With influences ranging from Coco Chanel to Robert Venturi and Tony Duquette, interior designer and founder of 50 for Fifty Noa Santos's style is modern, fearless, and refreshingly lacking in minimalism. Noa's business, 50 for Fifty, charges clients $50 for 50 minutes of personal design consultation, making the possibility of interior design much more accessible to a range of renters and homeowners interested in creating a stylish home.
Noa explains: "50 for Fifty is a chance for me to help young New Yorkers like me who are fighting to make it here. Everyone deserves to love where they live, no matter how much they make and I’m determined to make interior design accessible to those who really need it. Before I started 50 for Fifty, I did some work for a few friends and saw how, by creating a space they loved, their lives changed— they enjoyed coming home, they entertained more, they were more organized. Young New Yorkers have so many challenges to face in this city — creating a home shouldn’t have to be one of them."
Noa recently opened up his home to CasaSugar readers, sharing a sense of his style and some of his tips for creating a vibrant, personal sanctuary, no matter how big or small your decorating budget may be.
