Decorum Design is located at 300 West Main St in the Fox Meadow plaza in a little building on the right that looks like a barn, where light brings space to life.
Tell us about your background and how Decorum came to be?
I am a lifelong resident of the Worcester area, and have over 30 years of lighting and design experience. I am a graduate of Notre Dame Academy, Becker College and a Certified Lighitng Associate with the American Lighting Association. I decided to venture out on my own when my dear friend and employer (Lightlab), Joey Martucci passed away. I wanted to then continue to offer clients the same customer service and the experience of a professional with both technical and decorative knowledge that customers deserve.
With both family , friends and a supportive business partner (Lisa N.), I was able to make my dream a reality.
Everything inspires me. I find inspiration all around me. From people to color to architecture.
What do you love about owning a small business?
I love that I have an opportunity to create environments for people by displaying options that mix their personal tastes. I love the challenge and having the creative freedom.
Why did you choose Northboro for your business location?
I chose the location in Northboro because it was the comfortable environment for me to start this venture. I left a very busy city street and needed the serenity of a more serene and relaxed neighborhood. It felt right the minute I walked in.
Local business has always been my choice personally and professionally. I have always worked for family owned businesses. I would always support the local business for better customer service and knowledge.
Being local and small, tell us what you feel is the most important element to customer service?
Trust is the most important element.
