Vizcaya's bachelor owner, James Deering of the International Harvester fortune, and his companion collaborator, the incredibly talented Paul Chalfin, created this fantastic estate, then on the outskirts of Miami, and started spending winters there in 1916. Architect F. Burrall Hoffman, Jr., and landscape designer Diego Suarez helped realize the magnificent and exotic tropical estate that once empassed 180 acres. The walls of this bathroom are panelled with three types of marble with silver decorations. The ceiling is tented with linen embroidered with Pompeiian motifs. The most memorable feature of the lavishly handsome room, however, is the shaving stand in the form of an antique brazier, seen in the first photo. This house is open to the public and is not to be missed if you ever travel to the area; actually, it is even worth a trip as a destination.
