Decor & You Franchise

Homebased interior decorating business


Karen Powell and Josie Cicerale started D'r & More, an interior decorating business made up of independent homebased decorators, in 1994. To help their company grow, the partners decided to franchise their concept and in 1998 launched the D'r & You Inc. Franchise Program.

D'r & You franchisees work with owners and renters of homes and condominiums, using furnishings, carpets, wall and window coverings and other elements to change the looks of kitchens, bedrooms, offices and more.

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
