Lea is born in Beirut, a historical city with an abundance of natural beauty. Her passion for design led her to Milan where she obtained a master’s degree and spent two inspiring years expanding her knowledge of the field. Her style consists of mixing different types of materials, colors and patterns while maintaining a pleasant feel to the eye and soul and creating a space that looks like its inhabitants.
With six years of experience, Lea has completed many residential projects including apartments, villas, lofts and summerhouses. She also works on offices and retail spaces. With well-researched ideas and clear 2D and 3D visualizations, she makes sure to give her clients a convincing vision for their uniquely designed space.
What do you think is the most challenging aspect of being an interior designer?
It is a constant challenge to create comfortable and beautiful spaces that are specific to each client and adapting my own style while avoiding being repetitive. I travel as much as possible to keep my eyes fresh and inspired. I do a lot of research on new materials and trends that can be incorporated in each new project.
How do you think interior design should adapt for the 21st Century?
Our times have been very challenging, especially now with the pandemic. Many changes should happen in the world and more specifically in architecture. New measurements will be taken into consideration, emphasizing spaces over others (such as replacing secondary living areas with home offices, having wider elevators, eliminating handles, etc.). Now more than ever “change is the new constant”. Interior design must adapt to all these changes and offer new dynamic solutions.
One small thing which makes a big difference in the home?
I love table lamps. General lighting is very important, but one little table lamp in each room makes a big difference! We tend to forget to include it since it is a “decorative” item, however it adds coziness, warmth and love to every home.
If you had to choose another profession, what would it be, and why?
A painter. I used to paint when I was younger and I have this unlimited love for colors and shapes. That’s what brought me to interior design I guess! I would love to get back to it one day and eventually have my paintings displayed in the projects I design!
