Position: Creative Director
Favourite place in my house/office: the kitchen, because is the place where I can give vent to my creativity and I can relax at the same time.
Best decorated/most inspirational place in the world: the best decorated place is National Palace of Sintra, Portugal where the Far East blends with the West. The most inspirational place is India, the country of the fabrics, where the craftsmanship is still alive.

I was inspired by the Greek summer wind on the clear sea water in Crete island.
How would the interior of your dream house look?
