Valerie owner of Decorating Den in Verona is a true pleasure to help with any home interior decorating needs. She will work within your budget and present beautiful options for any interior design project. I have used her for many projects over the years and have always been very happy.

I am totally loving both new rooms. You have no idea how you have changed my life – in such a good way. The little bedroom isn’t even done yet but I am already enjoying the whole back of the house. Re-doing all of these rooms is my one self-indulgence.

We recently decided to do some redecorating in our home.  We chose to call on Valerie Ruddy of Decorating Den, who has done a great job for us in the past, to assist us.  We decided to move my husband’s home office to a smaller bedroom in order to free up the larger bedroom for guests.  Valerie and her excellent team worked with us to come up with a comprehensive plan that fit our budget and met our needs. Her hands on approach meant that she was here with us every step of the way.  As a result, we have a beautifully decorated guest room with new carpet, paint and window treatments.  The smaller bedroom was maximized to provide as much space as possible for my husband’s office… We loved working with Valerie, and are really pleased with her work. I would highly recommend her.

Debbie - N. Caldwell, NJ


I wanted to thank you for the great job you did for us! Everything looks amazing! Your taste and project management skills are impeccable!

Inna - Livingston, NJ

We love Decorating Den, and we especially love the work of Valerie Ruddy.  Valerie had terrific suggestions about furniture, fabrics, window treatments, rugs, wall colors, you name it. Most important for us, she was very respectful of our budget to “spruce up” our downstairs living area, and didn’t put any pressure on us to purchase things that we couldn’t comfortably afford. She also saved us a lot of time. Great job! We highly recommend Valerie and Decorating Den.

Decorating Den Interiors did a wonderful job with my master bedroom and basement.  Valerie was a pleasure to work with. The design turned out beautiful and the service was outstanding.  I couldn’t be more pleased.

Patricia - Verona, NJ

Valerie –  I really am happy with all you have done to help me make the dining room and living room so lovely.  I only wish I could do the rest of the house sooner than later.  I will give you a call as soon as I can to continue our awesome collaboration! 

Mary - Verona, NJ

Hi Valerie,

I love it!!! It looks beautiful! Great job!! Can’t wait to get started on the rest of the place, I will keep you posted. Thanks again!

Thank you so very much for the gorgeous room you have created for our little sailor 🙂 We appreciate that you were able to work with some of the existing elements in the room and match everything so perfectly to create his own little cabin. We put up the bed guards and after he was sound asleep we left and believe it or not he slept through the night all by himself for the first time in exactly 18 months 🙂 Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!

My office has never looked better … thank you!!

Rick - Montclair, NJ

Valerie recently helped us design a family/game room in the basement of our townhouse. We had the games and the walls but not much else. Valerie created a very inviting, beautiful and extremely functional space. We had never worked with a designer before but she made the process easy. She totally got “us” and was respectful of our budget. She coordinated all the construction and deliveries and made sure that everything was perfect. We’ve received tons of compliments on the room and we look forward to many fun parties in our new space.

She also did a “face-lift” on our powder room turning it into an exquisite gem of a bathroom with elegant wallpaper, new fixtures and accessories.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use Valerie on any decorating project in the future. I only wish I had meet her sooner!

Beth - Roseland, NJ

I had the great pleasure of working with Valerie Ruddy of Decorating Den on my kitchen project. Valerie is incredibly knowledgeable; about materials, colors, furniture, and design aesthetic. She was able to quickly and intuitively understand what I wanted to achieve and worked with me on bringing the ideas to reality. She is easy to work with, extremely clear in her methods of design and clear in her ability to share her knowledge, ideas and design solutions with me. Valerie is also a design visionary, let her see and imagine for you! It was such a pleasure working with someone so professional, and talented!!!!
