Juan has a BA in Interior Design from the Illinois Institute of Art. His passion was kindled as a teenager while building new homes with his family's contracting business. Originally an architecture major, he transferred to interior design so he could focus on his passion: creating beautiful, functional spaces. Juan believes that quality of life is greatly increased when someone truly loves the space they live in. His mission is to create that same sense of joy and satisfaction with each of his clients.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from everyday life. From nature to sky scrappers, anything can inspire great design.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
I love designing because of the satisfaction I get from creating beautiful, functional spaces that the client loves.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
While it may seem like common sense, one thing I always keep in mind when designing a space is maintaining a flow and a sense of cohesion. This includes making sure colors, window treatments, furniture, etc. compliment each other without competing with each other.
