When it comes to renovating, luxury high-rise apartments and historic homes have a lot in common with private homes. But the urban environment and lifestyle require a slightly different approach to home design. The interaction between city life outside and your home's interior, the unique story or history of the home and the urban view are all important elements to consider when designing an apartment in the city. But what's most important is working with an interior designer who can make you feel at home even before your home is completed!
Luxury private homes or villas need a design approach that implements the highest quality and sophistication into every detail while also considering the peace and quiet of the home's surroundings. Whether you have unusual hobbies or worldly collections that require special attention, you love to entertain and impress guests, or your busy lifestyle takes you around the world; we will help turn your private home or villa into a palace of sophistication that reflects your tastes, travels and hobbies. Your designer should bring indepth knowledge in subjects such as art, archeology, rare collectibles, and world cultures.
We offer home styling design to change the look and feel of your home without needing to make any architectural changes. This process involves the re-evaluation of elements in the space such as color, furniture, light fixtures, curtains, etc. to achieve quick results without the hassle and costs associated with renovation.
The right design of your investment property, whether it's for rent or for sale, can bring you a significantly higher yield. We will help you grow your investment with renovations such as flooring, painting and kitchen redesign along with a strategic re-layout of rooms.
Plain walls are perhaps the most dominant physical feature of any home or office, yet they are not given the attention they deserve in the design process. Using our vast experience in the visual arts, we take a unique approach to wall design. We are expertise in both art and architectural design with regard to texture, color, shelving, windows, doorways, lighting and shading, curtains, art selection and suspension, and how to create harmony and intrigue in your living and working spaces. Artistic wall design is for the final stages of the design process, upgrading a space, or for people who would like help designing walls with either existing art or art they would like to purchase.

Our goals are to enhance and improve your office environment, increase worker productivity and create a lasting impression among customers and partners.
I ran "Mishkenot Sha'ananim," a guesthouse for artists and intellectuals in Jerusalem, for a number of years and understand both what tourists expect and the reality of running such a business in a competitive market. Guesthouse interior design requires the right balance between aesthetics, practicality and budget. While creating a cozy, inviting atmosphere, you should also highlight your space's uniqueness. And for extra competitive advantage, you can include amenities such as a fireplace, Jacuzzi, high-end appliances, and relaxing areas with low, comfortable, casual seating.
The bookstore and gift shop at the Israel Museum was first developed by Estee-Du-nour. It was here that she acquired the skill and expertise of designing bookstores, gift shops and other small shops. To successfully design small shop environments, carefully consider the dynamics of sales, product knowledge, the path of the buyer, display techniques, lighting to create interest and increase revenue, and how to encourage repeat customers.
For several decades I worked in the field of cultural recruitment, and reserve a special place in my heart for the arts, artists and consumers of culture, young and old. It is difficult to express one over-arching concept for designing cultural institutions — there are clear differences between libraries, theaters, music venues, dance studios and community centers — but there are common themes that tie each one together: work environment, the way decisions are made, budgets are managed, funds are raised, and schedules are arranged, and the type of scrutiny and criticism reserved for those who have served years in public administration. I under and deeply identify with the goals and practices of cultural institution and their ongoing efforts to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world.
Airbnb has helped popularize short term holiday rentals. Millions of travelers are now taking advantage of the unique experience of staying in a home environment rather than a hotel. This has caused property owners to upgrade or renovate their houses or apartments. These types of renovations are typically done on time and with limited budgets. Therefore we must choose carefully when designing a holiday rental. We want to create a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere, making sure our guests feel like they've gotten their money's worth — and be cost effective.
