The Elle Decor Showhouse at Paramount Bay.

While in Miami, I was lucky enough to be invited to a luncheon hosted by Phillip Jeffries (my go-to for wallpaper!) and Elle Decor. High above Miami, we ate mini sandwiches and drank champagne. And of course, I took a lot of pictures, because, if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be me, now would I?

I tried to condense the pictures as best as I could, but I decided to include all the extra shots in a gallery after the jump. But for now, I’ll give you a little intro to each room and a few good shots.

 The entry way to the elevators by Wade Allyn Hallcock

Living room by Lars Bolander, this photo is misleading because its not showing you this:

THE VIEW!!!! What WHAT?!?!

Brunch. I ate 100 of those sandwiches.

Hallway off the living room. The art in this show house was INSANE. I LOVED IT. Loved it all. After all, it was Art Basel, wasn’t it?

A moment of collected accessories in the living room. THINK, why don’t you!

Dining Room by Debora Wecselman. This photo is a bit misleading like the other, because you don’t see the spectacular views that would be where I am standing taking the shot.

Eclectic seating area in the kitchen designed by Wade Allyn Hallcock.

Also in the kitchen.

And now for my FAVORITE ROOM, the lounge and office designed by Tamzin Greenhill:

The colors. The wallpaper, the vibe, the art.

The view!!!

In the office portion of the room, she used the same Phillip Jeffries wallpaper in a different color way!

Ceramic Sculpture by Reinaldo Sanguino. I absolutely ADORE it.

The yellow and red, and yet not at all babyish or overly primary. The yellow art. I LOVE. I will remake this room one day.


Ok, enough… now on to a very pretty guest bedroom: Juan Carlos Arcila-Duque

And now the Master Bedroom by Larry Laslo.

Larry Laslo What did I tell you about the view?

Hall in master.

This art! WOW.

Open Bathroom by Larry Laslo (The toilet had its own enclosure, you can see it in the gallery… love the soaking tub!) Media Room by Lynda Murray. Fab art as well, and I think I need to buy an Alexandra von  Furstenberg neon bowl.

A few artful moments:

I done know who made this painting of Living Room designer Lars Bolander, but isn’t it fab?

So sadly, half the space of this penthouse was outdoors. Like, indoor outdoor living at its best. And I couldn’t take photos of that, because thats where the party was! But Hopefully, you can go visit!

  3. Great photos, thanks!
    I LOVE that study space too – the woodgrain wallpaper in grey and contrast red is a bold yet well executed design move.
    The doors in the first two images are amazing. Love the scale, texture and patina.
    The art and views throughout are pretty spectacular!

  4. Whoa. Sweet jeezus the art…and all.

      • reinaldo sanguino says:

        • Nicole Cohen says:

          Lol. I didnt have a tour guide with me, or any info! I just had to go with it! Ill correct the terminology in the actual post and give you credit!


  1. […] was inspired by the ceramic sculptures I saw at the Elle Decor Showhouse in Miami by Reinaldo Sanguino. Obviously, I went in a little bit of a different direction […]
