PROFILE: CERAMIC ARTIST AND FOUNDER OF LUX EROS, DESANKA FASISKA
We are kicking off 2019 with a new profile series featuring designers, artists, interior design clients, influencers, and more. First up is Desanka Fasiska, ceramic artist and founder of LUX EROS.
What are your top three favorite design trends right now?
I’m absolutely loving the use of large graphic prints, bold saturated colors like deep greens mixed in with neutrals and earth tones, and I always love a 70’s vibe mixed in with modern.
What inspires you most?
Nature and art are always my go-to’s when I need inspiration… but because my background is in fashion, that seems to always inform my work as well. One of my biggest inspirations of the art world is sculpture and abstract paintings. I have always been drawn to these whether I’m designing clothes, interiors or ceramics.
Your ceramics feel playful and retro with a modern twist. How would you describe your design aesthetic?
There’s always femininity in my work which I think sets me apart from other ceramics artists. My line has been described as “ceramics for the fashion girl.” which I think is pretty accurate!
Eros has always spoken to me not only as a friend but as a consumer as well. How would you describe the Lux Eros customer?
See the above answer! I think that my customer is fashion and design savvy – and has a great sense of humor!
What is your favorite piece from the current collection and why?
I’m loving the leopard but honestly, I just launched basics that you can add monogramming to. I’m kind of obsessed with this!
What can we anticipate from Lux Eros this year?
I’m hoping to keep expanding the brand into more categories beyond ceramics this year. It’s been my goal for a long time that Lux Eros becomes a multi-category home decor brand and lifestyle brand.
What is your best tip for styling small spaces with accent pieces?
Less is more. I’m not a big fan of lots of color and over-mixing of prints. I love a space that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. I love a neutral space that infuses just enough glamour to feel expensive, and just enough color to make it not boring.
Which room do you think should be updated a few times a year?
I personally do more updates to my outdoor spaces for obvious reasons. But because I have a young kid, his room seems to need to be updated constantly as he grows. The rest of my home only gets updated as needed now that my kid takes all my money!
