Today we’d like to introduce you to Federica Molini.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I’ve always been passionate about antiques, furniture and well put together spaces with vivid colors and patterns. I remember during my college days, I would always try to get shortcuts to make my drive faster into class. By doing so, I came across these thrift stores and antique shops in the middle of nowhere with hidden gems. With the years, I started collecting small objects and furniture pieces but it was not until my husband, and I moved into our home with our two-year-old son Federico that I decided to fully renovate and decorate our space with second-hand furniture.
I began documenting my passion for Arte Boheme in 2016 after constantly hearing from family and friends that I should get into interior design and showcase my work to the public. I never had any experience or a degree as a matter of fact in interior design, but rather art history, so I felt somewhat insecure and uncomfortable in opening up to people with what I had transformed from my daily hobby into my passion. I slowly became more comfortable with my aesthetics and its unique personality. Most importantly, I fell in love in how I was able to transform a room from neutral tones into vibrant ones with much contrast in a congruous way.
Please tell us about your art.
I adore playing and mixing patterns with different hues and texture in a space with the implementation of wooden furniture pieces. My ultimate goal when it comes to designing a space is to give the client not only an ambiance with a lot of personality but adding contrast between colors in a harmonious way.
What do you think about conditions for artists today? Has life become easier or harder for artists in recent years? What can cities like ours do to encourage and help art and artists thrive?
I believe artists, especially in this city, have a non-stop flow of inspiration due to the fast development of the city and its cultural diversity. The merging of all these different cultures can definitely help any submerging artist find inspiration in a day to day basis.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
