Creative Director | Morrone Interiors Founder | Bespoke Furniture
From the minute you meet Audrey Morrone, you get the sense of fun and style she brings to each project and it’s clear why she has become one of the most in-demand designers in Central Florida. Audrey is approachable and strongly believes that building client relationships through exceptional service is as important as the innovative designs she provides. Sophisticated
taste, flawless execution, and her ability to understand her client’s unique needs and desires set her apart from other designers. From the initial concept of the design Audrey is there each step of the way. She leads a team of brilliant designers that are always looking at innovative ways to enhance the client experience.
With over 15 years of experience, Audrey is connected and is able to source the perfect pieces from hundreds of different vendors and has recently opened her flagship shop Bespoke Furniture bringing access to curated furniture and accessories to everyone, not just design clients. With her design work, she guides each client in selecting just the right lighting, accents, and furnishings that will capture a client’s vision and blend it with functionality. Whether it’s traditional or modern, Audrey and the Morrone Interiors team utilize cutting-edge technology to provide drawings and previews that allow a client to see and adjust, in real time, how their space will look and feel.
Last year, Audrey took home multiple awards as well as being voted by our Orlando Magazine readers to be the number one interior design firm in Orlando. She also won the First Place Award for Design Remodel with the Greater Orlando Builders Association, as well as the Grand Prize in Design Specialty for her project 1520; which also happens to be her personal residence. Audrey transformed the 1925 Mediterranean into what she calls modern whimsical. She rebuilt from the ground up, taking the home down to the studs and managing the full renovation herself. She then went on to win the Major Achievement Award in Design, from the Greater Orlando Builders Association.
When we asked Audrey what is it that drives her to be the best she answered, “Passion. It would be easy to say that I love beautiful things, and beautiful rooms, who doesn’t, but that isn’t what drives me the most; it’s creating amazing spaces for my clients – homes that are going to house so many memories. Every individual that I work with is unique so their home should be too. I love what I do, and I feel that it shows in our designs.”
