Bok Tower Gardens, A National Historic Landmark
During our visit we first made our way to the Pinewood Estate for it’s holiday home tour. Pinewood Estate is a 20 room Mediterranean mansion and is housed on 8 acres of the garden property. The mansion was built from 1930-1932 and has been restored to it’s 1930 appearance. During the holidays, Pinewood Estate has many of it’s rooms decorate by different sponsored designers and the halls and stairways are decorated by local vounteers who have handcrafted many of the decorations. This years Holiday Home Tour theme was “Celebrating Traditions”. Room designers selected decor ranging from old, authentic ornaments to historic themes about the homes original owners, to various holiday traditions celebrated by their own families. The rooms of in this 1930’s mansion were elegant and full of holiday traditions. To make things interesting, at the end of the tour we were asked to make which room was our favorite and place into a voting bin. The winning designed would be provided a special dinner for 8 in the mansions dining room.
