Pinecrest BeautyTropical Living Room, Miami
The very high ceilings of this living room create a focal point as you enter the long foyer. The fabric on the curtains, a semi transparent linen, permits the natural light to seep through the entire space. A Floridian environment was created by using soft aqua blues throughout. The furniture is Christopher Guy modern sofas and the glass tables adding an airy feel. The silver and crystal leaf motif chandeliers finish the composition. Our Aim was to bring the outside landscape of beautiful tropical greens and orchids indoors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Favorite project: An art curator’s home in Pinecrest, Florida. They designed all of the interiors, but the living room with its high ceiling stole their hearts. They covered the walls in robin’s egg blue paint, installed floor-to-ceiling curtains and added hand-carved mahogany sofas. “The crystal chandeliers make everything sparkle,” Cristina says. Design dilemmas: They have a similar style but don’t always agree. In those moments, they put all the options on the table, try not to argue and put the client’s needs ahead of their own preferences, Cristina says.Tell us about your daughter’s … Design signature: Gorgeous lighting, especially chandeliers and lamps.
