Shelley Morris Interiors
Shelley Morris Interiors orchestrates rooms rich in texture and refined furnishings. Based in Fairfield County, Connecticut, the firm collaborates with a roster of notable East Coast architects supported by a talented team of design specialists including upholsterers, millwork craftsmen, custom furniture makers, ceramicists and fine artists. Known for her use of subtle color and collected objects—from African tribal headdresses to 19th century Majolica platters—Morris has designed homes and apartments ranging in style from Colonial-inspired traditional to artist’s loft modern. Meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to service are the designer’s hallmarks and why many clients return time and again.

Morris has completed a wide range of projects throughout the New York metropolitan area, New England and California. She currently is working with clients to design homes in Connecticut, the Hamptons, Westchester County and New York City. A graduate of the interior design program at Parsons School of Design in New York, Morris founded her residential interiors practice in 1992. The designer, who also studied fine art, is passionate about travel, foreign cultures and the history of furniture and architecture, interests reflected in her eclectic interiors.

Shelley Morris can personally address a project of any scope and size, working as a design consultant on an hourly basis. She advises on elements of living such as color palettes, furniture arrangement, art selection and display, accessorizing or updating a room, finding the right antiques, selecting kitchen and bathroom fixtures or designing custom window treatments. Every interior design assignment, in fact, is billed on an hourly design fee basis, with no additional percentages charged for purchases such as furniture or expenses including construction or custom craftsmanship. This process is a rarity of value and integrity in the interior design field, which Morris takes pride in.

Morris’s projects have been featured extensively in publications including Bedford Magazine; Colonial Homes; the Connecticut, Hamptons and Westchester editions of Cottages & Gardens; Decorating Ideas; Design Times; East Coast Home; Fairfield County Home; Westchester Magazine’s Home & Garden; and Woman’s Day Special Publications including Walls, Windows & Floors.
