About Jo

I am crazy about colors and am passionate about creating spaces that feel as good as they look.
I strongly believe in the importance of studying the influence of colors on our perceptions and behaviors.

Having a father that worked as an interior architect and a mother who knew better than anyone how to lovingly welcome guests in her home, I have always been immersed in the world of decoration and homemaking since I was a child.

In 2006, I moved to Paris to pursue fashion design and since then have worked on numerous styling and interior design projects where my love for forms, textures and colors are brought to life.

As you can imagine, colors take centerstage in my work as a designer and visual storyteller.

When I’m not busy with interiors, I love to travel.
Travel gives my life meaning and discovering new cultures is my favorite way of expanding the color palettes I work with.

Certified in Advanced Colour & Design Methods -
The fundamental Principles of Applied Colour & Design Psychology

There is not a single color in this world that is not made to delight us.
