Philosophy


Shila Griffith

My name is Shila Scarlet Griffith, I believe that the opportunities of design should inspire homeowners and business owners, not overwhelm them.

I am a formally educated and trained, NCIDQ certified and LEED accredited interior designer.

Before I started SG23 Design, I worked in award-winning high-end residential design, hospitality and corporate interior design. My clients value thoughtful, custom-tailored design, attention to detail and our rapport with architects, builders and contractors. My team and I love exploring different design opportunities, but most of our work is based in residential, corporate and multi-family focused interior design.

In preparation of starting my own design studio I learned to code in order to build my portfolio website. I’ve honed those skills and as a result, my studio has grown and now offers brand identity and website design for growing businesses.
