WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A DESIGNER?

My fascination for beautiful interiors started at a very young age. Growing up in Paris, my mother and I often visited historic buildings at the weekend. I was accustomed to seeing striking interior architecture and soon became attracted to perfectly styled rooms, sumptuous furniture and precious fabrics.

When moving to London, I started a career in set design for film, television and theatre. I liked the idea of creating the world of a character, the background of a story. My vocation to work in interior design and decoration became more apparent when I realised that I could also create the scenery of everyday life. I then decided to enrol in an Interior Design Course at KLC School of Design in Chelsea.

Today my work as an Interior Designer is extremely rewarding. I get to be creative and use my technical skills whilst creating interior spaces that can make a difference in how life is experienced.

FROM WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION?
London is also a wonderful city for design. I enjoy keeping abreast of industry trends and attending talks and events organised by the British Institute of Interior Design. I go to design shows whenever possible. Looking at art and observing nature are also key sources of inspiration.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL MAKES YOUR STYLE UNIQUE?
I see any given space as a blank canvas and I like to explore all possible combinations to produce an eye-catching environment that would suit my clients brief. I can create a subtle, neutral decor yet I do not shy away from presenting bold, whimsical designs if required.

Whenever possible, I like to include sustainable design in my work.
