Parade of Homes

Fairbanks Parade of Homes is this weekend! There are 9 homes on the tour - maps are available at MacCheyne's Carpets Plus and various locations around town. This year we partnered with WV Builders - House #2, and helped with paint and color scheme at House #2 - Haffle Design and Construction. Don't let the snow keep you home, come out and tour some beautiful homes and preview our work.


The weather is Changing!!

Not sure about you, but the changing weather makes me feel like "nesting". Come see us to help you cozy up your home for Fall. We have beautiful bed linens from Amity Home and Villa. Create a beautiful nest with a new quilt or duvet - accent pillows and throws. Add some interest with rich textures like velvet, wool or sweater knit.

It is not too soon to start thinking about the holidays. Will you entertain or need to spruce things up for out of town guests? We can help - come see us. 


Big News!! Merle Norman in May!!

We love our little shop at the Artisans Courtyard on College Road, but it just doesn't have enough room for us as we continue to grow. (thank you for that!!)

So, we have decided to open a Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio in that space. We are very excited to bring a "try before you buy" quality skin care and makeup line to Fairbanks. Some of the gifts - you have come to know and love - from us will still be there. We will still have Scout bags, home fragrance products, candles, jewelry, etc. Opening date is projected mid-May.



Preparing for Spring!

We have just returned from the Home Furnishings market with all kinds of great information and ideas to get your home ready for Spring. Altough, the color of the year is "voilet".....we saw lots of blue - from deep indigo to bright aqua and everything in between. So, blue gets our vote!!

Days are getting longer and the sun is back! We are bringing in new items everyday and promise to show some wonderful new products at the Fairbanks Home Show, the last weekend in March. My personal favorites are bed linens and pillows from Villa and Amity Home. Pillows are a fantastic, inexpensive way to add a new look or introduce a new color.

Come see us soon - or - visit us at the Home Show!


We Are Growing!!

That's right - you asked for it and we are delivering! We are adding a new full service design center and furniture showroom. This design center is located on the second floor of MacCheyne's Carpets Plus on Peger Road. More of the beautiful home furnishings you have come to love and expect from By Design Decor. More sofas, chairs, dining room sets, bedroom suites and accent pieces.

We are open now - but, new items are arriving everyday. We should be ready for Grand Opening by Nov.15th..... stay tuned.
