She will review your furnishing needs, take measurements and recommend the ideal furniture placement for each space.

You can ask Shanly to accompany you on shopping excursions, or alternatively Shanly can shop for the items for you.


“Shanly helped transform the house into our dream home through her innate understanding of our needs and recognizing that, and what would work best in the spaces. From room layout to furniture, fabrics, paint and colour selections her service was both friendly and professional. The sectional sofa she made for us was such high quality. Shanly is dedicated to her work and to keeping her clients happy. I will continue to consult with Shanly and can certainly recommend her for any interior design work. Many thanks” Miriam, Mairangi Bay.

“From the moment that Shanly walked into my home to help with my design and colour choices I just felt a sense of relief! I had been so overwhelmed with the responsibility of choosing all the different colours of flooring, carpet, kitchen designs that I was almost paralysed with fear. Shanly was a breath of fresh air, she made decisions in 2 hours that I had spent weeks mulling over and the colours that she chose, fit together perfectly. I LOVE that she does a “quick” consultation style, where in 3 hours she has all the decisions made. I was so busy and didn’t want to spend days going over the options. We have had so many compliments on the final result of the house and I’m certain it has added significant value to the home. I have already recommended Shanly to several friends and would continue to use her for any future projects, Thankyou!!!” Aimee, Papatoetoe

“Shanly is a pleasure to work with. Her practical, unpretentious style has helped us solve a number of design constraint issues, within a realistic budget where others have not. The fact we have used her services on more than one occasion is testament to our confidence and faith in her ability to get the job done. When looking for design related advice, you need look no further than Shanly.” Lance and Michelle, Beachlands

“We engaged Shanly after being completely overwhelmed by the number of options and choices out there to complete and decorate our new house. With a limited budget we had Shanly gave us some great ideas to narrow down our choices around fabric, drapes, furniture, room layout, décor ideas to achieve the look we were going for. We have found Shanly to be extremely helpful, responsive and a pleasure to work with. She’s a true professional who listens to her customer needs and comes up with great ideas and suggestions. I would highly recommend Shanly’s services to anyone.” Maureen, Blockhouse Bay
