How and why did you get into the interior design Industry?
I took up my career in 1997, when I was only 20. First I dedicated myself to fashion, then to interior design.
How would you describe your style? Do you have a signature touch?
My style can be defined as “American”. I love to use colors and I’ve learned so much from Tony Duquette’s books. I make a lot of research through the Italian handcrafted excellences and I always try to find out particular objects that will characterize the house. My personal touch is definitely the employment of many art works in every place, even in the bathrooms.
Is there anything exciting that you are working on at the moment that you can tell us about? Any new projects?
At the moment I’m working, in partnership with architectural Arte Consultant studio in Milan, on a 12.000mq building in Riyadh.
What do you love about being an interior designer?
What I love the most in my job is the research, the personal satisfaction of my customers and also to buy amazing objects for my projects.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
As Sir Paul Smith used to say: you can find inspiration in everything. Travels can help.
Which major international events do you attend to get all the latest novelties?
Certainly the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Which design brands do you love the most?
I’m in love with Boca do Lobo, an high level portuguese industry. They create extraordinary furnitures, “stunning” I would say.
Which colours, textures and techniques do you prefer in furniture design?
I truly love peacock green, pink and oil blue. Le Toile de Jouy, the silk tapestry. But every house has its own story.
What is your philosophy on design and life?
Nam myoho renge kyo.
Describe yourself in three words.
Curious, cheerful, passionate.
