Meet Julie Ferreri.
Corsica local, architect and Faithfull Girl Julie Ferreri gives us a glimpse into her world, her business and her home life in Corsica.
“What do you do for work and how did you get started in the industry? ”
I'm an architect based in Corsica. I studied architecture for 5 years in between France & Italy, and have spent 5 more years working in an architect agency, In recently decided to launch my own business, and I’m really thrilled by this new project. In parallel, I’ve been creating content on Instagram for 2 years. I used to share picture of my daily life, and one day one of my instagram post went kind of viral. Since then, many projects came up.
“How would you describe the design aesthetic of your home in Corsica, France?”
I have trouble fitting into a box, whether in fashion or in architecture. I see my interior as an assembly of pieces and colors that I love and which, luckily, come together to form my own style. If I had to sum up my design aesthetic in a very few words, I’d say organic and colorful!
“Where do you source your inspiration? ”
I find a lot of inspiration on instagram, also in real life and in magazines. But I get inspired kind of rashly. Sometimes I just see something, instantly love it and try to re-create it in my own way.
“Your favourite local travel destinations around France: ”
Provence! It’s located in the South-East of France. My grandmother lives there in Vaucluse. I used to spend a lot of time there when I was younger. Getting so many memories there makes me want to go back there every time I can.
“A must do, see and eat for those who haven’t yet visited Corsica:”
You have to do do a boat trip to le Désert des Agriates. I've spent all my Summers there since I’m born. You should definitely discover see the cliffs of Bonifacio - a city located at the very South of Corsica. If you spend time in Ajaccio, be sure to get to Le Papacionu. It’s a local Pizzeria. It’s obviously not a Corsican speciality, but their pizza definitely worth it!
“How would you describe your own fashion style?”
I like to wear simple & comfy outfits on a daily basis. I love classic but iconic pieces but also I’m also a big fan of colorful outfits with refreshing prints and shapes. I can be a bit eclectic. I can jump from a simple blue jean, white shirt combo to a puffed sleeves pastel dress.
“Three wardrobe staples you couldn’t live without:”
White tank top, straight high waisted jeans and a blazer
“What was the highlight of your summer?”
Like every year, spending time with my family in Balagne (North East of Corsica).
“Next destination on your travel wish list:”
As we haven't been traveling for some time due to Covid, I have many destinations on my wishlist. Ideally my first stop would be New York. I love the energy of the city.
