Hear what our satisfied clients have to say!

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- expanded 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 B., Webster Groves, MO
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, Frontenac, Mo
I don't even know how to thank you guys!!! I fell like I am crashing some movie stars house right now!! It is so much more than I even expected - seriously!!!Rachel Boyers, Downtown Loft, St. Louis, MO
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, St. Louis, Mo
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, Town and Country, Mo
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, Owners, 2Schae Cafe, St. Louis, Mo
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, Chesterfield, Mo
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, Bettendorf, Iowa
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, St. Louis Mo
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, Kansas City, Mo
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, Clayton, Mo
