About Inez Fino

After having had worked for a couple of years in collaboration with an esteemed Portuguese interior designer, Inez Fino started working as a freelancer in 1996. During her last year with the company, Inez was trusted to help complete some high-end projects such as the Prime Minister's official residence, the palace of São Bento, a boutique hotel, an embassy and a high-profile individuals' home.

At the time this opened Inez up to a world of interiors, suppliers, and contacts that in those days were like finding a needle in a haystack. This enabled Inez to venture out at a very early age, which at that point she would never have imagined.

Heritage

Inez Fino grew up in the United Kingdom. She spent most of her weekends at antique fairs, auctions and visiting castles and palaces with her parents, brother, and sister.

Inez' story doesn't stop there. Inez comes from a long line of traditional families, who up until the Portuguese 25th of April Revolution had some of the most beautiful homes in Portugal and throughout the former Portuguese colonies.

Inez had the opportunity to grow up in these homes such as the Biester Chalet in Sintra and Palacio Ratton in Lisbon, known today as Tribunal Constitucional. They were her great-grandmother's city and weekend homes, which, despite the revolution, were still very up and running until her death, when Inez was 14.

Inez's mother, Verónica Mayer de Carvalho Beja Fino, was one of the first women to take the first ever interior design course in Portugal. Inez has always looked up to her mother, her grandmother, and her great-grandmother, and strived to follow in their footsteps.

Values

Inez' values go way back down a long family line of living in the most beautiful homes with the most lavish lifestyles, with an acute eye for detail.

Our goal is to provide our clients with the exact same level of perfection. With that in mind, Inez brought together a team that shares her love and passion to create unique ambiances for each of our clients.

Process

Inez Fino's work drinks from a strong line of tradition and elegance, blending in eclectic references and styles. Having lived in several countries, Inez develops her creative concepts from her historical background, travels and rich contemporary references, communicating and committing to her clients' needs in design. Inez understands each client, and each space, as unique.

For Inez Fino Interiors, each space can be a canvas; each client has a story. We'd like to invite you to come help us tell yours.
