Interior design is such an important part of what I do. People’s lives and personalities, for the most part, are not beige and their interior design should not be. And because “Lifestyle” is used either as a noun or an adverb and I wanted something dynamic and fluid, I created my own verb and called my company “Lifestyling” and that includes interior design and art. It has been a privilege and a dream to be allowed in my clients’ homes to do their interior design. I really get to know what my clients love and want and I’m always willing to go the extra mile for them, or take a plane to pick a piece up in Paris or in Mexico City, if that is what they want in order to complete their interior design. I’m happy to meet with anonymous graffiti artists in the middle of the night to commission pieces for my clients or negotiate on the phone with furniture dealers in Ankara at 6:00 in the morning if necessary so that the interior design looks the best it can be.
Interior design is art, much more than a science. Life is not a box limited by four sides, we don’t live in compartmentalized areas, and people’s interior design should not be different either. I truly feel a great sense of accomplishment every time I finish an interior design project. And even more so when interior design magazines decide to publish a project of mine. I love my interior design clients because they entrust me with their most important possession: their homes. Throughout the life of “Lifestyling” I’ve had several extraordinary moments and milestones that have given me the impulse to be more creative and to enhance the experience that I give to my clients when I work in partnership with them for their interior design projects. I like interior design that mixes high and low, interior design that makes people happy, interior design that transcends.
