Using bold and unconventional techniques she creates eco minimalistic interiors that are nowadays among the most important trends in international design.

“Design is a whole philosophy, it mirrors client’s inner world and that is why he becomes an ally and participates in the design process. It is of utmost importance to see and understand the gist of the expected results. It goes deeper than just the description of the preferred interior style”
I «educate» my clients, but do not impose my opinions or views. I channel wisely their wishes, inculcating a taste for quality design.
