See Your Soul Reflected in Your Home

If you’re thinking of launching a redecorating or remodeling project, congratulations! This is an exciting time and we can’t help but be excited for you. While the Ambiance design team is happy to offer you tips and guidance at any point, we know that designing or redesigning your living space can feel a bit overwhelming. There’s much to do and little time to do it in, especially if you’re going it alone.

Measurements need to be taken. Materials need to be decided on. There are paint colors, fabrics and other choices to consider. Helping you select furnishings which suit your design style and your lifestyle is part of what Mary Jo Quatela-Celona loves about being an interior designer. Whether you want to make a vibrant statement or a subtle one, her goal is always to make your “dream space” a reality!
