David Bromstad Pulled Inspo From A Classic Museum For A Vibrant Remodel

David Bromstad first made waves on the interior design scene after winning the HGTV show "Design Star." After taking the grand prize, he went on to guest judge the next season and mentor designers in later ones. He has since appeared on numerous HGTV shows and is now well-regarded as a designer that knows how to truly capture a particular mood for a room.

For one of his projects on his show "Color Splash," he created a glamorous look for a living room and dining room by gleaning inspiration from Miami's famous Vizcaya Museum. The museum was once a private residence owned by businessman and socialite James Deering but was eventually turned over to the city of Miami, per the museum's website. The landmark features a beautiful Italian Renaissance design and rich history. So what did Bromstad do to transform a standard home into a museum-inspired masterpiece? We'll fill you in on the details.

Bright and modern living

When David redecorated homeowners Alejandro and Olivia's home, he knew it wasn't only about what was brought in but also working with how things were arranged. By simply relocating tables and couches, the space was instantly opened up and allowed for a more spacious layout. He was also mindful of what the homeowners wanted. While some celebrity designers tend to strike out on their own, leaving the room recipients often startled by the final result, David listened and drew touches from Vizcaya that he knew the family would love. This included Alejandro's desire for gold accents, which David incorporated through the dining room curtains.

Other touches inspired by the Vizcaya Museum? Recessed ceilings, large ivory columns, and a mini modern art gallery to enjoy. He incorporated everyday items like the television into the museum theme by framing it with a wooden art gallery-inspired frame, as seen in the HGTV clip.

He used rich blue-green hues for the furniture paired with plenty of wood and white. Small touches like vases full of flowers, iridescent curtains, and silver pieces throughout really tie the look altogether.

When transforming a home's interior to rival a famous museum, David accomplished what he set out to do. With modern furniture pieces, classic touches, and a clean and bright color scheme, he designed a space that is both lovely to look at and comfortable to live in.
