YOUR INTERIOR DESIGNERS
Natalie is an accomplished professional interior designer with a savvy business background. Known and loved for her adventurous spirit, Natalie founded Casa Uniqua back in 2013 to share her love of original and unique design. Since then she has made a name for herself in the interior design field, while also building Casa Uniqua into a successful business that gives her the freedom to design her lifestyle as she chooses.
Inspired to pay forward her own knowledge to help others pursue their own dreams of working in interior design, Natalie created Casa Creatives Club as an antidote to underwhelming distance learning providers that lack interaction and community contribution. Knowing first-hand how personal advice and guidance from mentors accelerates learning, Natalie designed the Club to fill the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical experience for those wanting to develop their interior design skillset.
