Location: Financial District, Manhattan, New York
This is my sanctuary…a studio in the heart of the Financial District, in New York city, about two blocks away from the new Freedom Tower.
I moved to the Big Apple, 2 years ago, after a remarkable career for my age on TV & Digital in Europe. Sometimes when everything goes right, you have to go left. When you reach your own high peak, you certainly have to recalculate. And that’s exactly what I did.
Trying to find ways to exercise my creative muscle and creating a place will feel home in New York lead me into decorating this studio. It wasn’t a one day process and certainly took my time to enjoy and feel the space. I wanted to create a room, that would make me happy on a daily basis, will be easy to make changes (choosing the white color palette helps with that) and also fit my needs.
I’m heavily influenced by the Scandinavian design as I love to live in simplicity. Simple lines, pal colors and a light accesories space create an easier life both spiritually and practically. I mixed many different brands, from Hay and Muuto to Norman Copenhagen and CB2. I accommodated all my needs in one single room. From a dining table, to a sofa, an office area and my bed. I spend my days going from on corner to the other and I really enjoy looking at the room every time from a different perspective. The incredible views, on the 25th floor, certainly help.
