Designing mindful spaces with intention
My ultimate goal is to gain a deep understanding of your needs to create truly personal spaces that are aligned with the way you live, work and function. I understand that good interior design is more than just about the aesthetics. I understand which materials will last and how they will integrate best within the context of your project. I function as your subject matter expert and designer in assisting you to make selections that work for you. I also act as a problem solver and use my educational background to find design solutions for the inevitable design obstacles.
Flexibility and responsiveness are the basis for my client relationships . Listening closely to understand the nuances of your vision and making it tangible, is my ultimate goal. I endeavor to incorporate your personality, your style, and your very essence.

ask me about FENG SHUI
Feng Shui is the ancient and beautiful art of placement coupled with intention.
Although it’s effects are subtle, they are powerful enough to create great, positive shifts in many aspects of your life. I love to help my clients make changes in the arrangement of their spaces to alter and enhance the energy of the spaces that they inhabit.
As an architecture company, we refer clients to Shawn at Align Design to work directly with customers for a finished, cohesive interior that matches the original intent of a home’s architectural charm. Shawn is reliable, great with clients, and creates beautiful spaces. She’s got a joyful personality, and is positive and caring. We highly recommend her!
We asked Shawn to do a space plan for a small ranch home we purchased as our retirement home. Wanted to be able to age in place there. Since we were still living 5 states away when the project began, she traveled to and from the property to begin her plan and again to meet with contractors. She communicated with us by Skype, phone and email. Shawn has a pretty extensive form for her clients to complete for her before the first meeting. If you work with her, I urge you to work your way through it. The fresh ideas she came up with, the design board she did for the colors, materials, fabric and furniture was spot on for what we had in mind. The house is going to be amazing, and Shawn was great to work with.
