I especially enjoy using contemporary art and furniture in period buildings. I blend the most primitive with the outstandingly modern, the most luxurious with the humble and the rigorous with the very personal in order to give a space a sense of mystery and uniqueness.
I feel that a succesful space is one that has an air of history and permanence, true personality, is comfortable and appears to have evolved into what it is naturally.
Lighting is one of the basic factors that ensures the creation of an appealing and attractive interior. I always prepare a versatile lighting plan at the beginning of each project to highlight those elements that deserve special attention. This is how a feeling of mystery is created. It allows quick changes in the atmosphere of a space depending on a particular mood or time of day.
I often employ unusual antiques and carpets, archaeological pieces and contemporary art in my projects. I also enjoy incorporating furniture especially created for a project by craftsmen or artists, rare textiles, and collections and pieces belonging to my clients that relate to their past or to a passion in their lives.
I am always on the lookout for special pieces in markets, wherever my travels take me, in order to overcome a sense of deja vu. I love putting together objects that come from the most unusual places and strive to create harmonious environments using the most diverse elements. Ephemeral details such as burning candles, fresh flowers, music and special scents add a final touch and contribute greatly to the success of a space.
My eclecticism and philosophy of interior design have been heavily influenced by the fact that I have travelled and lived in many different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and America, and, as a result, I have been directly exposed to the most diverse cultures and customs. During my years in London, I attended courses on lighting, design, antiques, art and drawing.
I become passionately involved in every detail that helps a space become a refuge from the hassle of everyday life in the 21st century. Fundamentally I believe that basically, it is the spirit of a place that matters.
My work has been published in Elle Decoration (Spanish and Greek Issues), Marie Claire and several Spanish and Greek interior design magazines and newspaper supplements.
I have recently opened a showroom / interior design studio in Palma de Mallorca.
