In 2011, Sherrell Neal founded Sherrell Design Studio, a Cypress, Texas-based firm specializing in full-scale residential interior design. With her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Houston, she continues honing her natural ability to create simple elegance. Growing up in Houston and spending much of her childhood in New Orleans, she spent a great deal of time with her father on a remodel job, or in the workshop, where she developed a heart for design. Her passion for quality and craftsmanship have led her to develop relationships with some of the area's best makers, as well as the industry's leading manufacturers.
Sherrell strives to emphasize function, while layering simplicity with sophistication. Her endless attention to detail, and the use of natural materials helped to form her point of view. Her commitment to the client relationship allows her to tailor every project to reflect their personal style. Sherrell believes a thoughtfully designed, comfortable space can dramatically improve the lives of the people who live in it, and that everyone deserves this experience.
Sherrell travels regularly, finding antique or unique pieces to support her growing business. These items are blended with original artwork, custom upholstery and fine textiles to create each space. Sherrell designs furniture, accessories, lighting, and an occasional work of art. She enjoys creating something new out of something old, or something original out of something common. Her workshop is always busy restoring, repurposing, or building the things she envisions.
