Interior design is a reflection of the human psyche
-paula madrid
Paula Madrid has two passions in life: psychology and interior design. She obtained her doctoral degree in clinical psychology in 2001 and runs a successful part-time private practice in New York City. Parallel to this endeavor, Paula has worked as an interior designer and has done so for the past seven years.Her two passions go hand in hand and are in many ways complementary. Whenever possible she uses observational and interview methods derived from psychological research to find out how people really use space. This is particularly important in the design of medical interiors and other projects where people are under high levels of stress, but also in the private sphere,such as residential homes. Her knowledge of psychology and human behavior enables her to truly understand a client’s wishes and needs. In turn, her wealth of design knowledge and expertise allows her to create spaces, which are ultimately beautiful, supremely functional, and a true reflection of each client’s needs and wishes.
