Can you share your journey and inspiration behind designing a visually appealing and functional interior?

Designing started for me with clothing. As I got older, I naturally expanded into interior design. As an adult, cultivating a personalized home became an important interest, driving me to incorporate design into various aspects of my life.

My visual arts journey began in middle school, capturing my perspective despite not being camera-savvy. Now, with a photographer partner, I'm delving deeper into visual arts, embracing the learning curve. Excited to share more of this creative journey!

Certainly, my style has evolved significantly over the years. In both my clothing and home design, I've introduced more colors compared to the past. I love fine lines but now enjoy experimenting with various shapes and textures. However, my commitment to maintaining a cozy, comfortable, and relaxed atmosphere remains uwavering.

My journey in designing a visually appealing and functional interior began with a passion for creating spaces that reflect both aesthetics and utility. Inspiration often stems from nature, art, and diverse cultures, blending these elements to craft unique and inviting environments.

When curating a space, what elements do you consider essential for creating a perfect and harmonious environment?

Essential elements for a perfect and harmonious environment include proper lighting, thoughtful furniture arrangement, a mix of textures, and a balance between minimalism and personal touches. Creating a cohesive color palette also plays a crucial role.

Do you have any tips for individuals looking to enhance their home or office design without undergoing a major renovation?

To enhance home or office design without major renovations, focus on strategic decor updates. Introduce statement pieces, rearrange furniture for better flow, experiment with lighting, and incorporate versatile storage solutions to declutter and optimize space.

Optimizing space for me means finding creative ways to maximize functionality while maintaining aesthetics. My game changer was investing in multifunctional furniture and storage solutions. What works best for me is having a clutter-free workspace with ample natural light and personalized touches that inspire creativity.

What does comfort mean to you – not only in interior design but also in other aspects of life?

Comfort, in design and life, is about cultivating an atmosphere that nurtures well-being. Soft textures, ergonomic furniture, and a warm color palette contribute to physical comfort, while a balance between work and personal life fosters mental comfort.

In your perspective, does space have a gender? Are there any elements or themes you include into your designs to create a space that feels feminine?

In my view, space itself doesn’t inherently possess a gender; however, certain elements and details can evoke a sense of femininity in a design. In my home, I often incorporate candles and flowers, introduce soft textures, and add vibrant colors like yellow to instill a sense of warmth and playfulness. It’s worth noting that these design choices are not exclusive to any gender; rather, they aim to create an inviting and enjoyable atmosphere for all.
