A Farewell to 2020
2020 has been a difficult year for us all.
However, our design staff at By Design Interiors worked hard to make the best out of our situations - taking this tough year in stride. We worked from home, transitioned back to the office, adjusted our protocols, masked up, and sanitized our office spaces all in order to create a safer office environment for us and our wonderful clients.
Thus, despite these changes and challenges, By Design Interiors had a pretty eventful year. There have been many changes around here. So, in adieu to 2020, we are recapping some of the highlights from this year!
1. We revamped our look!
While working from home, we took time to step back and look at ways to improve our design studio. That included: updating our website, logo, and social media.
Have you seen our new website? We excitedly launched it in August of 2020. Take a look at its fresh, new look: bydesigninteriors.com
Also, we adjusted our logo a bit. We wanted to stay true to the brand that Peggy built over 30 years ago but gave it a modern take. It was updated with a more streamlined look and added in our BDI Blue & Gold. We are so happy with the final product!
2. Updated the BDI Studio
Over the Summer, we made some updates to our resource room and work areas. It was a few cosmetic changes that helped freshen up the space. We added shelving, rearranged tables, and installed new carpet.
3. As seen in Elle Decor
2020 was an exciting year for print. By Design Interiors was featured in the 'Excellence in Design: Houston' spread of Elle Decor's September 2020 issue. The full-page spread was titled 'Designing Adventures', where Peggy Fuller, Owner, Founder, and Principal Designer, discusses By Design's philosophy for creating stunning and functional interiors.

4. Featured in Modern Luxury, Modern Luxury Interiors, and Luxe Magazine!
We had the opportunity to sit down with Modern Luxury for a Q&A on their website - you can still read it here!
Also, Peggy was featured in Modern Luxury - Interiors 'Faces of Design!' This full-page spread was included in their August 2020 issue. Check it out here!
Lastly, In November, we had the opportunity to be included in Luxe Magazine! We were featured in the 'Groundbreakers | Houston' Section of their October / November issue. Check out our 2-page spread below. We love how it turned out!
6. We Expanded By Design Interiors!
This was BY FAR the most exciting event to take place in 2020. By Design Interiors expanded our creative reach to now service the Austin, San Antonio, and San Marcos areas. Our senior designers, Erika Barczak and Isabel Sarria are working locally within these areas. We are so thrilled to be spreading our designs to even more homes throughout Texas.

All in all, 2020 has been a year of the new and unexpected: new protocols, new experiences, new faces, and new ventures for By Design Interiors. As this year comes to a close, we are thankful for the opportunities that 2020 has brought our firm, and most importantly, that our staff and clients in good health.
We wish you all a Happy New Year full of happiness, health, and new possibilities.
