Seeking a relaxed lifestyle, Larissa found herself moving abroad to Australia at the end of 2009 and now calls Sydney her second home where she’s had the opportunity to let her design career evolve into a love for styling, creative direction and smaller scale interior design projects where every sense of project management and final results can be achieved. (most recently completing a restaurant re-brand and full design renovation).
