True societal change

starts at home

When we feel connected to the home within ourselves and our built environment, anything is possible in the outside world. Through interior design, I help women re-define their lives and ultimately, what feels like ‘home’ to them.

As one of Portland’s foremost full-service interior design professionals, I offer a global perspective, deep community ties, and close relationships with talented tradeswomen, contractors, vendors, and suppliers. Great design looks to the past and future, pulling from soulful elements, grounded in a timeless feel, and elevated by a modern touch.

Michelle

Wow, Emilia Interior Design & Decor absolutely knocked it out of the park with their Design Therapy session! Emmy totally got my style from the get-go, and the plan she crafted is simply spot-on for us. It's not only practical and affordable, but it also perfectly embodies the cozy and comfy vibe we were hoping for. If you're looking to revamp a space, a Design Therapy session with Emilia Interior Design & Decor is without a doubt the way to go!

Jill

I used the design therapy service and it helped me quickly and exquisitely make final decisions I was struggling with so I could proceed with confidence. The support and gifts Emilia offered were integral in me being absolutely in love with the final product. I cant recommend strongly enough this beautiful individuals talents.

Lara

If I could give her 10 stars I would! I have always struggled to make design choices for my home, but Emilia has helped me identify my style and turn blah spaces into a home that reflects me. She is truly magical at bringing color, texture and functionality together to create beautiful, unique spaces. Highly, highly recommend!

Barbara

Emilia Decor designed a multi-use room for us and I could not have been happier with the outcome! The room is part office, part tv room and her design is both beautiful and functional. Most of all, she was great to work with. It was easy to schedule, she worked with my schedule, and took care of the whole process from beginning to finish.

Colleen

The design Emmy made for our family/dining room feel so completely me that it really feels like what I would have designed myself... if I had the capacity for reimagining new spaces, the understanding of balance and design, and tactical knowledge for implementing designs and the right vendors to go to, that Emmy has. Sad for me, none of these are my strong suit. But not as sad now that we worked with Emmy and made a super beautiful space that my whole family and I love spending time in! Emmy listened really well to what we were looking for, and she provided great options for a range of approaches, budget wise (e.g., some options that included small contracting projects, or lower-cost options that focused more on furniture swapping, beautiful finishes, rearranging the layout, etc.). She also encouraged the bold wallpaper and bright colors I loved, balancing them with cohesive elements that tie everything together. She's also really enjoyable to work with - very professional and communicative... but we also laughed a lot! I hope to get another opportunity work with Emmy and I recommend her to anyone else considering doing a project with her!

Erin

Emmy is fantastic! She is very responsive, really takes time to know the space. I was remodeling a basement and needed some sparks of inspiration, she was great at giving suggestions. Emmy was able to take my screenshot ideas and blend them into a cohesive plan. Her suggested furnishings were great, she has lots of contacts in Portland and found me the perfect custom couch. I would absolutely recommend her design services.

Chris Shimamoto, Owner of Barrio

I couldn’t be happier with the entire process of working with Emmy and the results of our new bar. She is such a hard worker and passionate in ensuring that she explained each detail and was so easy to work with. She was also able to consult on adjustments and other recommendations whenever it was needed. I highly recommend her in any project! Please come by and see the results.

Sarah

I hired Emmy to help design my new home, which was a fixer upper that needed a lot of help! Without her eye, I would have been completely lost and overwhelmed. Now my home feels like the beautiful, peaceful sanctuary of my dreams. I even hired her a second time to help me design my Airbnb, which was even more fun! Emmy is a professional and inspirational visionary who makes the design process feel collaborative and satisfying. Highly recommend.
