Space Planning Services
When we look at a space first we take it all in then we start to break it into increments and look at the individual items. Each item contributes to the unified feel of the room. The room then becomes an increment in the overall design of the home. The goal to have each space successfully perform its function while harmoniously contributing to the experience of living in the home.

We are passionate about working with clients individually to assist in creating the spaces that they love to be in and to be proud to share with their family and friends.

Window and Bedding Treatments
Windows open give us a view of the outside world from the inside of our home. They also provide privacy from the outside world. Functional window treatments can be simple or ornate but they must do what they need to do. Decorative treatments can emphasize what the window is framing or it can hide an undesirable element. The options in selections are only limited by the imagination, but the result must make sense for the client to want to invest in it. At Leone Interiors we listen to your guidelines and offer the best choices regardless of budget. Yes, some textiles are costly and rightly so as they can be like a fabulous work of art. However, we always offer alternatives so that the best choice can be selected.
Artwork and Accessories
The biggest difference between fabulous and just ok is usually about detailing.Â Detailing does not mean overdoing with elements just to layer or take up space.Â It means careful attention to the intention of the item used.Â It does not matter if the area is simplistic or opulent, the details are what we look at once weâ€™ve taken in the overall visual.
These details are what adds variety and texture and often spurs conversations.Â An interesting piece of art, a beautiful pillow, an unusual floral container…the list goes on and on but the reaction is always one that brings a smile.

Vacation and Rental Properties
At Leone Interiors, we understand that vacation rental properties and staging homes to sell share a common denominator- giving maximum impact with budget requirements. What we do is focus on the strengths of the property and specify what is needed rather than overly decorating.
For vacation properties the ease of maintaining the space for multiple users is very important. Having all the necessary utensils for cooking a meal and a relaxing space to enjoy the time away are crucial .Being sure guests have proper sleeping spaces is also key. Bedding must be comfortable and linens superb. A strong sense of design must be introduced to set the mood for feeling relaxed and inspired. Perhaps we want to emphasize a fabulous view. Using functional pieces with strong design elements can make the difference between a great space and a basic rental. The function is the same but the feeling is totally different.
Home Staging Services
We work with realtors and sellers to assess the home in an effort to maximize the impact of the home for prospective buyers. Â This can be as basic as moving a few pieces around to Â adding elements that enhance the space.
