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
Serena is an amazing designer and a great professional to work with. She helped us furnishing our one-bedroom apartment, proposing several solutions and combinations and selecting many pieces of furniture and lightning. She even designed some custom-made pieces that would be a better fit for our space, and had them built and assembled by one of her subcontractors. We were very happy with the final result. Serena has an exceptional talent for finding solutions to organize the space that are practical but look modern and sophisticated at the same time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone wishing to put some color and style in their home!Apr 7, 2019Clizia Design's reply
Thank You Anna, so glad you guys loved my custom pieces and appreciated my creative guidance :)
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!
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

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Interior Design Fee $120/hr First Consultation Flat Fee $90/hr * This is pure labor & brain picking. During the consultation session, I do a walk through with clients to go over what needs to be done to prepare their spaces for the remodel . During the walk through, I also candidly answer any questions clients may have. After the consultation, you’ll receive a custom proposal that includes a suggested number of hours within services offered. For Larger Projects we offer architectural services - please contact directly me for pricing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?- Initial Complementary Phone Call followed by a questionnaire the client will fill out before the on-site consultation. - First on site Consultation $90 flat fee : at this meeting we will discuss the project scope and your design style. - First Site Survey Photos will be taken and measurements of the space will also be documented. -Preliminary Layouts Focusing on the layout first will help to develop a functional space. Conceptual layouts will be presented and discussed. -Layout Development- Within this phase, details of the layout will be refined. -Furniture and Materials Selection- Once the layout has been finalized, material and furniture selections will be made. For an example: Cabinet doorstyle & color, lighting fixtures, tiles, tile pattern, paint colors, furniture etc. -DD Package : Documenting is vital in executing an efficient design project. This will especially help to avoid mistakes in the field once construction begins. FFE documents will list the materials and finishes you have selected for your project. -Ordering of Materials- Ordering the materials in time to ensure they arrive before start of construction will prevent delays of your remodeling project. You will be able to take advantage of designer discounts; however because it is under the company's account, the designer is responsible for ordering the materials for you. Purchasing through the designer is mandatory unless designer and client decide otherwise at the start of the project. -Pre-Construction Meeting (suggested)- A meeting between the designer, builder, and client will aid in avoiding mistakes in the field. Reviewing the entire project will also help the builder retain the details of your project. During this time any questions or concerns will be addressed. -Project Management (if needed)- Weekly site visits can be made to ensure everything is being built according to plan.
