Hello & Welcome!

I’m Renata Lessa Bastos, a residential interior designer based in Miami, Florida.

I own a boutique design firm by the name of Trace Design Studio.

This blog preceded the Studio and was originally a place to document and share my findings about art, design and architecture.

Today it continues to serve this purpose but is also a place for me to share what is currently driving my work, the questions I’m pondering & the research I’m doing behind the scenes.

In sharing this I hope to provide (& obtain) some insight in to my own process and that others might also find some interest and value in the content & possibly connect.

If you’d like to get in touch, you can find me at: renata@tracedesignstudio.com
