This week on WriteSpa’s weekly BlogTalkRadio show:
Whenever I need inspiration for describing a room or house for my characters, I visit interior designer Cristina Hadzi’s site. She takes the concept of “interior design” to a whole new level. I met Cristina when we both lived in Rome, and her awareness of history, culture, style, and the world at large is evident in all her designs. To me, the way she creates ambiance for her clients is so like a storybook illustration. She seems to be able describe the people who live in the house simply through the subtle design of a chair or perceptive selection of the fabric…
Other things to know about Cristina: She is a former producer whose credits include a documentary film of the artist Willem de Kooning, and a special events consultant for Art Against AIDS and institutions such as the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum.
Here’s more bio: “Cristina opened her design firm in 1995 after apprenticeships with leading interior designers such as Robert Currie, Richard Keith Langham, and T. Keller Donovan. Through these professional associations she developed a strong belief in encouraging her clients to realize their own environmental requirements and expertly guides them in finding fluid, functional, and personalized solutions. Her love of juxtaposing periods and styles, unusual color combinations, luxurious fabrics and original materials is balanced with understanding that certain projects call for tailored simplicity and modern elegance as well. Her practice includes private residences in Manhattan, London, and Paris, and summer homes in the Hamptons and Connecticut.”
