We used (and are still using) Shelby to design the remodel of our 1970 Mediterranean style house. We are both practical, perfectionists and nerds but we don't have the vision a designer has and, we can't seem to make up our mind or see it all put together by ourselves (we tried).

Shelby took the time to understand our personalities and needs. She knows everything about style, texture, era, artists and designers. She knows all of the best places to shop for anything in DFW and she has infinite contacts in the industry. To us, it is money well spent and we absolutely recommend her.

We now have a vision of our house remodel which we are applying little by little (some of it we are doing by ourselves) and we absolutely love the details and are confident our house will not just get the common cookie cutter remodel but a fresh custom new feel.
