More Than Decoration, We Create Unique and Memorable Spaces

Dream It. Design It. Live It.

Unexpected, eclectic, and filled with creativity, character, and soul, a Ksar Living project simultaneously tells the story of a space, its owners, and the global creators behind each piece of decor, art, or furniture. 

Design, decoration, and styling are fused seamlessly for a result that feels homely yet high-end, edgy yet elegant, and laidback yet luxurious. We call it holiday architecture; designing a lifestyle you’ll never need to take a break from is our goal.

Three decades into this transformative journey, his unwavering attention to detail and forward-thinking vision ensure that Ksar Living remains at the forefront of the industry.

Initially establishing himself in the fashion industry with the creation of his first womenswear collection, Zon, Alberto’s keen eye for beauty and aesthetics evolved when he crossed paths with designer Yvonne Hulst. This meeting led to a shift in focus towards interiors, laying the foundation for Ksar Living. Together, Alberto and Yvonne embarked on a global journey, immersing themselves in diverse cultures, interacting with locals, and connecting with artisans. What started as a hobby blossomed into a lifelong passion, filled with travel, creativity, people, and continual discoveries.
