Job Interior designer

Lives In Munjoy Hill

I began working in Interior Design in 2005. In 2009 I decided on the name Fiore because it means "flower" or "blossom" in Italian. My middle name is Rose and in spite of being in my mid-thirties my father still calls me Rosebud. Fiore philosphy is simple: growing structures into homes. Evolving spaces into havens. Translating my clients' influences and dreams into space that is authentic and unique. Differentiating between consumption and creation.

Portland's brick buildings, random cobblestones, and unique rhythms inspire me. 

Why did you choose Portland? I came to visit family in 2008 to see what the fuss was about and spent one week on Bailey Island. I moved to Portland in 2010.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? The art scene is incredible.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Miyake sushi for lunch, at Rosemont Market on the hill twice a week.
