We believe that homes are sacred spaces, and should be designed with this in mind.


Specializing in residential design, and recently featured in Luxury Home Quarterly, the creative work of Diedre Shaw Interiors can be seen in exquisite homes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Combining the art and science of design, client inspiration and the fuel of creative muse, the firm's hallmark interior is a masterful balance of luxury and comfort, style and individuality that reaches beyond the ordinary to genuinely reflect the passions and personalities of the owners and their lifestyles.

Diedre Shaw, owner and principal designer, launched her design business in 1994 after studying interior design at UC Berkeley. Diedre also holds a degree in literature from UCLA. Before her career in interior design, she enjoyed an earlier profession in the fashion industry, modeling throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. A passionate lifelong student of ballet, Diedre was also awarded full membership to the Royal Academy of Dance, London.

The study and work in each of these creative disciplines - literature, fashion and dance - as well as the exposure to the astounding architecture and interiors in many countries along the way - honed in Diedre not only an appreciation for beauty, but a need to express and create it as well.

Fueled by the most imporant ingredient - imagination - yet aware of the importance of discipline in every small detail, Diedre Shaw Interiors employs the concepts of juxtaposition and balance - classic and fresh, old and new, scintillating and comforting - with a client's vision and persona to produce a unique and compelling interior. It is our belief that luxury and beauty at home elevate and enhance everyday experiences to an art - the art of living well.


We has worked with Diredre through the whole house. She has the great sense for the color and the style we want. She is on the front line of the design trend and gave us great choices of furnitures, fabrics and light fixtures. She listened to us patiently and paid attention on our life style. I can tell she puts her heart into our house, even for the kids' rooms. The people working with her are also very professional and experienced.
