Catherine C. GHAZAL, French national, has spent the better part of her life between France, the Emirates and Lebanon, but above all, she is a citizen of the world. She ventured into the domain of decoration thanks to the many houses she had to renovate, furnish and decorate in all the countries she had lived in around the world (Paris, Dubai, Fontainebleau, Beirut, Mauritius, La Reunion,)
Her style besides being casual yet refined, reflects her vision of a certain "art de vivre", her way of living, yet always respecting the client's lifestyle and needs. It blends the indoors with the outdoors, the space and the structure, the culture and nature. She stresses the use of natural elements and basic rough materials always in contrast with more sophisticated ones, to create get a warm, functional and comfortable space. "The beauty of imperfection", is one of her leitmotivs. She particularly appreciates the touch of craftsmanship in any work produced and in her opinion the imperfections of the human hand provide depth and character to any material. The result is a design refined, yet warm, resolutely modern yet comfortable, simple yet chic, creating an all encompassing space for her clients.
She set up her own interior decorating office in 2011, and has since decorated houses, chalets, apartments and sea shore villas, in collaboration with architects, or directly with the client guiding them through the creational process. (implementation plan, evaluation of space, coordination of materials/colors, shades.…).
