I’ve started blogging in 2009  to capture daily design cravings. Back then, I was a design student trying to get a grasp of the abyss  of the design industry and develop my personal voice. Now, 5 years later, I am a freelance interior designer in full force with experience working on some of the top international hotel and residential properties as part of the renowned luxury interior design company – Hirsch Bedner & Associates.

I’ve learnt the design is much more than just a graphic or function.  Our media-driven society has become too mature for simple visual pleasures.  Truly unique design brings the story and the experience like never before. So now I search of that meaning, the one that captures you in a space, a book or a dress. And in that search I travel the world, immerse myself into cultures and places.

LA PERSONA GRATA is a place to reflect on my journey and share worthy travel experiences, curated places to stop and thoughts on living a more international live.

So pour your self a cup of tea and join in.

    Hi, I’ve been following your blog for a while now and love everything – I especially love how you touch on all the different types of design!!

    Also I noticed you work with HBA, I’m in Australia and was wondering if you have any tips for applying for an internship with them?

    Keep up the inspiring work,
