As you've probably noticed, I draw my inspiration from architecture. I'm also greatly influenced by interior design.
I love the satisfying feeling of being in a beautiful, well-designed room. I love looking through the glossy pages of a magazine (or on Pinterest) and discovering a space that I can imagine myself in - comfortably sipping on a cup of tea while also feeling a refined sense of luxury.
I aim to translate that feeling into my jewelry. Comfortable elegance. Approachable extravagance. Ornate minimalism.
Ornate minimalism is the term I use for my favorite interior design style and it's what I try to emulate in my own jewelry design work. I've also heard this design style called modern baroque, Parisian chic or feminine minimalism. However it's categorized, I admire when designers are able to skillfully walk the line between restraint and opulence.
Here are some images that I find wonderfully inspiring. Can you see the influence of this interior design style in my jewelry?
