About Alexander Calzadilla

Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments. When Alex was first put in charge of the three departments, they ranked near the bottom. By the time he left Costa after seven years, Alex had transformed the floundering departments into unqualified successes, posting record earnings, sales and profitability. In 2008 Alex was named the Costa Employee of the Year. Alex now puts his formidable prowess as a businessman into his newest venture, Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, LLC, serving as Managing Partner.

Expanding on my Black, White, Brown, Beige return to being stand alone colors in design

 The return of Black, White, Brown, and Beige as 
stand alone colors without the impact colors of
yellow, red, orange, teal, lime, and purple


Minimal design using mostly black, white, and earth tones.. Usually boring to me, I find these amazing, perfect design choices, and perfect implementation of placement of key objects. I tip my hat to the designer

I have been looking for articles on the earth toned browns, blacks, whites since I have noticed a lot more being done with these two colors. And believe me from someone that prefers color over everythig I have to admit some of these designs have impressed me. They are absolutely stuning and actually take the best from both colors and bring them together also using a lot of very slick shinny surfaces unlike the blacks and white designs where everything was matte. Maybe that was the issue I had all along. They were so dreary and sad. The ones I am seeing now are glossy finishes, high use of glass, and polished concrete or other materials counter top. These kitchens, bathrooms, and even living rooms and bedrooms, no longer look dark and scary but bright and inviting. Here are some more examples of living rooms done in these two previously thought of by me as simply not acceptable. 

The following pictures are all completely impact color free, or any color besides the black, white, browns, and beige.  I use to hate these dreary colors and until now I would have never believed in doing entire rooms using them without even an accent color rug to being life into those same rooms. But after looking at he following pictures, which I find amazing I now know these colors can make it fine on their own..  In these cases the need for bright impact colors are simply not needed (ok someone shoot me)
