285 children and scores of families. The sign above

the front door reads: Erin H. Gilmour Early Learning Center. It’s one of only two Gilmourfunded preschools to bear Erin’s name. According to Eger, this facility is a game changer. “Early childhood education is our primary focus, but there are more enrichments we wanted to add,” she says. “The bonus of this [new] facility is that we will add family support that really rounds out the picture. If we can strengthen their home environment, our work with the children will be that much more effective.” PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | DECEMBER 2018

“Having just one child in an early learning center like Opportunity elevates the whole family’s esteem,” says Jill Gilmour. “They do not feel mired in their socioeconomic group. A child who is getting an education will be unlikely to be tempted to join a gang or resort to violence, thus reducing the overall crime rate of their area over time. This is exactly what has happened in the area of Vista, California, where we established our first pre-K in the U.S.” The Erin H. Gilmour center features 16 classrooms, each utilizing assessment tools to support high-quality student-teacher interactions. Part of Opportunity’s success is linked to its focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts/creativity, and mathematics), critical thinking, and learning how to learn. Teachers implement the conscious discipline technique to build character, emotional wellness, and good citizenship. The center also offers families access to a resource center, an on-staff social worker, a scholarship fund, an emergency food and clothing pantry, family therapy and education, a full-time nurse, and the county’s first Ben Carson Reading Room in a preschool. In addition, Opportunity will provide after-care for its graduates and students’ siblings. “With this expansion, we can increase services for the children, who come with a lot of other risks, such as food insecurities,” says Eger. “We can expand our family-development program, help parents continue their education, and prepare for job searching. We can get back to our original roots of helping low-income families become self-sufficient.” The Gilmours’ gift and, more importantly, vision allowed for the land purchase, furnishing, security technology, and all supplies and equipment for the new facility, but with an operating budget of $3.5 million a year, an endowment is needed to ensure Opportunity’s success in perpetuity. The Gilmours have responded with another substantial gift, on top of their initial investment, which will be announced at the opening event. “It’s the least I can do for the wonderful life I’ve been able to lead,” says Gilmour. It’s also the best possible tribute to his daughter in that it is more than a passion project honoring a loved one’s memory. It is a powerful solution to a real problem.

86

The Erin H. Gilmour Early Learning Center is a tribute to Gilmour’s late daughter, but it also presents a clear solution to the crime and gang problems plaguing communities.

“The human brain is 85 [to 90] percent formed between six weeks and five years,” he notes. “If a child, at age 5 or 6, has not had early mental training and also lives in a fairly dysfunctional environment, it could lead to involvement with gangs. They take children who have been ignored, start them off as runners, then train them to steal and [commit] other crimes.” Early childhood education has been proven to work. From 1962 to 1968, HighScope Educational Research Foundation examined the lives of 123 children born in poverty and at high-risk of failing in school. The children were divided into two groups: Group A entered a top-quality preschool program based on HighScope’s participatory-learning approach. Group B received no preschool program. In the early 2000s, HighScope interviewed 97 percent of the participants at age 40. The study found that the adults who attended preschool had higher earnings, committed fewer crimes, and were more likely to graduate from school and hold a job. Similarly, the Chicago Child-Parent Center (CPC) followed the progress of 989 children enrolled in 24 preschools in low-income areas with access to extensive resources provided by CPC. The study showed an economic incentive for investing in high-quality childhood intervention. For the 1,000 who enrolled in the CPC program between 1983 and 1986, $26 million was generated. In economic rewards, for every dollar invested in a child, approximately $7 was returned to society. “This is a rethink of David’s legacy,” says Jacobi. “He thought this was a wonderful way to counteract local gangs. This is an alternative to [crime]. It’s an environment that fosters learning and values.” “This could be the bomb that ignites [a solution],” Gilmour says. Even now, well into his eighth decade, the serial entrepreneur and philanthropist can’t stop dreaming big. His next goal is to expand the concept within Palm Beach County and present his prototype to decision makers in Washington, D.C. in order to encourage the government to place more emphasis on early childhood education. “[Erin] would be so involved with us on this,” he says. Jill adds, “This is the best way to remember this exceptional young woman and turn a tragedy into a positive outcome.” «

KAY ISELIN GILMAN HOSTS AN INTIMATE CHRISTMAS PARTY IN HER TROPICAL-HUED HOME By Linda Marx | Photography by Vanessa Rogers

rowing up in Oceanport, New Jersey, Kay Iselin Gilman remembers the thrill of anticipation as she and her brother would descend the staircase on Christmas morning to find bulging stockings hanging on the fire screen and a glittering tree her parents had set up the night before, surrounded by a mountain of presents. “Each year we would wait for Santa to come rolling into our driveway with sirens from the Oceanport fire truck,” she says. “My father would give them a bottle of Four Roses. This was followed by a delicious family turkey dinner with heirloom recipes for lunchtime, and an eggnog party with multiple kinds of cookies in late afternoon for friends stopping by.” Gilman’s mother and grandmother fostered special family memories by hosting relaxed, warm soirees like these with wonderful food and music. Her sports-crazy father, Philip Iselin, adored the giving aspect of Christmas. One year, the siblings were forbidden to enter the attic for several months before Christmas morning because their father had commissioned a secret project. “When we finally got the okay to go upstairs, there was a

Never one to shy away from color, Gilman accented her coral-rich abode with an array of holiday decor, including an ornament wreath from Neiman Marcus and a bevy of festively wrapped gift boxes.

When putting together this charming soiree, Gilman (below) drew inspiration from her childhood and the holiday parties her parents hosted.

fantastic Lionel train set for my brother and a beautifully furnished dollhouse for me,” she says. “We were very fortunate.” Philip, a successful manufacturer of women’s apparel, was president of the Monmouth Park Jockey Club located near their home. In 1961, along with a group of investors, he bought the New York Titans from bankruptcy court, renaming them the New York Jets and serving as president from 1968-76. Gilman, who became a pioneering female sports columnist at the New York Daily News, went on to write Inside the Pressure Cooker: A Season in the Life of the New York Jets, published in 1974. In 1976, after Philip’s death, her mother sold the Jets to Leon Hess, but Gilman still follows the football team. Today, her sorbet-colored Palm Beach Towers home brings the kind of peace warranted after a high-profile career in Manhattan. In addition to writing, she was also a partner and president of Hemming+Gilman, a special events and fundraising firm where she produced once-in-a-lifetime events like the Brooklyn Bridge Centennial Celebration and the reopening of Radio City Music Hall. Such lofty entertaining experience sets the stage (and expectation) for this vibrant hostess, 96

who still feels the same sense of wonder for the holiday season she did as a girl. And, her sophisticated, albeit informal, gatherings take cues from those of her parents. For an intimate Christmastime fête at her waterfront, cabana-esque condominium, she invited a diverse, small group of friends to celebrate with made-from-scratch appetizers, a buffet dinner, and dessert by executive chef Philip Kroesen and sous chef Tim Rigas of the Palm Beach Towers’ Restaurant 44. “I like the holiday spirit of getting together with friends and family in an upbeat and tropical environment,” Gilman says. “A holiday party should be exciting and festive, [and impart] a feeling of fun while celebrating with people you care about.” This results in a guest list that mixes and matches attendees with ranging interests, ages, and backgrounds. Think: a stimulating scene from a modern-day Auntie Mame. Gilman still remembers the joy when her parents entertained the top stars in sports and show business who came to Monmouth. “It was so much fun when celebrities like Alfred Hitchcock, Jane Wyman, Ed Sullivan, Milton Berle, and Phil Silvers would come over to the house after spending time at the track,” she says. “I learned early on that the secret to throwing a good party

is great food, decor, and drinks—keep the liquids flowing!” Together with designer T. Keller Donovan, Gilman (who is divorced with three sons and four grandchildren) ensured her island-inspired holiday palette of lime green, coral, and white created a vivid interior that was aglow with seasonal sparkle. “When the door opens to Kay’s apartment, it’s like holiday fireworks,” says Donovan, who originally designed the ikat-patterned space in 2014 and added Christmas touches—like gift boxes, fresh roses, hydrangeas, and amaryllis, and Gilman’s small antique tree with handmade ornaments enclosed in a glass cloche— for the event. “This is not an interior of a shrinking violet.” A jewel-toned, ornament-adorned wreath from Neiman Marcus welcomed guests at the entryway. The evening’s signature Peach Flamingo Bellini, an exotic concoction of peach nectar and syrup with diced bits of frozen peach in a chilled Champagne flute, floated around the room on trays. Holiday music played

in the background as guests enjoyed passed appetizers of cold togarashi- and sesame-seared bigeye tuna on a wonton crisp with seaweed salad, ginger aioli, and wasabi crumble, and Pecorino and truffle profiterole cheese puffs. Gilman, wearing a Tadashi Shoji gold lace dress, Diane B. gold Italian shoes, and David Webb gold and diamond wing earrings with emerald drops inherited from her mother, made introductions and led guests around the living room. “I adore the pink coral decor and how it works for the holidays,” says Alexandra Patterson, an executive with WS Development, the company behind the revitalization of The Royal Poinciana Plaza. “It personifies Kay and her spirit, which has a bubbly, happy, joyful, feminine side. I call it soft with spunk.” Conversation bounced from world travel plans and politics to Donovan’s exactness of design detail. New friends congregated around the white coffee table topped with a vase of pink and white amaryllis emboldened by the coral decor, hurricanes with red candles, and a portion

Across the room, chef Kroesen described his theme for the celebratory cuisine. “For me, holiday meals with family and friends are something rare and valuable,” he explains. “They should be communal and unique. The family-style buffet with a carving station expresses my vision for blending a little classic with modern twists.” Once his entrees were placed on the serving table around a centerpiece of 98

colorful stacked gifts wrapped by Donovan, guests filled their gold-rimmed Limoges and selected napkins embroidered in a coral pattern by Kim Seybert and antique silver flatware from Bailey Banks & Biddle’s former Philadelphia store. They dined like family around the coffee table, choosing either rack of baby lamb with a mustard crust, chutney of apricots, peaches, plums, and nectarines, and a black truffle demi-glace gravy, or whole poached wild salmon with Persian cucumber scales and micro dill served with a Meyer lemon beurre blanc and a pistachio and Greek yogurt tzatziki. Elevated comfort foods, such as sides of celery root, fontina, and truffle gratin, creamed spinach casserole with a breadcrumb crust, and white and green grilled asparagus with lemon olive oil completed plates. The chef paired his menu with Virginia Philip’s curated wine choices: a 2017 De Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume and a 2012 Joseph Drouhin Côte de Beaune Rouge. Dessert was astonishingly indul-

gent: Nutella cheesecake topped with mango and shaved chocolate. Following a chatty dinner, Donovan surprised sated guests with gift bags filled with pastel Sugarfina sweets. While Gilman is a natural at throwing parties, she felt exceptionally gratified about this holiday soirée after guest Susan Borchardt sang her praises, extolling her personal warmth and charm that makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable. “Kay is the ultimate hostess,” says Borchardt. “She thinks of everything, including her guests.” Whether she’s rooting for the Jets, hosting for United Way, or designing a holiday fête for friends, Gilman does nothing halfway and has a blast in the process. “The party was a bouillabaisse of old and new friends of all ages and interests,” says Gilman, who is currently writing a memoir. “The mix turned into a great holiday party where everyone just relaxed, had fun, and got into the spirit.” «

For David Silva, who attended Palm Beach Day Academy and has family in the area, opening Maven on the former Nick & Johnnie’s site felt like coming home. It also provided a seasonal alternative to his summertime Nantucket restaurants, Galley Beach and Afterhouse Seafood Bistro & Wine Bar. Best described as an American brasserie with French touches, Maven sources its raw materials through local purveyors, with seafood courtesy of North Star, hydroponic produce via Swank Farm, grass-fed beef by Bush Brothers, and organic, freerange eggs from Holman’s Harvest. Chef W. Scott Osif’s approach is mirrored in the popular jumbo lump crab cake, topped with fresh mint and a julienne of tomato and cucumber and served with a Champagne beurre blanc. “Our idea of hospitality is that it’s a gift we’re giving to make people happy,” says Silva. “It’s important that guests know they’re receiving the highest quality ingredients available on the market.” Palm Beach (mavenpalmbeach.com) —Mark Spivak

For its twelfth incarnation, the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival, taking place December 13-16, promises to deliver the same big flavor—along with a few updates. This year, the concluding smorgasbord, the Grand Tasting, is having a change of scenery and will now be held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. But, as always, festival attendees can expect once-in-a-lifetime dining experiences and celebrity chef sightings, including the likes of Daniel Boulud, Robert Irvine, Amanda Freitag, and Anita Lo, a pioneering figure in the restaurant industry. Lo, who was the first female guest chef to cook for a White House state dinner, is also an Iron Chef winner and earned a Michelin star for her NYC restaurant, Annisa, which she recently closed. PBI spoke with Lo about her favorite Palm Beach delicacy, her new tome, and her dream dinner guest. (pbfoodwinefest.com) —Liz Petoniak

PBI: What restaurants do you look forward to eating at while you’re here for the festival? Lo: Having the stone crab every year really makes me happy. We had some great stone crab at PB Catch last year. What inspired your new book, Solo: A Modern Cookbook for a Party of One? A conversation I had with a friend of mine, who started thinking of cookbook names that had my last name in it. Locountry, lo-cal. We just kept going, and he said, “So-Lo” or “A-Lone.” I thought, “Oh my god, I have to write that book.” It could be funny, first of all, because there are a lot of cat lady jokes you could make. But, I thought it could also be helpful because a lot of people are choosing to be alone. Work is taking over a lot of people’s lives. And I think it’s kind of sad

how people aren’t cooking as much. I wanted to present some really easy recipes [to] make at home. Now that Annisa has closed, what’s next for you? I’m not going to own a restaurant. I think I’m going to get various long-term consulting jobs where I can set something up and be in charge of the menu but not be in charge of the day-to-day. If you could host one celebrity at your house for dinner, who would it be? Rachel Maddow. I heard she fishes, and I’m an angler. I also heard she’s into cocktails, and I know she likes to eat.

TASTE SHOPPING

WORLD MARKET

While it’s fun to eat at a restaurant specializing in exotic and unfamiliar cuisine, it can be challenging to reproduce those dishes at home. The Palm Beaches are becoming more multicultural, however, and the selection of ethnic markets is increasing. Best of all, the staff in these stores is usually more than happy to explain ingredients and share recipes. —M.S.

« Planet Ozone, Stuart The first green commercial building in Martin County, Planet Ozone features a large food store along with a separate restaurant and an environmentally friendly gas station. All meats are Halal certified, and there’s a vast range of organic and glutenfree Mediterranean delicacies. If you get hungry while shopping, pop into the Tabuleh Café for fresh-squeezed juices, salads, smoothies, and more substantial dishes such as kabobs or shawarma. (planetozone.com)

« India Bazaar, West Palm Beach The cuisine of the Indian subcontinent is delicate and complex, but this store offers a good introduction to help cooks get started. The condiment section is comprehensive, spanning all-purpose curry mixes and individual spices to make your own. The owners receive high marks for friendliness and helpfulness, too. Don’t forget to pick up some fresh, hot samosas at the register on your way out. (indiabazaarwpb.com)

Boca Oriental Market, Boca Raton Enthusiasts will find everything they need to cook their favorite Korean, Japanese, and Thai dishes in this narrow, crowded storefront.

The refrigerated and frozen sections carry an impressive selection of dumplings, and don’t miss the Japanese and Chinese candy aisle. (561-361-3130)

Oxtails & More, West Palm Beach This Military Trail outpost is ground zero for Caribbean creations, with most items imported fresh from Jamaica. Selections range from meat (goat, smoked mutton, and chitterlings) to fish (escovitch and salt fish) and produce (ackee, callaloo, and sorrel). Shoppers shouldn’t overlook home remedies, either; Benjamin’s Gentian violet is used to treat skin infections, while Benjamin’s Kananga water is best suited for spiritual cleansing. (oxtails.com)

FARM FRESH

The Dairy Mecca There are those who think they know cheese, and then there’s Chris Marshall. Last spring, the Jupiter chef and caterer expanded his Hampton Forks location to establish the area’s most innovative cheese shop, Cheese & Provisions. He carries between 40 and 60 varieties at any given time, but quality definitely dwarfs quantity. “I don’t want to have everything,” says Marshall. “We focus on small-production items you can’t get anywhere else. Our cheeses are farm-direct and shipped in by next-day air. The transportation sometimes costs more than the cheese.” His passionate approach allows him to carry gems such as Tunworth (an English variant of Camembert), Keen’s Farm Cheddar from Neal’s Yard Dairy in London, and Honnalee (a rich cow’s milk cheese similar to French Tomme) from Briar Rose Creamery in Oregon. Marshall has his personal favorites, too. He’s partial to Harbison, a soft-ripened cheese made by Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont, as well as Shropshire Blue from Neal’s Yard. “It’s super-creamy and always hand-ladled. Even people who hate blue cheese love it.” All selections are purchased in full wheels and hand-cut for customers. Apart from the seriousness of the cheese, the atmosphere is casual: Diners may order to go or sit at a long, communal table and enjoy a cheese board, sandwich, or small plates. The wine selection is limited but curated. “When you think about it, these cheeses are like wine,” says Marshall. “They reflect the place where they’re grown.” (hamptonforks.com) —M.S.

Each major Champagne house has its unique style and personality, and the nonvintage Brut is usually the best introduction (not to mention the bottle with the most accessible price tag). But there are times when only the best will do, and at those moments we reach for the tête de cuvée. If you’re feeling festive this holiday season, sample some of these tête de cuvée Champagnes currently on the market. Dom Pérignon: This was the first prestige Champagne to appear, with the 1921 vintage released in 1936. A varying blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it is the ultimate expression of the house of Moët et Chandon and a universal symbol of excellence. The style is ripe, forward, and accessible. Dom Pérignon 2006 ($165) has a rich nose with whiffs of lemon, lime, and melon. The wine is even more satisfying in the mouth, exhibiting a full-bodied array of stone fruit and citrus. The texture here is lush and soft; this is a crowd-pleaser rather than a bottle for wine geeks. It finishes long, with a touch of yeast and sweetness. Formerly known as the Oenothèque series, the Plenitude wines are special re-releases from the Moët cellars. The Dom Pérignon Plenitude Brut 2000 ($325) has a complex nose with glimmers of ginger and candied pear mixed with toasty vanilla. It’s complex in the mouth as well, exhibiting a Sherry-like overlay on a background of freshness. Amazingly youthful at 17, it ends with intertwining notes of ripe pear and stone fruit. La Grande Dame: The luxury cuvée of Veuve Clicquot is named for Barbe-Nicole Ponsardin, the widow at the helm of the Champagne house from 1805 to 1866. The nose of the 2006 ($145) 128 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

gives up hints of Meyer Lemon and mint with coaxing. In the mouth, the flavors sneak up on you: Citrus, preserved lemon, and candied zest linger for nearly a full minute, intensifying and building. La Grande Dame Rosé 2006 ($285) has a similar nose to the 2008 Rosé but with more intensity and a faint essence of black cherry. It’s quite earthy on entry as well, followed by a reduction of sweet red berries. There’s a fascinating contrast between the richness of the fruit and the earthiness of the wine. Krug: Krug Grande Cuvée gained fame as a “multi-vintage,” a blend of 10 or 12 older reserve wines in different batches and proportions. The 164th edition ($170) is robust and full-bodied; this

blend announces its presence and grabs you. By the mid-palate, the power has been replaced by a range of apple, melon, pear, stone fruit, and citrus. The finish is long and mouthwatering. On the nose, Krug Brut Rosé ($295) mixes pleasant aromas of red fruits with fresh herbs and mint. In the mouth, the style remains controversial, with a ripeness that is almost excessive, combined with a sensory overload of plump rhubarb, red currant, and raspberry. The texture is racy, exotic, and distinctive, and the wine cries out for rack of lamb or saddle of venison. This is a bottle you’re not likely to forget, and one that proves the old adage, “There is Champagne, and then there is Krug.” «

HOME By Liza Grant Smith

DESIGN

Dining is meant to be an experience, but this modern penthouse in Boca Raton’s One Thousand Ocean proves it doesn’t have to be a singular one. Studio K Architects and general contractor Alonso & Associates teamed up to create five distinct dining spaces, each with its own vibe and allure. The breakfast nook and outdoor deck provide the apropos environs for stylish, intimate gatherings, whereas the kitchen counter bar offers a perch to nosh while remaining engaged in the culinary action. The visual showstoppers are the two more formal dining areas. Located adjacent to the glass facade that welcomes in beach views, the indoor dining room is equipped with a custom wine closet featuring detailing evocative of an ocean wave rolling across the ceiling. Embracing the unpredictability of South Florida weather, the exterior dining room is a glass box with gorgeous views and yearround functionality. (skafl.com; alonsoandassociates.com)

LIGHTING the Way Shine bright with these designer tips for establishing radiant indoor and outdoor spaces

Within the field of lighting design, Nathan Orsman of Orsman Design Inc. is considered an artist—sculpting with light to create intrigue in both interiors and exteriors. His canvases include luxe residences in New York, Connecticut, California, St. Maarten, and our own South Florida. Here, Orsman shares insight into his design process and tips for achieving excellence in illumination. (orsmandesign.com)

MICHAEL STAVARIDIS

A home’s layout is a key factor in indoor lighting, while safety helps dictate illumination outdoors.

takes to cohesively light an outdoor environment. Everything from the walkways to the grill to the pool area all need to be clearly and safely lit, while also not forgetting that they need to be attractive fixtures. What new technologies are you loving? All filament bulbs are LED, so we’ve really embraced that cleaner, more efficient light. Also, we can do submersible LED pool lights, which are pretty cool since they give a totally different impression to the pool [and] encompass the perimeter. What’s the most effective way to use spotlights in Florida backyards? Don’t shine them toward the house—shine them away from wherever you are sitting and be sure to highlight the vertical of the property: hedges, trees, sculptures, etc. Also, if you want to light the lawn, do it symmetrically so that it’s visually pleasing. What’s your favorite unique lighting touch? Using more fixtures with less wattage. It creates a warmer, more balanced atmosphere, as opposed to just having a couple of super bright lanterns scattered about. MICHAEL STAVARIDIS

PBI: What can lighting design do for an interior space? Orsman: Lighting is the first component that differentiates residential, hospitality, and commercial spaces. Once we identify our space with particular fixtures and brightness, we then work to minutely understand the area we are illuminating: Is it task-driven, such as a kitchen or gallery? Is it leisuredriven, such as a living or music room? Or, is it intimate, such as a bedroom or spa? This determines whether we use high hats, dome lighting, undercabinet lighting, recessed, or any of the many other options we have on hand. When we add dimmers to the equation—which I always do—we then have an exponentially higher [degree] of control. What element of a home’s interior design most influences the lighting you choose? First is the layout to see how light will flow from room to room; we never want there to be an imbalance. Secondly, is the home modern, traditional, or a mix? We can create products for every single style, and that really is half the fun of this profession. Designing a statement chandelier is always such a fascinating project because no two are ever alike or duplicated, and they can be tailored to so many different aesthetics. What’s the trick to establishing a vibe conducive to entertaining? The key to successful entertaining is to make your guests comfortable. We start with warm, flattering lighting, such as dimmed lamps and an accent center fixture like an artistic pendant. My favorite lighting option for entertaining would be to have many different sources of low light (candles and fireplaces included), so that the room comes in on itself

[and] feels intimate and inviting, as though you are truly reassuring your guests that they are welcome to enjoy themselves in your home. What are the goals of outdoor lighting? Practicality and safety. Often times, people entertain at night, and we need to make sure all outdoor staircases, steps, and angled terrains are safely lit for ease and safety of entertaining. Secondly, people want to see each other. We avoid down-lighting as that casts unflattering shadows, so we use a variety of in-ground fixtures and sconces where appropriate. What mistake do people make when lighting their outdoor space? Not having enough lighting. Sounds simple, but many people really do not realize just how much it

POP QUIZ Rather than drowning the decor in color, designer Jacki Mallick added splashes of rich tones to this West Palm Beach room to keep it fresh and modern. “The client wanted this enclosed patio lounging space to function independently from the surrounding indoor/outdoor area,” says Mallick. “To meet that goal, we created a white box with pops of jewel tones in blue, green, and purple, including custom throw pillows in a Trina Turk fabric. The result is a serene yet mod vibe.” Jacki Mallick Designs, West Palm Beach (jackimallickdesigns.com)

WARM-UP

The Kick OFF

161_BALANCEOPEN2_1218.indd 161

For some, the thought of kickboxing may conjure intimidating images from UFC Fight Night. However, fitness kickboxing is an approachable workout for all ages that boasts big benefits, all without the risk of taking a hit. “It’s a crazy stress reliever,” says Allan Prince, who co-owns IntensityX3 Fitness & Kickboxing with his wife, Cecilia. “Kicking and punching taps into our primal instincts and allows people to disconnect from their outside lives. It’s easy to go on auto pilot on the treadmill

or bike. But because we’re calling out the combinations, you have to be focused.” His studio’s two locations in Boca Raton offer a variety of classes, including HIIT Box and Hot Kickboxing. Beginners start by learning the basics in Kickboxing 101, and other sessions split workouts into half kickboxing and half resistance training. “Kickboxing is a great cardiovascular workout, and the rotating movement is great for the core,” says Prince. “It really makes people feel empowered.” (intensityx3.com) PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | DECEMBER 2018

Nasal fractures can certainly happen at any time of the year. However, here in coastal Florida they tend to be more frequent during the summer time. Paddle boarding and surfing as well as other summer activities may result in trauma to the nasal pyramid. Not all traumas need to be addressed but what are the basics you should know in case of a nasal fracture? • What happens: an impact trauma of cartilage and bone. The shape of the nose is altered and often this becomes obvious only once the initial swelling has subsided. • What is the timing of treatment: An immediate repair can be performed at the ER where possible skin breakdown can be addressed. You have 14 days after the initial trauma to have those “fixed”. • What if the fracture does not get addressed or the initial intervention fails to achieve the previous shape of the nose? A revision rhinoplasty can be scheduled 6 months after the trauma. • Is there a dressing to be worn after? There is a plastic cast and tape that will be removed 7 days after the procedure.

Flower-embellished, all-natural soap makes for a fun DIY project that can also double as a personalized gift. Local holistic wellness coach Jules Aron shares her formula for homemade soap in Fresh & Pure: Organically Crafted Beauty Balms & Cleansers ($19.95, Countryman Press), which starts with a simple base for adding essential oils and dried botanicals and herbs. Create singular scents or try combinations such as lavender and eucalyptus, or rose and jasmine. “These pretty jeweled soaps are a simple way to customize your bathing experience,” says Aron. “If you’ve never made soap before, start here.” (julesaron.com) Botanical Soaps 16 oz. glycerin soap base 10-20 drops essential oils of your choice 1⁄2 cup assorted dried botanicals Choose your molds and prepare them by greasing with oil. Grate the glycerin soap and add it to a double boiler or heat-safe bowl in a pan of simmering water. Allow the soap to fully melt. Remove from heat. Add essential oils and continue to stir to prevent bubbles from forming. Arrange chosen herbs and flowers in the bottom of molds and pour over with the melted glycerin soap base. Allow to cool and set for a few hours before taking the soap out of the molds. For maximum freshness, use within six months.

As cannabidiol, or CBD, takes the health care industry by storm, aestheticians and beauty brands are finding that this nonpsychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant delivers major perks for skin. Touted as an antioxidant more powerful than vitamins C and E, CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can ameliorate issues with dry skin, acne, and aging when applied topically. In West Palm Beach, Prado Spa & Salon has embraced CBD, incorporating it into pedicures, manicures, scalp treatments, facials, and massages. In the hands of the right masseuse, the CBD massage oil provides near immediate pain relief, melting tight muscles and soothing achy joints with a cooling, tingly touch. The ingredient also shines in the Prado Salon’s facial, which begins by cleansing and exfoliating with Wilma Schumann products. Then, an aesthetician employs a Lucas sprayer to vaporize CBD oil for a chilly facial mist and more CBD oil is applied to dry or acne-prone areas. A red wine collagen mask and oxygenating serum, massaged into the skin with a rose quartz roller, wraps up the treatment. “CBD is great for fighting acne and inflammation, but it’s also universally beneficial because it helps the skin maintain homeostasis, or regular function,” says Prado Spa & Salon aesthetician Athena Blair. The difference is noticeable: Skin puffiness dissolves, resulting in a glow that persists for weeks. It’s not a high but rather a sensation so blissful that after trying one of these spiked treatments, it may be difficult to go back to a world before CBD. (pradospa.com)

WEALTH

THE TAX MAN

Familiarize yourself with these tax reform changes before filing for 2018 By Judy Martel Beginning this year, taxpayers preparing their 2018 returns can take advantage of the new law, formally known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. David Hasen, professor of law with expertise in taxation at University of Florida Levin College of Law, offers insight into some of the most significant tax code revisions for individuals. First, some basics: The standard deduction has nearly doubled, to $24,000 for married filing jointly and $12,000 for single filers, meaning fewer people will itemize, explains Hasen. But these higher amounts are somewhat offset by the fact that the personal exemption (which was a little more than $4,000 per person and could be taken regardless of whether a taxpayer itemizes) is no longer available. Income tax brackets have been lowered, with the top tax tier of 39.6 percent dropping to 37 percent. It applies to taxable income in excess of $500,000 for single filers and $600,000 for married filing jointly. The lowest bracket is 10 percent. Now, let’s dive into some additional highlights of the tax reform.

PROPERTY Interest on home acquisition debt—which includes the purchase, refinance, or substantial improvement of a primary or secondary property—was deductible up to $1 million under the old rules, says Hasen. Going forward, the limit is $750,000 for married filing jointly and $375,000 for single filers. Note that while the deduction can be applied to a primary or secondary residence, it isn’t a separate amount for each but rather a combined total if applied to both properties. When most of the new tax reform laws sunset on January 1, 2026, the amount reverts to $1 million, unless Congress acts before then. Interest on home equity loans, which was deductible up to $100,000, is no longer available, unless used to substantially improve the home. State and local income and property tax can only be deducted up to $10,000 a year for married filing jointly, says Hasen. That makes the prospect of homeownership a lot less attractive, unless you live

reduction in taxes on qualified business income for a sole proprietorship, limited liability corporation, partnership, or S-corporation. “There are lots of limitations so you need to consult your tax professional,” says Hasen. But, if a taxpayer qualifies, it’s pretty significant. The deduction is only available for business income, not income from wages. Business deductions and health insurance premium deductions that were previously taken outside the standard deduction are still in place, Hasen adds.

in Florida, he adds. Because Florida has no state income tax, the full $10,000 deduction can be applied to property tax. BUSINESS INCOME A new provision in the tax code provides a boost to a so-called “passthrough business.” Known as Section 199 Cap A, it allows a 20-percent

ESTATE TAX Under the former tax law, the federal estate tax exemption was $5 million per individual, indexed for inflation. For 2017, that meant each individual could exclude $5.49 million of his or her gross estate from death taxes. Under the new tax law, that amount for 2018 increases to $11.18 million, adjusted for inflation. “Almost no one will be subject to this tax,” Hasen notes. The gift tax is tied to the estate tax and hasn’t really been tinkered with. For 2018, taxpayers are allowed to give $15,000 to each recipient without paying gift tax. Any amount over that is deducted from the estate tax exclusion. But although the rules haven’t changed, Hasen says, the higher estate tax exclusion means more people can gift higher amounts without the concern of exceeding the limit. «

Q&A

All About ALAN

Actor Alan Cumming is an undefinable force of nature. On stage, he’s best known for his Tony-winning portrayal of the emcee from Cabaret. On screen, he’s taken his turn as a Bond villain, played a political operative on The Good Wife, and danced like no one was watching in Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. Did we mention he’s also a best-selling memoirist and lauded humanitarian? Originally from Scotland, Cumming reflects upon his experience immigrating to America in his new show, Legal Immigrant, which arrives at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach December 9. PBI caught up with Cumming to discuss acting, Legal Immigrant, and his favorite things about his homeland. (kravis.org)

CHRISTOPHER BOUDEWYNS

CUMMING SHARES THE MOST SURREAL MOMENTS FROM HIS CAREER AT PALMBEACHILLUS TRATED.COM/ALANCUMMING

173_AGENDA_1218.indd 173

PBI: You’ve portrayed a wide range of characters. How do you go about selecting your roles? Cumming: I choose roles for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they are things I am burning to do, other times they are because I really want to work with someone or go somewhere, and sometimes because I need to earn money! But like everything else in my life, I tend to choose roles by following my gut—my instinct, if you will. Also, the roles that speak to me are not necessarily the big showy ones; they are the ones that just have something—even a line or a moment—that I feel makes them worth inhabiting, and part of the story I feel I’d like to tell. What can audiences expect from Legal Immigrant? A smorgasbord of genders, topics, and emotions. I really do love the fact that the form of cabaret allows you to do pretty much anything; sing a song from any period, talk about any subject, but also, as I do in this show, have one through line as an umbrella that binds it all together. What do you miss most about Scotland when you’re away? I miss the sense of humor, the collective understanding, and, I know this sounds weird, but I miss the rain. Not the constant, pouring, nonstop rain, but the light mist we have. Well, it’s more rainy than a mist actually, but not so rainy to be actual rain. We call it smirr. I think that is why everyone has good skin—we are constantly hydrated.

HOT SEAT Curvaceous legs, sumptuous cushioning, lush materials, and all that hand-stitching—there’s something seriously sexy about chairs. The Society of the Four Arts looks beyond this humble furniture item’s utilitarian beginnings to its most divine interpretations in “The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Design.” On display December 8 through January 20, this special exhibition features 43 exquisite chairs crafted between the mid-1800s until today. A thrill for decor enthusiasts, this collection runs the gamut of design and boasts a variety of famous makers, including Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles and Ray Eames. Some selections, like Thomas Ustick Walter’s House of Representatives Chamber Arm Chair, are tactile pieces of American history, while others, such as Frank Gehry’s High Stool, resemble works of art rather than places of rest. Visitors to “The Art of Seating” can learn more with docent-led Gallery Talks scheduled throughout the show’s run. Palm Beach (fourarts.org)

SUNDAY SOUNDS The Palm Beach Symphony kicks off its 2018-19 Masterworks Concert Series on December 2 with “Symphonic Talesâ€? at the Kravis Center. Conductor RamĂłn Tebar will welcome the Master Chorale of South Florida for Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor, sung in Russian. The rest of the program will feature magnificent compositions from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Highlights include Tchaikovsky’s Suite from The Sleeping Beauty, Ginastera’s Four Dances from Estancia, and Strauss’ Overture to Die Fledermaus. If you’re hungry for more Die Fledermaus after that sampling, return to the Kravis Center in March when Palm Beach Opera will stage the full production. A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, “Symphonic Talesâ€? will begin at 3 p.m. and run for an hour and a half. Tickets start at $35. West Palm Beach (palmbeachsymphony.org)

The best gifts are ones you never knew you needed. That’s exactly the thinking behind my picks this month—unique items in every price range to gift those who have everything. Take, for instance, the wallet-friendly Lucite Baublebar hoops, which are sure to keep your bestie looking trendy. Or, for the friend whose glam squad is on vacay this month, a glitter hairdryer and accompanying Drybar set that will make her feel like a star. If you really want to up the ante, personalized pillows, such as those by Bombardier Designs, add a thoughtful touch. The Affinity bracelet from local jewelry designer Idalia Baudo is sold as a pair but wrapped individually, with the intention of keeping one and gifting the other. I’m buying one for myself and the l FOR MORE FASHIONABLE other for my daughter. After BUYS, WATCH THE “EMILY’S PICKS” all, sharing is caring—even SEGMENT ON CBS12.COM. when it comes to gift giving.
