Who is the designer?

Corinne about pageWelcome! I am Corinne Kowal the designer behind Emerald Green Interiors.
I am a Madrid based color consultant, and provide decoration services revolving around the use of color.

Trained as a fashion designer, the love of color is something I have carried with me since childhood looking for ways to express and use it. After working a few years in the fashion industry both in New York and Paris, the calling for the world of interiors became too strong and I joined Mis en Demeure a French company producing high-end furniture and decorative items. During the seven years I spent with them I learned from working with architects and decorators and honed my knowledge of the industry’s key players and suppliers.

Emerald Green Interiors saw the light of day in late 2010 in Berlin a year after the birth of my first son. Through the exposure to paint brands like Ressources in Paris, I had realized that there was a real demand for color specialists, as color often appeared to be source of dilemmas and questioning even for some seasoned interior designers.

Shortly after the launch of Emerald Green Interiors, we relocated to Brussels, where from 2011 to 2013 I also worked for the British paint and wallpaper manufacture Farrow & Ball. Aside from providing intensive in-store color consultancy in the showroom, I became their trained in-house color consultant, providing advice to clients in their homes.

At the end of 2013 we relocated once more, this time to Madrid the Spanish capital and I re-launched Emerald Green Interiors locally in February 2014.

I am the mother of two boys born in 2009 and 2013 and wife to the husband that has been my strongest support over the years. German, born and raised in France, I have lived in Paris, New York, Berlin, Brussels and now Madrid. Fluent in English, French and German I provide my services in those three languages while working on bringing my non-existent Spanish up to level. I am also an avid thrift shopper with a predilection for seating furniture and love to source unique pieces for my clients.

I would love to hear from you about your decoration project. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

Kind regards,

Corinne Kowal
Color Consultant and Decorator
