Marlene Interiors & Design
Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love.
- Nate Berkus
Why did you start your business?
I've has always had an innate talent for design. After twenty-five years in the fashion industry, I sold a highly successful accessory company to pursue a new passion: Interior Design.
It was a natural transition for me since my expertise in color, textiles and placement helped propel me into a world where I now get to create beautiful and inviting interiors that my clients love.
Biggest Achievement so far.....
After leaving a successful business after 25 years and pivoting into a completely new industry, my hard work and dedication to getting off the ground have been such an accomplishment.
Long Island, New York
Greatest Lesson Learned....
Don't let fear stand in the way of following your passion. It was a scary time after being in the city for 25 years and then having to reinvent myself and prove to myself and others that they can trust me. Buying a home, renovating it, and designing it on my own gave me the confidence in knowing that 'I could do this'.
Person, Place or Thing that inspires you
I love living in this beautiful town on the water. The colors of the water, the sunsets, the ocean are all daily inspirations for my work.
Words to Foster others....
Work Hard. Stay Focused. Don't Give Up.
