Every relationship in life is about getting your needs met.
Rose Giroso doesn’t want to just meet your needs.
She wants to far exceed them.

Everything in life radiates energy. Rose Authentica’s Rose Giroso designs with this in mind. She brings inanimate space to life with an organic, macro approach infused with her unique creative process. Rose acknowledges the notion that a true designer leaves no trace of herself in her work; instead, she considers her clients’ lifestyle, character and essence and balances each personality with tailored design. Rose Authentica, a boutique interior design firm, specializes in holistic home design.

Authentic design takes on a life of it’s own—a life that begins with a single idea. Rose draws inspiration from everyday images, be it her child’s artwork, a fallen leaf or a rich, beautiful fabric. But what’s most important to Rose is that her work inspires you—be it in the way sunlight spills over a decadent mahogany table or the way you feel when you enjoy a glass of fine wine, barefoot and natural, on a carefully chosen, custom, vibrant rug. Intrigued by all the ways design influences the human experience, Rose is exploring neuroarchitecture, which explores the relationship between the brain and artificially created environments.
