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 decorate with a curated selection of antiques and vintage items. I introduce globally sourced items and finishes, as well as design elements to give an unexpected edge to the design narrative. It's a way to achieve that 'wow factor' and show our daring side.

I was born and raised in Italy and moved countless times since I was a little girl. I lived in the US, Europe and even spent 2 years in the Middle East.
Growing up I was in contact with the designer routine as I watched my grandmother, an antique dealer and shop owner navigate the task of sourcing one of a kind antique pieces and my mother decorating our houses into memorable homes.
My lifestyle gave me a great appreciation for the value of home and honed my sensibility toward aesthetics while helping me become a 'daring' decorator.
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.
This year marks the start of a new life for my family and I as we are purchasing a home and settling in Northern Virginia.
