My Story

 

 

Global Inspirations Design is more than a name, it tells my story… Growing up in an artistic family, creativity has always been part of my life. Despite my desire to decorate and design homes from a young age (I regularly changed the layout and décor of my bedroom), I also had a strong urge to travel and explore the world. This is how I first studied at the Swiss School of Tourism and pursued a career in the global hotel industry. Working for hotel brands such as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and Hyatt had me moving from the Caribbean to the Middle East and back to Europe. I have moved 25 times and always made sure my home was my sanctuary, regardless of the time I would spend in any one place. Having a place that truly felt like a ‘home’ was crucial for me to be able to go out into the world and be my best possible self.

During those years I also traveled extensively for leisure and for business to more than 50 countries. Over the years I had the opportunity to stay at countless luxury, boutique and design hotels, such as The Carlyle in New York, Las Ventanas Los Cabos, Park Hyatt Milan and One & Only Royal Mirage to name a few. This soon made me realise that I didn’t just want to enjoy beautiful spaces, but actually create them. So I decided to venture into the unknown and enrolled for a Diploma Course in Interior Design with the world-renowned London based KLC School of Design.

Whilst studying I was given the opportunity to design an entire villa in the British Virgin Islands, where I was living at the time and ended up winning ‘The Most Stylish Kitchen in the Virgin Islands’ Design Award for it. I then joined Vitra at their headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, where I learned about design classics, the process of product design and furniture manufacturing. In early 2014 I took the leap and launched Global Inspirations Design.

In the meantime, I have designed and transformed many homes and have realised bathroom and kitchen renovation projects all over Switzerland, France, London and in the Caribbean.

I continuously seek inspiration in nature, whilst travelling or by attending design shows, such as Milan Design Week. This allows me to keep up with the latest interior design trends, discover new suppliers and products from across the globe and also learn about the most recent innovations in the design industry.

The desire to marry my experience and love for hotels with my passion for interior design made me launch my blog, where I write about some of the most beautiful and unique hotels in Switzerland and beyond and where I share my inspirations, thoughts and insights about interior design from all over the world. Having received several nominations and blog awards, keeps me motivated to continue writing for my readers across the globe.
