LARET CASELLA

Principal, NCIDQ, LEED AP

Meet Laret. Our fearless leader! As passionate about design as she is the Tennessee Titans! After graduating from Auburn University’s esteemed School of Architecture with a Bachelor of Interior Design (War Eagle!), Laret left her hometown of Montgomery, Alabama and moved north with her Southampton, NY sweetheart, making Nashville their home. Laret is a fitness enthusiast, artist, art lover, and avid sports fan. She loves spending time with friends and hanging out with her husband, Jeff, and their son, Finn.

RACHEL CAPPADONA

Senior Interior Designer, NCIDQ

Meet Rachel. From an early age she spent many outings with her father, an architect, looking at projects that were in process and cultivated an eye for design. Rachel is a native upstate New Yorker who found herself graduating from interior design school in the South at O’More College of Design. She can’t get enough of the nitty gritty aspects of design, from initial schematics to tracking down where furniture shipments are in real time, Rachel takes pride in making sure every project runs smoothly. In her spare time, she loves road trips, Indian food, and spending time with her family.

KATHERINE ELMS

Project Designer, Leed Green Associate

Meet Kat. She’s an almost Native Nashvillian, and began her design career after graduating from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  During the five plus years that Kat has been with Casella Interiors, she has been exposed to the wide variety of both commercial and residential projects and continues to be excited to push the details of all things design. Outside of the office, you can find her trying new restaurants around town, playing tennis or practicing yoga, and browsing through antique stores.

KATE SMITH

Junior Designer

Meet Kate. Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, (yes, she’s a real unicorn!) Kate earned her Interior Architecture degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She moved to the northeast for a brief time after college, but then boomeranged right back after realizing Nashville was the place to be. Kate’s eye for detail and amazing organizational skills make her a great team member! When she’s not rapidly drafting you can find her dreaming of building furniture, snuggling with her dog or binging on a great movie.
