About Corena Kessel

"I have known since the age of 2 that I was going to be an Interior Designer ~!"

Even before I obtained a degree in Design I spent years working as a consulting designer in furniture and accessory stores. It wasn’t until later in life that I began to pursue this reality. I have since re-focused my studies and career on all aspects of  Interior Design. It is my honor to help create just  the perfect environment for all of my clients. I will listen carefully to your needs, save you time and stay within your investment range. I am committed to bringing your home alive just as you have imagined it, using my education, passion for Interior Design, and the support of the Design Wise team.. Together you and I will make your design project an incredible and rewarding experience! After all, your home is the largest investment of your life ~!

*Every journey begins with a single step…*
