From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I like to draw my inspiration from things other than design, such as travels, fashion, the city, graphics like tattoo art, and architecture, then bringing the things I love from them into different projects.
What’s your prediction for the next big trend in design?
I think anything can go out of trend easily. So, I think the next big trend of design will be focused on pieces that are eco-friendly and timeless. Simple pieces that are built to last and adapt no matter what your style is ten years from now. Then adding small decor elements (such as pillows, accessories and artwork) that bring you up to date.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
I'm not a doctor or a lawyer, I can’t save lives. But,I can make people happy through design. That's what I love the most. Being able to make clients happy and inspired with my designs.
