AINO SAARA BOYER
Originally from Finland, Aino Saara spent a decade living in California before recently relocating to Copenhagen, Denmark.
Aino Saara is inspired by quaint spaces around the world, expanses of nature, her family and the design of her motherland. Through the use of earthen colors, textures, and materials, Aino Saara brings in a touch of her Northern Soul and Western Spirit to interiors of homes.
Originally from Scotland, Leigh spent time living and working in Barcelona before putting down roots in California.
With an interest in biophilic design; the practice of using elements that distinctly reflect the natural environment to increase occupant connectivity to it, Leigh aims to create spaces that deepen our relationship with nature.
By incorporating natural elements and textures along with a conscious use of color, Leigh invites a sense of what it means to be home.
