I’m Elisabetta Rizzato and I’m the person behind this website.
I’m an architect living in Italy, near Venice and ITALIANBARK® is my interior design studio and consultancy.
My adventure here started in 2013, when I created an interior design blog called italianbark. The name came thinking about my dog. The blog is still alive (pretty unbelievable right? ) and it is still an online reference point for interior and color trends. In these years, I wrote more than 1k blogposts and shared uncountable posts on social media.
I also won some awards and I’ve been one of the first in Italy to give e-design design services – this brought me to design homes in more than 10 countries. Now, becoming older and more experienced, I prefer following less projects and with more detail – that’s why there might be a waiting list to work together.
I’m also renovating the country house I was born in, creating inside our home&studio, together with my husband Denis, who is an architect as well. You can follow the works on @italianbarkstudio – our “restoration diary”
ITALIANBARK® is not a rationally created brand, with strategy and plan behind – but it’s an always-evolving lab, responding to the changes of the digital world and of myself ( I was 28 when I created it ). If we had a manifesto (we don’t), our first values would be spontaneous thinking and authenticity, in whatever we do.
I have been giving a lot to the web but I’m also so in debt with it – thanks to the blog first then social media, together with constant & hard work, I came to do what I really love as my job.
That today, other than interior projects, is giving trend consultancies to brands in the interiors and design: by knowing the trends in our industry, they can create more profitable products and collections. I’m especially expert about colors & I share part of my researches in this website and on my instagram @italianbark
I also love creating digital resources related to this – ITALIANBARKlab is my new adventure.

Nice to meet you 🙂
