Home & Soul
"My mission is to contribute to creating more positive energy in our world.
Through my work, I make a difference by utilizing my talents to help others improve their lives,
share ideas and resources that help build harmonious, mindful environments, and hope I can be
of service to those in need in whatever way I can assist.
Serene Home Soul is aligned with non-profits doing work we strongly believe in and supporting
Charities that provide assistance in times of disaster, in areas of conservation and education.
The sales of our products and services benefit not only the family owned businesses we work with,
but additionally we Give Back on a regular basis in support of these charities.
We'll soon launch a page highlighting reputable organizations and providing links for year round giving.
We believe in positive affirmation and know that together we can build environments that support equality, peace, abundance, and joy for all humankind. Ultimately our collective success serves the greater good,
our environment and the wildlife we share the planet with."
"My company's name has changed several times as we evolved through stages of growth.
Originally I named it 'A Floral Fantasy' , then added 'Gift Basket Delights', which grew into
Designs By Dia, and rolled into GCDesigns! In recent years, with a deeper appreciation for how absolutely Blessed my life is with serenity, I realized how important is for me to share this sense of tranquility with those whose lives I touched. And so I renamed my company one last time - 'Serene Home & Soul'.
May we forever find a sense of calm, peace, and serenity in our lives."

How may we be of service?
Each year we select a charity organization to support, and commit to donating a % of all product sales and services.
From November 2020 - December 2021, we've selected St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
My father, Elia Carlo 'Charles' Rapagna, recently lost his battle with cancer, and this was his favorite charity. My son and I created a Memorial Fund in his name, and you can read about him or make your own donation to fight cancer, by clicking the photo link to the right.
Your purchases 'give back' and make a big difference in many lives, to families who are also living with cancer.
Thank you for your purchases, your supports and prayers.
