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 renovation projects, beautiful interiors, and seeing designs come to life.

Kristen | Interior Designer

With a family history full of women who share a flare for design and beautiful interiors, Kristen’s love for design and textiles began at the young age of six, when her grandmother first taught her to sew. Kristen’s journey into the design and textile world began to flourish when she was selected as a Visual Merchandiser for Ralph Lauren. From there, she became infatuated with textile, dabbled in event planning and design,

Her lifetime of passion and design experience quickly evolved into a multifaceted knowledge and expertise of luxury design, fabrics and textiles, draperies, lighting, quality of craftsmanship, finishes, and custom work.

Madison | Showroom Designer and Marketing Coordinator

With over 6 years of experience in fashion, marketing, and visual merchandising, her own style and lifestyle blog, and calligraphy business on the side, Madison has naturally developed an eye for style and design. Though she is a “Jack of all trades,” her affinity for interior design and decorating began with her mother, who is also an interior designer, and her uncle, who was the head of Visual Design for Neiman Marcus–so you could say it’s in her blood.

When it comes to interior design, Madison is very strategic in her plan for your space, with careful consideration of your lifestyle and budget. Her design philosophy is that though every space should have a truly beautiful and dynamic aesthetic, it should also be a reflection of who you are and your own interests. Madison defines her own design style as “timeless with a twist” and prides herself on her attention to detail and the ability to curate polished, yet functional, spaces.  She loves to help clients choose the right flow and layout of a space and to also introduce different patterns, textures, and colors into their homes with confidence. She believes that comfort comes first, but style is a close second. (Except when it comes to shoes…)

Madison often looks for design inspiration from other cultures, parts of the world, or times in history. As a creative, she uses her inspiration and design background to carefully curate versatile and sophisticated designs for every client. With a wide-range of talents, listening ears, a trained eye, and a true love for design, Madison is sure to put you at ease when helping make design decisions.

As the digital age is changing the design industry drastically, Madison has also been an integral part of Shae Design Studio’s online and marketing presence.
