I am a self-proclaimed renaissance guy in progress, with a hipster disposition! I own two businesses, DecorLink specializing in Interior Improvements and Regional Franchise Developer for Decor&You an Interior Decorating Company. One business satisfies my creative side, allowing me to work with my hands and directly create beautiful and functional interior spaces. The other business allows me to utilize my leadership and business skills to help others who have a passion for interior decorating turn it into a successful career. I am very fortunate to get to do what I love every day for a living.
I studied Interior Design at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, New York. I also studied Business Management at Queens College, Queens, New York. I am happily married to Giovanna since 1991 and have two children, Victoria and Massimo. When I am not workingI enjoy spending quality time doing indoor and outdoor activities with my family, going to the theater, working on home improvement projects, learning new technology skills, going for walks with Romeo the family dog , gardening and cooking.
As the business owner for DecorLink I get to help my clients achieve a space they love that is functional and beautiful. With over 25 years’ experience in the interior improvement industry my clients can relax because they are in good hands. I understand doing interior improvement projects can be stressful so my primary focus is to make the experience as stress free and fun as possible. Showing up on time, working clean, open communication, sticking to original estimate and exceeding expectations ensures a highly satisfied client. DecorLink specializes in Custom Closet Organizing Systems, Window Treatments and Interior Improvements.
In January, 2004 I started my business as Regional Franchise Developer for Decor&You. Capitalizing on over 25 years of successful retail and business management experience in the home decorating and improvement industry, as well as an educational background in both Interior Design and Business Management, I assumed responsibility for the growth and development of a geographical territory through recruiting and assisting others to build their franchise units. My mission is to help people who have a passion for Interior Decorating follow their dream and turn it into a successful career. As Regional Franchise Developer, my role is personal mentor and business coach to a Team of Interior Decorators in the north east area, allowing their entrepreneurial and innovative spirit to flourish. Decor&You franchisees have the on-going protection of being in business for themselves, but not by themselves. By carefully following the proven DecorPlan™ system, anyone can fulfill their dream of being his or her own boss and achieving success in the interior decorating business.

Forget the stereotype of the old fashioned 'do it my way' decorator. My clients use phrases like "…you made it so easy…” and "…never could have done this myself…” to describe our working relationship. But, be warned -- the experience can be addictive! Whether you need a single window treatment or are decorating your whole home or business, it is always about your style and your budget. I come to your home, office or business to assess the space and learn about your needs. We'll work one-on-one to translate your vision into surroundings that achieve your decorating dreams and make you truly love the space you’re in! Click here to learn more about me!
Paul Allegro was the ultimate professional....As soon as he walked in the door and began offering ideas on how to maximize space and the design, we knew we were going with Decor & You. On top of that, he ordered, had materials delivered and installed within 4 days. We couldn't have had a better experience! I would definitely recommend Decor & You to anyone who needs closet organization, window treatments, etc. He does it all.....Awesome!!! Jerry G. in South River, NJ
We've had best experience hiring this professional. Excellent in giving detailed quote including the design and wireframe diagrams, worked with us to fit it in our budget. Finished the project with great quality and on the money with their time estimate. Always was on time, very professional and thorough. Quality of the work and material is one of the best we have seen. All we can say is, we are very happy that we went with Decor & You, and will definitely use them for future projects and also highly recommend them to our friends. Sivakumar N. in Plainsboro, NJ
Decor & You service was outstanding. Paul provided on-time, top quality service for a fair price. The vertical blinds were quickly and professionally installed and the old blinds neatly wrapped up for disposal. Could not have asked for more. John K. in Pennington, NJ
