Originally from Finland, I have also lived many years in Stockholm and London before arriving in Santa Barbara some 17 years ago. Though I grew up in a household where the standard of the home and décor was a priority, a recent restoration and remodel of a lovely 50’s home placed me on this new path in life.
With respect for original character in a home and sympathy for owners facing renovations, I hope to be of help with the complicated (yet exciting!) process. It is inspiring when a space has been transformed to meet current needs in a subtle, harmonious way. In order to understand the whole process, I plan to incorporate construction to my interior design & drafting classes.
My own design aesthetic is rooted in the Nordic/Scandinavian practical simplicity, however any style executed with thought and attention to detail translates into coherence and sophistication.
This vignette is inspired by the trendy patterns in flooring and mix of materials, which is all displayed here with a fabulous rug, solid wood credenza and rattan chairs.
