Jill ShieldsShare

Jill Shields is a New York-based interior designer and has been decorating interiors for over 20 years. Her design philosophy is that each interior is a blank canvas that tells a story; these are stories that project warmth & security, showcase special objects acquired, and reflects an atmosphere fitting one’s personality, lifestyle and personal taste.

Jill fosters the connection between herself and each Client, striking a perfect harmonious balance. She has the talent of creating an environment suited to each Client’s specific needs so that each finished project is unique.

Jill was graduated from New York University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Arts Professions. As an undergraduate, she learned about technique, line, color and form as well as a variety of aesthetic values. Her education in the arts continued at Columbia University where she earned her Master of Arts (MA). She takes a special delight in transforming a three dimensional field into an organic, living work of art, using all of the principles learned in school and her experience with dozens of projects over the ensuing years.

Jill’s affinity for design began in childhood; her mother has been a decorator for the past 45 years so it was a natural progression that she followed in her footsteps.

With the rare ability to truly listen to her Clients’ vision, Jill understands and transforms ideas into a completed project that fulfills all pre-determined requirements – aesthetic and practical while adhering to budget.
