"We want to help create a home that is unique to the individual. Not having a formula for any one project — each is a one of a kind place — specific to the tastes and needs of the people we often have the good fortune to not only call clients — but good friends."
Full service interior design from traditional to contemporary
Violante & Rochford, a Santa Fe, New Mexico based interior design firm working extensively throughout the United States. Consisting of Michael Violante and Paul Rochford, the duo, who is also a married couple, offer full-service interior design services, from traditional to contemporary. Using their combined experience of 38 years, Michael and Paul always design homes that reflect the personalities of their clients and execute their visions flawlessly. Their distinctive style often uses art as a focal point for projects, and employs neutral palettes with bold but chic pops of color. They are lovers of light, nature, open spaces, grand vistas and mixing antique pieces with new items and artworks.
The duo has a new retail shop, which also houses their design office and beautifully curated showroom. Located in a historic Santa Fe Arts and Crafts home, the shop is adorned with art and eclectic treasures from all over the world. Upstairs, Paul and Michael have the largest library of materials in Santa Fe.
