About the designer

Simone Aïda Baur is an award winning interior designer and the founder of Global Inspirations Design a full service interior design studio. Simone, who speaks six languages, has specialised in creating tailored spaces with a global aesthetic that express her clients’ personality and tell their stories.

With nearly 10 years experience in the field of design, combined with her past career in the international luxury hospitality industry, she works with successful professionals and doctors, mostly expats, who share her passion for design, travel and other cultures. As she puts it: “Having lived on 3 continents and in 7 countries, I truly understand the power of having a beautiful home that gives you that sense of ‘home‘.” Our homes have a huge impact on our health and wellbeing, which is why Simone has made it her mission to change lives, one room at a time.

Simone has developed her own style, which she refers to as ‘Modern Contemporary with a Touch of Nostalgia’, maintaining an overall contemporary look, but adding an element of surprise. Her global inspirations transpire into her work and she’s been nicknamed the ‘Queen of Turquoise’ for her love of the colour reminiscent of the Caribbean Sea. Simone loves adding a pop of colour, using exquisite materials and is obsessed with texture. In her opinion interior design is all about striking a balance between harmony and contrast. She works with a global network of suppliers and artisans, helping her curate some very unique pieces for her clients. Simone has a great eye for detail and is involved in every aspect of the design process, saving her clients a tremendous amount of time and headaches, whilst creating a home, chalet or tropical vacation retreat for them in a way they never could have achieved on their own. Simone says: “I just love to see the way my client’s eyes light up, when they see their dream home come to life.”



“When we sit in these rooms in our home, every single item that we’re surrounded with sparks joy
and we are very grateful for the way Simone brought that joy into our home and our daily living.
If you are thinking of hiring Simone, my recommendation would be to
ask yourself if you want more joy in your life.”
