Interior Designer + Founder @ NPZ Style + Decor, Creative Director @ Bell Works
“Curiosity, wanderlust, traveling, and experience in various disciplines have shaped my sense of aesthetics. My design approach is a collage of all the encounters, places and new cultures I’ve met from all corners of the world, the museums I visit, the images and inspiration I gather for future trends that I want to develop through my projects.I’m a designer, a collector, a researcher, and I’m always adding to my mind’s ever developing moodboard to bring to my projects a unique approach and one of a kind results”. -Paola
Paola has always immersed herself in the world of fine arts and design, completing related programs at Barry University, Fashion Institute of Technology, The New School and a Master’s Degree in Design Trend Forecasting from Polimoda in Florence, Italy. Throughout her career, she has worked with a variety of industry leaders, including those from Elle Magazine, Lucky Magazine, and New York Fashion Week.Paola founded NPZ Style + Décor in 2014.

As of 2017, Paola is also the Creative Director @ Bell Works responsible for cultivating the unique Bell Works experience, as the former research facility is reborn as a live-work-shop-play-stay ‘metroburb’ – a self-contained urban environment in the suburbs. This means implementing the look, feel, and energy of Bell Works through design and cohesive branding, including the creation of the office and common space designs, event themes, graphics, signage, wayfinding and more. Paola is a native of Colombia and has already made her mark on the iconic former Bell Labs research facility. She is the lead designer for the building’s revamped public dining area, the Big Bang Café. Additionally, she has created imaginative concepts for Bell Works’ pre-built offices + public spaces, roof deck and conference rooms.
