A beautiful, functional home. A healthy, balanced and happy life. All it takes is time, money or both and even then there are no guarantees you'll love the outcome, right? 

What if there were an easy and affordable way to ensure your home supports and inspires you daily and in the coming years ahead with the degenerative changes of arthritis? I understand your unique challenges because one, I've been a designer for over twenty years and two, because I've been diagnosed with six types of arthritis myself. 

When you work with me one on one in my Pain Free Design Strategy Sessions I show you which colors, fixtures, furnishings and fabrics are the best for you now and long term. I show you how to create floor plans for beauty and convenience (who says one must negate the other!). I'll share the best resources for you and your project. I'll help you include your spouse or partner's needs into the scheme. And I'll teach you all my favorite ways to add texture, accessories, scale and greenery for real and perceived stability to your home. 

We work via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime from the comfort of your home. How convenient is that! But best of all, you know you will love the end results because we work together with your look, your lifestyle and my trained eye. Boom. 


With more inspiration from your surroundings you take so much better care of yourself.


"Shiree was instrumental in my stunning, and so comfortable living room design. She was able to communicate with me effectively helping me to make decisions that felt were all mine, guiding my choices into best possible interior style. Without Shiree's guidance I would have erred into buying the wrong sofa in the wrong color in the wrong size again. Shiree's has an incredible, innate sense of proportion and beauty. Everyone who comes to my home, now heads to my living room and feels comfortable hanging out in there."

During Our Design Sessions We Will...

Discuss in detail what you love about your home's overall style and what you hate about it.

Identify your style preferences; lifestyle; short and long term dreams and your other unique set of needs.

Determine how your home is currently functioning and not functioning for you.

Devise a decorating, remodeling, or building plan for a truly beautiful version of your home, suited to your lifestyle.

Choose colors, textures, and styles that feed your soul and soothe chronic pain.

Create one ideal floor plan that enhances your sense of stability and security.

"We worked with Shiree on two homes. She did everything from new furniture, window treatments, reupholstery and purchasing many new accessories, hanging every picture and placing all furniture and accessories old and new. We were very pleased with both homes and loved the fact that she was willing to work around many of the things we already had, updating them with fabrics, a few new pieces and accessories from her store. When we downsized several years later, Shiree turned the smaller house into a home. I love that my home looks so much like me and not someone else."

- Charlene D.

Hi, I'm Shiree!


"Shiree did two homes for us, with two very different styles helping us make selections of furniture, fabrics, some remodeling, window coverings, lighting, sofas, chairs, pillows, etagere, armoire, dining room set, coffee table, end tables and a beautiful stool. Both homes surpassed our expectations. She was really able to capture our various architectural styles."

- Leonora H. 

"We worked with Shiree for four years on our custom home in Granite Bay. She designed most of our window treatments, a custom sectional sofa, breakfast table and chairs, and dining room chairs to coordinate with a fine area rug. Shiree was always professional and generous with her time. She did a beautiful job complimenting the architecture of our home."

- Wendy T.  

"I have a lovely home in the mountains up above the snow level and I wanted to update my living room. I had followed Shirée’s bi-weekly design columns in the newspaper and called for her help. I wanted to work several of my existing furniture pieces and accessories and she got my style right away. I love the new sofa, chair, and window treatments and I was pleased how shiree incorporated my other items into the overall scheme." 

- Vianne M.

"We have worked with Shiree on two occasions with paint color selection, many custom window treatments and new area rugs and each time found the experience to be a great one. She is professional, reliable, and creative and even found a way to bring our different designs styles into a happy medium. We look forward to working with her again."
