Homes are like brides: You should always have something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue on display. Those items give your space character, and after all, we can't all afford to fill our abodes with $39K Steinway pianos and $65K silverware sets à la Ruth Madoff. Each year, the Miami Spring Home Design and Remodeling Show rolls into town and presents the latest and best of the residential decorating, remodeling, and home improvement products from countries across the globe.
Whether you splurge on a crushed-velvet chaise or drop a few dollars on a square of Spanish tile, this year you can balance your shopping (or window shopping) with some education. The weekend is chock full of seminars. Today, for example, you can sit in on "Top Ten Energy-Saving Tips to Save You Money!" at 3 and 7 p.m., and the rest of the convention shows you the goods through this Monday.
