We’re a mother/daughter interior design and architectural company based in Jerusalem called Patt Interiors. I have been an Interior Designer for the last 25 years. My daughter, Moriah, joined me five years ago when she finished her architectural studies.
I was born in Los Angeles and as a very little girl can remember myself being intrigued by my grandmother’s perfectly decorated home (she worked with an interior decorator). I had an easel in my room and I would draw floor plans of homes for imaginary families. My mother engaged me in choosing my bedroom curtains and paint color and from that moment on, I was hooked!
After studying interior design in Israel (and later in London), I began planning small apartments in Jerusalem. I found that I had a knack for making the most out of small spaces. As my clientele increased, I began designing homes and vacation apartments for people living abroad. My clients were from the US, Gibraltar, South Africa, England, Brazil, Colombia and Canada, and everyone had a different view on design because of their country of origin. I made myself familiar with the needs and wishes of each of my clients to make sure they felt comfortable in their new home away from home. The fact that I grew up in Israel from the age of 14 is very helpful to my clients from abroad. The construction world can be quite daunting and I am able to be a bridge between my clients and the unique building process here in Israel.
