Introducing this week’s Designer Friday, LuxySpace.
In each of LuxySpace’s designs, they make it a priority to include custom floral arrangements. They believe that having plant life in your home can truly enhance not only your mental health, but also your physical well-being.
Andrew Joseph: If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
Christina Kaz: An eagle. They are free and soar peacefully in the blue sky- anywhere in the world. Poised, powerful and beautiful.
Andrew: Describe your design style as if you were explaining it to someone who cannot see.
Lilit and Christina: With an intensive discovery process, we uncover the clientele’s desired lifestyle and passions. Our signature style is modern, classic, elegant and timeless. We are inspired by clean lines, high-end décor, and natural hues. As we like to say, The goal is not merely to invent a beautiful atmosphere…it is to establish an elevated existence.
Andrew: What’s inspiring you in life (in the industry) right now?
Christina: Today, our nation has a lot of varying perspectives on culture, religion, and politics. At the same time, there is a nice movement of incorporating all of our super personal views in our interior and lifestyle. It’s inspiring to incorporate a client’s subjective choices into a positive interpretation that’s not only unifying, it’s healing and inspiring.

Andrew: What’s your design pet peeve?
Lilit and Christina: Excessive clutter. It is usually due to lack of experience and fear of not having enough. When you have the right pieces with the correct scale and proportion you don’t need too many things, just the right items in the right places.
By keeping the environment in mind, LuxySpace wanted to incorporate a friendly visitor in this space: the Heron in this dining room. She’s situated under a classic chandelier which included metal chains on the perimeter, anchoring the room.
