What is your favorite project and why?
The current project is usually the favourite as you are fully engaged in the creative process.
What’s your criteria for the products you choose to your designs? And where do you look for them?
The product should be fit for purpose and be aesthetically pleasing. We source from all over the world, from suppliers as far afield as the Phillipines, the US and Japan. We attend all the trade fairs, shop for antiques from 1stDibs so our vintage pieces could come from Miami or San Francisco or Chicago and are constantly on the look out for new manufacturers.
How did your partnership started?
We were working individually as interior designers when Eleanora was approached to pitch for a large project and asked me to help. We worked well together and discovered we had the same likes and dislikes and decided to join forces.
Can you describe us your day at the office?
I wouldn’t say there is a typical day which is part of the fun of being an interior designer. We often attend site meetings first thing in the morning with the architect, contractor and any other members of the design team. The client is often present at these meetings too. When we are preparing for a presentation we work in our well stocked library pulling finishes, fabrics and furniture for schemes. We present to our client in different ways… with mood boards or 3-D visuals and large samples. A client presentation meeting runs for two or three hours generally. The most satisfying part of the job is when we install our projects…it’s so exciting unpacking all the furniture and seeing the design come to life and a house become a home!
