JILL LIFSEY INTERIOR DECORATOR CONSULTANTS
GIOVANNA Interior Decorator Consultant
1- How long have you been designing?
I have been in the industry for 4 years. I was introduced to the design industry at such a young age which has instilled great appreciation for architecture & space planning.
2- How long have you been working with Jill Lifsey Designs?
I have been privileged to join Jill’s team in November 2021
3- What is your favorite design trend? Least? Why?
I have more than one favorite design trend. I would say it is a mix of organic modern & glam minimalist. I love the concept of bridging the gap between nature & indoor living while adding a hint of luxury & a pop of fur. I love pairing neutral tones with gold & taupe/mauve hues that blend well with just about any bold color or statement piece! My least favorite trend would be considered mid century styled homes with distressed wood & an overload of red.
4- What is a common"design rule" that you think SHOULD be broken?
A common rule that I think should be broken is matching finishes & mixing wood finishes. Mixing textures can liven up a room, it allows your eyes to reach every corner of the room which is the ultimate goal.
5- Where do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration through other designers. I love picking the brains of others in the industry & learning different perspectives on how to approach a design! I love scrolling through Pinterest & seeing what others come up with & taking that to the drawing board & that’s what gets my wheels turning as to how I can functionally & beautifully bring in everything with my twist of style!
6- What do you find the most challenging when designing a home or space? Rewarding?
The most challenging aspect of design, in my opinion, is adapting to e-designing. I am a touch & feel, have a physical board of all the product finishes at hand & present it to clients, type of designer. However, e designing is the new norm & the future! The most rewarding in Design would most definitely be seeing everything come together. Seeing my vision for a space come to life is when I feel the most satisfied in my work. Plus, I live for the before & after photos; they always display a mood shift!
7- When you aren't designing, what do you spend your time doing?
I spend a lot of my time with my family & friends, going to the gym, reading a book, or laying out in the sun!
