Growing up with a mother who is a highly-regarded interior designer, Shay was exposed to the world of design at an early age. Designing professionally since 2001, her passion for interiors & interior products makes creating beautiful spaces for clients her true dream career. Inspired by traveling, the arts, family & friends, she approaches each day as a learning opportunity & a way to enrich her life as a designer. Mostly known for her use of color, pattern & texture – clients rave about her ability to transform a house into a welcoming happy home. She claims the key to a successful interior is the application of her design mantra which is to create an inviting atmosphere that reflects the personal taste & lifestyle of each client. Each of her designs infuse unique elements that are hand selected or tailored specifically for the client that still offer comfortable, family-friendly living.
Her portfolio ranges from commercial spaces including projects for major corporations & doctors’ offices to residential projects across the country including high rises & sprawling estates. Shay’s vibrant personality & personal approach to design often land her high-profile & lifelong clients who trust her not only with their primary homes, but also vacation homes around the world.
