Award – Tile Design Challenge Winner


As a participant of the Country Floors Design Challenge, I had the honor to win the competition.

I designed a tile that was inspired by the architecture of my region in Brazil, Minas Gerais. Some historical cities as Ouro Preto and Diamantina have amazing neocolonial details, influenced by European designs.


The “Lambrequim” is a sealing detail that is also an spiritual symbol, representing the protection of the home. Their forms can represent lucky, harmony and prosperity.

As a winner, I had a publication at Elle Decor Magazine in July/2016
