smitten travels: wynwood art district – miami

wynwood art district // smitten studioWhen I lived in Miami, this neck of the woods was the old manufacturing district with abandoned warehouses on every corner. Now the big buildings have turned into giant canvases featuring artist’s work from all over the world. Rupe and I spent a day wandering around the streets soaking up all the creativity….

We had a tastey meal of small plates at Wynwood Kitchen (the himachi ceviche & mexican corn was SO good), and picked up a few unique items for the house at Frangipani (my favorite shop there) and Elemental.
