Featured Projects

Take a peak at some of our most recent projects.


The kitchen is often referred to as ``the heart of the home`` and as such is one of our favorite spaces to remodel. It is the place where meals are created, memories are made, and where the minds and souls of family and friends come together from all over the world to hang out, relax and enjoy! Kitchens are for more than just cooking. In many cases they are where children are encouraged to join in and learn the art of cooking, and the joy of preparing a family or holiday meal together. Kitchens are not sedate and quiet rooms. They are rooms filled with energy, aroma and texture.



What are your dreams for your ultimate bathroom design? Let your imagination run wild....... steam showers, rain heads, body sprays, aromatherapy, heated floors and towel rails, fog-less mirrors, sound systems, TVs, bidets, vessel sinks, exquisite stone and tile, and even espresso machines.



Rather than having the headache of assembling contractors and consultants yourself, our synergistic team will allow you to access the benefits of working with one dedicated company, committed to the success of your addition/remodel. Here you have access not only to Sass Construction and Design, but also to Shelley Sass Designs, Interior Designer, to assist you in achieving continuity of your design elements.

Shelley is THE BEST! With the help of her E-styling she was able to make my apartment dream come to life. She helped me find items in my budget and guided me through all the decision making. She also guided me through color choices and made sure everything worked well together. Thanks Shelley. I would use you over and over again.

Rio S

Shelley has helped my wife & me with several projects over the last 4 months which included designs for reupholstering most of our furniture, arranging for the reupholstering, assisting the remodel of 2 rooms, and placing photographs and pictures throughout the house. She has been thorough, easy to work with and has kept us well informed.

Richard F

EXCELLENT. Shelly turned a small office space into an absolutely beautiful, modern office. i am now proud to come to work. Shelly was responsible for all of the planning and had great contracts to get me amazing prices as well. I recommend without reservations

Roger K

I was introduced to Shelley by my previous designer when I remodeled my kitchen. She had moved away and highly recommended Shelley. I am so glad she did. Not only is Shelley a fabulous interior designer, she is open minded, courteous of your opinion and ideas, she is punctual! From start to finish she was a great communicator and ensured my bathroom remodel was exactly what I wanted. Shelley gets 5 stars because she and her contractor were fabulous to work with. I will be working with her again.

Misty D

I was extremely happy with my experience with Shelley Sass Designs! She is very professional as well as very personable. I moved into a new home and was starting over with almost every room in the house in terms of furniture, lighting and decor. We met several occasions to discuss my style, budget and everything I hoped to accomplish. Shelley was always available to bounce ideas around and provided very honest feedback on items I had found. She completely understood my vision was a great partner throughout the whole process.

Deborah P

Shelley was a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend anyone looking for an interior designer. She has an impeccable eye, and yet is also super practical and budget conscious. Shelley will listen to your ideas about color palette, furniture, overall look, etc. She really listens and addresses each of your thoughts. She’s patient and explains everything and provides additional information when necessary – she is very good about providing monthly detailed accounts and invoices of how she spent her time. The hours allocated to each task were completely in line with my expectations and her fees are very fair. In addition, she provided great recommendations for other service professionals. Shelley has a great sense of style and was very detailed oriented including accessories and art work. My home looks beautiful and stylish and is also very comfortable. I would work with Shelley again and highly recommend her.

Myrice G

Shelley helped us redecorate our family room and kitchen dining area. She was flexible, attentive, and very helpful in selecting colors, tradesmen, tile, fabrics and rug. She worked with me in my very particular aesthetic and made the rooms work together in a way I could not have achieved on my own. She's super punctual and always follows through on her commitments.

Todd D

I hired Shelley Sass Designs to help me with multiple small tasks around my home. These included a new sofa, new hardware in the guest powder room, painting the powder room, new light fixtures, new fabrics for throw pillows, dining room chair pads and a window seat pad and overall rearrangement of my artwork. I found Shelley to be totally professional, efficient and outstanding at her job. She quickly assessed my own personal style and worked with me to create the atmosphere that I wanted. She was an absolute delight to work with and I look forward to my next project with her and to a long term relationship. I would recommend her to ny friends and family without any reservations!

Howard T

Shelley is amazing!!! We used her for a master bath remodel which turned out incredible. She helped guide us through the entire process including finding a talented contractor, design and picking out tile, etc. We could not be happier with the results!!

Natasha L

Our old fashioned master bathroom was in need of serious help. Shelley Sass was recommended to me by a neighbour and from our very first meeting I knew our project was in great hands. Shelley is a great communicator, creative and works extremely hard. Shelley listened carefully to our ideas and needs, really helping us to define and execute our vision for the bathroom. From choosing tiles to faucets Shelley saved us so much time (and money) by narrowing down the choices for us. Shelley is very proactive and ordered all of our bathroom items before the builders even started, so there were none of the usual delays or problems with deliveries. Shelley’s contractor is professional, hardworking with impeccable attention to detail. We were given a detailed project plan and Shelley was fantastic at overseeing the project for us. Our bathroom is a dream come true, the perfect addition to our house. Our next project for Shelley is a new home office. We can't wait to get started !

Victoria W

Shelley is a great person to know and an amazing designer! Shelley was with us at the beginning of the purchase of our new home. It was Shelley's designing ability, her foresight to see beyond what the home initially looked like when we bought it, to what it could look like with the right touches, that created the perfect style for us with warmth and comfort that we enjoy now. Shelley worked together with our contractor as our new home was being renovated, making recommendations for lighting, faucets, mirrors, vanities, etc. From the flooring, to the knobs, to the bedding and furniture, Shelley worked with our budget and our taste to create our dream home. I am so thankful to be able to work with Shelley and highly recommend her to anyone looking for excellent designing services.

Sheila H

I had a very long list of items to tackle in my house and Shelley attended to every single one! It turned out to be the perfect REFRESH and Shelley made it very easy. She was just as attentive with the small projects as with the big ones. We selected some various furniture pieces for my downstairs (beautiful!), helped me select a paint color for the interior, and supervised two bathroom remodels. The bathrooms turned out fabulous. I will definitely call Shelley again.

Judy M

Shelley is our go to Stager for our Real Estate Listings. We have been working with her for a number of years and she has been instrumental in making our listings look their best with minimal downtime. She works really well with our clients and is sensitive with their personal connection to the home and their budget. When we get asked for a referral from other Listing Agents we always provide Shelley's contact information. Please don't hesitate to give her a call not just to prepare a Real Estate Listing but for your own personal home.

We are thrilled with the results and especially appreciated her focus on value without compromising any quality. She is highly organized, provided beautiful ideas and always followed through very promptly. We loved working with Shelley – she is amazing and a fabulous interior designer!

Janet Perlman

Shelley is a true gem! She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and has exquisite taste. She can work with any style home and can help you update and complete the look you are trying to achieve, all within, or even under budget! She is extremely professional and detail oriented, and no minute detail is overlooked. She has great resources, unique and innovative ideas, and a wonderful team of professionals (electrician, installer, etc.) who work together to complete the project in a very timely manner. Shelley is readily available for questions and consultations and makes you feel you are her one and only priority! I really appreciated her quick response time, for an impatient person as myself this is a true benefit! Shelley's lively personality makes working with her so much fun, it is a true pleasure and a most enjoyable experience! Best ratings and highest recommendation for this ultimate professional and passionate designer!
