Meet The Designer

"Everyone's Entitled To Great Design" ---Shandra Ward, CEO/Principle Designer

My name is Shandra Ward I am the CEO/Principal Designer for Signature Designs Interiors + Events + Custom Decor. Inspired by my father, who is an engineer, my mother, who was extremely crafty, and my Grandmother, who was very stylish, I knew I wanted to be a designer of all things beautiful.

After graduating from the Houston Community College with a degree in Interior Design, my passion for design and my eagerness to want to learn more led me to continue my education and receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Houston.  With a formal art background, based in art history and design, I began my career as a set designer for local theater companies, as well as designing storefront windows.  I worked in my father's company as a Project Manager and Designer. Eventually, I decided to start my own design firm, Signature Designs.

Rather than just designing "pretty spaces", I believe in creating real living environments, everyone is entitled to great design. With an exceptional eye for detail, I am most inspired by the process of problem-solving and working methodically in accomplishing what seems impossible.  My approach to each project is with a fresh perspective to create something delightful, unexpected, and functional.

In addition to designing interiors, I have cultivated an equally impressive reputation as an event designer, set stylist, and graphic designer.  I have also created my own line of stylish party decor, Party Elements, that's available online and I am currently working on creating my own line of stylish wallpaper designs.

When I'm not designing or treasure hunting, I love cooking with my son, traveling, and brunching with the girls.
