Together they represent Decorating Den Interiors, the world’s largest interior decorating franchise, in the St. Louis area. When franchise owner, Heidi Sowatsky, made a career change and purchased a St. Charles franchise in 2004, she had goals of growing the business to serve the greater St. Charles and St. Louis counties, which she made a reality in 2011 by becoming a master license provider for the St. Louis and surrounding areas. In doing so, she is able to provide career opportunities to others in who have a passion for decorating.
Heidi and Alisa Lankenau have worked together for five years and have many design awards for their team efforts both nationally and through Decorating Den. Design Assistant Dee Dee Foster joined the team in 2012. The office efficiency was enhanced in 2011, when Christy Galba joined the team as office manager.
Decorating is a passion for the SWAT Design Team. “Our design philosophy is simple: a space needs to be beautiful, functional and livable. We take pride in our ability to accomplish all three while being mindful of our client’s budget. We successfully marry our design skills and creativity with our client’s vision of a dream room.” While the SWAT Design Team can “do it all … from the initial consultation to the final installation, handling every project detail” they work very closely with the client to ensure they are happy with the final product. Through Decorating Den, they have a wide variety of products to offer clients, everything from custom window treatments to furniture, lighting, floor coverings and accessories.
