Trever Hill is the owner of Trever Hill Design & Curated Home, both of which are located in the beautiful Fargo-Moorhead area. He and his team work on full-scale Commercial and Residential Interior Design. They offer a full range of services from 3D Renderings, AutoCAD space planning, mood boards and schedules.
Trever grew up in Oakes, ND, Lisbon, ND, and Spearfish, SD. It was when his Aunt Lois (a now-retired interior designer) refreshed his grandmother’s home that Trever realized just how one person could make such a beautiful impact in a dwelling. This sparked Trever’s creative desire, and when he decided to try his hand at decorating by going to a garage sale and picking out lamps for his grandmother, Trever knew he had found something he loved.
Fast forward 20 years, and he has been the winner of every design challenge or Peoples Choice Awards for the past six years. In his wildest dreams, Trever would never have imagined himself owning a business—that now has curated a team of seven.
“My goal when working with a client is to ensure the space represents them and not Trever Hill Design,” said Trever. “There are a lot of designers that push their aesthetic onto the client and that’s not our mission. “The proof is in the pudding when it comes to our return clients and referrals.”
A common misconception that people have about interior design is that it is either for “rich people” or “too expensive.” Trever and his team are able to overcome this misconception after their initial consultation when they explain to clients that they work with all budgets and they only charge an hourly rate. “It’s a fact, hiring a professional will save you money in the long run,” said Trever.
Although he believes many people can make a space look pretty, Trever’s goal is to ensure it will work for the homeowner in the long run. When meeting with businesses or homeowners, he provides all of the services needed for a client to make a decision they will be happy with, indefinitely. “Design is not limited to trends or the designer’s style,” said Trever. “It’s about the client and how they need that space to function for years to come.”

Inspiration, Colors & Trends
Travel is Trever’s main creative inspiration. It fascinates him to see what other cultures want for their dwellings. Working in places like California, Arizona, New York and other locations around the US has helped fuel Trever’s inspiration, as well as provide insight into the different needs and codes each place has.
Although he’s a firm believer in not looking at what others artists are doing, Trever admits there are two designers he follows on Instagram: Jeremiah Brent and Kelly Wearstler. When it comes to colors and textures, Trever is drawn to monolithic, organic and textural elements.
The lasting imprint Trever wants to leave on the community is being remembered as a forward-thinking designer that grew a business out of nothing but talent and hard work, who above all listened to the client’s wishes and was fair throughout all his projects.
