WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A DESIGNER?
As a teenager I was interested in art and maths that lead me to discover my passion for architecture. After graduating from the university with a degree in architecture I was mostly inspired with the influence of the space on human's daily life, combined with my love of colours, furniture, textiles I continued my career as interior designer. My passion for interior design and desire to learn more lead me to the course at KLC Certificate Interior Design that opened me many new possibilities. Working as an architect/ interior designer for last 15 years was challenging, inspiring and fascinating experience.
FROM WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION?
I draw inspiration from the nature and travels, blending influences from different cultures, from mix of materials, colours and patterns. I am also inspired by the client, his lifestyle and interests which make each project unique.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL MAKES YOUR STYLE UNIQUE?
I am always trying to create an atmosphere to evoke an emotion, to offer a new experience with very sophisticated style and selection of furniture. I think each client is different, special and I approach them that way bringing technical knowledge and space planning experience.
