About us

DESIGNING NAPLES has a wide range of industry knowledge and this can be a check-proof asset to the construction team and to our clients. In essence, we want to plan as well as execute your project. Experienced eyes will see details you are going to miss. 

Did you know the role of an “Interior Designer” can be very different from the role of an “Interior Decorator”?

All designers can take on the role of a decorator and work very successfully on your behalf. However, we can offer so much more for you well before the decorating even begins. We bring licensed experience with systemized planning, demo, drywall, electrical, plumbing, and reviewing blueprints with our trades. We bring in architects, engineers, CAD technicians, and specialists when needed. Then we introduce the final selections and decorating of furniture, fabrics, and color to the bones of that beautiful to-be-completed structure called “home”.

Have you ever described a beautiful room to someone who just doesn’t get how wonderful it was to you? Then, they see that room … And finally you hear those words … WOW. Our best interior designs are well-thought-out equations of art and science. It’s a visual success while it’s also analytical success. It’s understanding involves the practice of studying both and then bringing them carefully together. Detail is what we are about with every single client we take on.
