Designers will divulge their philosophies about style and taste through insider tips and accessible advice, covering everything from how to best begin a project to how to select just the right finishing touch. Many have designed residential spaces for celebrities, dignitaries, politicians, and titans of business, yet each approaches his or her process with a method that is unique to their talent. Several are award-winners, having collected some of their industry’s most impressive titles. But all are artists, drawing on personal and professional experience to consistently deliver environments that perfectly capture their clients’ hopes and wishes.

The featured designers are all based in Florida, from Miami and South Beach to Central Florida and the Panhandle, but many possess histories and cultures that crisscross the globe. Whether you are seeking someone to complete your next major project or searching for a spark of creativity for your own home, Some Like It HOT has plenty of inspiration as you immerse yourself in the world of beautiful interior design.
