My pastimes:

When I am not designing, you can find me thrifting, repurposing furniture, spending time with family and friends, hosting parties and dancing the night away!

My name is Dawn Chanath-Wojnar and I am the principal interior designer at Chanath W Interiors. I started my company back in 2015 with the dream that clients deserve a beautiful design at a fair price. Accompanied with, a high-level of service, and a designer that takes the time to understand their style/personality and creates a VISION to represent this.

It is this VISION that I want to make a reality for you. I want you to “Live in the Vision” - to have that space that you get to come home to every day that makes you smile. It’s no longer a dream. It’s your life. Your reality.  ​​

How do we go about doing this?

You call or email me to set-up an in-person meeting. The first visit is a FREE consultation, so I can get know you and your space. We discuss your budget and I put together a proposal for the design fee. If it’s in-line with what you want to spend, a contract is sent over for signature.

From there, I send you a design quiz and questionnaire to hone in on the VISION I will create for you. I put together mood boards to show you how certain design elements and finishes will come together. This is the inspiration for what design direction we will head in. Once this is finalized, floor plans are created showcasing the layout, providing you with a visual for what your space will look like.

Color palettes, finish materials, furniture and lighting that create a cohesive design and express the VISION are ordered. Final plans are provided to your contractor/tradesman and your dream starts to become your reality.

An install day is scheduled when ALL the final details of the VISION come together and your left with a space you can’t believe is yours. Are you ready to take the first step toward this possibility?

If so, don’t hesitate to call me for a FREE consultation to discuss your project so you can “Live in the Vision.”

More about me …

My enthusiasm for interior design started in 5th grade after watching the Christopher Lowell design show, which provided its audience with affordable design solutions. Having grown up in a family that didn't have a lot of disposable income to spend on design, I found these suggestions to be inspiring. It was then that my parents’ house became my guinea pig. I would try out different furniture layouts, suggest new paint colors and convince them that we needed some new accessories.  😉  It was a trial and error process, but I was determined to someday be an interior designer. It's a belief that started back then and continues today - everyone deserves to live in a beautifully designed space.

Being a problem solver by nature, I love the challenge of coming up with a design that meets your aesthetic, use of space and stays within your budget. I have a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Interior Design from Harrington College of Design. My training and work experience taught me how to create cohesive designs, practical space plans and develop my eye for color. I also have a degree in Marketing and Finance from Marquette University, which has helped me in starting my own business.

Being in this industry has taught me that much more goes on behind the scenes of the design shows I love. Design is ALL about the details. A lot of time and preparation go into a successful design. Hiring a designer, as myself, can save you time and money in the long run and gives you a space that is crafted down to the very last detail – which is what makes a design truly exceptional. Let’s create that beautiful VISION and make it your reality.
