The bulk of Turquesa’s professional work has revolved around design in one way or another, beginning with her role as primary buyer for one of Manhattan’s top gardening centers. Her taste for detail allowed her to order plants, pottery, and outdoor furnishings that she knew would fit beautifully and gracefully into her client’s NYC apartments and rooftop decks, and this knack for detail and design is something she’s continued cultivating as she’s exposed herself to innumerable cultures and art types. Turquesa brought this global influence into play when she designed her boutique bungalow in Zihuatanejo, replete with its ecologically balanced architectural style and tasteful decor from different parts of Mexico’s unique and diverse artisanal scene.
Turquesa’s appreciation for art and culture is influenced largely by her extensive global travels and residencies, which include a 15 year stretch in New York City, one year in Switzerland, seven years in Moscow, two years in Denver, and now a year in San Miguel de Allende—with each move adding nuance to her decorative taste.
Turquesa moved to San Miguel to pursue new opportunities and to provide her son with a more expansive bicultural education. Since moving here, she has been mentored by Wesley Gleason, the owner of one of San Miguel’s most successful companies—now immersed in the world of real estate, she has found a place where she can use her interpersonal skills in conjunction with her talent for interior design to find the perfect home for you and to help you make it your own with her valuable, tailored creative input.
With her charisma, her innate sense of cooperation, and her sophisticated eye for design, Turquesa is eager to put her skills to work to help you acquire the home of your dreams.
