A winner of Fashion Group International of Dallas’ Rising Star in Interior Design award, Shay Geyer is inspired by fashion, traveling, the arts, family and friends. She approaches each day as a learning opportunity and a way to enrich her life as a designer. Her passion for interiors and interior products makes creating beautiful and luxury spaces for clients her true dream career. Mostly known for her use of color, pattern and 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 and lifestyle of each client. According to Shay, “The mark of a really good designer isn’t pinpointed to one specific aesthetic, but instead [their ability to] design for each individual client. When you meet the client, you can have a conversation and identify their hot buttons, such as colors they are drawn to or what makes them feel happy. It’s all about the look and the quality, and how that room is going to function for that individual client.”
Her portfolio ranges from commercial spaces to residential projects across the country including high rises & sprawling estates. That individual approach paired with Shay’s effusive personality and impeccable attention to detail for all design elements often land her high-profile & lifelong clients who trust her not only with their primary homes, but also vacation homes around the world. She recently completed a G4 private jet for a client including all design elements down to the custom seating, flooring, walls and even the details on the custom china!
Shay is a go to design expert not just for her clients but the industry leaders as well. She has collaborated with CR Laine, Alden Parks, Burton James, Nourison, Somerset Bay, Botanical Mix, Art & Frame, Kohler, Polywood and the likes and is considered one of the power house designers of her time.
