Behind the Design
To celebrate the launch of her new AERIN for Williams Sonoma
collection, Aerin Lauder opens up her Palm Beach home, where generations
of women in her family have made their stylish marks.
“This home really influenced my Williams Sonoma collection,” says Aerin. Built in 1924
by noted architect Marion Sims Wyeth (who also designed Doris Duke's Shangri-La in
Honolulu), Aerin’s family home is perfectly suited to its breezy, oceanfront Palm Beach,
Florida location. High windows shine natural light on walls in pale pink, turquoise and
lavender while tropical plants and Spanish designs help erase the line between
indoors and out. “It is truly my paradise,” says Aerin.
