Metro Detroit woman turns passion for interior design into successful business

Trans-Style Interiors has helped commercial and residential clients across the US

Local 4 sits down with Black female designer

WEST BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Regina Donald, with Trans-Style Interiors, LLC, formed her unique style early on. From her childhood bedroom to her first apartment, she turned her passion for interior design into a successful West Bloomfield Township business.

“I believe that every home should be a place of peace,” Donald said.

Building Trans-Style Interiors into a powerhouse hasn’t been easy.

Once Donald got her foot in the door, she noticed Black men designers were getting more business than Black women. She wanted to change that and started networking with other interior designers who were Black women.

Donald’s clients live all over the country. Robert and Beverly Allen have worked with Donald for years. She decorated their Metro Detroit home, as well as their home in Las Vegas.

“She creates a space that is very personal to you,” Beverly Allen said. “She works with you to design a workspace that flows with your own sense of style.”

Donald wants to make sure the next generation of Black interior designers reach new heights.

“We have got to bring our young brothers and sisters up with us,” Donald said. “I just believe in community. That’s just the best part of my life.”
