Miami-based interior design and architecture firm Errez Design recently reached out to me to share its latest project, a 1910 cottage in Coconut Grove, FL, which belongs to a contemporary art collector. The client has an extensive collection of artwork, including pieces by Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Banksy, Swoon, and David Bowie, as well as rare antique Biedermeier furniture, antique textiles, and crystal chandeliers. Designer Ruben Gutierrez says, "The project was more about curating a collection than interior design. The bones of this turn-of-the-century cottage were very charming, but not designed to house such a contemporary art collection or a modern family. However, we made it work by letting each room tell a story that related to its function."
Come along and take the tour, and hear more from Guiterrez about this wonderful home!
