Slow Luxe Life

Andrea May

Designer, Andrea May's passion is Slow Luxe Design—creating inheritable spaces that tell the stories of the people who live there and the artisans who created them, that honor the beauty of authentic, handcrafted objects and that support local communities. Slow Luxe Design celebrates the luxury of locally handcrafted products, thoughtful custom detailing and carefully selected vintage and antique objects. Slow Design is to the home what Slow Food was to the plate: It's about mindfully choosing high quality, local, sustainable objects for the home.
