Approachable Interior Design in Chicago (and Suburbs) is Here

We are Design Inside, an approachable interior design firm that designs beautiful homes in Chicago and the surrounding Chicago suburbs.  We focus in taking a boring living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom or any other room of your home that you aren’t loving anymore and turn it into a space that you will love for many years to come. If you are ready to finally ditch that worn out sofa from college or the builder basic countertops that came with the bathroom in your new home, you have come to the right place.  Let our experienced team of interior designers guide you through the interior design and remodeling process to make sure that your project ends up looking great with the least amount of frustration along the way.

Testimonies & Reviews

I can’t say enough good things about working with Bill and Katy. I hired them about 4 years ago for work on my master bed and bath, and then 2 years later for the rest of my place. They did fantastic work, and I continue to get compliments on my place… people are surprised that a single guy living alone can have such a nice place. Almost offensively so, now that I think about it.

We worked with Kathryn Cherne and it was a great experience! She was able to listen to our ideas and incorporate our design style into the color choices.

A Big Yelp Woohoo! As good as it gets!

…The only downside is I have to fess up to receiving help from Design Inside when I get compliments from my friends…Thanks Kathryn and everyone at D.I.!!!!

Kathryn and Bill are the house therapists and they can help you get your stuff together in a non-threatening way. They are really nice, down to earth people, not stuck up designers who only work in certain zip codes.  They never made me feel bad and I was really inspired to start working on my place.

I really can not speak highly enough of not just their design work but the designers as people.  Emails at all hours of the day/night are common because they will do what it takes to meet a deadline.  They will also do whatever it takes to get the project completed – no matter what it means.

We contacted Design Inside because we were having difficultly picking out colors for our new condo.  We had never used a designer before and after using them I will call them any time we need any major work done.  They exceeded our expectations in every way and did a great job of finding out what our style was before they even started working.

Interior design can be one of the more overwhelming things in life…I’ve heard so many horror stories about decorators not worrying about how much you spend and just rushing through the job. Design Inside was NOT like this at all!

From start to finish the Design Inside team has an incredible design style, is very very respectful of budget and are great communicators. I personally really enjoy interior design and the team worked with my tastes and opinions very openly, a great experience. I will work with Design Inside again in the future, there’s no doubt.

Abigail was fantastic to work with and helped pick all my paint colors! Everything looks great! I would highly recommend her.
