“One of the homeowners had a job where the family had to move to a new country every two years,” principal designer Ivonne Ronderos says. “It was hard for them to make friends because everyone knew they’d be leaving soon. They were ready to find their permanent home and put down roots near Miami.”
When thinking about their new journey as a family, Ronderos was inspired by a “fireflower,” which is how she describes a handheld sparkler or a large, flower-shaped firework in the sky. This inspiration inspired sparkle, shimmer, interesting shadows and strong repeating lines.
