Meet Rose

Our team is led by Rose, our Creative Director and Interior Designer, whose artistic vision and innovative design approach have been the driving force behind dozens of stunning projects. From the bustling cityscapes of New York and the serene shores of East Coast Long Island to the tranquil beauty of Lake Michigan and the exotic charm of Croatia, Rose’s designs are a testament to her ability to adapt and innovate in any setting.

Deeply driven by aesthetics, Rose’s passion for creating visually stunning spaces is evident in her work. However, she goes beyond mere beauty and places a strong emphasis on functionality and comfort. For Rose, it’s crucial that the spaces she designs are not only luxurious and refined but also livable and practical for her clients.

When it comes to selecting pieces for her design projects, Rose forms a deep and personal connection with each element. Every choice she makes is a reflection of her commitment to harmoniously blending luxury, aesthetics, functionality, and the unique preferences of her clients. Her designs become a true reflection of her clients’ lifestyles, offering spaces that are not only visually captivating but also enhance their overall well-being. 

On a personal level, Rose leads a fulfilling life outside of her design endeavors. She shares a marriage with Frank, and they are excitedly approaching their 20th Wedding Anniversary in July 2024. Together they have two incredible children, Luciana and Matteo, and their home is filled with the joy of a diverse group of pets. Their furry companions include Max, a charming yet stubborn French Bulldog, Kodiak, a majestic Cane Corso, and an endearing cat named Kitten. Rose’s love for nature extends to a dozen-plus chickens and three thriving bee colonies, showcasing her affinity for the natural world.

When Rose is not immersed in the world of design, she finds solace and delight in her culinary pursuits. Making pasta is one of her cherished passions, and every Sunday she crafts a delectable sauce, complemented by a tantalizing dessert. Her culinary expertise likely informs her understanding of the importance of creating functional spaces that cater to the needs and pleasures of everyday living.

Apart from her love of design and family, Rose finds great fulfillment in traveling. She seeks out laid-back destinations situated near stunning oceans or seas, places where she can unwind, gain inspiration, and rejuvenate her creativity. The quote, ‘We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment’ by Hilaire Belloc, perfectly encapsulates her belief in the enriching experiences that travel offers.
