As an art collector, I had some specific design requests. I talked to a number of interior design groups before I settled on DecArte and gave my decorating problem to Irena Feldman. It was a wonderful experience working with her. She is knowledgeable, creative and passionate about art and design. She did amazing design job to make my art collection the center of attention. Im enjoying my place every day and also Im getting a lot of compliments.Aug 10, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?As for pricing, it depends on the project and size. The first consultation is free to get an estimate. However, after the project is determined there will be a rate of $125/hr. or option for a flat fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I want to know as much as possible about a new client. I begin with a lot of questions to uncover their goals, aspirations, dreams, budget and whatever is important to them. Once I understand the clients needs and wants, I create the concept for approval. Next, any constructions needs will be handled and supervised as well as the furniture, lighting, window treatment, etc. The final touches will include art and accessories.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My background in art history provides me with a strong knowledge in art. I formerly worked as an art consultant and then followed my passion and attended the Sheffield School of Interior Design, now known as The New York Institute of Art and Design.
