My methodology goes beyond simply designing for aesthetic fulfillment. My approach is multi-faceted and layered in a deep reverence for growth during challenging periods and the power of incorporating objects that have meaning.

Hey, I'm Emilia!

I’m celebrated for my humanist design perspective, color and textile expertise, commitment to sustainability and my unique approach to home design. I use symbolism, and storytelling to help clients uncover their true desires for their home.

Prior to designing full-time, I worked alongside nonprofits dedicated to women’s social and economic development in Mexico, Peru, and India. My time learning from these communities inspired a deep connection with the power of color, textile, and fabrics. Throughout my work, there’s a common theme of color to tell stories and illuminate the symbolism in people's lives. 

Emilia Interior Design & Decor is backed by a team of the region’s leading tradeswomen, contractors, artisans, painters, carpenters, architects, and other industry professionals, as well as an international network of vendors and suppliers.

Emilia is the mother of two children (2 & 5) and lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and two kids.
