OWNER, LEAD DESIGNER
Talia has been a creative since she was a child. She grew up in Florida and spent countless hours choreographing dance routines and putting on shows for anyone who would pay attention. This translated into a lot of time creating ideas in her childhood bedroom, in which she was constantly asking her parents for permission to swap the paint color or redo the wallpaper. As clear as her love for design was then, when it came time for college she initially chose a different path. Talia graduated from high school with honors and was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Central Florida where she graduated with a degree in Hospitality Management. While working in the hotel industry, she started to notice that the spaces where she was working lacked good design. One day she had the opportunity to meet the team responsible for redesigning the lobby in the hotel where she was employed, and as they say, a lightbulb went off. She knew in that moment she needed to pivot and focus her creative energy on hospitality design, so she packed up what she could and moved to Los Angeles to pursue an Interior Design degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandizing. While studying for her degree, Talia got super deep into her yoga practice and fell in love with the mindfulness that it brought into her life, which quickly began to overflow organically into her design projects. Today, Talia's main focus is designing mindfully for both residential and commercial clients to help to create spaces that are equally as beautiful as they are beneficial to enhancing client's lives. Her work has been featured in Harper's Bazaar, Architectural Digest, Real Simple and the Homepolish Magazine.
