“design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.”

paul rand


I’ve never really dared to believe that I was an artist. I am still light years away from drawing lines like as Picasso once did. Could I ever describe myself as a graphic designer? Who am I to use lines like Patricia Saunders did? And to be very honest, I just can’t draw a line as simple as Marcel Breuer ever did.

And yet, here I am, writing these lines because I do want to believe that I am creative enough to share my passion with the ones who’ll once become or already are the new design generation of today, who all think, good lines make this world even more beautiful.

Cinnamon restaurant


location Budapest, Hungary

the project Small restaurant offering

coffee, cakes and all day breakfast responsabilities

research | space planning | sourcing FF&E| creating moodboard | sample board | rendered sketches | 2D visuals | presentations This project aimed to create a relaxed atmosphere, a friendly cafe for locals and turists in the buzzing Hungarian capital. As a response to this big city life, the overall design expresses natural materials, few patterns and carefully selected harmonious colours. The space itself is 75 sqm with a dining room for about 30 guests, a counter, toilets, storage space and staff area with a small office at the back. Our solution to increase the number of guest to be seated was to create padded window seats with cushions to give a homely feeling to the cafe. To make the space even more cozy we used beautiful rattan indoor hanging chairs.

Hercegasszony hotel


location Mezotur, Hungary

the project Boutique hotel responsabilities

research | space planning | sourcing FF&E | creating moodboard | sample board | sketches | 2D visuals | 3D visuals | presentations When mixing the old with the new one often makes the other seem more beautiful. During the interior design of Hercegasszony Hotel we reached the historic building with a modern approach. In addition to respect and retain the old values we used contemporary design elements, created individual solutions, giving an unmistakable feeling and unique look to the space. In the former mansion building there are seven guest rooms with different layouts. We used rich colors and textures creating different themes to all bedrooms. Every room has a focal point of a wall mural with a beautiful bed and eye-catching headboard. Some of them are inspired by nature, lavender fields and water lilies or by the old times, featuring wild ducks and hunting dogs to name a few. Fine fabrics, rich materials and classical lines are giving this luxurious look to the boutique hotel in perfect harmony with the modern elements.

Surrey Quays, London flat


location London, UK

the project Contemporary living room in

Surrey Quays


research | space planning | sourcing FF&E | creating moodboard | sample board | rendered sketches | 2D visuals | 3D visuals | presentations | technical drawings of floorplan and elevations A metropolitan interior has to work much harder than a countryside or coastal one, because you can not rely on nature’s outdoor palette to lend you its framework. The easiest way to change the mood of a room instantly is to add beautiful colours to it. We absolutely loved the smokey hues paired with bright red and burgundy. The indoor living wall brings nature into this modern interior although the drink trolley gives glamorous charm to it. Our second version of the room was painting the walls in beautiful colours such as a splendid deep teal and purple. The depth of these shades, the wooden features and the succulents wall would transform this ultramodern apartment to a cozy urban jungle while the gleaming brass framed upholstered daybed from Jonathan Adler with lots of cushions and the gallery wall bring the opposite wall to life.

Chelsea, London flat


location London, UK

the project One bedroom flat in Chelsea responsabilities

research | space planning | sourcing FF&E | creating moodboard | sample board | rendered sketches | 2D visuals | 3D visuals | presentations | technical drawings of floorplan and elevations Fabrics, patterns, colours, antique, ultramodern, bright, dark. This flat has it all. So quirky yet very sophisticated. Flea market treasures and design classics came together to create something breathtakingly timeless in this one bedroom London flat. Industrial glass partition, Tom Dixon pendant light, William Morris Pimpernel wallpaper, Eames plastic chairs with French wooden ones around a clean lined oak dining table, Rodolphe bookcase from the Les Dandys collection by Ibride, Zanotta Sushi armchair in remarkable colour combination, Kaeko coffee table by Rafic Farah, futuristic chinoiserie wall mural. And all of this fits perfectly with an iconic IKEA piece in the middle. If you think this is an art collection of a furniture museum, well, look closer and think again. A perfectly planned helter-skelter. But definitely a shelter, a welcoming home.
