meet the principal designer
Becky Shea is a full-service, turn key, interior designer and lifestyle entrepreneur in New York City. As founding partner of her company and lead designer, she provides creative and operational direction to construct a unique vision for each project with her team. Rooted in her love for the simplicity of natural materials that evoke a calming and true modern tradition, her work emphasizes a commitment to sustainability and embracing the local artisan community. By focusing design on telling the narrative of her clients’ passions, lifestyle and most cherished memories, authentic and beautiful moments are created organically throughout the home.
Her career started in Manhattan, as a flagship visual merchandiser for brands like Levi Strauss and Elie Tahari, architecting memorable floor displays that simultaneously enhanced point of sale and brand value. She strengthened her skill-set and business knowhow at several start-ups, focusing on international business development, product development, and intellectual property for home design collections. Since then, her discipline shifted to learning the business side of renovation and development, focusing on efficiency without sacrificing quality in order to maximize value for her clientele. In 2015, she joined the Homepolish senior interior design team as a consultant in New York, specializing in luxury residential renovation, conceptualizing and managing large-scale projects for the company before moving on to launch her own design studio.
Becky’s fundamental love of beauty in craftsmanship is intrinsic. She hails from a lineage of master craftsmen and entrepreneurs, including two grandfathers with features in Architectural Digest. While spending countless days shadowing their work, she developed a keenness for space and the importance of organizing a room on an axis that maximizes form, function and flow of an environment. Her holistic approach, coupled with an unparalled relationship focus and attention to detail, ensures that your personal design experience will not only be enjoyable, but just as transformative as your new environment.
