For 23 years, I am the owner of Dio-olamot design studio
that operates from our home. Home is wherever I can create with people I love and just be me 2. Painting
and art are passions of mine since childhood 3.
Hebrew is my native language although I write my blog VIC
in english 4.
My iPad wall paper is a photo of Claudio and me. Claudio is my partner in business and life. My iPad is always with me. I digitally draw on it and love listening to podcasts on various subjects when I paint or when I cook 5.
We have 2 grown children 6.
I love the smell of coffee, I love taking a few coffee breaks along my day 7.
Books, books and more books! Although I am a designer, I would be happy if all books had blank covers 8.
I'm a romantic, wild flowers, and gardens excite me 9.
I’m drawn to old photographs and childhood memories 10.
I’m always cold, and must have a warm shawl nearby 11.
I recharge at a little house in south Crete. There, on the beach I collect the most beautiful stones 12.
The color white calms me, I prefer white towels, white sheets, white T-shirts 13.
I screen print on used fabrics, bedsheets, table covers or clothes (preferably white), and I love photographing them as they hang to dry. I find their movement enchanting 14.
I love creating color palettes of things I see around me 15.
A full cookie jar gives me a homey feeling and reminds me of my grandmother Fira 16.
Rooms that have been lived in and time-aged objects call me on to tell their stories 17.
Avocado is one of my favourite fruits 18.
I enjoy home-made food and slow living 19.
I don't care for sets, I love unique beautiful dishes 20.
After all I've revealed here, I am still a very private (even a little shy) person
