French designer Isabelle Miaja loves transforming spaces in her constant pursuit of evolution. The founder of Miaja Design Group, a Singapore-based interior design firm, works tireless to provide interior consultancy for hotels and resorts across Asia and the South Pacific. She has been doing so for more than 20 years.
Known for her interplay with unique art forms in her design style, Miaja enjoys collecting art and artefacts, which she picks up on her frequent travels. “Each time I travel to a country, I make it a point to go and visit galleries, craftsmen or artisans. I’m always curious,” she said.
Her home is a reflection of this. In her living room alone, artworks and curios from over 25 countries are displayed and thoughtfully curated. Her appreciation for art is natural and runs in the blood: She hails from a family of artists. Her granduncle was a poet and her father, a celebrated jewellery designer.
