Elena is passionate about Art. «Honesty and openness are the corner stones in Art let alone other fields of creativity. Our hearts are sensitive to sincerity and virtue. Home is where the heart is” – states Elena. The interior of every home is unique. Being an unparalleled reflection of the owner's identity, the interior possesses an exclusive capacity to provide a sense of well-being; harmony with yourself and the world around. I believe that the primary objective of a designer lies in the creation of a personalized interior to meet the individual needs of everyone. It is accepted that with interior design, every last detail is important.
Every item of the interior will produce associations, convey a particular feeling and create a special atmosphere. The stage on which you play the starring role depends to some extent on the choice of everything on that stage. Tastes however differ. My mission is to understand the customers and create their own personal interior design in their own individual space. As every one of us perceives beauty in their own way, I believe that there are no universal schemes, words of advice or recommendations appropriate for all of us. Also, the passage of time plays an important part: our outlook and tastes are constantly changing. It is perfectly feasible to create an elaborate interior which can easily be transformed as one’s tastes change (modern objects can be added without any fundamental alteration). Discovery, understanding and acceptance of oneself are the essence of every design concept, as the home is where the heat is.»
