LM Masiello – CKBD, CAPS

My first professional project was designing a bathroom for one of my retail clients.
At the time, I was a salesperson in a popular kitchen and bath showroom.
It was through that first experience with interior design that I realized my industry was lacking what I considered to be a clear, organized process for implementing a design concept.

This fueled my desire for more knowledge, which led me to earn my certification in bathroom design (CBD), then kitchen design (CKD) and ultimately, a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design (BFA).
Recently, I earned a certification in Aging In Place (CAPS) – a designation that allows me to modify my client’s homes so that they may stay in them, for the long term.

I now bring an educated opinion to the table.
My process is clear-cut, organized and something I am proud to share with my clients, as it saves them time, money and stress.
Along the way, I’ve made mistakes, as all successful people do.
But each experience has been an opportunity to improve the way that I do business.
I am always looking to the future in order to make the design experience more beneficial for my clients, more efficient for my company and more personally rewarding for myself.
Design should be a fun, creative process, for everyone involved:  a concept that differentiates “doing one’s job” from living one’s life with joy.

A couple recently told me that I was their “Rock Star Designer”.
I like the sound of that.
Let’s be rock stars!
And let’s live our lives with joy!
