If you don’t already know who Marisol Gullo of Not Too Shabby is, let me introduce you to her. Marisol Gullo, along with her husband Tony Gullo has owned and operated Not Too Shabby Interiors for over 13 years, with two locations located in Miramar Beach and Inlet Beach Florida. Marisol is a woman who wears many hats. An attorney by trade, Marisol’s real passion has always been interior design. She was also the 2017 South Walton Artist of the Year. Marisol’s eye for interior design is impeccable, and we were lucky enough for her to let us tag along with her on her latest interior design job in Kaiya on 30A, along the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast.
“So Marisol, where did the inspiration for this job come from,” we asked. “When it comes to forward-thinking interior design, adaptability and timelessness are two key factors that can guarantee a home will look just as current years from now as it does today,” said Marisol. “One of my favorites is a contemporary style. By borrowing elements from several prominent styles and combining them into a harmonic whole, contemporary interiors stay current even as trends move on,” she said.

Marisol’s interior designs are truly breathtaking. She seems to really have a knack for figuring out which pieces are best suited for her projects, The visuals that she creates are like candy for the eye. It’s amazing how she can overwhelm the senses without overwhelming the space with an abundance of pieces. So we asked her what her thought process is when designing each room in a house. “It’s all about balance for me. I like to choose a star product to be the feature as the main focal point of the room. Then I use other items to blend into the backdrop to create a calming vibe rather than a cluttered one. So, when you are doing a more contemporary look, many times less is more,” said Marisol.
As well as the soothing paint colors she has used on this gorgeous home, we also noticed the incredible selections of wallcovering Marisol used. So we asked her if this was something she does frequently for her clients. This is what she had to say about wallcoverings. “It’s not something that I do on every project although I adore finding and selecting the most amazing wallcovering I can find. I believe wallcoverings add depth and style to spaces. In general, patterns, colors and even fabrics create an effect of increasing space or at least a clear point of attention. With that being said, the most important part of my process is to understand and know my client. It’s only after I spend time with them that I can start to formulate a plan of action for their space based on their likes and dislikes. After all, this is their home and their desires. It is my mission as a designer to help them to bring those objectives to life.”
