About us

Established in 1985, Helen Sharritt Interiors has been designing for over 35 years, with practices in the Chicagoland and San Francisco Bay area, including wine country in northern California.

With graduate degrees from UC Berkeley and the New York School of Interior Design, Helen Sharritt puts years of design experience to work for you, creating a personalized home environment for you and your family.

In most cases, your home is your biggest investment. Why wouldn’t you hire the best, so that you:

  • Can set yourself apart from the pack. Have your home be a standout. Not be full of trends, that are over before you complete the project. Not hold up because it was not quality to begin with. Wouldn’t you rather, have a home that reflects your taste and style for years to come? Be quick to sell, if the need arises. For top dollar!
  • Can work with the best people in the trades. There is not hit or miss when finding a contractor, tile setter, stone mason, or flooring specialist. I can beat the prices you are getting and give you the service you will learn to expect!
  • Do not have hindsight at the end of a project. “Oh, I wish I’d thought of that.” I’ll make sure we have all these conversations on the front end, when they are easy to spot and less expensive to correct. No change orders!

Clients who have worked with Helen Sharritt Interiors wouldn’t dream of trying to do it themselves. It simply is not worth it. Using HSI makes designing, remodeling, or new construction a breeze. No horror stories, you’ll get a seamless experience from beginning to end!

Helen Sharritt Interiors specializes in helping you create a relaxing home environment that is beautiful, functional, and completely personalized to your tastes. Rather than designing your home to look like a picture in a magazine, we focus on creating the home you have always dreamed of enjoying.

Our resource network lets us deliver goods and services at costs well below what you could find on your own. We can locate in minutes what could take you months to discover.

  • I purchased my home in Santa Rosa in 1989 and have done minor remodeling projects to update the house over the years. I never consulted anyone to help me and that was a mistake. I saw a few homes that Helen had remodeled and was extremely impressed with the outcomes of her work. I was Continue Reading

  • Initially, I wasn’t sure if I would benefit from the help of a designer. Redoing much of my home was already a large project, my budget was limited, and my only goal was to make my outdated home feel updated, fresh, and comfortable. However, when it came time to begin, I soon became overwhelmed in knowing where to start or where my dollars Continue Reading

  • As a bachelor moving into a new place I found Helen’s advice to be invaluable. Her shepherding me through the process was delightful. First she came and took a look at the furnishings I had and the style that I liked. Then when she advised me about everything from paint to carpeting to appliances it all blended Continue Reading
