How do you start your design process?
I start the design process from a thorough research. I gather all the necessary information, and I start structuring them and translating them into visuals.
What do you learn from your clients?
I try to learn the most I can about my clients, to find out what their story is, what their background is and what they’re passionate about. I feel that it is very important to involve them in the design process so they feel they are co-creators of the final effect. Every client is different and every time the designer’s role is to translate the client’s personal story visually into the home they will inhabit.
What helps improve every home?
I’m an ideas person. I can come up with many solutions to the same problem and I think I am really good at finding solutions that aren’t so obvious, which helps to create interiors that are quite unique.
What would be your favorite project?
I have a strong connection with contemporary art, so a house for an art-loving person would be an interesting challenge.
Where can you help most?
A good rug! I find rooms without rugs empty and just unfinished. A good handwoven rug will add a cozy, lived-in feeling.
What is the source of your inspiration?
I spend a lot of time by the ocean, observing the power and beauty of waves but also looking at the layers of rocks and admiring the compressed geological history of our planet encapsulated in every little stone. I do think that nature is the best designer and the abundance of colors, patterns and textures existing in nature is a never-ending source of inspiration.
