HGTV Design Star David Bromstad's Brings Us Home to His Colorful Miami Pad
The only thing hotter than Miami's South Beach is resident and HGTV personality, David Bromstad. After winning the inaugural season of HGTV's hit show, Design Star, the interior designer's career and colorful designs skyrocketed. Ever wonder how the talented designer lives? Here's your chance -- check out his funky-glam pad.
If you've ever been to Miami, you'll know that this Floridian city is all about color, glam kitsch and Deco architecture. See how the designer has brought that fun home -- a major collection of blown glass and cheeky objects like a golden owl. We also love how Bromstad incorporated some local flavor with a life size flamingo sculpture.
Anchoring the space is a sleek and very masculine kitchen but Bromstad lightened the feel with the chalkboard wall. We think this is a great touch to the center of a home -- and fun for cocktail parties -- you'll get to see your friend's artistic skills!
Starting with a foundation of black and white, the Design Star created a bold room by accenting with primary colors. Mod yellow chairs, red vases and a vintage marquee sign conclude that all signs point to a bold "yes!" Tip: You can still add drama to a black and white room by playing with textures -- a classical white chair gets a funky spin with its shiny finish, and furry shearling rugs add a touch of cozy to the contemporary space.
Obviously, Bromstad has a keen sense of humor and doesn't take design too seriously -- he has fun with it! We love that he's modernized the eighteenth-century portrait with a mustache.
Setting the tone for a bold contemporary bedroom, Bromstad anchored the room with near-neon green leaf wallpaper while keeping the furniture white hot.
