Emilia Callero, one of the Portland area’s foremost full service interior design professionals, helps women re-define their lives through interior design. She believes that no home is complete without something "old" and every room needs a vintage textile.
Emilia offers services ranging from interior decorating and space planning to kitchen and bath renovation.
Her clients benefit from her feminist design perspective, color and textile expertise, bilingual fluency and her unique approach to home design that uses symbolism, story-telling and dream interpretation to help clients uncover their true desires for their home.
Clients and colleagues use phrases like “talented, professional, so personable and so amazing,” “warm and caring,” “totally creative” and “amazingly thoughtful and artistic” to describe her.
Emilia specializes in working with women who are in the middle of a major life transition. Current clients include; entrepreneurs, retirees, new mothers, and women experiencing loss in their life.
The firm is backed by a team of the region’s leading contractors, artisans, painters, carpenters, installers and other professionals, as well as an international network of vendors and suppliers.
What makes Emilia’s success all the more remarkable is that she had no formal interior design training and is self-taught. She gained insights about design and personal empowerment during her highly successful earlier career working in Mexico, Peru and India with nonprofits dedicated to women’s empowerment issues. She later honed her design skills renovating the old craftsman home that she and her husband bought in North Portland.
“True societal change starts at home. When women feel connected to the home within themselves and their built environment, anything is possible in the outside world.” Emilia says.
