“Why do a house in just one style?” This is a quote of the Spanish designer Isabel Lopez-Quesada. Her words ring true in so many ways. Why classify your home as one breed. Whether modern, traditional, French country, or Spanish colonial, your design doesn’t have to be pigeon holed into one category. Lopez- Quesada skillfully follows her own philosophy in her approach to creating an ambient space.
Her rooms border on contemporary and classic. She picks the perfect splash of color in rooms that are timelessly adorned. I especially admire her ability to transform outdoor spaces into elegant spaces. Abundant boxwood, greenery, and flowing fountains are constants in every garden she creates. Lopez-Quesada is not a name you may recognize right away, but it is one you should know. Her design is remarkably talented, understated, and over the top .
