By Benjamin Liong Setiawan
Paolo Schellino, founder of the Light of Creativity art workshop, performance and exhibition space, breaks down the secrets to his stylish Miami life.
Ideal Day In Miami
I start with a hearty breakfast at News Café on Ocean Drive with my family, followed by a round of tennis at Flamingo Park with my wife and friends. Afterward, a lunch at The Standard Spa for its beautiful bay view. Then maybe a round of golf at the Miami Beach Golf Club—a perfect place to enjoy the sunset. In the evening, I would treat my family to a nice dinner at Ago.
