JUSTINA’S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
I believe that good design increases quality of life. I believe in vintage, organic and handmade. I believe in the healing power of plants, good light and fresh air. I believe that objects carry the stories of their makers–so things that are made with love, care and good materials bring those qualities with them where-ever they go. I believe in recycling. I believe in diversity. I believe in creativity. I believe that design can save the world. Decorate wild!
