Personal interior concepts
With so many options available, interior design can be daunting. I love to help you find your style and create an interior reflective of who you are. Or an office design reflective of your corporate culture.
Whether we add mood to a space by amazing color or pattern, find you a unique statement piece or refurnish your new home or office entirely. Services range from digital flash advice up to full interior concepting and execution, covering:
- Interior concept: mood & style plan
- Color scheme & wallcovering, materiality advice
- Shopping or sourcing furniture, lighting, rugs, art, decorative objects, vintage items
- Hand sketched floor plan or digital 2D/3D visualisation
- (Re)styling on location
Nice to meet you!

‘A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life’ – Dalai Lama XIV
Inspired by the energy of evoking patterns, natural materials and sculptural forms, I love mixing up styles to set distinctive moods. Keeping ahead of trends I aim to create soulful homes that stimulate the senses and endure in time. Not just for the picture perfect or ‘showroom effect’, but for your comfort and joy in everyday living.
Creating interiors that feed your soul
How do you want to live and experience this space? What do you love and enjoy? What are the features and ‘spirit’ of this building? These are some of the questions we go through during an intake, from where the story starts to unfold.
We discuss the dreams and requirements for your house or your public/office space. Based on your wants, I work with sharply tailored instead of standard packages.
During the optional execution phase we work together with a select group of high quality suppliers, upholsters, painters and wallpaper hangers within our network, making sure to take great care of your house.
My story unfolded
As a curious child, I used to spend hours examining the textures and colors of my grandmothers’ Hermès shawls, flea market curiosities, her jewelry boxes and the stuffed animals around her home. I loved sifting through haute couture magazines with my mom and remodeled my room into different shops weekly.
During my career as a concept developer in the corporate information services industry, I used the same curiosity to create solutions for clients’ needs. By asking questions, careful listening, doing research and forecasting trends.
Fashion, architecture, art, culture, nature, film, restaurants, my sons and meditation are huge sources of inspiration. They educate my eye, make me aware and see things in different light.
Gaia Living –
Γαῖα; personification of the Earth and goddess in Greek myth
Originated from my personal need of decorative interior items that I could not find in the stores, I launched online shop Gaia Living in 2019. As a result, I started receiving requests to source specific objects, to give interior advice and to create interior concepts. I develop myself continuously; through courses in design and sketching, on the job and by an ever-growing sense of observation.
The GAIA living online boutique brings a collection consciously selected global and eclectic items to your own home. It’s the place where old meets new, east and west mix and spirituality unites with chic.
