Interior Design Florida Style

On Tuesday I was invited to the Miromar Design Center in Estero, FL for a presentation on drapery hardware by Paris Texas, the Finial company and Duralee.   It was extremely informative and the discussion highlighted the endless customization to drapery rods and finial design as well as the pro’s to motorized drapery.  While I was of course fascinated with all I learned in this meeting I will not bore you with information on how to caculate the weight of your drapes! Instead this blog will give you a quick picture tour of the Design Center and a few comment from an interior designer, that would be Me!

Here are the copper doors that great you as you enter the design center.  They are beautiful!

One of the first showrooms I went in was Henredon.  They have 3 stores on the second floor filled with exquisite furniture.

Although armoires are becoming a less needed piece of furniture in ones home  (people can fit their flat screens in them) I love the height they can bring into a space.  The mirrored front on this one is stunning!

The Modern showroom of Ligne Roset was also very cool.  I would describe a lot of the furniture as retro-modern.  Most of the upholstered pieces were a throw backs to the 70’s while their case goods are streamlined modern.  I love the mix of the two and was very impressed.

Casa Italia also has a store in the design center.  They carry a wide variety of well known modern furniture designers- here are some pictures of a few of my favorite pieces.

Lots of chair styles- some lacking in comfort but not in style.


Walker Zanger displayed these mosaic tiles on the ceiling.

These pictures are from Richlin International’s showroom- some very modern plumbing fixtures


As you can see I had a lot of of fun exploring the Design Center!

I decided to include a few pictures of my trip to Robb & Stucky on this post as well- They have a very impressive store as well with lots of great design ideas.  Below are a few displays that impressed me.

I love the navy blue- one of the dominate colors I’am using in my new home.
