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 and trends. She draws her inspiration from travels, architecture, music or 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 and Frank de Biasi. 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 eclectic taste and 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 is commited to translate her client's fantasies, while respecting the home’s specific character and history and the end result is always completely tailored.
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.
