Interior design began as a means for inventive birds to garnish their roosts with "Bless this nest" picture frames and thus distinguish them from unkempt twig piles. Adorn your feathery abode with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two adult tickets (ages 12+) to the Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show held at the Miami Beach Convention Center on March 25–28 (up to a $20 value). Each ticket is good for one day, and a Groupon can be purchased for each day. Tickets for children younger than age 11 are $1; admission for children in strollers is free.
The twice-annual Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show fetes dwellers and decorators with hundreds of displays, myriad home accouterments, and expert tips for fittingly accessorized domiciles. Take in a weekend seminar from Andrew Downward, HGTV's Divine Design's painting guru, as he imparts multihued wall knowledge to fledgling living-space embellishers. Send rumbling tummies to cooking demonstrations while swaying to live piano tunes, or head to the wine bar to purchase sips of grown-up grape juice while nibbling on delicious dairy delights and contemplating your next project.
Remodeling specialists will eagerly dole out advice and free tutorials on a bungalow's most frequented gathering places, while the celebrity designer showcase will spotlight gracefully stylish showrooms, ideal dwellings for South Florida stars. Deal-catchers can take advantage of special pricing from exhibitors while gleaning inspiration for their living room or how to maintain aesthetic balance in their bedroom when their husbands insist on displaying a cardboard cutout of the cast of Law & Order.
Though the Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Every year, the Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show corrals home-design retailers, manufacturers, and professionals together for three days of domestic delight. Homeowners tote their personal decorating, landscaping, and remodeling ideas and dilemmas into the convention center and, after immersing themselves in the assembled knowledge of vendors, efficiency experts, and star designers, leave with the fresh ideas and innovative products they need to tuck-point the tree house or plan a new addition.
