Cristina Carulla is one of the most influential interior designers in Spain.
After studying at the Parsons design school in New York and then working with Lázaro Rosa-Violán, Cristina founded her own studio in 2015 with the premise of offering a tailor-made service in which authenticity, elegance and warmth are the cornerstones from which each project is approached.
The studio is currently carrying out several projects, from the new Marriott Authograph or a restaurant for Rafa Zafra, both in Madrid, the conversion of an old factory in Poblenou (Barcelona), an apartment in Brera (Milan) and a house in Budapest.
