valentina interiors is a London-based interior design firm created by Valentina Pennazio.
Valentina’s international background influences her vision. She was born and grew up in Italy but she has lived in the UK since 1997. She is strongly influenced by Italian design, constantly seeking the latest trends and can easily source Italian products for her UK clients.
Valentina studied interior design at St Martin’s College and Chelsea College of Arts and Design. After working with two Italian architects with an established studio in London, she set up her own interior design firm. Before working as Interior Designer Valentina had a successful career in Investment Banking. After 10 years in this sector, she decided it was time for a radical change to realise her dream of studying interior architecture, exploring design techniques and creating beautiful interiors. But her previous experience in Investment Banking has given her strong skills in project and financial management that are essential when dealing with a renovation project. Valentina’s inspirations come from interpreting the clients’ personality and desires to create a totally bespoke interior that fits the existing architecture. She has a particular vision for the ultimate home which is elegant and innovative but does not interfere with core ideas of comfort and functionality.
Valentina is an Associate of the British Institute of Interior Design. The BIID was set up to support interior design professionals and encourages excellence in design and high standards of professional practice
