Our Story

A Design Art & House is the brainchild of two friends, who decided to combine their passion for design, art, and interiors to create a full design service company dedicated to home renovation. After college, the two friends left their homes in Italy to travel the world and experience other cultures. Finally settling in New York where they entered the domain of fashion and textile design. Their careers developed separately, they became respectively the owner of a design studio and an executive in the fashion world, but the dream of working together was always present.

Their love for interior design started in Italy and developed through the years until A Design Art & House was created in 2016, a comprehensive design service with a simple goal: to reinvent interiors.

Whether redesigning a home or styling and staging a room their keen attention to detail, natural understanding of how color and light can change any space, and strong knowledge of design and materials always results in a fresh, warm, inviting, and refined space.

I can't believe it took us so long to leave a review. We feel so lucky to have partnered with Antonella and Nadia for our multiple projects! They helped us: re-roof, install french drains, and build an attic addition and portico and were outstanding to work with: present, responsive, accommodating, and really went the extra mile even feeding our cat while we were away during our project (multiple occasions). We fully recommend A design Art & House and would definitely use their services again with pleasure. They truly were so easy and pleasant to work with and we love the end result!

We own an old house we love, but like many old houses, this one has aging systems; plumbing, electrical etc. It also has many wonderful quirks worth loving and preserving. This has always made facing maintenance and renovations very fraught. We needed to find someone who understood and respected our preservation concerns, but who could simultaneously work with our very limited budget. The preserving of old houses is an expensive business and on a limited budget, many judgment calls are involved.. We needed someone who "got us" as clients. In addition, we were dealing with water leaks inside the walls that were impossible to diagnose and estimate before opening up the walls and ceiling. Once we were "in" we needed to follow the problems wherever they led us. The trust really needed to be there. Antonella and Nadia were total professionals. They coordinated and supervised the demolition, plumbing, tile, and electrical work in a way that we could never have done. They were great. Did I mention that we're picky? They were terrific.

My experience with A Design Art & House was superb from the first meeting with Antonella to discuss the work to the completion of the project. Antonella understood my needs exactly and made helpful suggestions as to what would work and not work. Being based out of state, I felt confident handing my keys over to the team and was thrilled when I saw my kitchen cabinets repainted and my bathroom remodeled. I have no hesitation in recommending A Design Art & House.

Nadia and Antonella helped us design a beautiful modern kitchen to replace the ancient mess that was there when we bought our house. The job was much more affordable than we expected, and the quality was top notch. Like every major renovation, there were some minor hiccups along the way, particularly due to the pandemic and scarcity of certain products, but Nadia and Antonella were communicative and creative in finding quick fixes and alternate sources when necessary. We love the finished product, which we expect to add at least double the renovation cost to our home’s sale price when we eventually move. In the meantime, we’ll enjoy this house with a fantastic kitchen.

Great work by a team of professionals! This was a complete home remodel, plus an extension which included a full basement, open plan kitchen/dining, master suite, and rooftop balcony. Building through a tough year with lockdowns and various challenges, it was reassuring to have such a dedicated team by your side with lots of design and remodeling knowledge. Kept us up to date on any supply issues and ran a tight budget. They have an amazing sense of style and worked well with our vision to bring it all together. We are extremely happy with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend them!

Very happy with our decision to work with Nadia & Antonella after getting quotes from other companies they really stood out for many good reasons. They had some great ideas for our vision and their crew is very clean and on time. They did a good job covering the floors and walls, they vacuum and clean up as much as possible. They were always available and provided updates, answered questions, they have come in person to see the progress and address our questions. Our project finished up and we love everything, we really felt they went above and beyond for us.

Huge thanks to Antonella and team for turning our old fireplaces into a true beauty! They were so great to work with and we look forward to working with them more in the future!

We used A Design Art & House to remodel our powder room and convert our office into a mudroom. They were extremely professional, timely, responsive, and most importantly -- they had beautiful and creative ideas. They were able to take our vision and make it come to life. We had received quotes from a few companies and A Design Art & House was extremely reasonably priced and do beautiful work in a very reasonable time frame. I highly recommend them.

A Design Art & House is amazing. Nadia and Antonella, the principals, are always available, honest, and a pleasure to work with. They were quick to respond to any and all questions/concerns and kept us abreast of the budget at all times. I can’t say enough good things about them. Renovations can be a headache, but they made the process easy and painless. I highly recommend them.

Working w/ A Design Art & House to implement a full interior gut reno was a truly delightful experience. I generally have beyond high expectations and Antonella, Nadia, and team met them every step of the way. A full gut entails hundreds of deliberations and choices, and often planning on the fly, and Antonella and Nadia were able to break down the decision-making process to digestible bites and offer options/solutions for each. Our style, goals, and dreams appeared in every suggestion they made and the end result is truly fabulous! We pinch ourselves each day and often feel beyond lucky with the end result!

We wanted to touch base to let you know how pleased we are with the design and look of our master bath and bedroom. Since we are spending so much time at home, we are very appreciative of the outcome!

The bathroom is everything we could have wanted. And the design really opened up and utilized the space we had well. If anything, the bedroom feels larger. That's probably due to the improved functional storage the new closets provide.

Carmen R. May 2020

We have a pretty unique experience. We didn't realize we wanted to renovate until the very last minute. We had already bought all new furniture without thinking of renovating our first floor. Finally, we decided and hired A Design Art & House. Everything came out fantastic! We were able to make arrangements and modify our plans. We also were in a tight budget and A Design ART & House was able to meet that budget. We are very pleased it's basically like having a new home. Highly recommended.

We hired A Design Art & House for our bathroom and kitchen. After much research about the "right" interior designers that would understand what we wanted ( and I am a very peaky person), we finally found the right people. I was looking for my own style and someone translated it to a unique design. And they really succeeded. If you are looking for originality, fair prices, and genuine interior design with a soul do not look further. I'm truly happy to have something original, clean, and not overpriced.

Professionals with style! I've worked with A Design Art & House on several projects and have been blown away by their dedication to the project (no matter how big or small), their unique sense of creativity, texture & color, and their consistent ability to remain on budget. Their expertise with materials, sourcing, and local regulations - including historic districts - is top of the class! You will not be disappointed.

I bought a circa 1905 victorian house fully renovated by Design Art & House. They did such an amazing job in prioritizing investments and upgrades, in respecting the original personality and style of the house, in choosing materials, textures, and colors. They have exquisite taste, final touches were incredible. We loved their work so much we are now looking to do additional work in the basement with them. I would strongly recommend them to anyone that is looking to respectfully renovate, with personality, creating not just functional but also unique spaces.
