GHISLAINE VIÑAS

Born in the Netherlands and raised in South Africa, Ghislaine brings a special blend of international sensibility, intuitive style, humor, irony and refreshing enthusiasm to her work. She is driven daily by her passion for interior design and especially by color.  Ghislaine and her team thrive on collaboration and although the backbone of their work is a strong clean refreshing look, they dare to go "off roading" by experimenting with and exploring many areas of design.

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.  Since then she has successfully completed many projects, both commercial and residential, ranging from New York City, including apartments, townhouses, lofts and an art gallery in Chelsea, to offices and homes in Los Angeles, New Jersey, Holland, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

Ghislaine has chosen to keep her office small so her clients can expect a very “hands-on” personal approach as she works through the project.  Ghislaine Viñas Interior Design embarked on their first hospitality project in 2012 and they are currently developing a product line on top of many other exciting design projects.

Ghislaine Viñas Interior Design was awarded the Interior Design Merit Award for Best of Year in the residential category in 2007, 2008 and 2011 and has won the Interior Design Best of Year award in 2010, 2012 and 2014.  In 2007 she won the Pantone "Color Outside the Lines" competition for color use in residential interiors , as well receiving third place in the Electrolux, "The Lived-In Kitchen", design competition and honorable mention in the same competition in 2012.   The firm was awarded the prestigious Benjamin Moore Hue Award in 2010 for their use of color in residential interiors.

Ghislaine has been featured on various TV programs including HGTV, Open House New York and IDTV “Designing New York”.

Ghislaine's work has graced the covers of countless magazines and she has been published worldwide in publications including: Interior Design, The New York Times, New York Magazine, Departures, Frame,  O At Home, Dwell, Elle Decor Japan, England and Mexico as well as Architectural Digest in Russia just to name a few. 

Ghislaine studied interior design at Philadelphia University and moved to New York right after receiving her degree. Ghislaine now lives in New York City with her husband and their two children.
