About Carole Topin
Graduated from the prestigious Académie Charpentier, Carole spent her career as an interior designer in Paris & London experimenting the energy, the richness of the cultural diversity and the unlimited creativity of these two cities. Sharing her time between Paris, London, and Athens, she keeps travelling all over Europe, collaborating on varied outstanding projects.
Her open-minded culturally aware mindset informs her strikingly unique style:
From Paris, she brings this casual chic, instantly recognisable luxury French touch & savoir-faire.
From London, she brings this quirky, cosmopolite, sustainable orientated approach.
From Athens, she brings this connection to nature, colourful palette, pure light perspective.
In her approach, Carole always listens very carefully to her clients to understand their identity, to catch their aspiration and embrace their oneness. “No repetition. No likeness. Everything will be reinvented for each client like a new canvas. I want to be recognised for the ability to realise my client’s expectations”. Her last two projects in Athens are the perfect illustration of this concept. “In the city centre, the Milos Hôtel tells a luxury, classic, refined gastronomy-focused story while just 10 minutes’ walk away, the Moxy Hotel welcomes its visitors in a fun, totally pop and colourful space. I love this diversity in the creative process.
