“About sixteen years ago, I hired a decorator when my husband and two kids first moved into our home outside of Boston. She helped me with the larger pieces for that home and another one we have on the Cape. I needed finishing touches that worked along with the things I already had for both places so I’d periodically drive up and down 6A looking for a home goods store. Until Casabella Interiors opened there wasn’t any shop around with quality accessories – even in the Boston suburbs. I was thrilled to find a store that had beautiful pieces that I’ve never seen before. From my first visit, Michele and her staff welcomed me and were so helpful. That was five years ago and it still amazes me how inclusive they are. Since my main residence is 60 miles away, most of the time we work remotely.
I don’t have time to shop since I’m busy with my children, so throughout the years, I’d send them emails with products that I found online that I wanted or if I was on the Cape I’d breeze in and show them pictures of my space and ask them for help. They dropped everything to help me find products for all kinds of decorating issues. I know what I like when I see it, and I usually know immediately if something resonates with me. Michele picked up my style very quickly. And she has this catalog memory of products she carries –all quality pieces — so she rolls really fast with options – and one of them always turns out perfect.
Everyone on the Casabella team has this incredible eye and vision for putting things together and blending different colors and textures so a room looks pulled together and stunning.
From beautiful candlesticks that Shannon recommended to a stunning architectural panel for a long hallway, Casabella gave me ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. I bought a bookcase there for my Cape foyer, and shelf-by-shelf they helped me find the perfect accessories for it. Since they know my rooms, color schemes, and measurements (they remember everything), I’ve never brought anything home from them that I didn’t love. They’ve also helped me with quick updates – a few times right before I was about to have company. People notice the difference and I get a lot of compliments on things I’ve purchased there.
I don’t know why after all this time, but it still surprises me how finishing touches make such a huge impact. Casabella has made me love my home in a way I never did before. Every time I walk in the door, I’m in awe of how beautiful it looks. It’s why I always go out of my way to refer people to them.”
