Who has inspired the most your work and style?
I am heavily influenced by European, forward-thinking design. Zaha Hadid, Philip Stark, Marcel Wanders, Peter Marino, have all been huge influences in my design career due to their ability to step out of the box and create.
Quality and craftsman are of the utmost importance when selecting items for an interior project. Selection of these items are also equally important to sustain everlasting classic design.
Describe your design approach and philosophy.
Our philosophy to design is to “Live Stylish”. Environments dictate moods and creativity and therefore, there should also be a strong focus on environments as they affect all of us on a daily basis. Therefore, I first review a project by its surrounding environment and then its actual environment before starting the design process.
What is your idea of the ‘ultimate luxury’?
Modern living with an emphasis on Feng Shui to enhance the energy of the home. Everything else is just the jewelry on top of an already beautiful canvas.
What is the one design/decor you cannot imagine your clients living without?
Art and Natural Light. Art creates emotion which is extremely important to enhance surroundings and natural light enhances mood.
