Trever Hill Design, Heritage Homes And Grain Designs
We were thrilled to reveal all of the deserving winners and nominees in our second annual Design & Living People’s Choice Awards. Since the formal celebration event honoring the winners and nominees was last week, we’re featuring what the award winners of the Best Interior Decorator, Best Luxury Home Builder and Best Custom Furniture Builder/Wood Design have to say about their wins, past projects and working in the growing Fargo-Moorhead community.
BEST INTERIOR DECORATOR
Winner: Trever Hill Design
“Being considered as one of the best decorators by the people in our community is something I’m very proud of. It’s hard for me to put into words, but I am humbled, honored, elated and thankful. The community has been so supportive of my work and for that I’m forever grateful. Being nominated next to a talent such as Julie Alin is an honor that makes me pinch myself. Knowing my path in life and where I came from to this point is a humbling feeling.
“My inspirations come from all around me. When I was first inspired by design, I was maybe seven or eight. My aunt, who was a designer, came into my grandmother’s house and made it beautiful. These days I am inspired by my travels and my client’s personal and unique style.”

BEST LUXURY HOME BUILDER
Winner: Heritage Homes
“We are honored and humbled that this amazing community believes our team is the best in the area. It validates our mission of not only building a beautiful home, but also providing the most enjoyable homebuilding experience with passionate people that wholeheartedly work to positively influence other’s lives.
“Seeing our homeowners’ anticipation before building and their joy when they see their new home is the most magnificent thing in the world. Nothing can beat experiencing a family’s excitement in establishing their heritage in one of our homes.”

BEST CUSTOM FURNITURE BUILDER/WOOD DESIGN
Winner: Grain Designs
“We feel very fortunate to have such great support from the Fargo community as we’ve been able to build our business here. We’re truly honored and grateful to be given the opportunity to share our passion for design/craft with so many people, and to be recognized as one of the best custom furniture builders for our work is even more humbling.
“Our passion for design and the opportunity to continue refining our craft is what keeps us going. There is never a day where our task list looks the same as it did the previous day so the challenge to continue to learn and grow the business is inspiring and motivating. However, the support from our clients and the community is probably the biggest motivation. We’re grateful to work with businesses, designers and private clients that appreciate our work and the friendships and relationships that we’ve developed with these same clients throughout the building processes is gratifying.”
