For the competition, FLOR will have more than 400 sample tiles available for consumers to work with and design their own unique entry. The 11 finalists will win an 8 x 10 version of their rug design (retail value $900) – YAY!

DKOR 2015 INTERIOR DESIGN PRESS
We are beyond ecstatic to announce our recent editorial feature in the national interiors + Design Magazine, LUXE, the Miami edition.
This year’s April edition features the interior design project, Detailed Minimalism and is beautifully summarized by the article’s opening summary : “Form and function work in tandem when pops of color and clean-lined furniture float in a family home that is surprisingly detailed and modern.”
The article starts: “For a young family of six that splits their time between Florida and Brazil, establishing a sense of personal space was a driving factor when designing their new house in Miami. After purchasing a sprawling Mediterranean style structure in a sought-after suburban neighborhood, the owners gutted it to make the home more in line with their family-focused lifestyle and modern aesthetic. To achieve this, the wife called on interior design firm DKOR Interiors after seeing her firm’s work in a friend’s home. “Our challenge,” says Ronderos, “was balancing ‘minimalism’ with ‘homey’ so it would be comfortable for the kids. It may not be apparent at first but this is a truly lived-in family home.”
We would like to extend a huge thank you to construction company, Newman Brothers Construction for all of their hard work and dedication in working with us to complete this beautiful home along with all of the vendors who support us on a daily basis. We made sure to mention as many as we could!

Interior Design Goes Green
In celebration of Earth Day, we’re dedicating today’s blog post to our favorite interior design projects that feature, you guessed it – GREEN!
Besides the obvious reasons of green being such a beautiful accent to use as a pop of color through accessories, plants and flowers, it is also usually an important factor for us to consider in the interior design of our projects. A lot of our clients are very environmentally conscious and request that materials are sourced organically and all cleaning products are recommended as friendly to the environment.
Take a look below at our favorite green project photos – HAPPY EARTH DAY!

DKOR Interiors Project Update: Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Penthouse Photos Just Released
“A Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Penthouse” was started over a year ago and is a very special project. This home underwent a stunning transformation from a traditional interior to a transitional and contemporary penthouse in the sky. The interior design concept stems around old world elements breaking through new world components. Our clients came to us with a beautiful and extensive collection of Pre-Colombian artifacts that were to be incorporated as the focus of the interior design thought process. Our goal was to lighten the space and add freshness by incorporating design elements of simplistic lines, architectural details and reflections. A subtle emphasis on the principal of connection was the main concept. You see this in the wood vs. white carpentry, solid vs. void, extruding pieces vs. recessed, texture vs. flat and light vs. dark. We made sure to showcase the cultural significance of each old-world piece and give a sense of home to the space without losing sight of the contemporary design.
Take a look at the project photos below – we hope you love them as much as we do!
