well and good

Even for those who have long prioritized healthy living, the last year has invited a deeper dive into the more complex folds of well-being. Is it enough to go for a daily run, maintain a sensible diet, and make the occasional attempt to meditate? Or is a lifestyle reset warranted? As so many of us rethink what it means to live well and with purpose, it helps to be inspired by the people who have figured it out. One of those is the indefatigable lawyer Bill Bone, who rises before dawn to begin his considerable fitness routine, which prepares him for intense workdays and a full calendar of cultural and charitable activities. He goes nonstop into the evening, when he often hosts friends at his home for multicourse meals and Symposium-style…

art arising

Art aficionados should head to the new District Flats in the Warehouse District to see West Palm Beach’s first public kinetic artwork, Bercade Dudali, and nearby Fatin Dudali. French-American artist and West Palm resident Béju, best known for his playful Dudali characters, says these pieces signify Floridian flora and fauna, the site’s industrial past, and his own mother and siblings. The sculptures came together after months of planning, trips to Miami for 900-pound impact-glass panels, many studio hours, and an arduous installation process. Made of copper plumbing pipes, they are constructed to be site-specific and relatable to the people who share space with them. On-site, the works are introduced by a poem written by the artist. Through his art, Béju aims to illustrate “the power of feigned simplicity,” capturing echoes of body…

The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach is leading efforts to revamp Phipps Ocean Park. The $140,000 master plan (which goes to the Palm Beach town council this month for approval) will turn the 18-acre site into a richly terrained destination complete with hillocks, hollows, and hiking trails. The tennis courts, 1886 Little Red Schoolhouse, and beach access will remain, but the redesigned park introduces outdoor event spaces—a great lawn and a gathering area—plus an environment restored to its indigenous glory, enhanced by educational signage throughout. Renowned landscape architect Raymond Jungles is helming the landscaping and will employ 100 percent native plants. Here, Jungles fills us in on what’s to come.

The Florida iteration of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House has returned for a fourth year, with top designers from 18 firms nationwide descending on West Palm’s SoSo neighborhood to transform a Mediterranean-style waterfront home into the epitome of domestic style. While the number of open designer slots depends on the house size, there are typically 18-25 spaces available each year. Designers apply or are invited to participate, and participation is not granted by vote but by selection, with the committee looking to balance a mix of established and new designers, styles, and geography. “We’ve witnessed the Show House launch design careers, expand a firm’s business to new markets, and draw national media attention to young, talented designers who are just getting started,” says Nazira Handal, Show House director. Following a preview…
