Hello and welcome to this blog about my “interior world” as Interorissimo Marbella´s Founding Director and Interior Architect & Designer for the past 25 years.
I intend to use this space to share my passion for interior architecture & design and what this means to me.
I´ll be reporting on the latest luxury European furnishing trends and objects of desire that catch my eye on my visits to the main high-end luxury furniture trade fairs, as well as sharing anecdotes from my trips around the world, where I am always on the lookout for extraordinary handcrafted artisan furniture, fittings, ornaments and home accessories that give my signature “& factor” to the living spaces I create for my clients.
I first came to Marbella over 25 years ago when I was appointed Chief Interior Architect & Designer by the German Interior Design company I´d joined at the beginning of my career, after they won the contract for the 5-star Kempinski Hotel in Estepona. Back then, there was nowhere to buy luxury European interior design furnishings & accessories in Marbella, nor any Interior Design Consultancies, so you could say we were the Interior Design pioneers of Marbella!
Spotting a gap in the market, I chose to stay on and founded Interiorissimo Marbella, offering our Interior Architecture & Design services from the showroom we opened for FENDI casa (the first of its kind) next to the Marbella Club Hotel. This was at the start of the luxury property boom of the 90´s in the surrounding area which today is known as the Golden Mile, one of Marbella’s most sought-after addresses internationally. We were then approached by Giorgio Armani and went on to become franchise partners for the launch of the Armani Casa opening a showroom in the luxury harbour complex of Puerto Banús…another source of anecdotes to come!
Today, we offer our Interior Architecture & Design services from our showroom headquarters in the heart of Marbella Town; not only in Spain but Europe-wide and worldwide from the Middle East to the UK and the United States; specialising in turn-key exclusive brand design projects for private individuals, luxury developments and hotels.
Eventually, I´d like to share some “behind-the-scenes” challenges faced and overcome on select projects around the globe from concept to delivery in this blog, so that you can accompany me on a work in progress. In the meantime, I invite you to browse through our newly-designed website to find out more about how we work and to take a look at our portfolio featuring some of my signature “ Sophisticated Ambiences & “ creations.
So, welcome again to my “interior world” and I hope you´ll enjoy this blog. See you soon – or “hasta pronto” as we say here in Spain!
