About me
I am a professional Interior Designer with over a decade of experience in commercial and residential interiors. Originally from Toronto, Canada, I am currently based in East London where I co-found a boutique interior design studio called 'Duelle', and also provide consultancy services to a local modern art gallery called 'M.A.H Gallery'.
Projects
  • Coat Paints Pop-Up Shop in Shoreditch
    Coat Paints Pop-Up Shop in ShoreditchFor LDF 2021 we worked with carbon positive paint company 'Coat Paints' to help bring to life their first 'IRL' interior space. Located on Rivington St. in Shoreditch, we helped position and design the interior architecture, colour palette, and space planning of this pop-up. We also curated a shoppable interior by bringing on vintage furniture dealers (Early Bird London and Diagonal Furniture) and a home delivery plant company (The Stem). Photography: Mariell Lind Hansen
