About Debbie Dahl – Interior Designer

Debbie is an interior designer with over 34 year experience in design including an extensive background in television and film. In 1991, Debbie won an ‘Emmy Award’ for Best Set Design and Decorating on a television show called, “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse”. She has enjoyed doing both residential and commercial design since leaving the television industry in 1994.

Many people wonder how an Interior Designer works and what the benefit is from working with an expert interior designer.
Debbie says  “While the thought of decorating your home with an interior designer may be frighting for many, the key is
in finding the right person and then establishing a realistic budget up front”.

As a professional skilled interior designer, Debbie offers her expertise in room arrangements and improving a home’s function. “I know how and when to use color, texture, and pattern to a room’s character and can help avoid costly mistakes” says Debbie.

“I know where to search for the right sofa or the perfect accessory and I have access to fabrics and furnishings available only to the professionals.  It becomes a marriage of a designer’s talent and skill and your hopes and dreams.  Remember however, that design is very personal.  Good designers design for you the client, and not for  themselves”.
