Toni was born in Trieste, Northern Italy. Her real name is Maria Antonietta. After starting school in the United States, her name was translated to Marie Antoinette, hence the name of her design firm, Marie Antoinette Interiors. As a teen, friends began to call her “Toni” as a nickname and it stuck! Toni is forever thankful to her parents for blessing her with such a beautiful name to carry into her work and her life.
She lives in Sunol, California, in the 130 year old stone barn she and her husband of 46 years lovingly restored themselves for their family.
