Estero, FL (June 17, 2016) – Rob Bowen, owner and principal interior designer of St. Petersburg-based Rob Bowen Design Group, has been named Miromar Design Center’s June Designer of Distinction. Specializing in high-end residential, commercial and hospitality design, Bowen is renowned for his ability to transform blank settings into intimate spaces that express each client’s unique vision and style.

“In addition to offering a beautiful selection of home furnishings and accessories, Miromar Design Center provides a multitude of services which help streamline the design process,” said Bowen. “Having so many resources all within one location has greatly contributed to the success of many of our projects.”

Having been passionate about design since the age of six, Bowen possesses many years of experience creating stunning interiors in a diverse range of styles. A glimpse into his eclectic portfolio reveals influences from countries all over the world, including Thailand and Argentina, although he always designs with his client in mind.

“My inspiration comes from a variety of personal experiences with travel, nature, music, architecture and even textiles,” said Bowen. “But ultimately, each project is driven by the personality of the client. I take the time to truly understand their needs and desires so that their house or office feels like home.”

Bowen’s clients often describe him as gifted, intuitive, artistic, sophisticated, collaborative, positive and generous. “Each client I work with also becomes a friend, and each project becomes a manifestation of their individual point of view,” he added.
