The Miami Beach Chamber selected David Patlak to receive a prestigious veteran’s award for a remarkable service career that earned him over 17 distinguished Military Awards.
As one of nine military families selected from Miami-Dade and Broward counties, the Miami Beach Chamber’s award earned Dave a “New Room for the New Year” courtesy of Design Experts, Giselle Loor & Brett Sugerman of b+g design, one of South Florida’s most highly regarded Interior Design firms as part of the Military Room Makeover Program sponsored by the Dania Beach Design District and Luxe Interiors & Design Magazine. Dave chose to have his bedroom redone, but b+g design faced challenges in the remodeling process due to a lack of storage in a small space. b & g’s design solution was to construct a well compartmentalized closet system and to create custom made bedroom furnishings specially designed for the smaller room. A custom padded, sculpted headboard was created to go with the attractive platform bed and base that held built in drawers to provide additional storage. Decorative accents from the Giselle Loor accessory line and a graphic wall cover from Romo were added to liven the room. The b+g team collaborated with their trades (Grafton Furniture, Innerspace, Giovanni Art, Surya, Romo, Ylighting, Myers Construction, K & P Wallcovering) to donate their time, effort, custom furnishings and materials to transform Dave’s room into one that combines style and function that he’ll enjoy for years to come. Giselle Loor stated, “b+g is honored to use our talents and skills to make life nicer for the Miami Beach Chamber’s Veteran. Dave has been a pleasure to deal with and for us it’s been a work of “heart” that we hope he’ll enjoy.”Dave and his wife are overjoyed with their new room. Dave Patlak said, “The room feels like a sanctuary. This gift is helping us to get rid of clutter and to have a fresh start.
We are incredibly thankful to Miami Beach Chamber CEO, Jerry Libbin, the Miami Beach Chamber, Craig Urbine, The Dania Beach Design District and especially to b+g design for their generosity. They created the perfect Miami Beach Resort Retreat for us and even included storage space. We never dreamed what they did could be possible!”
