"I cannot speak highly enough about Ann and Angelo Cane. They are truly gifted at interior design, but the one thing that sets them apart is their unique ability to design with the client in mind. Once again, they have transformed our house into a home. 11 years ago they designed our main living spaces and literally knocked it out of the park. I was ready about a year ago to begin the process of updating our look and feel. All About You was there every step of the way helping me select new flooring, paint colors, kitchen cabinets, countertops and backsplash to lay the ideal backdrop for our new look. This week came all the finishing touches and I was 100% blown away once again with their attention to detail and how our home now truly reflects us as a family. Every single item that was brought into our home is perfectly suited for the look I had been dreaming of. They are so wonderful to work with. They listen to your desires and then deliver on time and on budget. Their communication and follow up is like no other in the service business that we have worked with over the years. My highest recommendation is given to Ann and Angelo. They are an absolute joy to work with and they will deliver the most beautiful space you can imagine."
"I knew from our first meeting that we made the right decision asking All About You to help us. We decided to do the painting ourselves but had struggled with selecting paint colors. Within minutes, Ann had all the colors selected, and we LOVE them all! Then came the furniture and rugs, and then the finishing touches (including two beautiful paintings Angelo did off a favorite beach photo of ours) – all the spaces are unique in their own way, but flow together. We are so happy with the results! And they were so easy to work with. I’m still amazed at how they were able to translate some catalog photos we highlighted combined with our cryptic description of our likes and dislikes into a home that exceeds our dreams in the look and feel. For large projects or small ones, I would not hesitate to give All About You a call! Thank you!"
"Finding a decorator and undergoing a renovation can be a stressful, daunting task. I consider myself super lucky because I found All About You. It didn't take long to realize Ann and Angelo were a competent team, and could take on my project with their creativity. They put my mind at ease with their knowledge and expertise. They just finished with the final touches of my renovation and everything is absolutely gorgeous! My house was looking worn and dreary. I needed to update my floors, family room, kitchen, and bathrooms but I was dreading all the options and the many decisions that come along with a renovation. Ann and Angelo made the whole process smooth and easy. With every option, they provided pictures or samples - from tile to paint colors, from light fixtures to furniture. Ann has an uncanny natural instinct for decorating that shines through with every detail of her work. My experience working with All About You has been nothing but positive. Ann and Angelo exceeded the expectation of what I believed I could accomplish with my budget. They were always professional and respected my likes and dislikes, They never lost patience with my endless questions and created the "look" I wanted to achieve. Throughout my project I never had to wonder where my money was going as they were completely transparent with every dime of my budget. And they actually stuck to my budgeted amount which never happens with decorators. Ann and Angelo are a great team and obviously love what they do. I love how beautiful my home looks. Every last detail is perfect! You will not go wrong hiring this duo. They are the Real Deal!"
"Ann and Angelo were amazing to work with. We started with just paint colors and then Ann helped me select furniture and then the decorations. It was great to do it in pieces. The cost is very easy to understand as it is hourly for their time and then they bring the receipts for the cost of the pieces purchased. I priced a few designers and this was much more economical. They were able to get great prices on the items in my house. I had given some pictures and a color scheme and they made my house gorgeous!! It was more amazing than I could have imagined. I loved the gray and yellow color scheme. Everything fit our personality perfect and they were able to make it kid friendly."
"Wow! I really cannot say enough great things about this experience! I have never used a designer before and I could not be any happier. We met Ann & Angelo and went over our must have's, viewed the room in question and immediately Ann had a vision of what could be done in our bonus room within our parameters. Before they left, Angelo had already sketched out their vision and presented it to us. Ann was incredible with communication and within 2-3 days we had our first communication with links to several selections she had made for our review. She continued to make selections and seek our approval throughout the process. She made the entire process go very smooth. Once the room was ready to put together, she and Angelo came into the house and created the magnificent space for my husband, me and our twin girls. She left the room looking like we have just stepped into a magazine. We honestly couldn't find a single thing that we didn't like or would chose to move even a single inch from where they placed it. She provided us with all receipts. Their hourly rate was VERY reasonable and I am already planning my next adventure with them (narrowing down what I want to do next is the hardest part!). Oh - and she was right on target with the original estimate which I have to say rarely happens with any large project I've ever contracted so that was a huge plus. I am 100% pleased with every aspect of the interaction, the final product, the cost, timing. I wouldn't have changed a single thing!!!! Now our family enjoys our new space daily and cannot wait to see what she does next."
"My husband and I were extremely pleased with the transformation of our back porch. It has enhanced our home and enlarged our living space. Ann and Angelo were very helpful in recommending contrators that made repairs to the floor, doors and screening. They selected porcelain flooring which looks like wood, new furniture, lighting, fans and accessories! One unique finishing touch was the outdoor curtains. Their expertise and customer service was superb!"
Sharyn & Paul F.
"After seeing the work Ann and Angelo had done for several of our friends, we asked them to help us with all the decorating decisions for our new home we were in the process of building. In just a few hours, they chose our wood flooring color and all of our paint colors, our tile, granite, ceiling fans, and cabinet colors. When we moved in, they helped with everything from rugs to dining room furniture to bedding! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who needs decorating help. Just to have your paint colors picked out right the first time is a huge savings for a homeowner. That alone paid for Ann and Angelo!"
Sally & Steve M.
"We have been working with Ann and Angelo for over two years. They helped us do everything with our home through construction to move-in to full-on decorating. They have decorated every room inside as well as our patio. The house is absolutely beautiful and is exactly our taste. It is sophisticated and put-together without being over done. Everyone comments on how cozy our home is, and this is because Ann took the time to get to know us and decorated our home according to OUR taste. The best part is that it is functional for our two small children as well. We also have Angelo's artwork throughout our house. He is extremely talented and even painted a mural on our son's bedroom walls. They are both delightful to work with, and I feel lucky to have found them."
April & Dave O.
"Searching the web for assistance in decorating my home may have been impersonal, but there was nothing impersonal about the relationship we have had making our new house a home! I needed someone who could listen to the general idea of our lifestyle and design ideas and then handle the millions of decisions it takes to create the perfect end result. I also appreciate quality was the main objective, not pricing. Not every item in your home has to cost a fortune to be a beautiful, quality product. I appreciate that you utilized nearly every single item from our old home. You met with me quickly after our move and even though we have been in our home less than 3 months, it looks and feels as if we have been here forever. In addition, all of the vendors we used on your recommendation were also professional and talented. Every single person who walks into our home comments on how beautiful our home looks before they are even fully through the front door. Of course, the most important part of this is how much we love our home. I know the word perfection is often overused but not by me. Somewhere along the line something is usually not 100%. However, the only word I can think of that fully encompasses what you have done for our home is just that - perfection."
"We are proud to say our beautiful courtyard is included on this web site. This was a blank area of pavers, an outdoor dining set and two Adirondack chairs. Just look at it now! We knew the potential was there but did not know where to begin. It was time to call in the talented team of Ann and Angelo. What they did with this space is BEYOND! They really took into consideration our own personal style, the Charleston style of our exterior as well as how we wanted to use this courtyard. It is equally impressive to note that they pulled together this high-end look with quality purchases from mainstream, affordable stores mixed with their imagination which gave us the courtyard of our dreams!"
Faye & Mike M.
"Ann and Angelo, I just don't know how to put my gratitude into words. I have had a huge grin on my face since the moment you finished the amazing transformation of our living spaces. You finally made our house a home. I have always longed to have a house that felt warm, cozy and inviting, and now I have it. What I appreciate the most is how you used what we had and made it come to life, especially the painting my uncle did for us. It never really fit in our other home, and now it fits perfectly and can be appreciated so much more. For a stay at home mom who is in her home a lot these days with an infant, it makes being here so much more enjoyable. I woke up this morning and couldn't wait to see it again. It is so beautiful. You are both so talented and are such a joy to work with. Thank you for sharing your talents with us. I feel so lucky to have met you and I look forward to doing many more rooms in the future."
Kerry & David G.
"Having you decorate our home has been a life changing experience for us. We really appreciate your efforts and talent. You did a great job in all of our rooms. Your attention to detail is demonstrated by the way you took our favorite things and made them an integral part of each room's personality. You are very talented and we appreciate you. Thank you!"
Lynda & Bill A.
"Words cannot describe how happy we are with our new first floor including our very large, perplexing family room. You took a cold, uninviting room and turned it not only into a showplace, but a very functional, family-friendly space. Your insight into what we were looking for in a family room was right on target, and your idea of incorporating local vintage photography into the artwork is something all of our friends and family love. We feel so fortunate to have a piece of Angelo's artwork that was specially painted for our foyer. What a beautiful way to greet guests when they walk through the front door! Both of you were a complete joy to work with, and it was amazing how you were able to take both of our tastes and incorporate them into the family room and first floor. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, and we can't wait to do many more projects together in the future."
Sally & Ivan C.
"Ann and Angelo do awesome work. They not only create beautiful living spaces but present them in a very comfortable, warm, inviting and approachable way. Each time they have done work for us, it's been so exciting to see the final result and feel like we can just sit back, relax and truly live in yet another space that incorporates everything we love in a clean, uncluttered yet finished way."
Mary L. & Randy G.
"I was immediately drawn to the services Ann and Angelo provide upon seeing two of my neighbor's homes. I was impressed with their style range. It was refreshing to see they didn't have a standard look they impress upon their work. I was equally impressed with their ability to create a beautiful home environment that is very real. I don't believe many can bridge the gap between wow and real life the way they do."
"We live in New York but had seen Ann and Angelo's work in our relatives' homes in Florida. Sure, we could have hired someone in our area to help us through the building and decorating of our home but why look around when you've already found the perfect fit. Ann consulted with us for a year via phone and email through the entire building process of our home. She helped us not only with every single interior decision but with all the exterior decisions. It could not have been easier. There is tremendous value in making the right choices and spending money wisely and Ann not only prevented us from making mistakes but took us to an end result that far exceeds anything we could have dreamed up. Once the house was built, we flew Ann and Angelo up to fully decorate our home. They used what we already had first and then, shopped for all the finishing touches which was a lot since we moved from a much smaller home. They hit the nail on the head at every turn. Our home is our most favorite place to be and has become the favorite hangout of our family, friends and neighbors. There is nothing stuffy about the beauty they create. Among all the great decorating, our home has a heart. People do say 'wow' when they come over but they also say theya feel so at home and welcome and don't want to leave. There lies the reason we hired All About You and brought them to New York."
Denise & Tim O.
"They not only see the big picture but look down the road. I got the look I wanted without compromising classic and timeless elegance. I know my taste will edit over the years but I won't have to overhaul my home in the future to allow for it."
"Thank you so much, Ann & Angelo! We love our living room, kitchen and family room area. You did such a fantastic job - we really can't thank you enough! Our living room is so warm and welcoming that people comment all the time when they enter our home. The kitchen has the Tuscan Italian feel I've always wanted. Your attention to detail is amazing. We are so happy with the end result that we cannot wait to have you back to help with the rest of our house!!!"
Alison & Jao F.
"To say their talent far exceeds their rate is an understatement. These people know exactly what they are doing."
"Ann and Angelo, one word cannot describe my reaction/emotion when I saw the completed work you made to my home. It is awesome! You listened to what I liked for my home and what I did not like. Then, with your vision, you took me on a journey to capture the look I wanted. It's simplistic and reflects warm memories from all my travels--my passion. I am very pleased. I highly recommend you to anyone who is considering decorating their home."
"Wow, wow, wow, wow. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. I could not have imagined that our house could look like it does. We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and your vision. I did not know what to expect, and both Michael and I LOVE it. Charlie also had so much fun in the room and on the softer and more padded rug! I LOVE where his and Lilahs' books are and that there is a place for them in that room because we love to read to them. Thank you for all of your help and patience. We appreciate you and could never have gotten to this point without your help, enthusiasm, and motivation. It was so relaxing and delightful to come home to a lovely room for the first time ever. It is so warm/cozy without being cluttered or nick-nacky. Thank you for listening to what we said and making that part of our house a wonderful place in which to live. We love it!"
Natalie & Michael S.
"What a pleasure it's been to work with Ann and Angelo on furnishing and decorating my home. They made what appeared to be an overwhelming task an unbelievably easy experience. They did all the work! Their invaluable talent combined with their earnest desire to have the outcome reflect each owner's taste and wishes is exactly what I was looking for in a decorator. And on top of that, they were a lot of fun to work with! Congratulations Ann and Angelo on a job well done - I love my home!"
"Thank you so much for giving me the gift of my beautiful home! For 16 years I have lived in my house, but until now, I have never claimed it my as my refuge and my own. You are so wonderful to work with and you listened to what was important to me and you brought in the colors, fabrics and designs that complimented me. I appreciate and thank you."
"I can't thank you enough for the fabulous job you and Angelo have done on our home. I am still in awe and amazement over every single thing you did. I speak for myself and my family when I say we all truly love it! Most of all, I appreciate the passion and heart you put into your work. The amount of thought and concentration that went into every detail reflecting our personailty, style and wishes is incredibly apparent. I am so happy to have found you!"
"We hired Ann and Angelo prior to the transition into our new home. We wanted this home to reflect an elevated sense of our own personal style. And we are so proud of the results. We are surrounded by beautiful color and our belongings are displayed with care and purpose. Our home is so representative of us and the most beautiful place we have ever lived; far beyond what we could have imagined. It doesn't matter how unique your style is. Ann and Angelo can improve upon what you have without ever losing sight of what you love."
Brenda and Phillip S.
"We are so honored to say we are the only people we know who made it through a major renovation with no design dilemmas. My wife and I got Ann on board before our renovation plans were even finalized on paper and it's the best decision we ever made. From the selection of paint colors to flooring, plumbing fixtures to lighting fixtures to hardware to the decor after we moved in, there were no mishaps, second guesses, do-overs etc. Not only were all the design decisions right the first time but our home could not reflect the very eclectic taste of both my wife and I better. The only down side to this experience is how hard it is to go on vacation when it doesn't get any better than the home we live in."
Mike and Shelley S.
"My daughter and I appreciate every step Ann and Angelo took to make our house not only 'a home' but 'our home'. They have a rare talent and a vision to see things we couldn't. We never knew our home had such potential but they saw it and and brought it to life. We enjoy every single room and every little detail and still can't believe we live here!"
"What a treat to work with you both! You helped us turn our rooms from living spaces into treasured and favorite parts of our home! We loved and appreciated your great listening skills, wonderful shopping, and amazing sense of style!"
Kim and Ken R.
"As I write this, Ann and Angelo are still working in my house. I was pleased after their first hour. After four hours, I was amazed with what they did with my furniture, artwork and accessories...and now, I am ecstatic! It's like a whole new house inside. It's better than I could have imagined. Ann and Angelo are creative, efficient and two very nice people. They're better than the people on HGTV in my book."
"It truly is 'All About You.' The first thing that Ann does is listen. She asks questions. What are you trying to achieve? Where are you now? Where are you trying to get to? What is your budget? Decorating is easy with an unlimited budget. Ann makes it look like a million bucks on your budget. I love using her services. What she saved me way more than paid her fee. Oh, and just to top it all off, she is a pleasure to work with. Just another satisfied client."
"We have worked with Ann on a number of projects over the past several years, most recently a sizable renovation. She has been a tremendous asset (and timesaver) on every level...from the big picture decisions (exterior design and color) to the details (wall texture, interior colors, furnishings and more). Ann helped keep us on track, so in the end our vision became our reality. We are now finished with our renovation and are living in our dream home!"
Mary Pat and Kevin D.
"Hiring All About You was easily my best decision in 2003. I gave Ann an impossible task: I wanted different. I got different. I wanted to use existing furniture. She used existing furniture. I wanted color and got that too! Can't wait until we tackle the next room!"
"Quite often when you are working on a renovation you know exactly what you want. The problem is you just can't find it. It's really great to know you have a resource in All About You. From her initial visit, Ann knew exactly what we were trying to accomplish and added a few suggestions/enhancements we had not thought of. She also had the resources to bring our vision to reality. You just can't find that off the shelf. Thank you so much for completing the final touches, and getting us over our hurdle. We would highly recommend your services, and plan on contacting you with future challenges as they arise."
"Ann has done our home as well as my new office in downtown Orlando. We even sent her to Tennessee to work her magic in our daugther's new home. Her work is excellent and we are extremely pleased to be able to convey that to any interested parties. She easily and professionally blends her creativity with a very strong sense of managing her client's budget. There are never any surprises when you deal with Ann other than the very pleasant surprise you will experience when she has finished your project."
Gary and Pattsy H.
"Hiring the Ann & Angelo team is one of the best investments I have ever made. Every time I come home to my new look, I just have to smile. I still wake up each morning, look around and think Wow! This is mine. It's so me and I love it! Ann knew how to give just the right push to help me make decisions. The entire process was so smooth and easy. Plus, I saved hours of time and money that I would have wasted trying to do it myself. Ann and Angelo have a talent. They love styling. They enjoy their clients and it's evident. My advice is to book them before Oprah discovers them."
"We spent so much time and money trying to get the paint colors right in our house. After several quarts of paint and many trips to the store, we gave up and called you. In one hour, you had the perfect colors picked out for every room in our house. We went with all your picks and the result is nothing less than spectacular."
Brian and Trish L.
"You break the mould of what's expected from a designer. You are affordable. You listen. You work with what a person has. You are very conscious of budget and you get excited about what you do. You have taken a service that is thought to be for the affluent and made it attainable to the main stream. The results only look expensive!"
"You were excited about the possibilities my condo had to offer and that got me excited. I was so frustrated with the limitations of it's size, I considered selling. Through furniture placement and your suggestion of using paint color changes to define spaces, you took a tiny, non descript space and turned it into a home that oozes with character. Coming home from work is now a special treat. Thank you."
"We heard about you from several of our neighbors. After seeing the transformations in their homes, we were inspired to do something in ours. You gave our home a personality....ours! We were able to explain what we like but we could have never made it happen. You made a daunting task seem so easy. From paint colors to moving our things around to adding in some pieces that worked with what we had, you were efficient every step of the way. Thanks for really listening to us and giving us a result that looks like what we've been trying to convey for years."
John and Anne M.
"Your business is named appropriately! I consistently feel heard when I'm working with you. I wanted 'wow' but not 'staged' and you delivered. I feel it's much harder to work with what a person already has than to wipe the slate clean and buy everything new. You and Angelo manage to do this effortlessly. You took all that matters to me and turned my home into a book that tells the story of who I am. That's what true design is all about."
"Ann knows how to get inside your head and figure out your personal style. The results are absolutely amazing. She listened to our wishes and also opened our minds to ideas we would never have thought of on our own. She will always be on our team whenever a home project arises!"
Mary Louise and Paul S.
"The fee is reasonable. We consider our cost for the time and expertise money well spent!"
Elizabeth and Blaise B.
"The first time you came to my home, you were able to figure out exactly what I like and used what I had in my home to help choose the paint colors in each room. I immediately felt confident in your choices."
"Ann is great at working with what you already have and then offering choices of colors, fabrics, window treatment designs, etc. that pull everything together. She's great at shopping too! We loved everything she picked out."
Teresa and Scott F.
"It's still amazing to me that you simply picked out all new paint colors for each room and found proper homes for my furniture and accessory pieces yet it looks like such a major and expensive change has taken place. The home I was once embarrassed to open up to guests has become party central since your simple and affordable yet complicated and pricey looking transformation! I love my house!"
"My house was the fourth home in my neighborhood that Ann has decorated. What amazed me the most was how equally beautiful but diversely different each of our homes look, all reflecting the individual homeowners."
"Our experience with Ann and Angelo and All About You was amazing! We were moving across country and Ann was scheduled to help us establish our new home. We had to do much of the preliminary work over the phone. Ann immediately garnered our confidence in her talent, sensitivity, practicality and professionalism. We were inspired by her choice of colors for our new home and continue to just love them. I credit her extreme professionalism and ability to listen to our needs for a smooth transition in moving. Ann and Angelo worked quietly and diligently to restore order to our new home. They were so respectful of our family's needs and yet in one weekend had our new home beautifully put together. The comfort of watching our things go in unexpected and perfect places was extremely comforting and rewarding. We joked that they could never do a whole house in a weekend, let alone just one room, and they sure did!! Ann's talent for making decorating truly 'all about you' is incredible. Her color, design, and style choices are beautiful, warm and inviting and reflect our desires for our home. We have been extremely pleased with all the accessories. It was like Christmas for me with so many of the items she purchased being what I had been wanting for quite some time! Six months later we are still loving our home and all that Ann did to make it 'home' for us."
"Words simply can't express how happy we are with your work in our home! Most importantly, you tailored the decorating to suit our personal style and budget! When guests come over, they constantly compliment us on our home and those who saw it before you came along cannot believe it's the same place! We continue to hear how warm and inviting the atmosphere is. Thank you both so much for giving us a home to be proud of!"
Brian and Michele M.
