For Hire

inspired by interiors of the 70s'd 70's interiors images...

I don't know about you, but I adore interior design! For me, interior design comes right after fashion design. You can design interiors just like fashion. I personally like to mix things up and in my professional life a practical approach rules. I just need space and it's all about surfaces. My private space has a lot left to be desired for, as I haven't found my perfect home yet and have therefore not settled on any style. That doesn't mean I can't get inspired.

Years ago, when I traveled to the West Coast from Los Angeles to San Francisco, I had a chance to visit the Madonna Inn, which blew me away! This landmark hotel attraction features 110 themed rooms which are totally decorated 70's style, with names like "Canary Cottage", "Captains Bridge", "Old Mexico", "Rock Solid", they even have an "Edelweiss" room - Just picture it! Another place that comes to mind when I think 70's interiors: Elvis Presley's Graceland Home.

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
