Elizabeth Burns | Raleigh Interior Designer


I’m Elizabeth, Designer and Owner of Elizabeth Burns Design. I’m really glad you’re here.

We are a Raleigh-based interior design studio that specializes in creating a high-end look without the crazy high-end price tag.

After graduating with a BS in Interior Design from Meredith College, I spent a decade pursuing a career in buying, merchandising, and eCommerce. During this time, I discovered a passion for renovating. I created this blog in 2014 to document our adventures in real estate and remodeling. My husband, Brian, and I have renovated and flipped half a dozen properties since then with hopefully more to come!

My background in design, eCommerce, and flipping has allowed me to offer clients a unique experience. I believe that everyone deserves a home that they love and it shouldn’t cost a small fortune. I utilize my buying experience to score amazing pieces at amazing prices for my clients’ projects. I love working with real estate developers as well to assist in selecting affordable finishes that will wow potential buyers.

Elizabeth Burns Design was recently featured in Better Homes & Gardens. You can also see us mentioned on Country Living, Sherwin Williams, Buzzfeed, and Raleigh Magazine.

Elizabeth Burns Design | Budget Friendly Interior Design and Lifestyle Blog and DIY


Your environment affects how you feel -
Why not make it the best that it can be?

Your home is your retreat after a crappy day at work. It’s where you share belly laughs with family over a home-cooked meal. It’s where you make memories with friends, old and new, over a glass of wine - or two. It’s where you bring home your babies (both the human and furry kinds). We hands-down believe that your home is worth investing in to make it personalized for the way you live your life.

Our designs are 100% tailored to fit you and your family's needs. We get it - life is busy. Our goal is to take the stress and frustration out of the furnishing and decorating process and make your surroundings work with your lifestyle. All moved in to that new place but just not loving the way it looks? Renovating and completely overwhelmed by the options? Downsizing into a smaller house and have no idea how to make it all work? Want a HGTV-like home but don’t have time to do all.the.things?

Sign us up!

We specialize in breathing life into your home with budget-friendly furnishings that look high-end. Elizabeth handles the design side of things and pulls Brian into a project during the installation. We're real small, y'all, and only like to bite off as much as we can chew to make sure our clients are completely satisfied throughout the design process.

So if you're struggling with making your house feel like home, we hope you'll reach out.

We can't wait to hear from you!
