A Certified Interior Decorator, Raquel decorates in all styles, traditional to modern, based on her clients’ unique tastes and preferences. Raquel founded Orsini Interiors in 2008, combining her knowledge of materials needed to complete interior spaces, with her artistic vision and application of design principles. She likens her approach to being a set decorator for a movie, in which the story is told through the design elements in a space.
Raquel has a BA in Communication from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. Most recently, she completed a 2-year interior decoration and design program at Penn Foster, embarking on a career change that blends her love of design with her ability to match clients’ needs with their projects’ visions. Prior to her Interior Decorating career, Raquel spent 14 years in public relations and marketing.
Raquel also has a long standing love affair with music. She has written or co-written numerous songs. She can occasionally be found with her guitar and her husband, Ed, at local singer/songwriter showcases or performing at an intimate venue.
