It’s always good to know a little about the person you’re about to hire and invite into your home. Here’s a little bio about myself. I’ve worked long and hard to be where I am today and I am an Expert in my field. Come read!

My name is Donna Frasca and I’m an Interior Designer/Color Expert who is highly specialized in choosing color palettes for luxury homes, sub specializing in homes that have open floor plans.

I am the owner of Decorating by Donna, which is my company that specializes in JUST color. Featured in Charlotte Style Magazine, the 42nd Annual Color Forecast Issue of Paint & Decorating Retailer Magazine, enLIGHTenment Magazine, Ballantyne Magazine and STIR from Sherwin Williams, you can read about some of my Color Palettes and see what I have to say about color trends and forecasting.

With an extensive career in Graphics and Interior Decorating and Design, I am highly trained to make sure the right colors go into your home. If you live in Charlotte North Carolina, particularly South Charlotte, I would love to design a color scheme for you! If not, I have many Virtual clients all over the country that have loved my Virtual Color Consultation service.

Background

Knowing I was destined for the Interior Design field, I accomplished a degree in Interior Decorating and Design, with honors. From the leanings of art, furniture, how to choose the right fabric for it’s application to the not so fun but oh so important aspect of calculating rolls of wallpaper and even figuring out how many porcelain tiles are needed for a kitchen floor or backsplash. These are just some of the wonders of Interior Decorating and Design and I loved it.

My design career included working as a Ceramic Decorator, Graphic Designer for several Long Island newspapers, Color Matcher for a wallpaper New York company and then progressed into an official Interior Designer for several Interior Design firms in New York and Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until I worked in the R&D department of a wallpaper design company in New York that I knew I had to pinpoint my career specifically to color. A Color Specialist was born!

Throughout my 30 years of field experience I became an expert in color. “I’ve noticed that there is a huge niche for just choosing color for inside homes, particularly homes that have an open floor plan.” It’s quite an undertaking to be able to design a complete color scheme for a large home. The colors have to flow from one room to another otherwise your home can look like a patchwork quilt. 

I have a degree in Interior Decorating and Design, Color Certifications, two Reiki Certificates of Achievements and I’m highly intuitive which is why my Virtual Color Consultations are so successful, particularly the clients who have special needs or are interested in Holistic Color for their home.
