Interior Designer Pietta Donovan Interiors
Pietta Donovan is an interior and product designer based in Brooklyn, New York. Born in New Zealand and raised in Australia, Pietta’s 20 year career has focused on private residential interiors and luxury condominium interiors, commercial design and product design. Her years with leaders Paul Siegel & Associates, CetraRuddy and Extell Development sharpened her intuition and afforded her exposure as lead designer for a substantial portfolio of New York City luxury residential condominium towers and boutique conversion loft spaces, interior projects that allowed for the design of custom furniture and lighting fixtures, shaping her interest in product design.
An expert in natural stone and tile, Pietta has refined her approach to finishes from her decades of exploration and discovery in quarries and suppliers throughout France, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Turkey and beyond. Perhaps her most powerful professional transition occurred when Pietta took time away from active design work with the intent of focusing on motherhood and her new family. It was during those years that she was provided with the much needed distance from the grind of studio deadlines and briefs and where she gained valuable time to observe and conceive of design solutions more in a reaction to what she wanted and what she felt was missing from the industry.
