Today we’d like to introduce you to Angela Herrera.
Angela, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I was born and raised in Colombia; I lived there my entire life and I was actually a fashion designer and had my own clothing line called “Angela Herrera”. The clothing line belonged to a luxury boutique, “La Casa Rosada”, which was a concept I created.
This was my first real approach in the interior design world because the architects and I were in charge of the decoration. However, my life took a huge turn in a very short amount of time and I decided to move to Orlando, FL. My fiancé was living in Orlando and I was going back and forth between Colombia and the U.S, so I decided to risk everything. I left my company behind and my family in hopes of beginning a new life with my husband.
Long story short, after designing and remodeling our own home, a couple of friends that came over and saw what we had done with our place asked me to help them remodel their living room and daughter’s room. After that, a family member also asked me to create a playroom for her three daughters. At first, I only did hand-painted murals and eventually, I became more recognized and new clients began to show up.
Never in a million years did I imagine I would have my own interior design company.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The most challenging part has definitely been that our company was never planned. We’ve had to manage everything on our own since day one. This has been a learning experience for my husband and I.
The one thing that has always been easy is that we enjoy what we do, and we feel extremely proud of each project when we finish and go back and review it.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
At AH Design Studio, we design residential and commercial homes. Since we’re located in one of the most tourist-driven cities in the world, designing vacation home rentals has become one of our primary services. Investors from different countries get in touch with us to decorate their vacation homes with Disney and Universal Studios inspired themes. Designing vacation homes has definitely helped our company gain a lot more visibility here in Orlando.
One of our main services is designing and creating 100% hand-painted wall murals, which is definitely one of the best services we offer that makes us stand out from many other interior design companies.
We offer unique designs to each of our clients, focusing on particular details. This allows us to create a brand new concept that adapts to their personal preferences and needs.
We are also recognized for our human touch. We like to connect and understand our customer’s needs and what they look forward to with our company. The best part about having a great communication with our clients is the special bond that is created.
Our job allows us to transform many people’s lives by creating delightful spaces where many wonderful moments will be spent.
We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
For us, success is being able to do what we love, earning what we consider is fair, enjoying the process while we do it, and helping others by converting the space they have into the place of their dreams.: Whether it is for personal enjoyment or to make their rental business a success.
