Since 2004, Sheila Mayden Interiors has been creating timeless residential interiors as diverse as its clientele. Whether it be a casual beach house for a family of four, a rustic rambler for a pair of empty-nesters, or a stately Georgian-style home in need of restoration, our goal is to honor architectural traditions, listen to and meet the needs of the client, and ultimately create classic, livable spaces.
In all of this a single, underlying philosophy can be found—that the home is a living, breathing work of art, meant to be lived, played and worked in; a place for entertaining, rejuvenating and making lasting memories. Good design should last for years to come and the sign of a well-crafted space is its power to inspire and enrich the lives of those who dwell there.
Sheila Mayden began her formal training as an artist, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Art at the University of Washington. It was there she developed her eye for color, balance, and composition, and honed her own personal aesthetic—one that appreciates the beauty found in simple, every day surroundings; where colors and textures are harmonious, and pattern and detail delight the eye. This aesthetic infused her artistic training and carried through when she later decided to pursue a career in Interior Design.
Sheila’s early years as an interior designer were spent working for architectural firms, where she gained a strong understanding of construction drawings, architectural details and the importance of communicating effectively with contractors and tradespeople.
These skills served her well as she transitioned into the field of residential design, and over the years have earned her high regard among architects, contractors and clients alike. Her reputation for excellence, combined with a personal goal to always exceed the client’s expectations, are what have led to numerous repeat customers and clients who happily refer Sheila to their friends and family.
"While ever evolving, my personal style tends to be a carefree blend of traditional and eclectic influences. I love a playful mix of old and new, high and low, classic and trendy, practical and frivolous. I prefer things with character, quirks, and a bit of mystery over fancy or perfectly matched. When purchasing products for my home, it is not about where it comes from or how much it costs—only that it meets a particular need, adds a bit of fun, and provides visual delight. Warmth, comfort, livability, and a relaxed feeling of contentment are my goal. For me, well-designed, means well-loved and well-lived-in."
