For more than two decades, Andrea has creatively applied classic principles of design to serene, sophisticated spaces throughout the country and abroad. “My aesthetic embraces clean lines, simple shapes, subtle accents in color and texture, and attention to detail,” she says. “It is a style inspired by each new project. I love the journey of discovery in designing my client’s spaces while respecting their personal vision, lifestyle, and diverse needs.”
Just as her mindfully created interior environments are cohesive, unique and classic, Andrea’s own personal style is marked by unity: she blends contemporary elegance and eclectic, cultural pieces. “My closet is mostly full of timeless, constructed clothing,” she says. “I make my statement with jewelry or accessories.”
Fittingly enough, prior to joining Cantoni in 1995, Andrea earned a fine arts degree in jewelry. She has since continued to pursue mixed mediums of art, photography and performance, while remaining active in the Houston art community.
She is regularly inspired by study and travel, and by the fresh, modern approach Cantoni takes toward design. “We have incredible, globally inspired products,” she says. “Designing with an extensive variety makes what I do even more exciting every day.”
