Tell us your biggest design secret:
Each project, each client for me is like a puzzle. I try to feel my clients, to understand what they love, what are their value in life because their space has to reflect them, their personality, lifestyle. I am just a tool in the process.
What drives you to design?
I love to help people. Design always solves some problems - "not enough space", "too much space' & I don't know what to do with it, "doesn't feel like home" etc. It is a pleasure to see how people are happy when they leave in a functional & beautiful space.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from my clients. So many different stories, lifes, nationalities - it't unbelievable!
