Nemanja joins the Upscale family with impressive international experience.
He lives and breathes design, and his passion for quality materials and beautiful pieces underscores a distinctly architectural approach. Nemanja feels strongly that the basis of any great project is an open and trusting relationship between client and designer. 



What drew you to become an interior designer?

When I was young I was inspired by amazing houses, interiors and projects that I saw in movies and magazines, that I wanted to see, touch and experience. Then I started thinking how it would be to create something beautiful, a house or interior that will fulfill all my clients needs and make them happy. That was, and that is my motivation ever since.


Can you describe your dream client?

It's a balance of them knowing what they want and of course them trusting me also.

What has been your most rewarding project to date?

My most rewarding project is certainly a project for a 300sqm penthouse in Cairo, future home of the great young couple, which was also the most complicated to design due to its size. The reason for this is the freedom that my clients gave me, which is the dream of every architect, and of course because of the full confidence that they had in me. The project is in its final phase, so soon I hope my clients could enjoy it completely.

What do you think is the most challenging aspect of being an interior designer?

The most challenging aspect in my job is combining client wishes, real possibilities and my ideas, and to make something great out of it.


If you had to choose another profession, what would it be, and why?

I wouldn't choose it :)

What is a current design trend you love? And one you hate?!

I love working with high quality design pieces, unique pieces, something that is special and that tells the story. I love glamour  and I think that glamorous contemporary but cozy trend is the one that I try to combine and create. The one that I hate is Modern Neo-Baroque style that I find exaggerated and kitsch.


If you could design a home for any celebrity who would it be, and why?

It would be someone who has taste, personality, imagination and sophistication . Someone who would give me open hands and allow me to create true masterpiece. Tom Ford and Lorde comes to my mind.

What do you think is the most exciting aspect of working with Upscale?

I love this concept of working with clients from all over the world, with people who usually couldn't be reached. I find this  platform perspective and supportive for a young talents.

How do you think interior-design should adapt for the 21st century?

It should be accessible and minimalist but personal. This combination is challenging and that is where I think architects and interior designer should focus the most.

What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume?

I like to be inspired and to search for the inspiration on my travels. That's why I like to combine new, different, sometimes even incompatible things in interiors because I think that with little effort and imagination we can create amazing spaces.
