Interior design is very personal and specific to each client, so I spend time
understanding not only what colors, trends or ideas are of interest, but also how my
clients live and what they value most. I love to help people discover and want to use
every part of their home or workspace by reinventing layout, use of color, texture,
and treasured items. Whether it’s a home or place of business, aside from being
visually pleasing, spaces need to elicit a sense of comfort and ease - a place in which
you’d like to spend time.
Since establishing my business in 2006, I have done a variety of work ranging from
color consultation and staging, to complete bathroom and kitchen remodels.
With degrees in fine art and textile design, and over 20 years of experience
in the home furnishing business, my background informs the layers and variety
of materials in my designs. Unexpected and sometimes quirky combinations
make spaces come alive. I like to include products and ideas that are
environmentally-connected, whether through use of eco-friendly materials or in
reusing and reinventing existing furnishings.
"I have worked with Kirsten for many, many years. She is fantastic at fabric and paint color choices. I never had to worry when I turned things over to her"
"Kirsten Sharer has designed two homes for us, first a one bedroom apartment, and, most recently, a large 4 bedroom house. She is brilliant and a joy to work with. She is sensitive to our aesthetic taste and lifestyle and can accommodate a range of budget needs. She can start from scratch or she can creatively make use of the existing pieces and augment them with selectively chosen accents and larger pieces. In a weekend, she combined the contents of our Denver apartment with the already existing contents of our California home. She added a few select accents and and one piece of furniture. She re-arranged what we had. The result: every room in our home is now a truly beautiful, comfortable, inviting place to be. We really can't stop saying to each other, "This is unbelievable!" We love our "new" home! Thank you, Kirsten!!"

"Everyone who has come over is flabbergasted and thinks you are brilliant. It's not just me!"
"I highly recommend working with Kirsten. Her global perspective and knowledge about art, color, and textiles truly sets her apart. I moved in with my significant other, Andrew, and we needed help designing a space that reflected our two styles. Not only did Kirsten deliver, she exceeded our expectations. Throughout the process, Kirsten was deliberate in ensuring both of us saw ourselves in the design. For example, our chandelier was inspired by Andrew’s favorite cocktail bar in Chicago and the color scheme was inspired by my travels to Singapore. I’m happy to enjoy a space that is uniquely ours and Kirsten helped make this a reality. It was a positive experience working with Kirsten and am looking forward to the next project!"
"Kirsten has a lovely sense of color which she used to help us choose window treatments and wall color. Our home had white walls through because I was hesitant to apply color after several disastrous attempts years ago. Kirsten was able to translate a vague description of the effect I was aiming for into reality. We could not be more happy with the colors chosen."
"Kirsten helped us make better use of our living space simply by changing the placement of our existing furniture! We were amazed at the difference her ideas made. She has the ability to "tune in" to the way we live and make suggestions that work for us."
