Her aesthetic is inspired by and reflects her experience of having lived in some of the world's most cosmopolitan places.
Fanny undertakes residential and commercial projects in New York City, as well as internationally. Her work has been featured extensively online and in the written design press around the world, and she is currently working on projects in New York City and London.
