Valentina Castellon is an award winning designer with over 10 years of residential and hospitality experience. Her passion for hospitality has resulted in dynamic and artful interior environments for lifestyle and boutique owners. With her particular admiration for art and how she believes imagery can move guests emotionally, she works closely with the design concept and gallery art curators to provide motivating art collections in her interiors. Valentina approaches an art collection by leveraging each interior space to present guests with clues and queues into the meaning of the broader art collection. She also recently has engaged with leading edge manufactures to design new products and solutions for hospitality design.
Most recently, Valentina has made an impact on AC Hotels by Marriott by championing the brands goals to highlight one of a kind art in each of their hotels. Valentina will be speaking on a motivating panel of how art plays a role in design.
