5 mins with... Miss Mia from Briony Fitzgerald Interior Design

BFID are a bespoke interior design studio that specialise in spatial planning + custom designed hand finished products of the highest quality. Briony Fitzgerald Design brings over 15 years of design experience delivering unique insights into the use and transformation of space.

I had the pleasure of attending design school with Miss Mia and was super excited to hear she was working with BFID.  A joy to deal with, Briony and her staff use colour, texture and widely sourced products + textiles to create unique and beautiful spaces for their clients.

Describe your design aesthetic in 5 words…
Bespoke, beautiful, practical, happy, colourful.

Which bathroom brand are you most likely to specify for your clients?
I would have to say ‘Villeroy & Boch’. The brand is extremely reliable. I use a Subway toilet on every job.

What inspires you to create beautiful spaces?
I love good design, whether it be interior, graphic, fashion or product design. When I see beautiful things, it provokes happiness. That’s what I remember when designing for other people, I want them to feel happy within their new beautiful space.

Who are some international designers/architects that you admire?
I love Kelly Wearstler for her daring and unique style (who everyone copies), Jonathan Adler for his playful and colourful approach to interior and product design, and Christian Liaigre for his sophistication and attention to detail.

If you could design anyone’s bathroom (past or present), whose would it be? And what would you do with it?
Oprah’s, I imagine I would have an amazing budget to play with, so I would use the opportunity to go completely over the top. The famous ‘O’ would be the base of inspiration. I would create a custom ‘O’ shaped bath in the center of the bathroom and than select bathroom fittings (from Candana, of course…) that complement this concept.

What is your favourite bathroom product? Why?
I love the Cult 120 Wall Basin by Studio Bagno; its beautiful to look at with it’s modern, slim profile and clean lines. Its also extremely practical as it has wide surrounds, allowing room for soap, candle, flowers etc.

A big Thank you to Miss Mia and BFID for sharing their insight into beautiful spaces and fabulous bathrooms.
