After shows like Fixer Upper and Flipping Out we have Designing Miami. A recent release on Netflix (21 September 2022), it is a show about a young Latino power couple Eilyn and Ray Jimenez juggling their work and personal lives. They are competitors and a married couple who run competing interior design firms in Miami, Florida. Eilyn, who opts for a more minimal approach, is the founder of Sire Design, a team fronted by all Latina women based in Miami. Karina Perlaza, who we are going to discuss in the rest of the writing, is the lead interior designer of this firm. Here’s what we know about her.

Other than her boss, Karina also impressed her viewers with her no-nonsense attitude at work.
Karina has been with Sire Design for over three years, since she joined one day in July 2019.
Excited about her Netflix debut, she was, lately, seen hyping the show on her social media writing “Can’t wait for everyone to be a part of our team through the small screen!! 🤍”.

While still doing her master’s Karina Perlaza interned at Behar Font + Partners, P.A., and the Interior Image Group. This was in 2017 and all along she was also volunteering at Box of Joy.
