Aileen Motto's Profile

About

I am a professionally trained pastry chef having worked in high end restaurants both abroad and in New York City. As a chef, I bring together different flavors and textures in a harmonious way, resulting in a delectable end product. My skill as a chef has transcended into designing and creating beautiful home decor. My vision is much the same when working with different fabrics, trims and accouterments, as when working with food. Bringing it all together with a deliciously, beautiful end result.

I discovered that I had a talent for designing and sewing.

Some people love shoes and others love handbags, but my passion is fabric. Richly colored, luxurious to the touch and beautiful to the eye; I love it all. Yes, it is true that my heart will skip a beat with the mere thought of going to the fabric store. I love envisioning new designs, putting pen to paper, making the first cut and sewing on the last tassel; the combinations are endless.

I am guided by a deep personal desire to help others create a home and space that expresses their personal taste, brings life to their living space and provides them with a feeling of peace and contentment.

All items are designed and handmade by me in my smoke free home. I take the utmost care in creating each unique piece by using only the highest quality fabrics, trims and embellishments.
