Last week, I had the opportunity to chat with HGTV Urban Oasis interior designer Lindsay Pumpa. The topic of our discussion: design trends in Miami and inspirations for interiors of this year’s apartment. What is the quintessential Miami design style? The answer is more complex than just one color palette, collection of fabrics or furniture style.
“Miami is a place where it’s no holds barred. We go all out when it comes to design,” says Lindsay. “If we go contemporary, it’s going to be uber modern. If we do French rococo, we throw it in your face. There is nothing half done or tamed down here. We embrace all design influences.” You may be wondering from where this “go hard or go home” design
approach stems. Lindsay points to the hospitality industry, where making a big splash is essential to business success. “When you come to Miami Beach you are expecting a nonstop show,” she says. “Everything is bigger and bolder. And people who live here embrace that lifestyle, which resonates throughout their home decor.”
