From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
Mostly from travel & my client's needs. Travelling always bring a fresh new idea to mind and I just love to combine it with the way my clients use their space in their everyday lives. For me, design is about creating a space that is beautiful, enjoyable to live, but also strive to meet the functional and economic requirements of my clients.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
Nothing beats the feeling of getting a call/ message from my clients on how much they love their new space, seeing the space comes to live and how much it affect their life.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
Always listen to clients & open to new ideas! The most successful design comes from a great collaboration between clients and designer. Every project is a meaningful opportunity, and every design decision has the potential to improve one's experience of a space.
