About Casa Santi and the Santified Team!
Welcome to Casa Santi Interior Design, LLC, a look at our philosophy and the way I, David Santiago, define style.
With over 20 years of experience in the design industry, combined with a sophisticated classical background, I am eager to share with you the possibilities you can achieve within your residential or commercial space. I have a practical and common-sense approach to how I work:
Assess the project, your needs, style, function of the tasks at hand with the proposed budget.
With my design expertise, I apply my traditional, unexpected, curation signature to achieve a cohesive successful concept, ultimately defining my client...YOU!
Design is about telling a story through visually appealing concepts and décor, most importantly with form and function.
Let's meet, get to know each other, explore ideas and have a discussion about Interior design.
Embrace a new change in your residential or commercial space and become Santified!

David is known as the “Prince of Wallpaper” highlighting his ability to master the art of wallpaper application on every project.

Currently, David continues to grow as a brand ambassador and give back through the media platforms as a design and lifestyle correspondent for "The Donna Drake Show" on CBS NY and guest designer on the NBC hit television series “George To The Rescue".
Hospidential: Hospitality and Residential
David Santiago, owner & founder of Casa Santi, LLC,
debuts his Hospidential concept in 2019; a unique fusion of unexpected and curated styles, merging Hospitality and Residential.
Hospidential caters to clients who seek the unique creative details that make a space really special, blending a traditional sensibility, combined with form and function. It made sense to expand Casa Santi, LLC into production, brand ambassadorships and artists representation, unifying all creative platforms from Hospitality to Residential, achieving the Hospidential Experience.
Fun fact about David: He is an accomplished classical opera singer, an alumni of Mannes College of Music. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and the New York City Opera, among others. Whether staging a design project, serving the design community as an active member or performing, David’s integrity, passion and talent always shine through.
