The Bungalow – Where It All Started

The-Bungalow

My love for beautiful things started at a young age. My most treasured childhood memories were spent endlessly searching for the perfect sea shell on a warm summer day, under my grandmother’s quilting loom mesmerized by the maze of stitches and helping cook infamous Italian Sunday dinners that had more courses than people at the table. After graduating from Rutgers University I pursued a career in marketing, working in various sectors of the industry from visual merchandising at H&M to brand management for Fortune 500 companies. The industry allotted me the creativity I craved and organizational structure my Type A personality jived with.

Then five years ago Billy and I purchased a tiny broken down bungalow in a small bay community on the east coast. The house was in shambles. Moldy sheetrock, ancient electrical wiring, dysfunctional plumbing and floors that had been mistaken for a litter box sent most potential buyers running; but we saw good bones, a price tag we were comfortable with and endless opportunities. On a shoestring budget we transformed the broken down bungalow into a home for how we live and what we love.

and dinner parties are hosted frequently.

Friends and family started asking for my help decorating their own homes. From kitchens to nurseries to holiday dinners, I designed spaces based on comfort, function and beauty. I fell completely in love with the process and DiCorcia Interior Design organically grew from there.
