Luca Paganico's Design Portfolio

This jack-of-all-trades loves spaces that are clean and modern with unorthodox touches.

Vegas-Inspired Bedroom

When the client asked for a bedroom inspired by a Las Vegas resort, Luca created this luxurious space decked out with deep purple silk wall coverings and a white upholstered headboard.

Dramatic Lighting

Luca designed a custom chandelier to add glamour to this cosmopolitan condo.

Personal Art

This symmetrical picture wall features photos taken during the clients' favorite vacations.

Media Niche

Custom wallpaper from Italy serves as a backdrop for the sleek black media console and television.

Modern Luxury

This high-rise condo features baked bamboo flooring that runs up the wall for a modern look. Luca painted custom artwork to match the room's color scheme.

The Finishing Touches

Personal photos and colorful accessories in red, black and chrome tie the room together.

Recycled Design

The foot stools in this room are made from recycled fabric, and can double as coffee tables.

Custom Chandelier

Angular, dark wooden trim draws the eye to this room's custom chandelier.

Ceiling Accents

Colorful "ceiling clouds" add architectural interest to the often-forgotten fifth wall.

Recycled Style

Green never looked so good: The bar tops in this restaurant are made from crushed recycled glass with embedded LED lights, and the floor is outfitted with recycled tiles. The soft leather chairs in the waiting area were handmade in Italy.

Green and Glamorous

Luca did a complete overhaul of this restaurant using more than 80 percent green materials. The restaurant is outfitted with LED lights that change color depending on the desired mood.

Custom Artwork

Luca fashioned this custom collection of artwork from recycled glass.

A Place to Lounge

Custom low lighting, built-in gas fireplaces and sleek sofas set the mood in this restaurant lounge.

Custom Lighting

Luca designed these midcentury-inspired pendant lights for the entryway of a warehouse condo.

Contemporary and Classic

An exposed brick wall original to the building adds an element of history to this contemporary orange living room.

Old and New

Time-worn accessories tie together old and new elements in this living room.

Bordeaux Kitchen

The custom paint color used for this Tuscan kitchen was inspired by a hue found on a wine label. Custom pendants illuminate the bar-style island.

Bathroom Focal Point

Luca used recycled glass tiles to create a focal point in this hotel-inspired small bathroom.

Kitchen Overhaul

Luca transformed a dated 1950s kitchen into a modern country space, complete with lighted glass-front cabinets and a stunning glass tile backsplash.

The Jazz Age

This custom mural, inspired by 1920s style, is a focal point in this lounge.
