I am an architecture student and I am strongly drawn to Design, Decor, DIY and Lights. I love experimenting with different styles of designs from Art-deco to Contemporary, from Eclectic to Scandinavian and so many more. If I was to describe my style of design, I like to find a balance between traditional and modern style; Pastels and Neutrals are my favorite colors to play with. I love layering and adding textures through different materials of fabrics, metals, woods and tiles. I feel that’s what gives a design some personality of people staying there and makes it unique.
