Y ou walk into your room and look to your left
to see clothes piled up on your favorite chair.
Turning to your right, a stack of papers rivaling
that of a university file room stands before you.
Hey, it’s understandable. Now, before you start
to freak out and resort to calling Clean House or Trading
Spaces, calm down and phone Claudia Miyar. Clutter and
chaos have met their match in the former editor and stylist at
O at Home, Real Simple and Martha Stewart Living.
With the emergence of the “Interior Organizer” as an
accessible option over the standard interior designer, Miyar
has returned to Brickell to style spaces and help people make
sense of them through organizing, redecorating and flat-out
redesigning by tackling a room that has gotten out of control
or reworking a space that’s looking stale.
“I usually work with what people already have and freshen
it up a bit, often moving artwork around to sort of reinterpret
what they already have in new ways,” she says. “Sometimes
it’s as easy as getting a new rug and a few accent pillows.”
What’s best, she typically does a complete overhaul in one
day. “I work with people who trust my taste and experience,”
she says. “I’m sort of a mind reader. Sometimes I have to
extrapolate a bit from what people tell me and make an
intangible ideal come together.”
So why does she do what she does? “We spend so much
time at work and at home that our moods are affected by
our spaces,” she explains. “I’m just happy that I get to do
something that I love and that I’m good at. Whether it’s a
beautifully styled room for a photoshoot or it’s a home or
office for a client, I’m happy knowing I left the space looking
better than it was when I walked in.”
