Francis Lanuza has now opened his interior design studio based in Limerick.
With a degree in architecture, being an artist and milliner he is a welcome addition to the interior design scene for those who stare at Facebook and Pintrest interior design photos all day long at the office on their PC when they possibly should be doing accounts or answering a few emails.
We can dream.....
Francis graduated cum laude as an an architect, and has since worked in a world Top 100 architectural firm, as well as in the Brussels EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Asian) innovation hub of one the world's leading brands. He is also a visual artist (with commissions for the HSE), interior and graphic designer, and creates fashion jewellery and millinery. 'Art and design', he says, 'can be very healing and restorative, and will always tell a story' - and this is part of his creative ethos.
He can design a whole house interior or just a room. Here an example of one of his mood boards. This is a bohemian themed room interior design example.
Unique Interior 3D Designs
One of the skills he has that will set him apart from other interior designers is his ability to do designs in 3D. Yes, he can actually walk you around your house in 3D so you can see exactly what it will look like without even a lick of paint from the new design. We will not be able to display that yet but will upload a YouTube video later of that.
Neptune Kitchen Designer
He is one of a handful of people trained by Neptune at their Head Office in the UK for all their specific ways of project management with reference to kitchen design for their brand. Email for details about this. He can work on a design for you with their stores here or in the UK. He can do the design with you and you can take that to the store or he could manage the project for you.
Office Interior Designer - Work From Home
With his international experience he is well placed to work with people who need office design. Francis said,' Here in this case study, I aimed to address all the points I've raised, plus be able to make a interesting, practical design while adding touches of texture (such as in the warmth of the rug, the wood and the wicker) and colour accents. And what's more, this fits a very tight space of 3 x 1.4 mts, and on a budget (and can be ordered online) courtesy of Jysk.' This is welcome and helpful new for those looking to now to work from home and need help in terms of office design. He can also do restaurant interior design as he has had a client in Cork that he also did their branding.
