I selected you at random, knowing I was taking a leap of faith, and I am so pleased with my choice. You are caring, thorough, diligent and responsive. You recommended Glen, who has been a joy. He is on-top-of-things and has been so considerate. Your attention to detail is commendable, and there is no way I could have taken on a project of this magnitude without your help. You have done exactly what I had hoped, to expand my comfort zone while making me feel comfortable, and narrowing an endless array of choices. You have selected items that I love, that I would not have necessarily selected for myselfColleen Beckemeyer
Shirley was great to work with. You give her a budget and she really works with you to accomplish the beautiful end product. She is easy to get ahold of, works hard, and is reliable. Now, with the addition of her daughter, they make a great team. I would highly recommend Shirley.”Tina Crouppen
I don’t even know how to thank you guys!!! I felt like I am crashing some movie stars house right now!! It is so much more than I even expected – seriously!!!”Rachel Boyers
“I have had the pleasure of working with Shirley Strom on a number of gut rehabs. In her role as general designer, Shirley was involved in every aspect of the project from initial floor plan design (which is always a challenge due to structural and system considerations) to the selection of interior doors and trim. Shirley brings a unique perspective, able to grasp the entire project from beginning to end. She thinks of everything from lighting and traffic flow to storage and furniture placement. Ultimately she creates beautiful, unique and efficient living spaces in touch with how people not only live in but enjoy their home.”Linda Hardin
“I have known and worked with Shirley Strom for several years and have used her on multiple projects in my house. I have also recommended her services to several friends. The fact that I continually ask her to help me with design projects is testimony to my comfort and satisfaction in working with her. Shirley has a keen eye for color and style. She keeps up to date on styles and works to provide very current style recommendations. She has the great ability to listen to me, come to my home to view my tastes and comes to a comprehensive understanding of my style focus. She has a knack of knowing what I will like and what I will not like. She is efficient in using her time and manages the cost of a project very well. I used her on a significant remodel of my home, one which took several months to complete, and Shirley coordinated the contractor, painters, flooring, etc. to make sure the project was a total success. Whether it is a call to her to determine what color to paint a bedroom, or a complete renovation project, Shirley has shown the ability to provide wonderful advice and oversight. She is very pleasant to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend her work and her design abilities.”Jill Fivecoat
“Shirley is a rare talent in this field: she has great artistic taste with an incredible sense of functionality. Both are used uniquely; always keeping her client’s wishes in mind and with an economy that everyone will appreciate.”Dr. Loren Michel
“I was trying to decorate a very difficult, long, narrow living room space and frustrated with how to make it work best for my family. Shirley helped me with furniture placement, color and draperies that transformed it completely into a very functional place that we now enjoy tremendously. Without her help, I would still be at square one and wondering what to do.”Mary Brassfield
“I continually get compliments for my home’s decor, including furniture, colors and accessories, all of which Shirley choose. She is adept at listening to my wishes and worked above and beyond to incorporate her great sense of taste within my budget. I trust her judgment and honesty completely. My home will always be a work in progress and I will keep coming back to Shirley for her recommendations for future improvements.”Mary Brauch
“Shirley and Katie have been very easy to work with. They are very good at getting a feel for what you want and working with that as well as being budget conscientious if that is important. I love the work they did in my master bedroom & bath, so much so that I’m already having them do more in other areas of my house.”Amy Evers
“S&K did a fantastic job helping us redecorate our new home. We told them we didn’t want anything boring, so they pushed us out of our comfort zone. The result was an unqualified success. They really know their stuff and came up with ideas we never would have thought of. We’re so happy with our new colors, fixtures, furniture and arrangements.”Kathy Schrenk
“What an incredible talent this woman has. I have worked with many designers and never had a better experience. Every detail, down to the smallest, was taken care of in a professional and creative way. I would never use anyone else to help me design my home. The service that Shirley provides is more than just design – it is the art of taking care of every aspect of turning a raw space into a comfortable and beautiful home. I cannot use enough superlatives when describing how Shirley has transformed our home in a very short time, into a warm and inviting space for our family.”Lynette Thompson
Highest of recommendations! I started with an older home (not my style); Shirley Strom was a true visionary and was able to totally transform my space into a sleek, modern, fun and classy home. I did not have a huge budget, and her creativeness really came into play with that issue. I have received nothing but fabulous comments on the final look achieved. I am thrilled with the end result and love the look of my home, thanks to Shirley’s talent, skill, and artistic eye!”Jan Freeman
“We expanded our little cafe in November of 2009 and did we ever have our hands full! What started out to be a two-week project turned into a very long month…Needless to say, my husband and I were a ball of nerves. Shirley Strom was a tremendous blessing on our expansion project. She not only listened to exactly what our dreams and expectations were, she stepped in to handle the contractors while simultaneously calming our nerves. Shirley made herself completely available to us during all of the “panic attacks” and worked magic with the colors and design. Every time I thought we were up against a brick wall Shirley would come through with an even better idea. We’ve had such a great response from our customers and recommend S&K Interiors to all.”Don and Lisa Schaefer
“I have worked with S&K Interiors several times over the years and I continue to be amazed by not only the size and scope of their projects, but the careful consideration given to every design element, no matter how small. I’ve been impressed with their detail-oriented approach, from space planning, to the selection of finishes, furniture and accessories. Shirley and Katie are not only knowledgeable, but a pleasure to work with. I recommend them highly and look forward to working with them again soon.”Tom Steck
“I have worked with Shirley on numerous projects over the years and I’m particularly excited about our newest work. She has asked me and my company, Barron Mirror Glass and Door, to assist with planning, fabrication and installation of a wide variety of mirror and glass items for a loft residence in down town St Louis, Mo. We are installing a large glass wine cellar, shower doors, mirrors and more to enhance her work on this stunning space. Her flair for original design ideas is very impressive and, now working with her daughter Katie, is in an even better position to make show off her talents. S & K Design is everything you want in a consummate professional. I will always promote Shirley to anyone I know looking for great design help.”Ted Haertling
“Shirley and Katie are a talented duo. We interviewed several people before making the decision to work with S&K. Our remodel project was huge, and required a full design of our entire first floor. With the final details almost done, we are beyond thrilled with the outcome. Shirley and Katie think outside the box and the finished product is magazine worthy! I appreciated their ability to create a masterpiece on a budget. They worked in collaboration with us and also used firm guidance when my ideas were not consistent with the project goals. I will continue to work with S&K for all of our design needs. They went above and beyond in both time and patience while working on our project. I am already considering doing another project!”Heather R and Nick H
“We were impressed with the professionalism and creativity of S&K. They created beautiful rooms with their style and ability to take us slightly out of our comfort zone when it came to colors and patterns. They were also conscious of our budget. We hope to work with them again in the near future to complete our formal living and dining rooms!”Husam and Miriam Nawas
“Shirley and Katie designed our lower level and did an amazing job transforming our space. They were creative, inventive and extremely resourceful. If we wanted it, they could find it or have it costume made. Shirley and Katie were fun and easy to work with. We are thrilled with our new space that truly has a wow factor when you enter. We looked forward to working with S & K Interiors in the future.”Christa Guilbeault
“S&K created a floor plan for our lower level remodel. They came up with a highly creative, functional, and stylish plan. It was a pleasure working the S&K and would highly recommend them.”Ross Blanton
“We are in the middle of a home remodeling/decorating project with S&K. Shirley and Katie have been very responsive and available. I love their ideas and they have worked to update everything while keeping all my family pieces, which is important to me. They have also gotten me to think outside my comfort zone, which will make the final project far more interesting than I ever would have thought.”Beth McCarter
“Recently, I had came to the realization that I desperately needed another set of eyes and ears in decorating our large, combined, living and dining room space. Though I felt, I had relatively good taste when it came to interior decorating, after literally months of fruitless effort; I came to the conclusion that, in spite of my good intentions, I needed a professional interior designer to help me make our decorating decisions.
Designer-Shirley Strom stood out from the rest. Her immaculate vision and sense of style was evident the first moment we started communicating. Shirley is more than just a designer, she took a time and effort to understand and assist to many different design challenges and budget. Although there is a significant cost for great advice on how to decorate one’s home, her fees is very fair and reasonable, I always felt it was worth every cent as it saved me a ton of time and indecision.
Shirley is reassuring and takes calm approach to relevant advice and recommendations, and I am especially pleased with her loyalty and level of dedication.
My experience with Shirley Strom was fantastic and I am very confident to say that anyone seeking a true professional designer with a customized approach will find her a gem to work with.”Rasa Krasauskiene
“S&K helped us with making selections for our new construction home. Their assistance ranged from helping us select lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, tile, countertops and paint colors all the way to finding furniture , rugs and other decor. They were an absolute pleasure to work with! They seemed to really understand what we would like/not like and always brought us thoughtful selections and input. I would highly recommend them for any project big or small. They helped us feel confident in our decisions and showed us options that we probably we have never considered otherwise. And at times they even served as our marriage counselor! (just joking, but the somehow managed to balance both of our wants.) Bottom line: S&K was great to work with.”Lisa Goldkamp
“Exceptional! They really took the time to understand what we wanted. Their design ideas were great and they really understood the construction process and sequencing. Their experience, and overall approach, earned them the respect of our contractor and everyone else involved. All of their suggested vendors proved to be superb and the service was excellent. In the end, S & K was the best investment we made in our project.”Tricia V.
