Featured in Boutique Design (2006) as one of the “18 Designers of the Future Generation”, Flavia Portugal is a native Brazilian turned New Yorker since 2000. Together with partner Riccardo Leoni, they formed Flavia Portugal Design after Flavia left a thriving career at a renowned New York interior design firm. Flavia Portugal Design is the culmination of a journey which started at age fourteen, when Flavia redesigned her parents’ house, and later left a prominent career in law to pursue her passion of interior design. Having resided in four countries, Flavia gained valuable experience that provided her with the framework upon which she was able to develop a multicultural lifestyle approach. With clients in the United States, Brazil and Italy, she brings attention to detail, professionalism and a personal touch to all of her projects, and is guided by the principle of ultimate achievement being the creation of a uniquely functional, sophisticated and desired space for each and every client. Flavia has a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honors in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and a Juris Doctor in Law from Brazil with a Specialization in Civil Law.
