On the heels of St. Augustine’s 450th anniversary and in honor of our Show’s theme, “Viva Espana”, Juli and I are excited to take you through the antiques, architecture, and overall style of “La Florida.”

In our lecture, “Florida Architecture and Style: From Ponce de Leon to Lilly Pulitzer,” designer extraordinaire Juli Catlin and I will take you on an exciting ride from early 16th century swamps to mid-century metropolises. We will, as usual, weave in a history lesson with design tips. As we give a nod to “Viva Espana,” you will learn about Florida’s Spanish beginning, as well the rich revival period of the 1920s.

We’ll cover the Spanish, the French, the English, the Southerners, the Americans, and everybody in between.

We’ll particularly enjoy talking about our very own historic architecture in Riverside, Avondale, San Marco and San Jose and the eclectic styles that make up “Old Florida” in Jacksonville.
