Lena Lalvani
Bio:

Lena Lalvani shows meticulous attention to detail, combining an eclectic and artistic approach infusing vibrant colors, textures and patterns. Lena's Interior Design approach is focused around curation and bringing together various styles to create something special and unique. She incorporates storytelling with items that have a personal history in order to express the personalities of the people who live in the space. There are no limits. She understands that there shouldn't be any rules to design, just create what's beautiful and comfortable and find what you want to surround yourself with. The only style that really matters is your own.

She specializes in custom paint techniques to enrich and personalize a space. She has an innate sense of space saving and organizational ideas to maximize any home environment to reflect one’s personality and lifestyle.

Based in Tribeca, NYC, Lena has lived in New York City for the past 20 years and before that, in Pacific Palisades, CA and Brussels, Belgium. She has traveled throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia for work in fashion and for personal, and she incorporates her worldly finds, textiles and art in her own home decor, always evolving as her life changes.

She has previously worked in NYC’s Fashion Industry for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Nautica, designing Knitwear/Sweaters. She also paints and sketches and enjoys Photography.
