INSPIRATION

In his early days as a decorator, Ferdi was tempted to incorporate in his own home various elements of every style he encountered. Now he simply plays with different styles in the homes in which he works for his decorating company, PULSE Creative Concept Decorators. His own apartment, though, is understated, a living gallery exhibiting the things he loves. Ferdi has creative fun here, too but there is an ease and simplicity to the approach. Although it is artistic, the space is not about show but has been designed to be lived and enjoyed. And that’s Ferdi’s advice to clients: “Choose styles that suit your way of living: a lifestyle that reveals something about the truth of yourself, as opposed to a show-off space that comes straight from some international glossy magazine, but that might not suit your personality, or that is just not comfortable to life in.”
