Built in 1980, this classic Florida home gained fame when it was regularly featured in the Miami Vice television series. When it came to providing
an update, interior designers Todd Davis and Robert Brown of
Brown Davis Interiors, Inc. sought
to celebrate the home’s strong existing style but make it more timeless and
substantial. The duo gutted and redesigned the interiors, improving the floor

interior decoration reflects the current owners’ color palette and young
