Design Beyond Interiors™

Founded by husband and wife team John-Paul & Janie Micek, Studio 818 is a full-service Interior Architecture & Design Firm located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. With over seven-years experience developing more than 40 of our own Designer Spec Homes the firm is uniquely equipped to step beyond conventional interior design when collaborating with our clients. 

Studio 818’s extensive budget development, property optimization and construction administration experience equips the firm to handle the hundreds of moving parts required to create and bring your dream design into reality. Our team makes the most challenging design projects turn-key for our clients by managing everything from ground-up construction to the last pillow on the couch.

What We Specialize In

Studio 818 is known for amazing whole-house renovations where we transform the entire property inside and out. Our team is expert at transforming funky floor plans and dated kitchen/living areas into sleek modern spaces.

Our clients are drawn to the firm’s clean contemporary design style infused with Mid-century Modern, Scandinavian or Modern Farmhouse influences based on the client’s vision. Open-concept floor plans, bright spaces, and the seamless flow of interior & exterior spaces are staples of Studio 818 designs.

How We Work

We work with professionals, business owners and any clients with limited time who want a beautiful livable design delivered to turn-key completion with no hassles, no worry, and no excuses. 

Our systems have been tested and refined through our development of over $20-million in Spec Homes. These processes allow Studio 818 to provide clients Full-Service Design on a fixed-investment basis instead of hourly-billing as commonly practiced by Interior Design firms.

  • I highly recommend Janie and Restore 818 - we couldn't have made our dream home without her. Communication is very important to me when working with someone and Janie made sure she was in touch about upcoming timelines, decisions that had to be made and any troubleshooting.

  • Studio 818 you are the best! Words can not express how happy I am with my Restore 818 home. My life is forever changed and my 2124 Dreamlodge is truly my dream home!! Janie and Studio 818 make dreams come true. 
    — Joe DelMonte
  • As soon as I walked into this house by Restore 818 designed by Janie Micek, I knew immediately this was the house. I probably looked at 50 odd homes before I decided on this one, many being more expensive. Warm, intelligent, timeless design blending modern and old features with beautiful colors and open spaces. It was an exact fit. 
    — Mark McGongle
  • My 15-foot kitchen island puts my last renovated kitchen in New York to shame. I've retired now and absolutely love cooking and entertaining in this fabulous home. JP and Janie are a great find in the search for well done design.
    — Jeff Rosenthal
  • Janie has the best creative eye for any space & style. All our friends always ask how we came up with design and they love it. We use Studio 818 for every home and commercial project and recommend her to all our friends.
