“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards” – Soren Kierkegaard

This post is a look back at this past year. It’s a reminder to pause and celebrate our accomplishments.

Thank you to all our clients who made this a fulfilling year.

We started off the year with a quote in Home Textiles Today magazine for our 2022 predictions. No surprise here – the keyword is “vintage”.

Kitchen and Bath Magazine published us for “what’s trending”

The National Kitchen and Bath Show in Orlando Florida was inspirational!

We then found a new local custom maker for our carved mushrooms


Off to another Industry event for the NJ Chapter of ASID

The last room in one of our multi-room projects was completed!

Back to the Design &Decoration Building for inspiration.

This year we vowed to use only hand blocked or bespoke prints.

And with that in mind…used a record number of bespoke fabrics in one room.

Our primary bedroom design project was completed!

We returned to the International Contemporary Furnishings Fair for more inspiration

Here’s the view from a NYC project we started this year.

And off to another factory visit.

What’s better than a little Matisse at the MOMA for inspiration?

A multi room project was published!

Hmm…is that George to the Rescue at the NJ ASID Design awards ceremony ?

The start of a bed and bath project.

And an August installation where my client joked (back August of ’21) about the furniture arriving in time for Easter

(okay, not so funny)

Our award winning bathroom project was published!

Summer antiquing in the Catskills

Then the start of another primary bathroom project…

Me, at an industry event, trying to win this chair by striking a pose (I didn’t win)

Scheming color combinations

And our first cover!

Near completion of the primary bedroom project

And we discovered the perfect rug for this sunroom project…

A NYC Installation… artwork currently in progress!

A little inspiration from the Folk Art Museum featuring self taught artist, Abe Hirshfeld

The (almost) completion of our Primary Bath project!

And a photoshoot fit in right before Thanksgiving

A hand made mosaic for our “Lower Level” Project

One half of the Lower Level project that we can’t wait to share!

We squeezed in a Primary bedroom … to be continued!


We’re so grateful for the opportunity to be able to work with so many wonderful clients.

We will see you in 2023!

We are excited to share that Fiori Interior Design’s recent award winning design has made the COVER of Morris Essex Health & Life magazine! 

Woo Hoo!  Read the article here: https://issuu.com/wainscotmedia/docs/msx_octnov22_issuu

Thank you so much to this amazing client for allowing us to share this project and placing their trust in us for over the past ten years!

I’m thrilled to share that this past June Fiori Interior Design won two awards from New Jersey Chapter of The American Society of Interior Designers!

Our first award was in the category of Single Spaces for our Primary Bedroom project. Our clients requested a calming retreat and we feel that we accomplished this task! Incorporating hand-painted and silk embroidered panels created a one-of-a-kind backdrop to this space. Read more about it here. (Shout out to our amazing clients who put their trust in us and allowed us to do our best work!)

Our second award-winning project was this bathroom remodel that incorporated Universal Design principles. Amongst other things, we specified items like non-slip floors and a zero-entry shower.

If you’re thinking about a interior design project for your own home, book a discovery call here! We’d love to learn more about your project.

For the second year running, we are proud to announce that Fiori Interior Design has been awarded the Design Excellence Award by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) for two of our projects.  

The first, which I will discuss briefly, fell under the category of “Specialty and Unique Spaces”.  

Our challenge for this Essex County, NJ project was what to do with that one last lonely bedroom now that the kids had all left the nest.  Actually not so much of a challenge as this client knew exactly what she wanted for her growing collection of new and vintage handbags and shoes!  

Details in this space included adding UV film to the windows to protect this client’s growing collection.  An Hermes window treatment hints of the treasures in this room.  
We chose to repeat the navy blue hue on the ceiling, aka the sixth wall. This richly dramatic contrasting hue completed the space and gave the room a feeling of intimacy and warmth.  
An upholstered faux cheetah bench subtly repeats the animal pattern in the roman shades while custom artwork recalls this client’s favorite pieces.

For more photos from this project (and others!) please visit our new website.   It perfectly captures the way I feel about design and the way my team and I approach our projects: with thoughtfulness and authenticity. And, as always, if my design work can be of service, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
