be a multipurpose space,” Di Valerio said. “Natural products seem to be important to clients,” she added. “I am also beginning to see a push for more ‘Made in America’ products and materials.”


In recent years, the distinction line between a decorator and interior designer has blurred somewhat, Di Valerio said. “Typically, however, a designer is someone that is formally educated, certified and licensed in the industry and has technical knowledge of construction, local codes, fire and zoning laws. Whoever a client hires, whether it be a decorator or a designer, I cannot stress enough how important it is to always get referrals and interview more than one.”


Di Valerio’s love for interior design sparked as a young girl, and continued to grow after she graduated from high school, got married, had children, and raised three sons. “I decided to go back to school for interior design when the youngest started junior high. I opened my own design firm while still in school, and at the urging of a friend who designed her kitchen.”


At the time, the school that Di Valerio was attending


entered her in a nationwide contest through the National Kitchen and Bath Association. “I took first place and was sent to National Kitchen and Bath Association’s annual kitchen and bath industry show in Orlando,” she said. While there for five days, I was bitten by the bug and thus began my kitchen and bath career,” she said, looking back on her profession so far. “I get personal satisfaction in knowing that what I’ve helped to create will be something my clients will enjoy for years to come. Quite often when I first come to see a new client, they will know what they like and don’t like, but aren’t sure how all of that fits together. I want to make sure that the final product meets or exceeds what they consider to be their dream space.”


Despite her success, Di Valerio has a humble attitude toward her clientele. As an interior designer, “it is a great honor for me to be asked to come into a client’s home and be part of their transformation. Ultimately my goal is to come up with solutions that will improve the quality of the client’s life and the value and functionality of their home.”
