Inside a Chic Miami Beach Hideaway


Over the break, I was lucky enough to get the chance to snap some photos of a project that was recently completed by Miami-based designer Marcel H. Ruiz. The 3 bedroom condo was renovated to accommodate a fun-loving family who use the property to escape cold Canadian winters.


The elevator opens up into a small foyer with an accent wall painted a deep blue-grey. Ceramic flower sculptures are hung on the wall and are reflected back in a beautiful mirrored cabinet by Jalan Jalan.


The foyer opens to a spacious family room bathed in fresh white, and pea green with the slightest touch of sherbet. Light warm wood pieces, including the Isa chandelier by Oly Studio and a custom media unit, mix with iron and mirrored accent tables. Stunning fabrics by Brunschwig and plush soft furnishings from Lee Upholstery create a welcoming casual vibe that invite you ro sink right in after a long day at the beach.


A fabulous feature wall created using painted horizontal stripes in different widths is set off beautifully by a modern white dining table, drum pendant and sea shell prints.


The kitchen is fresh and clean with white cabinetry with simple mouldings and a pale blue backpainted glass backsplash.


The girls' room has a stunning pale green upholstered headboard with contrast welting of the same blue damask fabric used on the adjacent slipper chair. A subtle tone on tone damask wallpaper is used as a feature wall for the rest of the calming white bedroom.


The boy's bedroom has a blue grasscloth feature wall with vertical seahorse prints flanking a seagrass headboard from Pottery Barn. Rich wood furniture from Mitchell Gold + Bob William's Mao Now collection plays off the beautiful bordered white and blue linens and fresh white walls.


The shared bathroom features beautiful carrera slab countertops and a mosaic-inlaid floor.


The master bedroom is almost complete, but the obvious star is the white canopy bed with elegant pale blue and sand-coloured linens by Barbara Barry. (Oversized ceramic lamps are due to arrive any day now!)


The stunning master bath and vanity are luxurious and spa-like with tons of carerra slab, beautiful fixtures and a sea-shell encrusted mirror.
