Mod in Miami
Alison Brungart, an up-and-coming designer, took on the challenge of transforming a tiny beachside crash pad into a modern, inviting home. With a space the size of some walk-in closets, it was no easy task! By removing walls and adding custom-designed, built-in furniture for her storage needs, Brungart created a sleek and versatile home in this 400-square-foot area. Space this tiny requires creative storage solutions and that's where her design talents came in handy.

All of her furniture is made with the same wood tones, so no one piece sticks out. This consistency gives the home a "hotel chic" style. Painting all the furniture in a room the same color is another way to achieve a unified look.
