Shannon received her education and formal training from the Parsons School of Design. Shannon served an apprenticeship with a renowned decorator and was involved with the design and promotion of her mentor’s Kip’s Bay Show House vignette which garnered Shannon with many accolades. Shannon’s love of design is inherited. Her parents were in the building industry and she grew up learning first hand how to get a project done from soup to nuts. Previous to Shannon’s design career, she received her Bachelors in Business Administration and worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers providing tax consulting and compliance services. Her public accounting experience is a training which to this day she credits when considering and adhering to a client’s budget. Along with launching her design business nearly 10 years ago in Westport CT, she also co-founded the home interiors blog Design Serendipity and served as the Director of Business Development for Interior Design at Lillian August. Shannon continues to bring her clients creative designs and remarkable customer service. Shannon resides in Fairfield, CT with her husband, three kids and two step children.
