PASCALE MARIE THERESE
MY DESIGNS ARE COMPOSED FROM A LOVE OF CLASSIC HAUTE DESIGN, LAYERED WITH A MIX OF ETHNIC INFLUENCES THAT VISUALLY STIMULATE ME, FROM INDIAN, AFRICAN, SOUTH WESTERN, ARABIAN AND FOLKLORIC ORIGIN. TOGETHER WITH A NOD TO THE NONCHALANCE OF MY TROPICAL ISLAND UPBRINGING, I HAVE HONED A STYLE I COLLECTIVELY REFER TO AS BEACH BOHEMIAN BOURGEOIS. I'M ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN CREATING INTERIORS BORN OF AND EVOKING EMOTION, I LOVE A ROOM TO INDUCE A SUBTLE CASE OF ENVY, COMFORT AND GLAMOUR ARE ESSENTIAL AND MARRY PERFECTLY WITH THE BBB AESTHETIC. LUST LOVE LIVE ARE MY WATCHWORDS. WHEN I CREATE INTERIORS I WANT TO INITIATE THE INSTANT EMOTIONAL IMPULSE THAT IS LUST, WHICH GROWS INTO A DEEPER AFFECTATION OF LOVE FOR SPACES THAT NURTURE THE WAY WE LIVE
‘Love of beauty and the desire to create it is a primal instinct of man.’

After completing my studies in Barbados and England, I started my working life within a London based boutique PR agency. Over the course of 7 years with the company I established myself as Head of Production and managed the events side of the business. During the final 2 years I worked part time and completed a diploma in Interior Design. I soon realised my passion for working within the competitive London interiors industry and started this new career path with Chelsea based Helen Green Design. This was followed with a move to Pimlico Road to join Lady Vivien Greenock's small team as her design assistant. In 2009 I had the fortunate opportunity to work on my first solo project, the complete refurbishment of a detached 5 bed home in Kent, England. From this project E N V I E I N T E R I O R S was born. As the project came to a close after a year, I was offered the opportunity to join a new interiors retail store in the boho chic neighbourhood, Notting Hill, London, and took on a full time position looking after PR, Marketing, Sales and Design for Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture. After 5 formidable years with Shabby and as of December 2015 I revived E N V I E I N T E R I O R S and now operate as a freelance Interior Designer based in the Middle East.
