Global Inspirations Design is an award winning interior design studio and award winning blog, found and managed by Simone Aïda Baur.

“I like to describe my style as ‘contemporary with a touch of nostalgia’ and I create personalised and unique spaces, which you can identify with. Adding a personal item from your collection, a bold colour or any other element of surprise to the scheme will not only transform, but also personalise your space. It’s not only about the ingredients, but also how you mix them.”

What is my approach? The most important part of any project is YOU! Before I get started, I like to get a clear understanding of your likes and dislikes, your visions as well as your lifestyle. This will help me create the most suitable interior for you, a place that gives you the sensation that you are home.

Global Inspirations Design is not just a name, it is meant to tell a story – my story. Growing up in an artistic family, creativity has always been part of my life. Despite my early desire to decorate and design homes (I regularly used to change the layout and décor of my own room), I also had the desire to travel and explore the world from a young age. This is how I ended up in the hotel industry, having studied Tourism Management as my first career. For many years I pursued a career in the luxury hotel sector, mostly in business development. During my many travels, I had the opportunity to stay at numerous luxury, boutique and design hotels and soon realized that I didn’t just want to enjoy beautiful spaces, but actually create them. So I decided to venture into the unknown and signed up for a Distance Learning Diploma Course in Interior Design with the world-renowned London based KLC School of Design. During my studies I had the opportunity to implement my new skills on projects around the world, such as in London, Basel and the Caribbean.

Inspiration is all around us as long as you keep your eyes and mind open: Having lived in 7 countries on 3 continents and travelled the world, I got an abundance of inspiration to last me a lifetime. This inspiration may derive from plunging into the Caribbean sea, hiking through the Amazonian rainforest, strolling through a Moroccon souk or exploring a Roman ruin, though it may also be a client’s treasured piece of art that will ignite my creativity. The source of inspiration is infinite and I usually get my best ideas whilst doing yoga, jogging or simply relaxing. Of course I also actively seek inspiration at design shows and learning about new trends and materials.
