With the new year comes new beginnings, and that's why it's the perfect time to visit Diane Agricola. She owns Agricola Redesign and A Village Gift Shop at the Century House, which offer lots of new beginnings for your home, wardrobe and even your career.


Agricola's business model has three arms: 1) Agricola Redesign, which works on both residential and commercial projects. 2) The Agricola Redesign Training Specialists (ARTS) programs, which provide courses and certification to interior designers. 3) A Village Gift Shop at the Century House, which features home decor, gift items, and wardrobe accessories.


The offices for Agricola Redesign are located in A Village Gift Shop at the Century House, a historic location in Glendale with a 60-year provenance in the community. The Village Gift Shop at the Century House is staffed by Agricola's design team who assist shoppers with everything from decorating ideas to help finding unique gift items.


Opened in 2001, the Agricola Redesign team continues to earn numerous design awards for their work. "Agricola Redesign has a different approach to working with our clients; we want to see what you currently have and then work with that first," explains Agricola. "The most common misconception is that you have to throw out all of your furniture and buy new," says Agricola. "But fortunately, it does not have to be this way. I can find creative solutions to your home decorating woes."

It's all about embracing the home that you have, Agricola says. "Everyone has acquired unique pieces of furniture through the years through blended families and heirlooms passed through the generations," she adds. "If you can incorporate these items into your interior design, the results may surprise you."


And if you think having an interior designer may be costly, think again. "I'm able to work within the parameters of any budget," she says. "Any project can start with a reasonably priced consult and then go to an hourly rate."


Agricola is also associated and active with IDS The Interior Design Society, ADE Association of Design Education, and RESA Real Estate Staging Association. In fact, she's teaching a five-day certified course for those interested in becoming involved with Interior Design. According to Agricola, her ARTS programs are designed to promote and enhance the interior redesign and home staging industry through quality training for her students.


The 2013 Class Dates for 5-Day Redesign and Staging Class are:
• February 11 - 15, 2013
