Describe your go-to style:
My style has two rules: always keep it comfortable and harmonic to you. I feel like you can have different styles depending on where you are, depending on how you feel. That is why i feel so eclectic with my choices. I like to give my projects a lot of flexibility and provide options! I use more modern design on my personal projects. For my clients, i observe the place, and the client and listen as much as i can to figure out the best style that matches with their expectations.
What drives you to design?
I feel I was born with the desire to draw, match colors and create things. I can remember drawing and doing art crafts with my mom. I can still remember creating light fixtures with recycling. Your environment influences the direction of your design. Taking the unique information of each client , meeting their design needs and desires drives me to create the best space possible.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I get inspiration from everywhere! Talking to people and their learning their design wishes; there are no limits for creation. A good trip or an art gallery are always good options for inspiration too. I also actually have dreams that I transfer on paper!
