With a grounding as a design graduate in fashion and through my academic and industry work in fashion design in combination with an in-depth knowledge of furniture trade, I am in a unique position to bring the experience of over 30 years in creating distinct interiors with judicious choices and timeless elegance.
I pride myself in understanding my clients requirements and aspirations whilst introducing them to new ideas to realize their dream. The projects, being retail, hotels or private residences, are conceived through detailed dialogue with my clients, offering clear lines, functionality and playful nuances, delivering stylish and comfortable environments. My appreciative sense of mood, color, texture and technique together with my interest in architectural detailing allows for creation of sophisticated interiors often with distinct flavors and a recognizable stylistic signature.
In-depth research into social history of buildings and localities has helped in creation of unique concepts, allowing for the transformation of otherwise anonymous hotels into places of authenticity, welcoming and warm, reflecting local flavors and colors.
I value the collaborative process of working with other disciplines such as builders, graphic artists, furniture designers and manufacturers encouraging them to realize interiors and develop products for specific projects, helping to realize precise narratives and stories. This has resulted in the creation of unique wallpapers, artworks, fabrics, lighting and furniture.
For hotels and hospitality sector I assess the needs of the guests and the operators alike, striking the right balance, but most importantly I look to offer a welcoming, comfortable and a “wanna have at home” experience for the guests. My philosophy is that these interiors must be alluring, modern, and luxurious with a long shelf life, free from fads and passing trends. The design theme should not only cover all areas but also products as accessories and tableware to complete the experience for a memorable stay or visit.
