Design Collaborative is a professional interior design firm that was established in 1991 by Michele Fanning, NCIDQ. Over the past 25 years, dc2 has become a multifaceted firm with broad experience in commercial and residential markets, both locally and internationally.
Our goal is to create a design program that will best suit your style, budget and time frame. We seek to find practical yet interesting solutions to all design challenges by using a select group of consultants, artisans and sub-contractors chosen specifically for each unique project.
With our meticulous attention to detail, we are able to incorporate our knowledge of lighting, custom millwork and product resources to accommodate all styles of design, and we hold the highest standards for both our design and the quality of construction. We are selective in the projects we undertake to allow dedication of our full attention to our clients’ needs.
To provide living and working environments that
express the lifestyle (culture) of the people who inhabit them
At dc2, we specialize in understanding the style, desires and challenges of each individual project. The result: working and living spaces that look great and feel just right.
Our firm engages in full-scale development of each project in collaboration with the client and entire design team, from the planning stages to furniture installation. Our wide-ranging scope includes hotels, restaurants, and educational and corporate offices.
Our designs encompass a vast array of styles to satisfy our diverse clientele. Living on the Central Coast of California allows us to work with a wide range of people who aspire to work and live here. Many of our clients have several homes around the world and bring with them new inspirations for design. From our local California Spanish style to our clients from Sri Lanka, we are adaptable to any design style.
Purchasing, Procurement, Expediting and Installation

What that means to you: insider access, industry discounts, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your design decisions are in expert hands. From purchasing to installation, dc2 handles the entire process with unrivaled professionalism so you can relax and enjoy your new space.
