Hello, it's very nice meeting you!
My name is Giselle, and I am the principal interior designer of Giselle Ulmo Interiors. I want to share with you my story and how I developed my passion for design.
It all began when I was a child, as far back as I can remember, when I would spend hours playing with my Barbie’s furniture and clothing in my mother’s sewing room. It continued when I attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale for fashion design. I moved to New York and began my full-time career designing accessories in the fashion industry.
Then, when I moved into my first home, my interest shifted to interior design and that open doors to new areas of creativity. As I continued to expand my experience. I returned to the Fashion Institute of Technology were I earned my Interior Design degree. Since then, I have been designing interior spaces from remodeling my own home to an assortment of clients projects including space planning, renovations, kitchen and bathrooms, architectural detailing, and furnishings just to name a few.
I'm fascinated by the process of creating environments where we can feel our best both physically and mentally. As an industry professional, I understand that our environments have a direct impact on our wellbeing. To me, having that knowledge allows me to design spaces with my client wellbeing in mind. My interest intrigues me to learn more about becoming more conscious of the choices I offer my clients and ultimately how I design spaces. This leading me to become one of the handfuls of interior designer in New York with a WELL AP accreditation.
I have a busy design practice with design projects in New York and throughout the country. I am happy to say that my work gives me great joy and I consider myself very fortunate to do what I love. Design is always evolving and I find great delight out of the discovery.
For me, my clients are the most important and I want to use my skills and knowledge to help them achieve a home that they have always envisioned. I believe their home should tell their story. I know that I have completed my job when a client is surrounded by the things they love and the spaces is a reflection of their lifestyle. I get great satisfaction seeing my clients happy with the results.
