Drool-Worthy Designs

When Ikea -- the Wal-Mart of furniture stores -- landed in South Florida, the hurricane of cheap couches in vibrant colors gave you a bad case of vertigo, and the oodles of white-lacquered furnishings for the buildin’ had you in hex key hell. Don’t fret -- the cure has arrived. And no, it’s not a bonfire. It’s the Miami Spring Home Design & Remodeling Show.

This yearly event features more than 1,000 displays of the latest in decorating tips, furniture and accessories, landscaping ideas, and more home-related products and services than you’ll be able to handle. Today you’ll be left alone to wander the Miami Beach Convention Center, taking in the displays of rooms you could only dream of creating, but this weekend you can also check into one of the many seminars. On Saturday and Sunday, we promise you’ll enjoy Food Network culinairess Ingrid Hoffman’s lesson on lending Latin flair to American faves, and Steve Gonzalez will be on hand to teach you how to redo your abode without breaking your pockets. The show is open today from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, and $1 for kids under 11. Get more information and a $2 discount by logging onto
