A Career of Beauty and Function

Published in Matters of the Home, Volume 2, No. 3

Kristi Juliano’s passion for design began at a very early age. Kristi Juliano Interior Designer
As the daughter of a successful home
builder in Ocala, she was introduced to thefunction, aesthetics and trends of home design by her parents, Joe and Sharon Cangelosi. (They are now Villages residents.) Her exposure to the family business and her love for making spaces both beautiful and functional led her to make the decision to pursue her education in design. Kristi received her bachelor’s degree in design from the University of Florida in 1993. She began her career in Boca Raton Florida, where she designed and decorated many exclusive builder models, penthouse suites, and yachts.

In 1997, she moved back to the local area.  For many years she was employed by The Villages, designing and decorating numerous commercial projects. With a vast portfolio of work from hundreds of commercial and residential projects, she turned her career into a business of her own in 2008, founding Juliano Interior Design, LLC.

In 1999, Kristi received her National Council of Interior Design Qualification and thereby was able to apply to The State of Florida for her licensure . In addition to making a home or office absolutely breathtaking, she also has the knowledge of electrical requirements, spacial needs and life safety codes.  This knowledge enables her to address the function and safety of living spaces, a critical element to the true enjoyment and livability of any interior space.

Many of her current clients are located in The Villages and outlying cities, but she has worked in many locations. Her services include everything from simply helping with lighting or color selections to designing and completing renovations from top to bottom.

While some homeowners may be afraid of the cost of hiring such a skilled professional as Kristi, she always remains very conscious of a business or homeowner’s budget, as well as their needs. In many cases, she can save them thousands of dollars in making the wrong decisions. The knowledge and experience Kristi brings to the table are invaluable.  She adds real value to a real estate project, whether commercial or residential.

In addition to the personal touches she brings to each client, she consults, listens to clients needs, designs, schedules the work to be done, oversees the entire project, and voila!  A complete renovation appears. It’s not as easy as she makes it look, but the end result is hundreds of happy clients and raving fans. Much of her work is referred from past clients and also from real estate agents who know her talents and have seen her work.
