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 Southhampton, NY sweetheart, making Nashville their new home. Laret is a runner, 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

Meet Kat. She’s an almost Native Nashvillian, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga graduate, and our office fashionista! Kat is very excited to be working at Casella Interiors and being exposed to the wide variety of both commercial and residential projects. Her interests outside of design include obsessing over skincare, traveling, going to spin and kickboxing classes, and searching for the city’s best happy hours and restaurants.
