Our Miami Beach Bungalow

2nd March, 2017

Recently we redid our New York City home base, and after posting that story it only felt fair to follow up with some shots of the Miami Beach bungalow where we spend the other half of our time.

It’s a sweet 1930s-era 2 bedroom, with original parquet wood floors and charmingly articulated archways between rooms. Just blocks from the beach, it’s the perfect getaway from city life, and a dreamy mobile office for our consulting company, KIZMET, and the curatorial work we do for Faena Bazaar.

What I love most about Miami Beach is the art deco architecture and the pastel colors that dominate the city. In decorating our space, we embraced these references completely, filling our home with art, inspiration, and loads of unabashed saturation.

Our Miami Beach chapter has been a happy one. We are moving out of this space at the end of the month but I have loved every minute of living here!
