PEGGY FULLER

Principal Interior Designer, Owner & Founder

At By Design Interiors, my design staff and I, approach our projects as an adventure... full of discovery.  We believe that working with a designer should introduce you to new thoughts and ideas.

 

Peggy has over 30 years of design experience and training in both residential and commercial design. She would say she has always been a designer..." as a young child I was constructing furnished apartment buildings with shoe boxes and found objects that would accomplish my vision."
