Sharon has worked with clients throughout the greater New Hampshire Seacoast, Southern Maine coast and North Shore of Boston since 1998.

Sharon lends a unique level of support to her clients. As a psychotherapist and a social worker, she is able to address and reduce the stress and overwhelming nature of renovating or building.

Working With Sharon:

Sharon’s design approach features a comprehensive analysis of the client’s project with attention to lifestyle and daily habits. She determines the requirements of the space before introducing solutions of color, fabrics, textures, etc. Sharon works toward a well-crafted goal with a masterful team skilled in upholstery, carpentry, custom cabinetry, and window décor. She has built relationships with vendors and merchants for preferred service in cabinetry, lighting, furniture, flooring, fabrics, and more.

Sharon manages the process seamlessly, from start to finish, offering creative and functional design solutions.

Additionally, Sharon’s approachable personality makes the process enjoyable and the decision-making fun. She is naturally easy-going with a strong affinity for details, thereby making clients relaxed and confident.

Sharon enjoys cooking, gardening, a myriad of outdoor activities and sports, and dabbling in art, in her Portsmouth, New Hampshire home.
