What’s In…

Natural Textiles… Wool, cotton, linen, even alpaca provide a naturally beautiful way to decorate that are easy to maintain and are breathable… a real bonus for South Florida living.


Biophilia… Taking the natural elements one step further, biophilia, or emphasis on the relationship between humans and nature, uses natural, organic materials such as wood, stone and plant life to blend the beauty of the outdoors with our inside spaces.


Rich Jewel Tones with an Edge… Bold colors and patterns are making a comeback. When set against neutral backgrounds and modern architectural details, these striking elements create interest and drama.

What’s Out…

Leather… Although classic, leather is being left behind in favor of more sustainable options. But don’t worry, if you love the look of leather, there are lots of options for sustainable vinyl alternatives that look and feel like leather.


Living Rooms Built Around the Television… Though home entertainment is here to stay, rooms are getting an updated look by focusing on fostering conversation and connection rather than tuning into the TV.


Industrial Materials… The cold, hard look of industrial materials offers little in the way of comfort and easy living. Forgoing rooms that look like office buildings or hotel suites and instead create comfortable spaces add character and color to any home.

For Raymond Goirigolzarri, real estate is more than just a business, it is an inspiration. “Building a business that helps people achieve their dreams is so satisfying and rewarding,” says Raymond. “To many families, including my own, real estate promotes positive growth and human development. Whether they are seeking to find the home where they will raise a family, a vacation property in which to make special memories or make positive investments that will raise their quality of life, real estate is much more than just a transaction to many people and I am proud to play a part in that for my clients.”
