Shundra Harris Interiors provides residential and commercial Interior Design that elevates LIVE, WORK, and PLAY spaces, building a legacy through knowledge, leadership and diversity in design.

This has been by far my favorite experience overall! She is very detailed and brings new designs to the field. I’ve only encountered new layouts and new tasks to test our potential. She is a very dedicated individual and only delivers quality to the client. Very passionate about her field and giving that extra finishing touch. Her working method is marvelous  easy going and makes the job go by smoothly. Thanks Boss Lady!
