esigner Hillary Littlejohn Scurtis took on this Miami-area project looking for a challenge, but what she didn’t expect was a blossoming friendship and a professional partner.

“It’s very unusual for a client to have a strong eye for design and also be receptive to their designer’s vision,” says Scurtis, who eventually went on to hire her client, Maria Corina Sosa.

With a passion for interiors and knowing exactly the aesthetic she wanted, Sosa assisted the designer in revamping her family’s Brickell Key apartment.

Hoping to update the floor plan by incorporating an ocean view from each room, the homeowner entrusted Scurtis with the monumental task of reconfiguring the space for maximum functionality. The designer opened up the kitchen to the dining room and incorporated some of her client’s belongings into the renovation.

“I wanted to keep some antiques that had sentimental value and a story,” says Sosa, whose taste, over time, skewed a bit more contemporary. The mix of pieces allows the interiors to feel modern, yet grounded.

The completed space also features art hung in a gradient fashion, with black pieces on the east side of the home and white works in the west, while those in the middle dwell in gray tones.
