Welcome, happy to have you here!

Meet me

I can’t remember when I started loving beautiful interiors. 

I think my passion for interior design was born when I was still a kid — and I have to thank my grandmother for this. She was deeply passionate about art, enough to collect paintings, and she used to change the arrangement of furniture in the house almost every month. Grandma Carla bought lots of interior design magazines and collected them in a basket next to the couch. I remember Sundays spent flicking through the pages of those magazines, dreaming of having one day a beautiful home to decorate and live in with my family. 

That dream came true and my passion for home stories and furniture turned into a proper job 10 years ago, when I started working for interior magazines as a freelance journalist

10 years (and lots of stories) later, I’ve made a step further and became an interior decorator. From a challenging 2020 something good came out: extra time. Extra time that I spent attending classes on color theory, lighting, furniture styles, and floor plans and I’m running my first interior decoration consulting projects. Mine is an unconventional path to becoming an interior decorator but I am strong with 10 years of working in the design industry gathering first-hand experience, refining my taste and my eye for design, and connecting with architects, furniture designers, and suppliers.

Why work with me?

I bring my passion for interiors and my extensive knowledge of the furniture industry to each project. Think of a project together as a creative conversation that will end up with you having the space you were dreaming of. 

I believe in a good balance between quality and cost: you don’t need a big budget to make your home functional and beautiful. It’s my task to find the perfect options according to your requests, style, budget, and what the market has to offer. There are many fancy manufacturers out there but not all of them are worth your money. 

When I approach a new interior project I always take stock of what already exists. I don’t like to throw away items that are still in good condition and can be reinvented or redecorated according to the new style. This also means sustainability to me. 

Last but not least, I think each home is one-of-a-kind and that is why I use to say that “I design real homes, not showrooms”. Your home should firstly support your activities and well-being and it should tell your story. 

«Domestic space is where we live our lives. It both reflects and contains our inner life, our social life, our ethics, our mindset, our identity, our family, our roots, our sense of belonging and longing. It is where so many of the important events in our lives take place»

My blog

I share inspiration and my tips for making your home beautiful, and truly yours, here on my blog — 

The blog started out as a place to mostly share news and thoughts on my job but it turned into a digital sourcebook to visit anytime you are looking for interior & decor inspiration, useful resources, tips, products, and design places to visit. My mission is to help you look at your home with fresh eyes so you can turn it into a place you love and you feel just right in. Even if you live in a rented apartment like me: don’t give up on making it truly your own!

In its very first year up and running the blog got shortlisted for the 2020 edition of the AMARA Interior Blog Awards. An important acknowledgment of the hard work done so far and an incredible energy booster for the future!
