Deb Daly – Owner/Design Partner  Deb started her career as an Exercise Physiologist in South Florida. Although rewarding, her passion for home interiors could not be denied. Deb left the medical world behind her, and headed back to her hometown of Vero Beach, Florida to explore her creative side. This led Deb to Decorative Arts, a home accessories retailer that catered to both local residents and interior designers. After a few years of learning the business, her ultimate dream was realized when she purchased the company from previous owners, Ken and Jann Farrar. Fast forward 15+ years, and Deb has grown Decorative Arts into not only the place for home goods, but also a full-fledged design center. Through travel, attending key markets, and supporting local artists, Deb is able to source unique furniture, lighting, home accessories and artwork. Her style can best be described as “eclectic luxe”, and she excels at bringing unexpected element together harmoniously. Truly living her dream, Deb’s passion and creativity shine through every project.

Stevie Cappelen – Owner/Design Partner  A third-generation Vero Beach native, Stevie attended high school at St. Edward’s School, and went on to receive his Fashion Design degree from The Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. After many years as a store manager and buyer in the fashion industry, as well as an Interior Design Assistant, Stevie decided to indulge himself in one of his lifelong dreams—living in New York City. He spent two years working as a publicist in Manhattan representing major brands in wine, spirits, food and consumer products. Much of his job consisted of media outreach, creative client programming, and traveling all over the world with journalists to introduce them to the brands he represented. Following his stint in Manhattan, Stevie decided to move back to Vero Beach to be near his family and immerse himself in his passion for interior design. Stevie joined Decorative Arts Designs as an Owner and Design Partner in 2012 with Deb Daly to grow her existing retail store and design business. Stevie’s style can best be described as “sophisticated casual”, and he loves the challenge of mixing traditional elements into contemporary design. With a passion for travel, art and culture, Stevie always brings a part of his adventures back with him, and incorporates them into his designs.
