Shannon was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where the esthetic is emphasized in design including fashion, interiors, exteriors, and entertaining. Her exposure to art, dance, theater, music and travel is the cornerstone of her design philosophy.
After graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in Art History from Southern Methodist University, and living and studying in Milan and Rome, Italy, Shannon moved to New York City to pursue a career as an advertising representative for The Magazine Antiques and Art in America.
In 1994, Shannon relocated to the Boston area focusing on family and volunteering. After multiple events planned and helping many a friend with design, she was asked to place her home on a holiday tour in 2002. And, so began the inception of Grace Interiors, named for her daughter. Shannon continues to follow her passion for creating harmony between culture and life style in her work.
Collaborating with my clients brings great satisfaction from to start to finish. Representing their tastes and lifestyles while being cognizant of the balance between FORM and FUNCTION is key. My clients are of all ages and genders with different needs and aesthetic goals. I often help my clients successfully stage their homes to sell and then begin working with them on their new spaces. Detail is important to the process, whether on a huge construction undertaking or when creating a charming vignette. Budget is always a consideration. It is the overall look we are striving for when designing living spaces.
Having full access to the Boston Design Center and countless other decorative resources as well as good relations with architects and contractors, my clients' needs are met on every level.
Whether in a contemporary setting or a very traditional one, I combine balanced lines while adding an eclectic mix with some surprises here and there. A home is an investment, not only in real estate but also in creating memories and a desired quality of life. Let's get started.
