Tropical living at its most chic
The community of Windsor is located on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River in Vero Beach, Florida. Planned by the renowned New Urbanists Andrés Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, this sublimely landscaped, pedestrian-friendly village by the sea boasts houses by A-list architects and top interior designers, among them John Stefanidis, Steven Gambrel, and Alessandra Branca. The exteriors, Anglo-Caribbean in style, feature steeply pitched roofs, open eaves, cantilevered balconies, and palm-shaded courtyards and pools. The interiors, all executed with exquisite craftsmanship and appointed with fine finishes, range in style from classical and traditional to sleekly contemporary.
Beachside presents a wide array of the houses, indoors and out. Organized room by room, it highlights the myriad ways of creating elegant yet casual seaside living, from bougainvillea-framed entrances to airy, breezy open-plan public rooms to cozy studies and bedrooms that open onto balconies with sweeping ocean views.
