We love our beautiful home because of Tanya Shively. She listened to us, understood our vision, and guided us through making the right choices to implement that vision.
Tanya & Rick McNamee, Scottsdale, AZ
I have worked with Tanya Shively of Sesshu Design Associates on several home projects and renovations on and off for 3 years now. I can’t say enough good things about her. I love her eye for fresh new designs and how she strives to help you make your space feel like your own. She has been professional, dedicated, and passionate about creating a wonderful experience during our renovation projects. I would highly recommend her!
Melissa & MARK Matson, Paradise Valley, AZ
This was my first time working with not only a contractor but a designer and even though I was very nervous with the immensity of the project you both helped not only with the process but the beautiful results. We’re loving … our “new” home! Still walking around and looking at everything and loving it. Can’t decide which room to go sit in and read, guess I’ll just pick a different room everyday!
Susie Sisco, Phoenix, AZ
Tanya has an incredible ability to listen and observe. She was able to interpret what we liked and was able to put together options for us to look at, feel, and use. She played a key role in orchestrating choices for our cabinets, flooring, wall colors, colors and styles for furniture, rugs. It was such an exciting experience. Tanya played a major role in designing our new home-she assisted the builders in some of the specifics of added features. When our friends tell us how beautiful our home is we always acknowledge Tanya- she pulled design elements together – we couldn’t have done it without her!
Scott & Sally Moffat, Scottsdale, AZ
First, and most importantly, they listened and heard what my needs and wants were. They then gave professional direction to accomplish these goals.
Marilyn McRae, Santa Barbara, CA
Tanya was a big help when we redesigned our kitchen. She helped us with contractors and kept an eye on them for us. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with their design needs.
Nancy Runyan, Scottsdale, AZ
I could never have completed the remodel without Tanya’s help. Her exquisite taste and talents proved invaluable in reconstructing this Paradise Valley adobe home.Tanya understood the challenges, concerns, and issues that arose during the remodel of a house built in the 60’s. She worked extremely well with my builders and her organization skills assisted them in getting things accomplished in a timely fashion.
Peter & Debra Gooding, Paradise Valley, AZ
Tanya helped in our interior remodel and decorating project. She listened to what we wanted, did all the foot work and parred down choices for our decisions. We have been extremely pleased with the outcome. She worked well with our contractor and subcontractors. We will continue to use Tanya and recommend her to others.
Tom & Sue Hoecker, Paradise Valley, AZ
Nancy and I are very grateful to you for the wonderful transformation of our house. It is a joy to deal with you and we are overwhelmed by how able you are to find just the right furniture pieces and fabrics. Of course our new living space will remind us of you for the indefinite future.
Bob & Nancy Kinderman, Scottsdale, AZ
Tanya helped in so many ways with the renovations, and by that time we were back in North Dakota for the summer, so we had to rely on her to do a lot of extra work. Tanya made an almost overwhelming job for us fun as we shopped for furniture, flooring, art, accessories, linens and dishes.
Sandy Knoll, Paradise Valley, AZ
I wanted a design that is stylish, comfortable and easy to maintain. Tanya captured this perfectly. Shopping for materials and furniture was stress free as she was able to direct our attention to those areas that would meet our criteria. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sesshu Design.
Maureen Liviniuk, Scottsdale, AZ
Tanya is amazing – I’m in awe of her knowledge and expertise. As much as she’d come up with ideas or my color scheme, she’d pushes the envelope some and the best example is the beautiful grasscloth wall covering in my office – I love it. My office is now my sanctuary, or as I like to call it, my Wo-Man Cave.
Diane Hohmann, Scottsdale, AZ
