67 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine ARTS, MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT Tina M. Vital commenced her career as an assistant to a designer, where she served for seven years. Drawing inspiration from the designer’s work, who create projects from his retail showroom, Ms. Vital became fascinated by the industry in light of its creative and client-focused approach. She notes that the designer for whom she worked allowed customers to save more money, time and effort in searching for various product lines in the furniture business, as well as allowed those customers direct access to purchase products that were already designed and curated. Since 2015, Ms. Vital has been the owner of Abode Beach Interiors, located in the state of Florida. Leveraging the inspiration that she received from her past work, she is also the lead designer, where she curates her own shop, provides construction documents, and takes part in every step of the design and curation process.

Throughout the course of her career, Ms. Vital has equally been influenced by two female designers, Lillian August and Dorothy Drapers.

In light of her exceptional undertakings, Ms. Vital was featured in Southern Home Magazine for interior design in 2021, as well as named Finest on the Emerald Coast by the Northwest Florida Daily News in 2021.
