The Painterly Pied A Terre!

This 1,000-square-foot pied-à-terre, located near downtown Miami, had been in the homeowner’s family for decades. As a young girl, she and her family would visit from Puerto Rico and stay in the apartment during their trips to Florida. Now she owns the residence with her husband, and although they live in another part of town with their children, they work close by. Because of its proximity to their workplaces, the apartment seemed like the perfect place to spend weekends in the city or the occasional weeknight when a planned social occasion made staying downtown more convenient than driving home.  The couple also wanted a spot that their three young children would  grow to love and use more as they got older.
