Seasoned interior designer and expert thinker on sustainable living, Shelly brings 20 years of experience to the interior design community and continues to contribute to the national conversation on sustainable, adaptive design and its impact on human health and well-being. She has built her career in design on the premise of “living well”, an ideology that for Shelly, goes far beyond creating beautiful spaces.
“Interior design can upgrade safety, boost mood, improve relationships and increase the value of our largest investment, our home or business, and how we think, feel and behave within the space.”
Shelly has mastered the multifaceted approach required for achieving sustainable living and believes a sustainable environment should be available to all, regardless of the unique needs various individuals may require. Although her designs are always stunning, her priority is less on creating physical beauty, and more on helping others improve their overall quality of life. She does this by composing supportive and adaptive environments that help foster mental, emotional and physical well-being, as well as environments that accelerate growth, awareness and human progress.
As a mother of three children, each with learning differences and special needs, her ability to identify and honor everyone’s unique design requirements has grown exponentially. Shelly has dedicated her profession to creating and designing adaptive spaces catered towards the differently abled and has a keen ability to listen to needs first and design accordingly.
From creating and designing spaces to offering product recommendations and instructional courses, Shelly’s work is shaped and formed by the unique needs of those she is serving in the moment. Her work focuses on providing adaptive design that translates across various populations, as she has a heart for both the provision of services to the differently abled and the accessibility of these services for those who may not have the means to hire a full-service design firm. Shelly meets her constituents where they are and provides a creative and innovative solution for helping all in need of adaptive, sustainable design.
