Fashion and Hospitality Design into Design for Wellness

2017 Studio Early Birds was launched in a small beach town in the South Bay region of California for her personal design and creation.  It was launched as a creative design studio that brings wellness into interior “space”.

Chinatsu understands how to bring all of the elements such as light, fragrance and energy flow together harmoniously in a intuitional gestalt vision.  She naturally and artistically curates every aspect of her life in this way.  With her talent, she can show you how do you style your “space” or project to represent who you are and what your needs.
