Welcome to Angelo on design. I am so fortunate to be able to share what I have learned during my 21 years as a professional designer in the USA since leaving Adelaide, Australia in 1996.
I have had plenty of high and lows moments, struggles, successes, and just pure luck scenarios while living in Chicago, New York City, and now North Carolina. My desire as a designer is the constant need to create a story and to discover the best products and materials to define my views.
My philosophies and perspectives in interior design are based upon my upbringing as a first generation Italian, as an Australian, my education in Sport Science and Interior Architecture, my work experiences in the USA, and my role as a husband and a father.
I have completed interior projects in almost every category, which has developed my intuition in evaluating human behavior and reactions to an interior. This a strength of mine that allows me to communicate ideas and select the best solutions.
We all have opinions influenced by memories from our past. What looks good to you is an objective view which is why the design industry has an abundance of styles and trends. Angelo on design is a source to guide your selections from the furniture markets and current trends to help you articulate your story or your clients.
Sometimes, there are occasions when a space feels right or reflects a particular room you may have been in before. This is when you have tapped into your memory, which triggers a sense of belonging and purpose. The art of design is not to follow a trend but to create your own with the influence of others.
Angelo on design can be a source to build that “trigger point” for you or your client. I will connect you to the opinions of professional designers, identify market trends around the world, and get a glimpse of outstanding styles in residential, hospitality, and workplace environments. Also, my connections to the Australian and New Zealand design industry will introduce fresh new furniture designers and artists that have yet to reach the US shores.
It is my role as a designer and blogger to express my version of the true meaning of balance, harmony, rhythm, contrast, emphasis, unity, pattern, color, and space. Here’s to new adventures and living the dream!
