Caribbean Interior Design
Timeless Tropical Getaways with a Sense of Place
Whether you’re looking to create your ultimate Caribbean getaway, retirement home or need to furnish your Caribbean investment property, Global Inspirations Design can help you turn your Caribbean vacation home into a dream home away from home everyone’s raving about.
Award-winning Interior Designer and founder of Global Inspirations Design, Simone has lived and worked on several Caribbean islands for more than 8 years, spanning over 3 decades. She initiated both, her first career in the hospitality industry and her second career in interior design in what she calls “my favourite part of the world.” Essentially, it was her first design project, a tropical chic Villa Design in the British Virgin Islands, for which she won the ‘Most Stylish Kitchen in the Virgin Islands Design Award’ that made her turn her passion for interior design into a career.
Most importantly, Simone has a deep understanding of the Caribbean culture and lifestyle, as well as a great appreciation for its people, which help her navigate the challenges that come with furnishing a home in the Caribbean.
Are you ready to turn your property into a tropical island retreat?
“Simone strived to truly understand our personal preferences, while at the same time strategically interjecting her own experience and expertise into our project. While furnishing a home in another country is inherently a difficult process, Simone’s expertise and personality allowed our project to move forward in an enjoyable and successful manner. Simone diligently tracked our budget and made every attempt to stay budget neutral. What she did is amazing and it made us very happy.”

Why choose Global Inspirations Design for your Caribbean Project?
Combining her Italian roots, her Swiss upbringing, her international exposure of living in 7 countries on 3 continents, her unique connection to the Caribbean with her passion for interior design, Simone brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table to ensure the success of your project. She thinks on her feet and quickly adapts to challenges (even if that means managing a Caribbean design project remotely during a global pandemic.) One of her life mottos ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’ has proven crucial during times of adversity again and again.
Working with Global Inspirations Design for your Caribbean Interior Design project means a headache and hassle-free experience for you. Furnishing a home from scratch in the Caribbean involves a lot of logistics, as nearly everything needs to be purchased overseas and shipped to the islands. Simone works with an extensive global network of manufacturers, vendors and artisans to source furniture and materials from. For her Caribbean projects she’ll usually spend some time sourcing in Florida and Puerto Rico either on her own or together with the client. At the same time, she also likes to involve local partners, trade and artisans wherever possible.
“Caribbean interiors should be as light and airy as an ocean’s breeze.”
Blending Island Charms with Sophisticated Island Living
Fusing her extensive background of working in boutique and luxury hotels across the globe, Simone truly understands the needs of the discerning traveller and how to provide the ultimate guest experience. At the same time, she has an in-depth understanding of the most suited styles and materials for your island property. She strongly believes that Caribbean interiors should not compete with, but complement their beautiful surroundings.
Her approach to island style interior design is about timeless understated luxury and stylish comfort, also known as barefoot luxury. This is not to say, that she doesn’t add an element of surprise or wow factor to the space creating those desirable hashtag insta-moments.
Simone works on-site as well as remotely, but usually a combination of both. She handles all the logistics, including sourcing, purchasing, shipping, delivery, overseeing installation and final styling.
