5 Questions

WITH ALIZEE

1
What makes a perfect home?

A balance of functionality, aesthetics and individuality. Some people view bespoke, luxury interiors as impractical, particularly if they have children. This is where materiality is so important. There are so many incredible options now from indestructible ceramics to high performance outdoor fabrics that you really don’t need to compromise on either aesthetics of practicality. One of the most important aspects of my job is connecting with my clients and understanding how they live so that we can make their home the most authentic expression of their lifestyle.

Recognizing the emotional impact that our environments can have on us, I gravitate towards clean lines, neutral tones and a harmonious layering of textures that inspire a sense of calm. An open layout that encourages flow and abundant natural light is also key.

2
Where do you find inspiration?

Everything inspires me. The way light move throughout space over the course of the day, a surprising juxtaposition of materials, the stitching of a piece of clothing, an emotional piece of art.

The diversity of our projects also inspires me hugely. No two projects are the same, which means we are constantly being challenged to find new design solutions. After working on our yacht project, I applied the same tricks that I learned from the marine cabinet makers on our other space-constrained projects. I am constantly learning from the expertise of people that we work with, what could be more inspiring than that?

3
With projects all over the world, what made you decide to set up your design studio in Miami?

Miami is experiencing a major cultural evolution. It is simply the most inspirational place to be as a designer right now. The city is evolving so much in terms of people’s tastes and openness to design, and I saw an opportunity to satisfy that thirst. Combined with the magnificence of nature in Miami: the proximity of the ocean, the lush tropical plants, it was incredibly appealing to me. I’m an ocean love, it’s my other passion!

Miami is also a wonderful bridge for several continents. Its location and time zone makes it easy to work simultaneously with the US, Europe and South America, and allows us access to all the wonderful trades and craftmanship that each of those countries have to offer. I love the rich mix of cultural influences and how it is manifested in architecture and design in Miami, particularly the colonial style houses influenced by Caribbean architecture, which have so much character.

In addition to our design studio in Miami, we have a network of project managers in key cities around the world that enable us to maintain total control over our international projects.

4
Who are your influences?

The three Kellys: Hoppen, Wearstler and Behun. Kelly Hoppen for her unfailingly good taste, Kelly Wearstler for her inspiring confidence in her work and Kelly Behun for teaching me that minimalistm done right is neither cold nor boring.

I am also hugely inspired by design pioneer Florence Knoll, whose philosophy of “total design” is the origin of the holistic approach that defines Light On White’s multi-disciplinary design service.

5
How do your life experiences inform your work?

I originally studied painting and photography before going on to do a master’s degree in architecture. My love of art still plays a huge role in my work and I do a lot of sourcing for my clients. Although I encourage them to make decisions on an instinctive, emotional level, it is also important that they understand the relevance of acquiring an original Agostini light or a Sandra Blow painting. I always want my clients to get the most out of the money that they spend and that includes ensuring that they get a good return on their investment when buying art of antiques.
