'I like a home to be exceptionally livable and totally memorable. My designs are classically rooted - I favor natural materials, traditional elements and I like to include a curated selection of antiques and vintage furnishings. I introduce globally sourced finishes, design elements and decor to give an unexpected edge to the design narrative that feels effortless and chic.'

I was born and raised in Italy but moved countless times from when I was a little girl to well into my adult life. I lived in Europe, the US and even spent a couple of years in the Middle East.
I feel a strong sense of belonging to the southern region of Puglia, in Italy, where I was born and spent most of my summers, and Rome where I lived the longest during my young adult years and where most of my family still resides.
My lifestyle and experiences gave me a great appreciation for the value of home and honed my sensibility toward aesthetics. Decorating our homes became a form of self expression, a way to shape and honor our family life and pure exploration of the visual delight.
Along the way I went back to school for Interior Design and Masseria Chic, in honor of the traditional residences of Puglia, was born in 2015. My Studio is based in Northern Virginia.
