Two summers ago we took a road trip together from New York to Florida. Along the way, we visited Charleston and Savannah. It was a first for both of us, so we were already really inspired and there were a lot of historic homes and designs to soak in while we explored. We were very creatively charged on that trip and had a lot of time to talk while on the road! My husband, who is an architect, was working for a firm in Manhattan at that point and I was just beginning to dip my toes into interior design- something that both my grandmother and my mother studied. Everything felt very full circle when we decided to start our own Interior Architecture & Design firm a year ago. It has been really rewarding thus far and we feel so grateful to be surrounded by incredible clients who trust us. We have an exceptionally talented team of Latin American designers, based in Spain who support every project we take on- from a creative research development standpoint to the actual designing and rendering of Casa's visions.
We're working on a lot of exciting projects right now including our first commercial project; the Ceremonia flagship in SoHo, New York. This project has been especially fun, as I've worked on this from two different approaches, both as an interior designer, but also as the Creative Director of Ceremonia. Conceptually, it was really exciting for us to draw a lot of inspiration from Latin American architecture and design - from Mexican Modernism to Cuban colonial texture and architectural elements.
We are also in the design and development phase of several larger-scale residential projects in New York
