Meet the Designer

My name is Valerie Turco Deganello and I'm a professional Interior Decorator, educated at the accredited Interior Design Institute.  I help my clients to create beautiful spaces that fit their styles, tastes, and budget, and bring joy to their lives.

A truly captivating space is one with a beating heart and a vibrant, pulsing soul. Influenced by diverse cultures, magnificent architecture, and the sublime natural world, I gather inspiration from my travels around the globe,  from the old world charm of the French countryside to the polished glam of the Hollywood Hills. But no matter how far I’ve roamed, my best ideas have come from one-on-one conversations with clients.  Getting to know my clients as people, not just home dwellers, is what allows me to dig deeper and get to know their likes, dislikes, and how they spend their days. I create sophisticated, impactful, and awe-inspiring spaces for my clients,  always keeping comfort and function at the top of mind.  Every home has a heart and soul as real as the people who occupy it and it is my passion to bring design to life. 

I believe interior design is about more than creating a visually enticing space. It’s an all-encompassing process that elevates the way the space makes you feel, the energy it exudes, and the way it expresses your uniqueness. True bespoke can never be achieved by cutting and pasting images from a Pinterest board. The best way to create a truly personal space that is truly your own is to think of a room as a blank canvas. The ideas and inspiration  are the paint that colors the room with beauty and purpose until it becomes a masterpiece. Bespoke design is meant to be experienced with all of the senses and enjoyed for years to come. 

I started VTD Interior Decorating in 2020 when, like many of us, I had some time to think about how I could channel my educational background, experience, and deep passion for interior decorating and home decor into a business. After helping my first clients realize their true design dreams, I discovered that my love for design and decor was only half the equation. I came to understand that my real satisfaction comes from seeing my clients’ faces light up when their finished space is revealed to them for the first time. 

Because my process begins with my clients inviting me into their intimate spaces and disclosing their deepest likes and dislikes, I take that responsibility very seriously. By treating each project as if it was my own—with a commitment to trust, honesty, and transparency—I do my best to make my clients feel confident, comfortable, and secure. I am meticulous and detail-oriented and refuse to settle for average or “acceptable.”  

Most of us have one place that we call home and it is my goal to create a space that embraces the spirit, style, and needs of the home-dweller. 

I look forward to taking the next steps toward creating the home of your dreams!
