A normal day, a normal life
In the creation process one of the big questions is always where does the inspiration comes from. According to Giulia “Inspiration is everywhere in daily life. When you look for an idea, it can be found anywhere.” A normal day in her life depends on the project she is in charge of. It normally involves collaborating with the client, looking at an idea, sketching, finding solutions with the help of the technical staff, planning, and finally executing it.
When it comes to finding ideas, for Giulia it’s always important to be in contact with her environment, “I like to find a simple style but never the same one, it changes depending the project and evolves with time. The importance is for it to be useful, functional and practical.”
When it comes to the most exciting project Giulia has worked on, her answer once again brings us to an element of daily life. She explained to us that her home has been her most challenging project.
“You discover that the most difficult and exigent client is yourself.”
She also described for us what style you will find if you visit her home : “Simple, very spacious and with no barriers.”
For Giulia, being that she is from the Mediterranean, the kitchen is her favorite room, “It is the meeting point in the house, where everything is discussed.”
CarpetVista Design competition
Giulia Sola is without a doubt a very talented designer. We got the chance to discover her through her participation in our Design Competition. Her carpets give a very delicate feeling of stillness and balance which led to her being one of our winners.
She entered five different carpet designs, varying in sensation, but all connected to natural themes. Each carpet is associated to a particular material: Water, Earth, Fog, Ice, Sand. The idea behind her designs was to evoke, through a tactile and visual feeling, a landscape or a personal souvenir.
If you are interested in design or have been inspired by Giulia’s story then we encourage you to participate in our 6th annual CarpetVista Design Competition. The winning designs will be produced in a limited edition and sold exclusively on CarpetVista. For more information click here
