We believe in supporting and promoting connections in our community, so we have decided to introduce you to some of the incredible architects and designers we have had the privilege of working with.
Name: Jennifer Angelatos
Where do you work: I own and run Core Interiors. We are a local Canberra interior design studio that offers interior architecture and design services to residential and commercial clients. We have a particular focus on environmental and sustainable design as that has long been a passion of mine!
What did you want to be when you grew up: When I was quite young, I wanted to design shoes and cars, particularly ones that could match! So, I guess you could say I’ve always wanted to be a designer.
Something you have always wanted to learn: I’ve always wanted to learn how to sing. Unfortunately, I wasn’t gifted with musically ability so I don’t think it will happen, I’m self-aware enough to know what I’m good at.
What are you currently listening to / reading: The Power of One [For the second time] & Eco House Book, by Terence Conran
Question you get asked the most at work: “What’s the best way to warm up this space?” is a really common question I get from my Canberra residential clients, given that we have extremely cold winters it’s so important to make a space look and feel (physically) warm. I’m a big fan of natural, earthy looks so I find my clients are always happy when I feature plenty or natural warm wood in a space, it provides lots of texture too.
Favourite part of the job: My clients mean everything to me. I love to learn about their lives and help them find solutions to all their design problems. My clients are what make my job so fun!
