Our collector’s luxury and design magazine wants to offer something unexpectable ! A teaser from one of the most interesting interviews of the second edition of Coveted! It is certain that you can’t miss it, so check out the highlights here. We will talk with a very talented woman who is creating modern spaces and decorating them in a very special and original way. We think about Amy Lau, the interior designer. This edition we will get answers to some very important questions for example, what are her inspirations? Her favorite project? Also, how would she describe her work style? You will find there all there is to know about the work of this stunning woman. Let’s take a look :
COVETED: Do you have a favorite project or a favorite story about one of your projects?
Amy Lau: It was inspiring and exciting to work on a private residence in Chicago – the client is a dance choreographer who regularly entertains and hosts parties in their living room, which doubles as a 250-person ballroom. I imagined these lively events taking place in Van Gogh’s Starry Night come to life, with guests mingling and music floating through a scene of deep, seductive shades of blue punctuated with sparkling accents. The abstract hand knotted wool and silk rug and hand-embroidered Lauren Saunders pillows paint a celestial scene, and the Claire Falkenstein bronze sculpture floating above the sofa captures the imagination with welded copper, brass, and shimmering glass.
COVETED: All artists need some inspiration to work, and interior designers are artists too. So, what or who really inspires you?
AL: Primarily, I look to nature to be inspired – I find incredible color palettes by observing the subtle change from blue to green on a bird’s wing, or the intricate detailed pattern on a butterfly. I am an avid scuba-diver so I also love the unexpected color combinations in schools of fish, coral reefs, and the sandy beach towns I visit to pursue this hobby. Diverse cultures inspire me – from Japan to Turkey, Mexico to Saudi Arabia – each has a story to tell and a wealth of history, tradition, and artistic technique to explore and incorporate in my work.
