Through the renovation process of our property in Italy, my interest in interior design rose to such a level, that I had to know and do more in this field. After a practical virtual interior design course at the National Design Academy in the UK, I am now doing a virtual Bachelor in Interior Architecture and Design at the Interactive Design Institute (IDI, cooperation with Hertfordshire university). So from drawing only broom puppets in my youth I am developing my drawing skills to technical floor plans, furniture and 3D spaces. Both by hand and computer aided (CAD). I have a clear interest in contemporary and functional design, when appropriate combined with old(er) elements. Through visiting design events such as the Salone dei Mobili in Milan, through design magazines and through visiting showrooms and shops I try to spot trends and styles.
