Where do I even begin with how INCREDIBLE Serena is?! She is a very talented interior designer! I recently had my consultation with her and she showed up on time (actually several minutes early) and started sharing her ideas right away. My apartment is a medium size studio and she was able to give me vision of all the potential it has that I wouldn't have been able to see without her. She has so many great ideas that I never could have come up with on my own. Whether you're planning to furnish an entire home or rejuvenate an existing space, Serena will help you with her sophisticated style. I seriously can't recommend Serena enough!Apr 6, 2019Clizia Design's reply

Thank you! Fun project
I have worked on many custom furniture projects with Serena over the years, and I feel she's definitely one of the most gifted designers I've ever collaborated with. Her confidence and thoughtful approach to design always result in exciting and refreshing, yet practical spaces. I can't wait for our next project together!May 2, 2019Clizia Design's reply
Serena and her staff are amazing designers! They helped me to furnish my entire place (two-bedroom apt) staying in the budget agreed with no impact on the final result! Serena always knows how to put a touch of color or the right light to every spot. Her style is modern, simple and she knows how to make the difference with the small detailsApr 8, 2019Clizia Design's reply
Thank you Alan!
We enjoyed working with Serena Zanello on our update project for our home. She is true professional. She began with a long conversation with us over colors, styles, preferences and patterns. As we worked with her design suggestions, we were able to come to consensus on furniture styles and wall colors; she was able to come up with colors that my husband and I could both accept. She was very patient as we worked our way through many choices, and she sent us many possibilities and combinations which would work together, give us the update we were looking for, and satisfy us both. She really opened my mind to new possibilities that took into account our preferences and needs. She chose two very professional subcontractors, to paint and to install the flooring. Their work was detailed, accurate and careful, and clean. We are very happy with the final process of floor, wall colors, tables, chairs, sofas and lighting that fulfill the functions we need and fit our sense of beauty and form. Her choices, suggestions and enthusiasm made the final result come together beautifully. We would certainly work with her again and recommend her highly.Apr 7, 2019Clizia Design's reply
