Before Layda Morales and Derrick Payne got their own place, they lived with her mother and grandmother in her 10 x 10-foot childhood bedroom. By the time they move into their new 2,000-square-foot Miami home, the cavernous living and dining rooms feel like a sterile warehouse compared with the shoebox they were in before. Inspired by the pair's artistic taste, designer Franzella Guido plans to give the rectangular living/dining area a cool art-gallery vibe.
