Meet Devane Design – Our First Designer Spotlight!

A classic designer, Chantal, originally from the Boston area credits her mom, a realtor, for sparking her interest in the home industry.   As a young girl, she recalls changing and moving her bedroom furniture to alter the look of her room on a regular basis…foreseeing a budding career ahead.

After moving to Minneapolis, Chantal embarked on her design career in 1999. Eventually starting her own business in 2003, she recalls her very first project was a neighbor’s log cabin.  Talk about diving in head first! Although arduous, she found it extremely rewarding. “I work really hard to get to know my clients on a personal level, and I strive to make each design unique and specific to my client and their home—and the way they live in it.”
