Ron Trivone is an expert at capturing intangible feelings and incorporating them into interior design. Ron’s cutting-edge style and attention to detail compliment every space he’s touched. With a love for interior design and a belief that everything is art, Ron is motivated by the excitement and the emotional unveiling of the final product.
“For my clients, first, I capture the feelings individually or collectively, considering their wants and needs. Then I infuse them with my vision and the latest innovations and trends. It’s important for me to get to know my clients and build meaningful relationships because projects take months to complete, so we get to know each other pretty well.”
In his own Miami home, Ron designed his space with a focus on aestheticism and functionality. Ron’s layered structured materials and textured elements play a vital role in using warm woods, dark colors, and cooler materials. This technique creates a seamless flow and integrates the interior and exterior elements and vibe. Ron feels that great interior design tells your story. “Your home, when designed right, should look and feel like you. It should represent who you are.”
Ron’s use of high quality, unique materials create a “style of life” environment for his clients. He uses elements such as textured fabrics for window treatments and furniture, accessories to give height and pull elements and materials together. The most essential element is the lighting.
“I am obsessed with lighting. Lighting is the key to amazing design and sets the tone and mood of the space.”
Ron delivers a quality finish to every place he designs. One design that stands out for him was completed a few years after he finished design school. It was a home in Hollywood, Florida, for two brothers. Since then, both brothers have married and each have their Family and I have designed both of their new homes.
When designing, Ron begins by looking at the architectural elements that stand out naturally. Such features include, a breathtaking view, a fireplace, or floor to ceiling windows to bridge the exterior with the interior. From there, Ron builds out and designs a strong symmetrical balance to create a perfect harmony between the structure, lighting, and details.
Covid 19 changed the way we live and for most people that involves spending extra time at home. “This has impacted the way I think about design and functionality.” This includes building and re-designing spaces to set the tone for a work / life balance. Some examples include the importance of a work zone at home. This could mean finding an un-used spare bedroom or dining room. Creating an outside space is equality important to kick back and relax.

How do you begin to redesign a space? What do you use as inspiration?
First, I capture my clients’ feelings individually or collectively, considering their needs and wants, then I infuse them with my vision and the latest innovation and trends.
What was the feeling you were trying to invoke with your own home?
This was a little personal for me. I wanted to design our own space, and also use this as my business card. Both aestheticism and functionality have an essential place in our home. Layering structured materials and textured elements play a key role in the use of warm woods, dark colors, and cooler materials. This creates a seamless flow and integrates the interior and exterior elements and vibe.
What pieces or elements of design do you think are necessary for every home?
This is selective for each project, as there are different visions and taste levels. Common examples of elements that I consistently play with are Textured fabrics, both for window treatments and furniture. Accessories to give height and pull elements and materials together. But most of all, lighting! I am obsessed with lighting! Lighting is the key to amazing design and sets the tone and mood of the space.
Where does your love for interior design stem from?
Design comes from love and passion. What keeps me going is the excitement and emotional moment that stems from the result when we turn over the client’s final project. The joy and gratitude are my biggest reward!
Where do you find your staple pieces? Do you have a “favorite” boutique or store?
I have several “favorite” places. This depends on the style or vibe I need to create and the client’s budget. I have my “go-to” vendors that I have filtered through the years to deliver the best and deliver to my standards.
What was the first thing you designed that made you feel official?
Well, that’s a tough one! I always felt and feel like all projects are my WOW moment. But if I had to pick one, it was a few years after I finished design school. A home in Hollywood, Florida, for two brothers, we still speak, both married with families and new homes that I designed for both families. Design has always been a passion. As a 4-year-old, my Mom tells the story of me grabbing a paintbrush and painting the outside deck because I was not happy with the color. Ha! Even then, I was a meticulous perfectionist!
How did covid affect your designs? Did you see any increase in people wanting to redesign their homes?
Covid 19 changed the way we live and for most people that involves spending extra time at home. This has impacted the way I think about design and functionality. This includes building and re-designing spaces to set the tone for a work / life balance. Some examples include the importance of a work zone at home. This could mean finding an un-used spare bedroom or dining room. Creating an outside space is equality important to kick back and relax.
How did you get into designing editorials?
I always believed everything in life is art. How you dress, how you live, it all reflects your personal design style! Fashion designers have always been intrigued with my sense of design and connecting that with fashion was a perfect marriage.
What elements are essential for you to convey emotion through your interior and set designs?
Always have a clear point of view, always communicate your vision, and finally…. Always “Compliment a space, never Complicate.”
Where did you grow up, and how did your childhood influence your career in design?
Growing up in Long Island, New York, in an Italian family, you always had “that room” that was over decorated, and we could never go into, it was like a museum. It made me curious on why and what this room had that was so special. only on special occasions and holidays where we allowed to use or be part of that space. From then on, I was fascinated and obsessed with how I dressed or how I looked. This played a big part on selecting colors. When my parents visited friends and family homes I would look around and question why they had things in certain spaces. I still do that! (chuckles).
Do you usually work alone or with a team?
We are a small boutique interior design firm. I mostly work alone to build the vision and overall concept for my clients…. but of course, we all need those extra hands and eyes to make it all happen!
When designing, what elements do you begin with? What is normally the “finishing touches” on a project?
Looking into each project, I focus on each architectural element. Then I design a strong symmetrical balance to create perfect harmony and rhythm. when I do my final walk through before the client reveal, I make sure my lighting, pillows, and details are perfectly aligned and in place.
When designing a photoshoot set, how do you prepare, and where does the inspiration come from?
Getting to know the vibe of the style out is essential in setting the stage for the photo shoot. Working with the photographer and the producer allows me to have an explosive vision in making the concept come alive. I place close emphasis on the details, the time of the day for the shoot, the season of the year and how it plays with the indoors and outdoors. This is important in telling the story and committing to the overall vibe.
