Virtual Color Services

Living in colors is beautiful and uplifting. We are much happier in a colored room than in flat colors with no dimension. Color energy heals and regenerates.
Get into yellows for a spot of sunshine. It doesn’t just lift your spirits, it also boosts your immune system.
Get into flower colors to benefit body-mind-soul, as they are all connected.
Get creative in orange color and its derivatives to benefit your sacral chakra.
Get into green and turquoise colors to increase love essence and help your heart and thymus chakra.
Get into autumn colors to create a mosaic of all seasons.
These are just a few examples of how colors work on human beings.

Colors create shadows and highlights, they also create rhythm making the eyes very happy, which in turn send a happy message to the brain. Colors can make a person sick, or bring out the best of each personality.

Let me find your perfect interior colors that will establish a mood and create an ambience.

Be your own Interior Designer 


I created an easy online course for people who want to be lead into the dream of being their own interior designer and experience the joy to create a beautiful home all by themselves.

Finding your personal style is a process, a matter of learning techniques and following certain basic rules. With a personal style, comes color, the one and very important element that will help you to create a message, a mood, a feeling, a character, or harmony of your home.
You might change homes more times than you need in your life, perhaps your husband’s work relocates him to a new town, perhaps your social status changes, or you are an adventurous person and will sell one home to buy a houseboat. Whatever the reasons, you will know what makes a house your cocoon, a place where you can resolve your life’s matters, a place which creates the best emotions for you, your family and your friends.

That’s is the reason this course will be useful to you. I will reveal my decorating strategies that are doable, easy to implement and make sense.

This course will take you on my design journey through various modules.
At your leisure, you will gain knowledge and skills to beautify your home the way it suits you.

The course will be available very soon. Stay tuned.

RED-A Voyage Into Colors – Author Valentina Cirasola


Gauguin said: “Color is the language of the listening eye”.

If we live in a home reflecting our personality, if we wear colors becoming to our face and body and if we eat in the rainbow, we can only expect to exude positive energy, which in turn will captivate our surroundings.

With this book, I wanted to depict a colorful bouquet of information regarding home interiors, fashion, and food, colors in astrology and celebrations, all the subjects that are dear to my heart.

Discover The Power of YOU Through Your Clothes

Imagine walking in a room and lighting up that room with your style, a style that is unique to you, unique to your personality, and has people wondering how you did it.

Hi, I am Valentina Cirasola, Italian born designer. My family is composed of many artists in various fields, which were my inspiration growing up. Style surrounded me since the early days of my life. My mom was a fashion designer and owned her sartorial studio with lifelong clients. I studied fashion at the Academy of Fashion in Naples, Italy, not because my mom wanted me to follow her footsteps, but because I loved fashion. I became a fashion stylist-designer and merchandising specialist.

I spent years after years designing private collections for high profile clients, researching fabrics, trimmings, and new approaches to fashion, producing personal fashion shows in the areas I lived, decorating store windows, creating costumes for theatre plays, teaching comportment, style, even how to stand and walk on high heels or use a little coquetry to add spice to life. As long as you understand who you are and your deep inner self, a little coquetry will only empower you more.

During all of this, I was also studying to become an interior designer and I did.
I made a happy career, became the most trusted interior designer in Europe and in San Francisco Bay Area, and still going.

My many years of experience in the design business led me to offer consultations in both fashion and interiors. Through the years, my goal has been to transform people’s life by transforming living spaces and personal images with great success. As a result, my clients live in beautiful homes with comfortable spaces to nourish their spirit and mind or have a stunning wardrobe to suits their personalities.

I encourage my clients to find their personal style or colors suiting their personality, which are crucial to their professional success. Finding the right style and colors for their body shape will only increase self-confidence, even in people who are not professionals.

How I work as a Fashion Stylist:
First Step: Before starting any process of editing your clothes and the entire wardrobe, I will have a meeting with you to understand your goals and motifs you are hiring me. Please, know that it is not all about the clothes not fitting anymore, you might have other issues that challenge you, such as overspending, buying on impulse, wanting to “fit in” and getting the same items your friend has which often doesn’t look good on you, or small closet space, which we will address after the new clothes selection has been completed. Whatever your challenge might be, we will discover it together.

Second Step: We will edit your clothes and wardrobe together. If a given item is still good, fits to perfection and you still like it, you will keep it.
I will make new combinations for you with the clothes you have and show you new ways of wearing the same items. I will combine existing jewelry and various accessories in your collection with the new combination of outfits and everything will look so brand new.
However, some items will need to be discarded, given to charity or sold and I will help you in that process.

Third Step: I will shop for new items with you in stores for your budget, but I will direct you toward the best lines, shapes and colors that are only suitable to you. A piece of clothing doesn’t have to be tremendously expensive to look good, sometimes adding the right accessories will be sufficient to bring up the value of an outfit.
Fashion dictates, I choose what to wear! With my help you will learn it too when you will hire me as your image-fashion consultant. It is not only one time consultation that will fix your challenges, it’s about learning from the master what works for you, how to dress your body shape, how not to be ashamed of your textures (wrinkles, lines, etc.) and what to do for a daily practice to look at your best in any moment of the day. It is a fun process to remodel your “façade” and empower you with your transformation.

Working with me will change the way you look at clothes and you will own the principles to transform yourself and keep yourself on the “Style” path.

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman” ~ Coco Chanel ~

Fourth Step: After the process of renewing your clothes and your style, your closet space might need to be revamped as well. Now, you can have everything in the right place, well organized, easy to access, in plain view and well illuminated. As a trained interior designer, I can redesign the actual closet space and have it rebuilt by professional trade people. This is a type of service no other designer offers.
