Sylvia Lunski, Owner/ Designer
My passion for working with people, combined with creative design and technical expertise in everything I do assures you a well-designed, creative project. With over 30 years of design industry experience, I have extensive experience with cabinets, flooring, furniture and draperies.
I bring to my clients an understanding of the construction process as well as trusted relationships with local contractors, trade partners and architects. This unique combination will provide you with exceptional results.
When designing, I pay close attention to your needs and preferences. We will work together to create beautiful functional spaces that perfectly reflect your personality and compliment your lifestyle.
I believe in giving back to our community and am passionate about helping those less fortunate. I am actively involved at my Church as well with FM Home Builders Association, Rotary International and Rebuilding Together. Serving others has become a cornerstone value that Design Direction’s success has been and will continue to be built on.
A Fargo resident, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our children and friends.

Christina Mehl, Interior Designer
I work closely with Sylvia & Callie on projects, specializing in window coverings, custom draperies, computerized drawings, and estimating, facilitating client presentations and scheduling installations. It is especially rewarding to work with clients who are redecorating, guiding them through the total transformation of their home without changing the structure.
While I grew up in Fargo, I also spent several years of my childhood and early teens living in Russia and Ukraine, where my parents are missionaries. It was during this time of living in the former Soviet Union that I began to cultivate a love for color, fabrics and design. I could often be found sewing pillows to cozy up a room or going through my fabric stash to find material to make curtains for windows or other projects. After returning to the United States, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from Westwood College in Denver.
I love spending time with family and friends. I stay busy through my involvement with the Home Builders Association, North Dakota Interior Designers, my church, Russian Harvest Ministries, and have a passion for quilting, scrapbooking and furniture refinishing.

Callie Blackwelder, Interior Designer
I get the privilege to work alongside Sylvia and Christina on a variety of projects. Computerized drawings, space planning, material selection, and marketing our business are tasks I enjoy. What has been most rewarding has been being able to see a client’s project through from start to finish and seeing their reactions to our work every step of the way.
Ever since I was little, I have had a passion for space planning and making a space more functional. While my ideas weren’t always adopted, my parents never stopped supporting and encouraging me to pursue my dream of becoming an interior designer. In May of 2014, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design with a minor in Business Administration from North Dakota State University.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with Brett, my husband, family, and friends. Cooking, baking, and repurposing furniture and accessories are a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, I enjoy fixing up our farmhouse and being involved in the North Dakota Interior Designers, FM Home Builder’s Association, and various Chamber events.
