Virginia and Jessica’s approach begins with a deep dive into how each client dreams of living. Getting to know their clients intimately, thoroughly understanding their wish lists and worries, allows Toledo Geller to create a unique, luxury living space that truly reflects who they are—and what they love.

With their mastery of both the design and construction process, Toledo Geller partners with architects and builders from the blueprint stage to completion, providing project management and development oversight. The team works tirelessly to ensure the integrity of each project from start to finish—intent on not just meeting, but exceeding, clients’ expectations.

TG Team

Virginia Toledo

Virginia founded Toledo Geller in 2006 after recognizing a need in the luxury residential market for a firm with specialized knowledge in both the design and construction process. Formally trained in interior design, she also gained invaluable experience working along side her father, a general contractor, on construction sites.

A native of Brooklyn, Virginia is a mother who loves historical fiction and entertaining in her 1920’s Craftsman style New Jersey home, which she is constantly updating.

Jessica Geller

The experience of renovating a children’s hospital playroom sparked Jessica’s decision to switch careers from social work to interior design. Her intuitive design sensibility is both innate and learned from experience in the field, and she gravitates towards the perfectly imperfect—such as introducing a color that seems “off” but magically completes the design.

A mother of three, Jessica moved to Essex Fells within a year of renovating her 1850s Hoboken townhouse to embark on transforming a 1920s center hall colonial into the perfect cozy home for spending time with her family.

Janine Colicchio, Junior Designer

Janine serves as the Lead Designers’ “right hand” on any and every aspect of the studio’s projects – from creating concept boards and proposals to lending support on installation days and photoshoots. Following several college internships at women-owned design firms and a stint as a design consultant at Restoration Hardware, she is inspired to be working with and learning from two incredibly successful women and watching them grow their business.

Organized and upbeat, Janine is passionate about art, the interior design industry, and her co-workers, who consistently uplift and support one another. When she’s not in the studio, she can be found watching Star Wars movies with her fiancé, exploring new downtown areas, spending time with family and friends, or enjoying a cup of coffee and a good book with one of her three cats purring on her lap.

Valentina Ruby, Project Manager

Valentina oversees the execution of the interior design projects that TG’s talented team imagines – with plenty of laughs and good humor thrown in. A classically trained graphic designer who achieved her lifelong dream of becoming a creative director, she decided to pivot to her second passion: design/build/renovation.

Favorite things about her job include watching 2D ideas turn into jaw-dropping 3D magic before her eyes; her coworkers; and the office’s Keurig frother. She finds inspiration in nature and the arts and looks for the extraordinary in the ordinary. Passionate about her faith, family, animal rights, earth preservation, and really good dark chocolate, it’s no surprise Valentina enjoys spending downtime with family and friends and hiking with her best pup – followed by a great cup of tea and quiet time with God.

Mary Ann, Project Coordinator

Whatever is needed at the moment, Mary Ann handles it. Her resume includes a successful career working in the A&R departments of Columbia Records and Arista Records and inventing The StrollAway, an over-the door storage hanger for strollers. Loyal and compassionate with a self-deprecating sense of humor, she loves working with the diverse TG team to continuously improve processes and work smarter. Thrilled to be part of and witness the Lead Designers’ creative vision coming to life, she appreciates being in an environment where there is always something new to learn.

A total music nerd, Mary Ann’s inspirations include live music, New York City, the ballet at Lincoln Center, and scrolling through beautiful interiors on Instagram. A mom of three football-playing sons, she’s become a fan by default. She also cooks and rides her bike to unwind.
