Designer Profile

Art, Functionality, Interaction

These three words define the reason why I fell in love with Interior Design. Fromm my first contact with it over a decade ago until now. Through Interior Design I’m able to create artistic and functional spaces. Through the interaction client-Designer, the Designer can develop a space that satisfy the customer and suits their needs.

As Designers we have the daily challenge to find balance between beauty and function, between the artistic and the feasible. And this balance is useless if it doesn’t strengthen human interaction. This is the reason why the connection between client and designer is key to achieve a good project. The passion I have for this challenge is imprinted in the level of detail of my projects.

When not interacting with clients and suppliers, I invest my free time on family and friends. Just like my projects, I believe that love is in the details and relationships need dedication and daily attention.

This year I started the most important project of my life, I had my first child! And just like in my professional life, this project is always updating, evolving and frequently changing schedule and scope of work. This challenge of being flexible and at the same time keeping everything under control is what makes me more and more in love with life and interior design!

So cheers to both!
