I am an interior designer with 20 years of experience in designing residential spaces for high-end clients in Europe and in the US. While cooperating with experienced European colleagues on various projects for high-end clients across Europe, I acquired valuable experience in both architectural work and interior design. Even more importantly, I gained an invaluable insight into European aesthetics and a sense of design that is both functional and highly sophisticated.
This pragmatic yet utterly classy approach to designing spaces, devoid of all unnecessary clutter and confusion, with clear and high-quality ideas, lines and solutions influenced my work immensely and it opened my eyes to ways of feeling and creating spaces that would never be able to come to life without me broadening my views and experiences first, expanding on what I’ve learned and letting different cultural, social and historical moments create a sense of class that is literally out of this world. Through various and extensive work I was able to build upon this knowledge and create spaces for clients from different cultural backgrounds, always bringing this sense of clarity, efficiency and focus on the highest possible quality in both performance and materials to the table.
The moto leading me in life and in design is always: Fashion comes and goes, but the style is forever. When a person walks through a house they should react instinctively, they should feel it and it should feel right. Designing a space isn’t only decorating what you see – it’s creating how you feel, making choices for a perfect fit.
