How Many Years Have You Been Practicing Design? 11 years
Have You Worked In Any Other Cities/Countries? Yes, Indianapolis, Carmel, Sao Paulo (Brazil).
Do You Have Expertise In Other Fields Aside From Design? Construction. I also have a bachelors in Architecture and Urban Planner.
Trends You Forecast To Be Relevant In Design and Society in 2013? For 2013, my forecast is that people are now looking at their homes and making them more of a reflection of their day-to-day activities, designed for their family with a lot more casual look. Neutrals will be a sophisticated option embracing a comfortable look. This year, stripes were a huge runway trend so I believe we will see stripes in home decor as well as, especially on fabrics. It brings movement and a sense of welcoming to any room.
I also believe that the rooms will have a more feminine style, but not girly. Curve lines and a sense of modernity with sleek furniture selection.
