When photographer Andrea Posadas told us she was going to Miami, it took everything we had to not jump on the next flight and join her – especially once we heard she’d be staying at the Surfcomber. Located in the heart of South Beach, the historic Art Deco building features a palm-lined pool and is just steps away from the ocean. And while the location is a large part of its charm (and its fame), what we’re really obsessed with is the colorful design. Natural wood sits alongside neon accents while bold artwork lines the walls. The Surfcomber takes “pattern-mixing” to a whole new level with graphic textiles in every color of the rainbow, yet it somehow still feels minimal and modern. And with plenty of metallic accents, Surfcomber shows off the vibrant energy that Miami is known for.

Lucky for us, Andrea brought along her camera allowing us to see (and swoon over) every last detail. And for those of us who can’t jump on a plane to Florida any time soon, she is sharing the products to bring the look to your own home. Of course, perhaps this tour will inspire your next trip. Just in case, here is Andrea’s list of must-visit Miami hotspots:

Wynwood Walls. There is street art and graffiti for about 7 blocks and amazing little shops and art galleries all down NW 2nd Avenue

-Ocean Avenue has all the art deco buildings. You can walk it for about 2 miles and it’s just filled with vintage buildings. At night, the street is filled with colored lights and live music and dancing. 

Wolfsonian, the FIU design museum. Their exhibitions are constantly rotating but if you love art and design, this place is a must!

Vizcaya Gardens. Beautiful European/Vogue-esque gardens surrounding the 34 room mansion. It is almost like you have time travelled starting in Miami 1960’s Deco to Spain 1910’s.

-Finally, any hotel you walk into on Ocean or Collins Ave, you cannot go wrong with being stunned by the eclectic interiors. SLS and Delano are a must walk thru – beyond dreamy!
