"We don't just design beautiful interiors, we create happiness. Design and decor should always be a beautiful reflection of you. It all begins at home"

Our Story

Designs By Des Interiors was founded in 2019 by our owner Desireè when she saw a vision of helping busy professionals like herself by creating healthy spaces that would foster growth. 

As a young child, she always had a vision to create beautiful spaces that allowed for security and growth. Experiencing life hurdles in being a Navy daughter and overcoming a traumatic house fire as a pre-teen, she knew she wanted to give back to families and communities. The vision became more clear when she became a new mom, working from home in corporate America where she knew there was a need for a service like hers. Through her professional experience over the years, she has mastered distorting perspectives, brightening spaces, beautifying realities, and optimizing space through different techniques she has implemented. While becoming a homeowner, she has expanded her expertise in DIY (Do-It-Yourself) and taught others healthy home habits that can be passed down for generations to come.

Soon enough, Designs By Des Interiors grew and the need for more hands on deck became prominant. By hiring her family in fields they all mastered in, she knew she had a vehicle that would create a one stop shop approach to design unlike any other.

It has become our passion to bring the same love and balance into your interior space.

We are experts in distorting perceptions, beautifying realities, and space optimization through a cutting edge approach. DBDI believes home is a place of inner peace and dwelling. Everything begins and ends at home.

Client Love

Working with Designs by Des Interiors was an absolutely amazing experience. Des and her team have such a personal touch and they spend the time to get to know you and your taste. Never did I feel like she was imposing her style choices on me. She always struck the right balance between pushing me just slightly outside my own comfort zone and knowing me well enough to self-edit a design choice when she knew it may be a little more than I was ready for (even though I didn't communicate it to her directly). Communication was always clear and timely and there never were any surprises with the budget. I also loved how they treated my home with the same care and concern that they treat their ow...
