Writer Joyce Maynard once said, A good home must be made and not bought. Whatever. We all know that if we had a cool million dollars, we would buy the perfect beach condo and decorate it with the most expensive designer furniture possible. Beginning today, you can get ideas for your dream home or your studio apartment at Casa Décor, the European producer of interior design shows. The groups first show house in the United States is the Miami Womans Club, featuring some 60 well-designed interior and exterior rooms. More than 26,000 square feet of perfectly arranged space spans five floors and includes a working restaurant and a champagne bar. Lofts, libraries, gardens, swank hotel rooms -- it's all here. Casa Décor began bringing cutting-edge design to Madrid fourteen years ago. Now its Miamis turn. Casa Décor is open to the public through December 17 (closed Thanksgiving) from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. and will host events and private viewings in the evenings. Admission is $22.50; a special admission package is $55. Proceeds help restore the Womans Club. Call 305-373-3700, or visit www.casadecor-usa.com.
