Tribeca Family Loft in New York designed by Ghislaine Vinas. Ghislaine Vinas loves to use pink and green colors. I love her work she has such an incredible understanding of color and space, it’s no wonder she won Pantone’s “Color Outside the Lines” competition for use of color in residential interiors.Ghislaine Viñas established her interior design studio in 1999, when commissioned to do the complete build-out of a 9,000-sq-ft office/art gallery in the Starrett Lehigh Building in New York’s Chelsea art district. She has successfully completed many projects, both commercial and residential, ranging from New York City projects that include a townhouse in Greenwich Village, lofts in Tribeca, an art gallery in Chelsea, to offices and homes in Los Angeles, New Jersey, Holland, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
Ghislaine’s work has been published in Interior Design Magazine, New York Magazine, Departures, Elements of Living, Frame, and O At Home and many other international magazines. In 2007 she won the Interior Design Best Of Year Merit Award for Best Residential Design. In the same year, she also won the Pantone “Color Outside the Lines” competition for color use for residential interiors , as well receiving third place in the Electrolux – “The lived-in Kitchen” design competition. Ghislaine was invited to design a bedroom in the Cottages and Gardens Showhouse in the Summer of 2007.
Born in the Netherlands and raised in South Africa, Ghislaine brings a special blend of international sensibility, intuitive style, humor and refreshing enthusiasm to her work. She is driven daily by her passion for interior design especially by form and color. “Color excites me. As a child, I would feel a rush of excitement when opening a box of crayons.” Ghislaine studied interior design at Philadelphia University and moved to New York right after receiving her degree. She fell in love with the city after her very first visit and made up her mind call it home. Ghislaine now lives in New York City with her husband and their two young girls.
