“A great designer doesn’t convince—a great designer seduces.” – Fanny Haim
Our most current title, Some Like It HOT: Inspiring Spaces by Florida’s Hottest Designers, is now available in bookstores and online! Florida is buzzing about this book—from Key West to the Panhandle—and we couldn’t be more excited about releasing this title! Within its pages, Some Like It HOT offers a peek into the minds of 30 acclaimed Florida interior designers as they discuss their inspiration sources and what truly makes a room.
The process in creating Some Like It HOT has been akin to curating a gallery. Each talent has been carefully selected to exhibit their work within the pages of this permanent collection. The contributing designers range from global sensations such as Fanny Haim, Sam Robin, Juan Carlos Arcila-Duque, Jennifer Garrigues, and Todd Davis & Rob Brown to creative souls like Robert Rionda, Sharron Lannan, and Hillary Littlejohn Scurtis. Some Like It HOT includes exceptional designers Amy Herman, Amy Kelly, Anil Kakar, Brianna Michelle, David L. Smith, Deborah Wecselman, Debra Butler, Eve Glass Beres, Jonathan Parks, Juan Poggi, Judith Liegeois, Kurt Dannwolf & Lachmee Chin, Laura Martzell, Leili Fatemi, Margarita & Cristina Courtney, Pamela Iannacio, Phil Kean, Robert Zemnickis, Sandra Diaz-Velasco, Sarah Zohar, Susan Lovelace and Whitney Bloom. With each internationally recognized designer who fills the pages, their reach is expanded and deepened. It is awe-inspiring to see such diversity and talent in one compilation, and even more amazing to realize their work and philosophies will exist to spark creativity for years to come.
The book’s photographs are exquisite. More than 220 vibrant color images capture completed rooms and show a range of décor styles, from fresh takes on traditional to modern to “uniquely Florida.” The editorial is eloquent, presenting personal anecdotes, complex philosophies, and expert opinions in an approachable manner that appeals to readers of varying levels of interest. Words of wisdom leap off the pages to boldly anchor each chapter.
Readers will especially enjoy reading about the unexpected sources of inspiration while marveling at the polished final designs. Art, classical architecture, music, travel, food, pop culture, fashion—the list of inspirations for these designers goes on and on. There is something for everyone in this book—a rug, a piece of artwork, a color palette, an idea—that can be used within any home.
You can purchase your copy on Amazon or in stores and online at Barnes & Noble. Some Like It HOT is a visual masterpiece and an example of, not only Florida’s hottest designers, but some of the hottest designers around the world.
