I’m Christine Azcona-Morel, the founder and lead designer of Amelia’s Decorating and Design. I have always been amazed by architectural and the intricacy of details. My passion for design is the drive behind firm, colors, patterns, and texture truly do bring life into your home. In the last ten years I’ve worked with so many clients, high-end designers, well-known architects, contractors, and fine woodworkers, developing my craft and invigorating my passion with each experience. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Philadelphia and shortly after opened my firm. I am also an Allied ASID member (American Society of Interior Designers).
How many projects do you average in a year?
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
What are your prices, and my answer is always depends on the size of your project and your involvement.Every project and home is different and that is also true for a client. I have clients that have an idea and say I want this and are now overly involved in the project but then I may have a client that doesn't know what they really want and then they are so overly involved that they may want to DIY, and/or change their mind throughout the process, all these things are considered.When I design a space I LIVE and BREATHE that space, I think about it all day and night to make sure it comes out perfect, so I value my time and only work with clients who are willing to appreciate my dedication.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
I do a follow up visit/call to make sure everything is still exactly how they wanted and I always contact my client during holidays.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?

What is important to know about your profession?
You must be READY to HIRE an interior designer because it requires time and patience to see all you want come to reality. It is not like HGTV that you ask and in a couple of days you get; unless of course everything you want in the store and their is no construction needed.This is due tot he possibly that the designer has more than one project. Design is a team effort, every team member has to be on the same page.Design is not something you can snap your fingers and it appears, you must be willing to wait for the perfect sofa, fabric, and treatment to be available to see your home be exactly how you want.
How can we save money hiring you?
Make a list of items you want and need and then list in in order or priorities. The ones that are lowest on the list can be replaced with something that is similar but more cost effective.
