At By Design Interiors, we pride ourselves on having the best client experience. Here is what some of our clients have to say:


“I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy and her By Design Interiors staff on numerous occasions over the years. We have worked together on an interior decorating project, a kitchen remodel, an extensive remodel and addition to our home on Wamplers Lake, and most recently the redesign of professional offices at our manufacturing facility.

I was somewhat apprehensive to hire a designer, believing that it was just not in my budget. Finally, I had to admit to myself that I have spent way too much money over the years trying to “do it myself” and not achieving the success I craved.

Nancy has taken on complete projects for me from initial design with my architect to scheduling and following up with contractors taking care of every detail so that I could just sit back and enjoy the process. How often do you hear someone say they enjoyed home building? I really did.

Nancy has the ability to understand my desires and has the resources at her fingertips to make my dreams become a reality at a fair price. No more wasted money. In fact she fulfills for me design dreams I never knew I had.”

“Wow! That is what I think when I look at the final product of the remodel on our home. Nancy is the Designer responsible for the furniture designs, fabrics, layouts, windows and arrangements in our home today. She has an incredible gift of listening to her client’s needs, then meshing it into wonderful designs that look like they belong on the front page of an interior design magazine.

When I first met Nancy, we were working on my porch. I told her that I liked copper, stone, leather wood and a rustic/homey feeling. I told her she had a clean slate, and should include a table my dad made me. When I now look at my porch furnishings, every single one of those elements has been included in the project. I also told her my bedroom was a clean slate. All I told her was that I wanted a “rustic romantic” feel. Taking a look at it, I would not change a thing. She hit it perfectly!

If you have any interior changes you will be making with your home, I highly recommend Nancy to work with you. Thanks for making us feel that there is truly “no place like home,” our home!

We all feel we know how to decorate. This is how I felt until I crossed paths with Nancy. Nancy’s guiding hand showed us brand new styles without making us uncomfortable. Her kindness in suggesting and her ability to make the usual unusual (in a good way) reawakens us and brings a new rhythm to our life. Nancy’s designs provide us with visual delights we appreciate daily.

Since 1996, Debbie has helped our family develop four different homes into beautiful, calming, warm and inviting family homes. Her design aesthetic spans the spectrum from traditional to contemporary, and she is comfortable and knowledgeable in all categories. She never imposes her tastes on me; she has gotten to know mine so well. She could finish my entire home while my back is turned and I know I’d walk into the space and love every detail! I won’t tackle a design project without her!

– Julie Stotlar, Ann Arbor

“I have worked with Debbie Yuenger of By Design Interiors for over 5 years now and it has been an absolute blast! Love her style, her taste and her accessibility. Debbie will do what it takes to get the job done and ensure only the best quality product is delivered. She listens to her clients and really understands what their vision is, while introducing them to new and exciting possibilities. With her, the process of remodeling and finishing a basement was actually fun!”

– Lori Lowe, Ann Arbor

My husband and I bought a second home in Traverse City and asked Debbie to help us decorate the entire house. In just a short time she presented us with several choices for color and fabric schemes to meet our desire for a “fun and happy” lake home decor. She found furniture lines that were within our budget and a facility in Traverse City that would store the furniture until we were ready to have it moved in. Debbie worked so diligently that within four months she was ready to move everything into our new home!

On moving day, Debbie and her partner, Nancy, drove up in a rental truck filled with possible accessories for the home (artwork, end tables, lamps, small accent pieces, etc…). The items they had found were unique and perfect for the different personalities of our family members. They were all so incredible that it was difficult for me to choose which ones to keep! That morning I owned an empty house, but by late afternoon I had the home of my dreams.

Debbie was truly a joy to work with. She turned what could have been a stressful experience into a fun adventure.

– Kathy Magagna, Ann Arbor

Debbie, I would like to thank you so very much for the spectacular job you did decorating our home in in Traverse City. We just spent a wonderful week there and all agreed that our home was so cheerfully decorated and comfortable. Everything looks wonderful and compliments the location and views. I certainly did not want to leave. All your efforts and attention to detail are very much appreciated. You

are extremely talented at what you do. I look forward to enjoying this home for many years to come. Thanks again – it really turned out great!

-Lou Magagna, Ann Arbor

Debbie did such an amazing interior design job with our Dexter office we just had to have her help us with the remodel of our Pinckney office. When we said we wanted the second office to look every bit as good but totally different from the first office she completely understood what we wanted. We now have two fantastic and uniquely decorated professional offices. We are so pleased with her patience, knowledge and ability to pull design elements together she’s now helping us overhaul our home.
