The Institute


At Perla Lichi Institute, we don’t just teach interior design. We encourage each student to access and nurture their own natural sense of flair and creativity. We also teach the technical and practical skills necessary to translate those design ideas into reality. Perla Lichi is a master designer and a major force in the international design community.  She founded her own interior design firm in 1990 and today thrives in high-end residential interior design work, commercial design work, and model merchandising. This is a Basic Survey Course that covers many of the important aspects in the field of Interior Design.

No words can adequately describe Perla’s talent. She is by far the best in the industry and her work speaks for itself. Perla designed my living room 15 years ago. When she presented me with the design, it literally took my breath away. The beauty of what she had designed was unparalleled and the quality is unsurpassed. Somehow Perla can determine exactly what her client will love. Here I am 15 years later and still gushing every time I enter my living room. It’s a feel good room and I sit in there to relax and de-stress. Thank you, Perla. Furthermore, Perla’s friendly and warm personality makes her easy to work with.

MARILYN – January 2018

Perla and her team pay great attention to detail. They are passionate and professional with their work. Perla is a patient and accommodating person. We commissioned them for our entire home. They have respected our timeline in doing the work. The pictures do not do justice to their work. It is even more beautiful than it appears in the photos. They make your dreams come true!

Their attention to detail, great ideas, and team approach makes them one of the best Interior Design firms in Florida. Perla keeps pushing the boundaries of interior design. I highly recommend Perla Lichi Design.

KEVIN & BERNIE WIGGINS – December 2017

I was referred by a patient to hire Perla Lichi for my new medical spa (Slim Health & Wellness) in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Perla was extremely easy and fun to work with. She understood the look I wanted and brought it to life! The compliments I receive when patients walk into the clinic are endless! My lobby area is a conversation starter with all the beautiful, unique pieces Perla has chosen. She is very reasonably priced and will work within your budget. She is so funny, patient, humble and kind. Seriously, 5 stars aren’t enough!
