Striving for a successful career is the ultimate goal in life. We all long for it, we spend our college years discovering it, fine tuning it and applying it. Be that as it may, sometimes life has a different path laid out for you. For Debbie Travin founder of DLT Interiors, her early career in the fashion industry led to the discovery of her passion for design and eye for detail in interior decorating.
Emerging from her family’s background in fashion, where her grandfather started a high-end couture business, Debbie traveled to Italy on buying trips. From then on, her keen sense of style began to grow and turned into a successful career.
Moving to Scarsdale, with her husband Michael, brought upon the perfect opportunity to release her inner interior designer. They bought a home with a beautiful piece of property, which needed a lot of work—a complete gut renovation. It was a big project for Debbie, but she was determined to create her dream home. With no prior experience in interior design, Debbie dove in head first. After receiving positive feedback and media interest, this project became the spark that ignited a new and exciting career for Debbie.
Following her passion, Debbie attended the New York School of Interior Design where she continued to enhance her skills and knowledge of design. From then on, her interior design business was thriving with clients desiring her talent and style.
For Debbie, her clients needs and wants are the number one priority. She strives to cater to her client’s design esthetic, personality and overall vibe.
“It’s so rewarding to hear my clients say at the end of the project that their new home is exactly what they wanted but far superior to anything they envisioned “.
Inspired by her travels around the world, Debbie applies her experiences to the design elements. Working in the niche of young families in the city, Debbie enjoys creating fresh clean looks for the spaces she reinvents.
Her recent project dubbed the classic six-renovation design project involves the complete renovation and interior design of a young family apartment on Park Avenue on the Upper East Side. Warm tones of taupes, greens with gold accents became the feature of this project, evoking a natural feeling, with fresh elements and sophisticated style. Family orientation is also the main focus with this space, as Debbie transforms a formal dining room and reimagines it into a family play room, with upbeat colors for the kids but still keeping in touch with the sophistication element.
Debbie being a mother of three herself understands the importance of a romantic master bedroom, especially when you have two young kids. For the classic six-project, Debbie creates a peaceful, serene space, with a neutral color palette and soft tones.
“The Schumacher linen/ silk damask curtain creates a very luxurious feel for the whole room. I added a modern trellis wallpaper for behind the custom headboard as an accent wall.”
Her design style emits sophistication, classical style and appreciation for history. Debbie’s intuitive nature with colors, shapes and textures revitalize dull spaces into a vibrant eclectic territory. Her natural eye for recognizing the flaws of a space and the parallels that make the space allow her to reinvent any place, offering a fresh perspective and enabling present-day principles.
