With a strong family history of creativity and encouragement, Vanessa DeLeon always knew she had a place in the arts. However, she never expected the fast rise to success she has fortunately enjoyed. She can be seen in such shows as HGTV's Generation Renovation, Designer's Challenge, Bang For Your Buck, and Design Star, as well as numerous publications including New York Spaces, Design NJ, (201) home, Latina Magazine, Time, Entertainment, and Cosmopolitan. She is currently also a featured designer on the Food Network's Restaurant Impossible.
After starting off in her family's furniture business designing for customers, Vanessa created Vanessa DeLeon Associates (www.vanessadeleon.com) while still in school at Berkeley College for Interior Design. She also holds a degree in Fashion Merchandising from The Fashion Institute of Technology and worked for Ralph Lauren, merchandising, before attending Berkeley College. She is an allied member of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) and IIDA (International Interior Design Association).
Grounded in her Cuban roots, Vanessa felt a strong affinity for the Art Deco styling that so strongly influences her culture. This, coupled with her innovative sense and keen eye for details, results in her signature design style. Calling it "GLAMILISTIC," Vanessa combines streamline minimalism with glamorous details. She brings this look to high-end residential homes, commercial venues and hospitality facilities.
Vanessa studied Feng Shui at the Feng Shui Institute of America and has incorporated practices of that art into her work as well. She has shared her love of design by teaching at Bergen Community College.
Keeping her looks modern but with classic bones, Vanessa commits fully to her clients throughout the design process. She and her handpicked design team attend trade shows regularly to incorporate the latest trends into the firm's style. Her staff is a collection of artists from various backgrounds, from fine artists to graphic artists and interior designers, giving the diversity necessary to create a truly amazing space.
