Deborah J. Carducci Founder and CEO of Villa Lusso

Deborah J. Carducci is the founder and CEO of Villa Lusso, a luxurious line of Italian scented candles capturing the love and warmth of the Italian culture.  As she developed  her successful interior design business, Carducci Design Group, Inc., of over 19 years, Deborah's philosophy has stayed the course - life's luxuries come from family traditions, friends, great food, wine and laughter.

Building upon her Italian heritage with her grandparents emigrating to the United States through Ellis Island, her connections to family in Italy were a part of her from birth.  Family and friends gathered every Sunday in her parents' home with the aroma of Italian food.  Memories of hearing Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Perry Como to name a few made for family singing and dancing in the living room.  Many trips to Italy later, Deborah has centered this new business venture around her Italian culture and passion for living well.

As a successful business entrepreneur, Ms. Carducci made strategic career decisions and pursued the necessary education so that she could compete in the Boston design environment.  After 15 years in corporate support roles in finance, sales and marketing in various industries like biotech, television broadcast and technology, Ms. Carducci made a courageous career change to pursue her passion for creating beautiful spaces - a dream she cherished from early childhood.  At 30, she pursued courses in interior design at Newbury College, Boston, Massachusetts while continuing to work full time.

In order to learn the business from a "hands on" perspective, she initially worked for a decorator, and then launched her custom window treatment business.  With experience in textiles and sewing, her business became a success and evolved into the full service interior design firm as it is today. Clients frequently say they "love coming home" - a testament to Ms. Carducci's commitment to her clients and what works for them and their lifestyle.
