Peter & Donna Fayerman Of Design Guild Interiors Help Clients Every Step Of The Way Story by Julie Unger • Photos by Shea Christine

Design dynamic duo Peter and Donna Fayerman of Design Guild Interiors have been designing for decades. Both have impressive backgrounds in the design industry. Donna was the youngest interior design executive with Bloomingdale’s in New York at age 25. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology, is accredited by the American Society of Interior Design, is a licensed commercial interior designer and a published author. Peter is the past president and CEO of Baldwin Hardware Corporation and a previous executive with a Fortune 100 manufacturing company.

“We are dedicated and passionate to helping people live beautifully!” Donna said. The two coming together to create their own design company was a natural fit, she added. Design Guild Interiors is project-oriented from start to finish, design to installation, interior to exterior with every attention to detail considered. “We are a guild of professionals, in constant communication with our client every step of the way,” Peter said. “We personally oversee each project on site, and manage to our budgeted objectives.” While Donna works on the design — she is the principal designer and works exclusively with each client throughout the project — Peter works on budgeting, installation and administrative duties. Their team works together as a family, with the common goal of making design fun, providing a personal experience for clients and creating beautiful design. Donna and Peter recently celebrated

their 34th wedding anniversary, as well as daughter Lauren’s first wedding anniversary. Because of their occupation, they were able to spend a great deal of time with Lauren, who was born with Down syndrome, and against the odds went on to study dance in college. Their strength in family carries over to their work. “When you get one of us, you get both of us,” Donna said. They have a passion for design excellence, which shows through in every project they work on, whether it be designing apartments later purchased by the Ritz-Carlton, working on locations in the Jupiter Country Club, or working on the interior design of a church. For the Fayermans, the journey is as important as the destination. They suggest that anyone looking for assistance with design work be sure that they click with the potential designer, stressing the importance of enjoying the journey. As design has evolved, their personal style has changed to meet the times. wellington the magazine | november 2017
