I have visited and lived in many amazing places and cities all around the world, but it may not come as a big surprise to you that I left my heart in New York City. One of the factors that destines why I fall in love with a place, is the history and the architecture behind the buildings (which is why I don’t love the suburbs because there is little to nothing beautiful or remotely special about anything there… Hello soccer moms, freeways and badly dressed people). When I travel and explore new places, I’m searching for originality, extravagance and beauty. Design is like a time capsule. It captures the aspirations of the moment during which it was made. I’m obsessed with historic design because it tells a visual story of our human experience.
