We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
I love the feelings that come out of a great design project. The feeling of awe in an impressive space, the feeling of balance and comfort in a neatly designed home, the feeling of safety and belonging and so forth. Design is way much more than the eyes can see.
What drives you to design?
I love to help people create a space they’d love to spend time in. It is very fulfilling to watch a non-functional and without character house gradually transform into a vibrant and inspiring home.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
Mostly from my clients needs. The more the needs and the tighter the time schedule the more I push my limits, the more I create. Sounds bizarre but it actually works!
