It has been two weeks since starting as a color specialist and associate at Natural Built Home. It is an inspiring place to work. The products are unique, promote health and safety in our environment and homes. My associates are also supportive and dedicated to the cause.

As I further my specific understanding of the products available here, I will share some of the great things I am being exposed to! Nothing harmful, that is for sure!

In fact, I am inspired, finally, to forward my professional goals and expand my credentials, yet again! There are a couple of things that I want to do. Using the National Certification for Interior Design Qualifications (NCIDQ) Certificate, as a springboard and foundation to further my expertise in the field of interior design.

First off, LEED certification. This is the first direction, I wish to research and plan. It is something that has always intigued me.  It seems a very good fit for my values.  My mentality of form follows function, just makes sense, specifiying and using products that are good for our health and good for the environment. The delicate balance of materials and artisanship, creates the beauty that is inherent and unique to each design project! Maybe even yours!

…The more I learn, the more I realize there is to learn, there is always something to aspire to. The world of interior design is a world that brings me to life, it animates me, drives my passion to the surface and I am most expressed when I am practicing it.

Participating in experiences that are fun, enlightening and exceed expectations is the greatest reward for me and are a personal measure of my success.

As a professional, the art, science and business of interior design is where I spend my time. Experience has given me the gift of efficiency and accuracy. Something that has great value to me and benefit for you!

There are other ideas that have caught my fancy that I will be expanding and detailing on the website, so stay tuned in and subscribe. Be the first to learn of the exciting direction we are headed! Shelly’s Design Studio, is redefining new product directions, expanded services and exclusive opportunities that will be revealed when the time is right. For now, going greener, more local and responsible manfuacturing processes are areas that I am committed to seeking out and providing for my clients.

What I am sharing, is that I am committed to my industry, my profession and the people that I serve within my practice to provide, stellar design!
