Valerie Lavine’s work captures each client’s distinctive taste while incorporating her trademark balance of timeless elegance and comfort.
Her signature style reveals a global perspective influenced by her North African roots, French heritage as well as her cosmopolitan professional experience in New York. Her take on design transcends language, culture, trends and fashion. She draws her inspiration from architecture to music to fashion and conceives creative ideas by composing with form, color, patterns, texture, light and scale.
Before launching her own firm Valerie worked under sought-after New York interior designers Peter Marino, Michael Graves, Frank de Biasi, Kyle Wells and Penny Drue Baird. These diverse experiences have widened her knowledge for sources not only in the US but also in Europe and sharpened her skills for architectural detailing.
Because of her versatile approach, whether the project is a century-old cottage in Provence, a barn in Pennsylvania, a Riad in Marrakech or a contemporary apartment in New York, Valerie translates her client's fantasies, while respecting the home’s specific character and history. The result is so logical that it feels as if it has always been there, waiting to be revealed.
Her decision to only accept a limited number of new projects per year ensures a highly personalized and dedicated service to every client.
Her work has been featured in major publications, including Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, Maison Francaise and Art et Decoration Mediterranee.
