Breeze Giannasio brings the exacting discipline and rigorous standards from her former career to bear in managing the design process, paying attention to every detail and customizing each project to explore and reflect her clients' needs. Comfort, livability and function ground every design - from there we aim to elevate our clients' expectations of what it means to live well and live fully in an enivironment truly crafted for the individual.
Breeze started her design career at Hickok Cole Architects where she focused on hospitality-inspired multi-family housing projects. Through BGDB Interior Design she has enjoyed a range of work, from sophisticated urban residences to casual seaside retreats. Common to each project is an allegiance to bring out the client's personality in each room. That pursuit inevitably involves an artful integration of architectural elements, a refined color palette, bold silhouettes, a strong sense of scale and proportion, and unerring attention to every detail.
What inspires Breeze? Too many things to count. Inspiration comes from everywhere, from the sunlight streaming through a paned window, the soft hues of a Lanikai sunrise, a glimpse of Central Park, a favorite painting, a historical reference, an unexpected quote. The result of Breeze's circuitous path and her hunger to learn, share, taste, and grow results in timeless interiors with intelligence and depth.
Breeze is a modern-day Renaisance woman with a Harvard Law degree under her belt and 8 years practice as a corporate lawyer. Born and raised in Hawaii, she's globe-trotted her way through her education, work and play and ultimately couldn't resist going back to her passion for design after an established career in law. She garnered a Masters in interior architecture from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington DC with additional training from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Her design sensibilities are influenced by her ceaseless international travel, particularly her time studying interior architecture in Copenhagen and Helsinki.
In her spare time, Breeze is an avid supporter of the arts and serves on the Advisory Board of The Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground, a non-profit formed to retrofit an under-ground streetcar station into a cutting-edge art and design center. She also fundraises for the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative as well as the Washington Project for the Arts.
The work of BGDB Interior Design has been featured in House & Home, Maison & Demeure, Domino, DC Modern Luxury, The Washingtonian, Apartment Therapy, Design Sponge, The Washington Post and many other design/shelter blogs.
