Meet Rejoy Marsella of Rejoy Interiors in Venice

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rejoy Marsella.

Rejoy, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I remember designing my very first house when I was five years old. I asked my Grandmother to buy me one of those pink, plastic houses for my Barbie Doll and instead, she responded with “Why don’t you make one?” and handed me a cardboard box. I spent hours designing that little house! I wanted it to be special, so I remember drawing on the walls to create the illusion of wallpaper. I used drinking straws and tape to make curtain rods and hung tissue paper as drapery panels. I’ll never forget the feeling of just using my imagination and playing… being completely lost in creating. On that day I fell in love with designing and I have loved interior design ever since. ‘Thank you, grandma!’

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s all about attitude! One of my biggest designer inspirations, Barbara Barry, once said, “Do everything you do with love.” It sounds cliché, but the more I think about it, the more I really believe it’s the key to success. To be good at anything in life we have put our whole heart into it. When you’re loving what you do, your creativity just works for you. So, if you’re not feeling the love, think about why, or try a different approach.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Rejoy Interiors story. Tell us more about the business.
Rejoy Interiors is a boutique Interior Design firm that specializes in remodel and full bespoke interior design projects. I create spaces that feel joyful, clean, and elegant, but I’ve intentionally stayed away from being pinned down to one “signature” style. I’ve worked on so many different types of projects including traditional, transitional and contemporary. My ultimate goal is to create spaces that capture the vibe and essence of my clients, so you’ll find that my work varies from home to home. Honestly, the greatest compliment I’ve heard over and over again is, “Finally, my home is SO me now!”

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I do think doors open up when you are on the right path and pursuing what is in alignment with your purpose.  Perhaps that could be called luck. But more often than not, I believe success happens when preparation meets opportunity, and you can create both.
