Andrea D’Cruz has worked in the interior design industry for over 20 years and has now risen to become the director of D’Cruz Design. Her design ethos is about the choreography of decorative elements within a space, creating meaningful and purposeful spaces with a unique and individual aesthetic. In this sit down with the talented designer, Fabio Fanuli meets with Andrea and asks a few questions about interior design and decorating in Australia.
Fabio: What design trends have been the best and the worst over the course of the years in your opinion?
Andrea D’Cruz: The best trends in my opinion are the ones that even though they were created some time ago, still maintain a validity and relevance of style and function today.
Definitely the over use of patternisation and bold statements, have been the worst. Everything in the space screams for attention.
I believe in investing in quality pieces that you love and can treasure forever. I’m not a great believer in trends due to their connotations of a transient nature.
