Sheryl Allen
Sheryl’s design experience began at an early age growing up with a mother who was an interior designer. Sheryl’s own career began in 1988 when she worked for Bruce Gregga Interiors while attending The International School of Design, both in downtown Chicago. During Sheryl’s time with Bruce Gregga she worked on many residential projects nationally and internationally. This unique experience and exposure to high-end design and furnishings helped shape her own design style and expertise in the field. In 1998 Sheryl started her own firm, Sheryl Allen Interiors, and continued designing in the Chicago area, Midwest, Florida and Arizona. Sheryl always says, “there are many different styles within design but it must be good design”.  After Sheryl and Lisa started Inspire Home and Garden, a home accessory business, they joined forces and expanded Sheryl Allen Interiors. Through great fortune and hard work Lisa and Sheryl have enjoyed many wonderful clients and exciting projects.
