New Project & Update.

This week I've been working in the remodeling of 'El Bisel', a 45 years old glass and framing store located in the famous 'Calle 8' in Miami. I'm doing small changes to update the tired look of the store. As always the two main elements are paint and lighting and we are almost done with that phase, I choose a dark chocolate for the walls to give them deepness and I painted an off white block in the opposite wall as a focal point where accessories are going to be displayed over dark brown bracket less shelves. I have to mention that we are doing this while the store is still operating and it has to be done in a week, so we have to work 'fast and furious' and without mistakes if possible. To display the frames samples I have designed 30"x60" boards covered in off white carpet that are going to be hang in the back wall surrounding by white gauze curtains. The work table and counter are going to be painted in black. I'll be posting more progress pictures around the weekend.

Kim Myles @ Fort Lauderdale Home Show

With Kim Myles of HGTV's 'Myles of Style'

The show was ok, very few design stuff a lot of construction products and services offered and only 2 designers showcased. I walk the Broward Convention Center up and down and in my personal opinion this were the most interesting things in the show....



In my opinion the best booth, and the owner Jackie Liriano the nicest person...
They also carry the Tommy Bahamas fabric collection and a big selection of trimmings,

Good quality low price patio furniture, check out later this week I'll be having a coupon code for my followers to upgrade to sunbrella fabric for free when you buy any product.

It was about time that they start imitating our loved Carrie's 'Cocoon Chair'


Pretty Closet Doors...

Back and Book


Hi everybody, I know it's been a long time since my last post and I apologize for that. Personal matters kept me from doing it, I hope you can all understand. But I'm back hoping to be able to keep posting like I did before.

Remember when back in March I posted about a photo shoot?? Well, at that time I couldn't give any information away but now I can....I'm very honored to announce that my work it's been published in the book "Perfect Porches: Designing Welcoming Spaces for Outdoor Living by Paula Wallace, founder and president of SCAD. I always admired Mrs. Wallace and I'm flattered by the fact that she picked my work for her book. Thank you so much Paula and a big thank you too to all the people involved in the process...
