Debbie Darling, Owner/Designer of Darling Design and Decor moved to Arizona with her husband, Scott and their cat, Putter and decided to do what she's always loved doing - decorating homes! I come from a very entreprenural background - my Dad was a home builder and my Mom owned a fabric store. I sold residential real estate in Washington State for 21 years, and did home staging during that time. I went back to school and recieved my accreditation in Professional Design and Decorating in December of 2007.
I feel listening is the key to creating a home that will fit my clients personal taste. LISTEN to the client, then follow-up with the Magical Powers of Transition blending new with old - taking your personal treasures and mixing them in with a fresh paint color, new furnishings, window treatments, area rugs and accessories makes this all happen. I love pulling together the eclectic flavors of the old and new to create a home that celebrates their life's adventures!
I firmly believe that everyone's home should be their castle, and at the same time you should always be able to curl your feet up on the sofa - I certainly do! When the job is completed my true joy is seeing and/or hearing the client's comments! They are usually filled with emotion over a job well done (read client testimonials) and filled with excitement to share with friends and neighbors. I love being referred to new clients "enthusiastically" by prior & current clients.
I would love to add you to my list of enthusiastic and satisfied clients, I will be considerate of your budget and lifestyle. I will do my best to walk in your shoes when designing and decorating comfortable living spaces for your home.
