Shelley Cole, Designer, Allied Member ASID
Born and raised in Hawaiʻi, Shelley joined our interior design team in the fall of 2014, with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in interior design, from the Art Institute of Portland, Oregon. She discovered her dream of becoming an interior designer working by her father’s side in his successful construction company.
Shelley brings with her a depth of hands on experience regarding the entirety of a project from foundation to framing, straight through to the finish work. In her passion to learn more about the architectural process of designing a home and expand upon her knowledge of what goes into designing a home she worked with an architectural firm creating island style inspired interiors. Her experience there with drafting and project management brought invaluable knowledge in addressing and completing the often complex steps, stages and timing that go into creating a successful design project.
