We bring the tropical into the city

To return home after a busy day of work and to find yourself in a personal oasis. A quiet, peaceful, welcoming place with your own personality to call a home. An escape from the city, to dwell in a place of relief, having the feeling of staying in a hotel in Bali, or Hawaii or Brazil, but actually still being inside the cosmopolitan city.

This is our strength that we call “Urban Tropical”, the perfect mix between the city and the vacation spot in one environment – your home.

But not only. Our concept is very effective for hotels and B&B as well, as they are like a second home to some of us. The feelings of being welcomed and that of a home are very valuable when they are applied to offices as well. As there we spend many hours a day, offices must be the places of contentment, too. Or in a shop where one should feel good and welcomed in the shopping experience, or even at restaurants that want to offer comfort food or a sense of relaxation, holidays and good vibes.

.We will develop an exclusive project, with a unique style formulated with our personal references and tastes, merged with client’s requests.

. We are young and open minded, aiming to find the best solutions for your home in a dynamic and fast way.

. The relationship is face-to-face with the owners of the firm, i.e. Mariana and Fanni will personally take care of the communication, as well as of the project development.

. To make the project management more effective, the firm seeks online solutions for viewing the product, even for the products purchase, saving time and money for both the client and the firm. Otherwise, in case the client prefers to have additional personal meetings and to be involved in choosing the solutions in person, the financial proposal would be agreed with a number of external visits. The service is fully customizable, even if the project is in another city or country.

. Attention to the details: We take care of renovations up to the small details that make a home complete, such as assistance in purchasing paintings, bedsheets, candles and objects that complete the experience of a real home.

. As a result, our goal is to transform in detail the places lacking in personality into fresh, relaxing and complete environments, that create a serene atmosphere for both a home, an office or a shop. We reinforce the “Urban Tropical” concept because it is what drives our studio, as a mix between cosmopolitan life and a sense of vacation.
