Designer Marc Corbin created a formal space in informal Miami. He saw great potential in this downsized, 850-square-foot apartment with a beautiful view. With black and white furniture and a few tricks with paint, he achieved instant small-space glamour.

Windows and glass doors bring a lot of light into this brightly colored apartment. Marc used a strong wall color to contrast with the black and white furniture and accessories. He painted the floors and ceilings white to reflect the natural light from the windows. He used black paint to create the look of molding on the walls for a formal touch. Painter's tape and a laser level make painting stripes easy.
