With renovation or interior design services, we opt to work in phases.

Step one: Complete a pre-qualification form in-store or over the phone to give us an idea about the scope of your project.

Step two: If the project is a fit, you will be assigned to a designer. We will go over some preliminary details, your budget, schedule a consult, and estimate the amount of design hours and/or material costs the project is likely to entail.

Step three: We move forward onto the design portion of the project where you will start to see the vision come to life.

Our goal is to create uniquely dynamic interiors that enrich the personal and business lives of our clients.

Shae Seeber

Owner, Lead Designer

Shae Seeber truly eats, sleeps, and breathes the world of design. As a child, she enjoyed working and learning from her father who was in construction, but she always had this infatuation with interior design. After working as a design coordinator to make the inside of homes as beautiful as the outside for local construction companies and developers, Shae noticed a huge disconnect between quality craftsmanship of a home’s exterior and craftsmanship for the interior. Time and time again, Shae watched contractors build beautiful homes and then install poor-quality cabinetry in order to meet budget.

So, a woman with a dream and the drive to turn it into reality, Shae Designs started out of a spare bedroom in Shae’s own home (which her business quickly outgrew) with a mission to bridge the gap between interior design and quality craftsmanship. Her goal was to continue to create beautiful interiors, but with cabinetry and craftsmanship that could stand the test of time, at an attainable price-point.

With her extensive background in both construction and design, she is able provide clients an all-encompassing solution and service unlike any other. Shae approaches design confidently with respect to the constructional aspect and an appreciation for function, utility, and a visually pleasing aesthetic.

Sasha

Interior Designer

With a Bachelor’s in Design from the University of Florida and Masters in Architecture from the University of California, Sasha’s education and extensive architectural experience makes her an asset to any design project.

While living in Santa Monica, some of Sasha’s noteworthy projects were working with firms renovating LAX International Airport, projects at The Row, a celebrity clothing line, and projects for boutiques on Melrose, with high profile actors.

Ready for a new adventure and a small town vibe, Sasha packed up her bags, her luxury background, relocated to Knoxville, TN and found her niche at Shae Design Studio.

She “quick on her toes” and “able to draw designs in any given moment.” Sasha is highly sought after, especially for higher end projects. Well known for her technological background using AutoCAD, Photoshop and SketchUp, Sasha can render entire floor plans in 3D, adding or removing walls, reconfiguring spaces and presenting realistic models of a renovation, furniture and all!

Sasha is skilled in the start of design, and equally so in choosing finishes such as tile, flooring, lighting and anything to do with kitchen design and renovations. She truly does it all.

Olivia

Interior Designer

With a degree in Fashion Design from the Art Institute of Nashville, combined with a lifetime of love for interior design, Olivia is well-versed in the world of style and design. Growing up, Olivia was first introduced to design by her mother, who attended design school. Together, they made a habit of rearranging and redecorating their home. Thus began Olivia’s passion for creating beautiful interiors and seeing designs come to life.

Olivia will take a tactical and collaborative approach to design. This allows each of her projects to not only maximize space and function, but also speak to her client’s own interests and lifestyles. Olivia is especially skilled in 3D renderings, spatial planning, furniture and textile selections, and the finishing touches. She values cutting edge ideas and thinking outside of the box, which often results in creating completely custom designs for her clients.

Olivia loves to draw inspiration from the fashion industry to influence her own interior design style and to also forecast design trends on the rise. She has a knack for not only helping clients choose the right functionality for a space, but also making a house truly feel like your home. With evident passion and talent for interior design, Olivia is a designer you can trust to get the job done and far exceed your expectations.
