By this point, Miami’s Art Basel has become known all over as one of the most prominent art festivals in the world. But if you’re not in Miami, it’s tempting to think of the fair as only the main exhibit with its famous art pieces and household name artists.

Those of us from Miami know different.

While interior designers and decorators love myself love to point people to the million dollar plus artwork at Art Basel proper (and sometimes buy them for themselves), the real treasures are often found at the satellite shows.

It’s by combing the galleries and exhibits off the beaten track that you can find the work that truly reflects your personality.

Sure, Art Basel is over for this year. That said, there’s still a valuable lesson here. When it comes to interior design, following the road less taken is more often than not the path to ending up with a home that makes people’s mouths drop.
