Previous Interior Design Work
I am passionate for interior design and all things home décor, with an appreciation for beautiful pieces of art independently of their style or period. For this reason I did an intensive course of decorative arts at the prestigious Escola Artes Decorativas Ricardo Espirito Santo in Lisbon, which included painting in porcelain, tiles, and furniture. I also did an intensive course of gilding at Giltwood Restoration, London.
I attended for one academic year at Scola for the furniture restoration course.
In Lisbon, I worked on the decoration of private and commercial spaces in collaboration with interior designers — these experiences were highly successful in creating and renovating spaces to an outstanding level of excellence.
I did a work of decorative arts in a restaurant that I decorated in a traditional techniques a big frame for a panel and a big stained glass to be on the ceiling and lights pass trough.
In private houses I transformed a plain wardrobe doors with frames decorated hand finished in a similarity of colour and pattern to the fabric of the bed cover, cushions and curtains. Made with high precision on measurement to a perfect fit.
The client had some spare mirrored glasses and she asked if we (me and the interior design) want to use them to any work, as the same time she wanted a different wardrobe doors, I had the idea how to use them, and this work is the result of a good idea.
For the bathrooms I created beautiful decor hand finished frames in a good selection of prints also I did on beautiful pieces of marble resin a chic finishing in wall mounted lights.
In collaboration with a Interiors design shop I created many decorative pieces, especial décor in frames for beautiful and chic prints, the shop owner had same objects that didn't make sales so I changed the style with a more sophisticated finished using gold leaf, silver leaf and other pieces a touch of gold in paint.
In Christmas season I made a beautiful windows display with pieces created / decorate by myself.
All pieces had my artist signature and attached a small personalized certificate card.
