Valley City, ND native Skye Fingalson is an Interior Designer and the Owner of Design 2 Sell in Detroit Lakes, MN. Growing up, her mother was her inspiration for design; she seemed to be always working on a creative home project. After graduating high school, Skye moved to Detroit Lakes and fell in love with the lake homes. She first interned with a local interior design firm and never left the industry. In 2019, she opened her brick-and-mortar design studio, Design 2 Sell.
At Design 2 Sell, Skye specializes in full-service interior design. She can take a space and completely renovate it, or simply just do a tiled walk-in shower! She also does in-home space planning and decorating, as well as coordination of projects from the initial design concept to completion.
“Hiring an interior designer most often saves a client money because it gives them a solid direction when planning out the visions that they have for their home,” said Skye. “Everyone wants to love the space they are living in on a daily basis and it is 100% worth the investment to achieve that.”
Skye says that interior designers allow you to see how your home will not only look, but they also dig deeper into functionality and personality by creating mood boards for vision, and by also allowing you to see, touch, and feel various textures and elements that will be incorporated into your home.

Inspiration, Colors & Trends
Black has always been Skye’s favorite color, so naturally, she has been enjoying all of the fabulous black hardware and lighting! She also loves all of the natural and organic pieces of furniture and decor that bring the outdoor feel inside.
Skye stays inspired by attending markets, starting new and exciting projects, and working with ever-changing new and exciting materials.
The ultimate imprint that Skye wants her design career to leave on the community is a job well done—a well-designed, functional space that is beautiful.
