I have been a huge fan of David Bromstad ever since he appeared on Season 1 of HGTV Design Star. I love David’s natural talent for design and how he creates beautiful, original artwork for the homeowners whose spaces he transforms. Earlier this month David showcased his artistic talent at Art Basel Miami, one of the world’s largest art shows.

HGTV and HGTV Magazine co-sponsored David’s exhibition, Body, Money, Death, which was held at the Z Ocean Hotel in South Beach, where he transformed the hotel’s lobby into “The Bromstad” for three days.

David brought his signature style with colorful chandeliers and custom furnishings that he created in his South Florida studio. His art was then displayed throughout the hotel lounge and common areas.

In his own words, ”The inspiration for the paintings and furniture pieces in this exhibition are the three things that we worry about most in life – our body, money and death. The imagery here reflects on my own personal struggle with body and money issues, as well as mortality, throughout my life.”

Unique images of hunting targets, grenades and even fast food were presented, all in eye-catching pop art-style. Although the subjects were serious, David’s sense of humor and whimsy were also present and shined through each piece.

The evening was definitely a success with so many from the Miami art community present as well as some very special friends from HGTV – fellow design stars Meg Caswell and Emily Henderson.

    My name is Alice…I am visiting South Palm Beach for 2 months away from the cold of New Hampshire. I was hoping to visit Miami and some of your recommended interior design stores that you shop at for the remarkable room creations you do. I do part time decorating in New Hampshire but I did my son's home in Boca Raton in a modern design. He did not want the New England saltbox design from which he grew up…so, I impressed him with Mom's ability to go more modern. I love to learn while visiting here and would love to know some special shops that are favorites for you. I did see the list that was available of shops listed by HGTV…ex. West Elm, Crate and Barrel etc…..Thank you so much David for making our world so much more beautiful…Always Alice

    David,

    I have watched your shows on TV for awhile now and love the styles that you choose for the rooms/homes that you design/decorate. How do you choose the properties for the show? I live in NW Tampa and just bought a home, which I am finding difficult to furnish and decorate. It would be of great pleasure to have some input from you and of great value. Is this a possibility? I also love the artwork that you do for each segment as each are so befitting of the style.

    Thanks. Sandi
