DC INTERIORS AND RENOVATIONS & DÉCOR- FOR THE WELL-DRESSED HOME

Deb Corning founded Deb Corning Interiors in 2001. Her goal was to create elegant and luxurious homes and office spaces. Her mission was to increase the quality of life for clients through design and remodeling. After several years of success with kitchen, bath, living space, whole house and commercial property remodels it was time to expand the company. Alana Barrera (now Vice President) joined the company in 2013. Shortly after hiring Alana, the company name was changed to DC Interiors and Renovations, LLC. (DC) to include the team. With the company continually growing, the team decided it was time to find a space to showcase their skills and home accent/décor pieces. This would allow DC clients to choose pieces for their homes during the final phases of their remodeling projects. In 2015, the company moved from the West side of Madison to Fitchburg and acquired a beautiful space to showcase their work. With business flourishing and with DC getting such a great response from clients about the showroom the company decided it was time to open it to the public. DC named the showroom “Décor – For the well-dressed home” and did just that in September of 2019. The public opening of the store prompted another addition to the team. Melissa Corning was hired as a Sales and Store Manager in 2019. The Interior Design team at DC completes all the purchasing and staging for Décor, while actively taking on new remodeling projects. The combination of interior design and remodeling coupled with the new showroom and additional staff has made DC Interiors and Renovations and Décor- For the well-dressed home an exquisite and hassle-free destination for all of your home remodeling and decorating needs and desires.
