Career

How did you get involved in the interior design Industry?

I think this job is very vocational for which is necessary to feel everything you do. Since I was a little girl, I kept changing the furniture around my house, always looking for a better look aesthetically.

How would you describe your work style? Do you have any kind of signatures that help to identify your projects?

My work style starts with the first contact with the space in which I get my first inspiration about the lighting, the materials, and the environment. Once this step is done, we start drawing in the plan and everything that comes next is “easier”. In addition, after talking about their necessities and analyzing the client’s personality, I always ask for a style, colors preference even though it is obvious that if they contact us, it is because our studio fits with their style, but we always adapt to every client’s style.

Some signatures that help identify my projects would be my color range which usually is very neutral, black, and white are a must, and the green that the vegetation brings.  About materials, natural stone, and wood. In all my projects I give a lot of importance to the lighting, it is essential that the homes are luminous in order to achieve a good atmosphere that gives a warmer and more welcoming environment thanks to the indirect lighting. 

Being in love with our work is always the key to achieving better results. Are you in love with this job? What do you love most about being an interior designer?

Yes, I am in love with my job. What I like most about being an interior designer is creativity, having new challenges, creating different projects, having grateful clients, and creating the “wow” effect.

How would you describe your personal decorating style?

I don’t have a specific style. I like to extract different things from each of them and create an eclectic style. I consider myself a little classic but adapted to trends

– All artists need some inspiration to work, and interior designers are artists too. So, what or who really inspires you?

In Spain, I admire Luis Bustamante, Pascua Ortega, the creativity of Lazaro Rosa-Violan, and also, I feel very inspired by the risky designs of Kelly Wearlest.

Projects

How important is a perfect chemistry between you and your clients to achieve the best results?

The chemistry between the client and me is very important. Fundamentally, to start a project is necessary to know the client and their needs. There is a very phycological work at the beginning and once it is analyzed, inspiration is needed, a lot of it, which comes according to the needs they have marked you.

Choosing the best pieces to compose a project can be the secret to getting the best overall result. Although it seems easy, this is a delicate task and needs full attention on time to execute. Do you have some tips for those who do not know well how to start a challenge like this?

I think that interior designer must have their own style and personality. Clients must find you for your aesthetic. It’s important to differentiate yourself.

Future

What has been your greatest accomplishment as a designer? What goals do you have for the future?

My greatest accomplishment as a designer is making the client happy. I think my projects have their own, classic and timeless style and it’s what certain persons are looking for, so perhaps this is part of my success. 

For the future, one of my goals is to have the chance to design a boutique hotel.

Do you have a favorite project or a favorite story about one of your projects?

All projects have something special. Restaurants also give a lot of satisfaction, and they are a big showcase for many people. Exhibitions like Casa Decor or Marbella Design are a big reference for Spanish interior design and can’t be left unmentioned.
