There’re people who find out by chance, and that, despite living on the side of the world opposite to where you are, share your ideas and your thoughts innovative and creative. It was what I understood when knowing Simony Silva, an architect of Brazilian origins who lives in the United States for a long time and who works as an interior designer. Our synergy is born from the passion that unites us for travel and the desire to introduce into the projects elements that derive from certain areas of the world that we have visited in our travels. Here is a dynamic and eccentric Traveler Designer.
Tell me about your studies and how you became an interior designer.
“I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the first time I came to the United States I was 17, as a student for cultural exchange, and I didn’t know that one day I would come back here for a long time. After the last year of exchange, I returned to Rio to study architecture, and after graduation I returned to the United States because I had contact with an architectural firm that offered me an internship. I moved and I had the opportunity to work with various types of companies: I worked with construction companies, as an art teacher in a museum, in the graphic sector, with architects, and at the end I decided that the best thing for me was to start my business and plan the life I wanted to live. Today I work mainly with interior design, which is not only interior design, but also decoration, walls, structures, finishes… I can develop floor plans, select materials and manage a building site during the renovation of a house. It’s a very demanding type of work, in which you have to have the attention turned on every minute, we must have a good experience to know what works and what does not. It’s challenging, but I love every minute!”
How do your travels influence your choices in Interior Design?
“Traveling is my other passion and I use it to inspire me with new ideas. When I visit a new world and a new culture, I always pay attention to how people build their buildings and their homes. I learn new aesthetics, new colors, new plots, new proportions, I learn to think outside the box. The whole world is full of great ideas on design and art, why should we simply repeat what we see around us? Why we shouldn’t try to incorporate new kinds of beauty into our lives? Here’s what I bring to my customers, fresh ideas that I collect from my travels. Every year I plan from 6 to 8 trips all over the world. I would like to travel more, but I can’t forget the time I have to dedicate to my projects. When I travel, i share on social media all my experience, I like to take viewers with me and make them part of it all. In the same way with my work, I constantly share constructions and renovations step by step; I think people like to learn how to design and build a house even if they are not planning one.”
What kind of clientele do you propose?
“My clientele is very selected: knows the value of my work, which means that they get more from me than what is the cost for my services. They are people who have followed my work on Facebook, or people who have been influenced by customers of the past, they are people who have heard great things about me. I don’t have to pursue them, they find me.”
How do you develop an Interior Design project?
“First I start with the layout and I design the layout based on ergonomics, the functionality of the spaces; it must be very functional before aesthetically pleasing. Once this part is completed, I really have to think about the customer. I pay attention to what they want, how they live their family life, how they exploit the house; I also pay attention to what their soul is telling me. I can read them, capture what they love and what they need. Then the inspiration goes into action: I start thinking about design elements that would make the space unique and beautiful. I think everyone deserves a nice space to live and work, a place that will help them grow, be happy, feel safe, feel relaxed or energized according to their needs. I really belive that as a designer we have the power to improve people’s lives, both physically and spiritually. “
How do you include the elements of a trip in your projects?
“I incorporate elements of travel into my design and I let those elements present themselves spontaneously. For some customers it might be an interesting tile I saw in France, or it could be a window used in a bar in England, or a wooden ceiling I saw from some part in Mexico, a lamp I found in Brazil. Who knows?! I only know that the more I see the world, the happier I am. Happier I’ll be the more creative I’ll be; so in the end this is what makes my design different and that’s what people want when they hire a professional. They want their house to be wonderful!”
What kind of style defines you most?
“What I call “Modern Rustic“, which has open spaces where Living Room and Kitchen are integrated and the whole space functions as an entertainment area. The kitchen is very functional and modern, but still has a rustic look thanks to wooden materials, stall doors for the pantry, live-edge shelves on the wall, dark bronze finishes on the taps and lampshades. The inspiration for this style comes from places where I lived or traveled, most likely from the farmhouses I have seen in Latin America where rustic beams and rough iron are used. I also have a very strong bond with the tiles and I find them a great way to express the style of the houses. The details that give life to a good project!”
