"Good design has great longevity."
ADORNA Design’s founder, Danielle Capozzi, developed her passion for design at an early age. By visiting relatives in architecturally rich cities abroad, she was exposed to artisanal craftsmanship - both historic and contemporary - and realized that details matter. Danielle pursued this passion through the study of Architecture and Interior Design while attending Philadelphia University and The American University of Rome. Her professional experience of nearly 20 years includes work in both the public and private sectors including high-end urban, suburban and vacation residences, commercial, hospitality, historic renovations, adaptive reuse, and mixed-use developments.
Through her formal training and multi-disciplined skillset at various scales, Danielle offers tremendous value to her clients. Her unique design perspective seamlessly integrates interiors with architectural context, and she specializes in developing visions and managing the collaborative process across client, architect, designer, municipality, builder, subcontractors and vendors. Danielle's ability to create innovative and functional spaces coupled with her eye for textures, colors and furnishings is why so many clients return with their next design endeavor. With a fundamental belief is that the most successful efforts are built on trust and transparency, Danielle strives to help clients navigate a project from conception through completion via a streamlined, educational and fun process.
Her knowledge and diverse portfolio can be attributed to her time at Wyant Architecture, WRT and The Houses at Sagaponac. Danielle currently resides in Haddonfield, NJ with her husband, Justin, and their two children, Evalyn and Dean.
Whether it's where they live, work or play, ADORNA Design believes everyone is deserving of a beautiful and functional environment that reflects their unique interests and inspires their lifestyle.
Using design to enhance one's quality of life is the guiding principal behind ADORNA Design's work, all while respecting and celebrating the architecture. The practice is devoted to thoughtfully conceived solutions, and vetting these solutions according to project scope, budget and timeline is a top priority in any project regardless of scale.
It is especially fitting that Danielle's maiden name, Adornato - translated from Italian, means to beautify and enhance - served as the inspiration behind the name of the firm. ADORNA Design believes in creating fresh, timeless spaces that respond to and enhance how people currently live and adapt to how they see themselves living in the future.
