JILL LIFSEY INTERIOR DECORATOR CONSULTANTS
JORGE Interior Decorator Consultant
1- How long have you been designing?
It’s been six great years of pursuing my passion for interior design.
2- How long have you been working with Jill Lifsey Designs?
I started as an intern for Jill Lifsey Designs back in 2018.
3- What is your favorite design trend? Least? Why?
I truly enjoy pursuing a contemporary design approach that’s focused on human comfort. Warm tonal hues, soft curves and textures, and a bit of biophilia to make the space inviting.
I have to admit, my least favorite design trend is (still) velvet
4- What is a common"design rule" that you think SHOULD be broken?
A Common Design Rule I think should be broken is the creation of dull, monochromatic spaces. A space must excite the eye to not fall in the steps of extreme Brutalism; whether it’s through the use of colors or textures.
5- Where do you find your inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from two main sources: 1. Human interaction with built environments, maximized to the highest potential given the project parameters. 2. Convergence of human built environments and natural aspects in the form of invigorating elements.
6- What do you find the most challenging when designing a home or space? Rewarding?
The most challenging task when designing is coming to an agreement among: my design vision for the space, the client's personal vision to their space, and the feasibility of these ideas converging in a cohesive union. Most Rewarding? Finding an attractive solution to an issue that greatly affects the functionality, look,and feel of a space.
7- When you aren't designing, what do you spend your time doing?
When not designing, I tend to ground myself with artistic expression (music, literature, and art) and time spent with loved ones.
