Aviva started her interior design career at the young age of 8 years old. While having playdates, she found herself redesigning and reorganizing her friend’s homes. One time she could not help herself. Her friend’s house was so dysfunctional and wasted so much space. Aviva moved around the furniture, cleaned and reorganized everything, and found items to accessorize the room. Her friend’s mother came in and was surprised by the change. Aviva apologized and offered to move everything back. The mother stopped her and said, “No I love it this way thank you!” At restaurants instead of coloring the placemats they gave out to children, she would flip them over and sketch out a better layout for the restaurant. She just could not suppress the urge to redesign spaces to maximize their functionality in addition to making them beautiful.

Aviva received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She graduated with Cum Laude and Deans List honors. During university and beyond graduation, she worked for various designers in New York City and Los Angeles. Each designer focused on a different style gaining Aviva exposure to traditional through modern design projects. These opportunities helped Aviva define her own style which is known for being warm, comfortable, and classic with a little edge. She creates beautiful functional spaces that are improve her clients lives.

After almost a decade of experience working with other designers, Aviva decided to branch out on her own opening Fersht Studio in 2011. Fersht Studio is a full service interior design firm specializing in residential and small scale commercial projects. We enjoy working on projects of all sizes and styles.
