Name: Laura Aviva of l'aviva home
Location: SoHo NYC
I moved into this space in SoHo just over a year ago — it's a rental, but I did a complete gut renovation on it (there are some pretty shocking pre-photos). It was quite a task. I was a creative director at Travel + Leisure for 7+ years, and now have l'aviva home, a series of online trunk shows featuring luxe artisan home wares collected on my travels around the globe. The collections reflect the belief that the things we surround ourselves with should possess a soul, a history, and a purpose beyond mere decoration — they should help us connect to the world. This 'credo' is reflected in my home and my studio.
