Shannon's Story

Hi there! I'm Shannon, owner of Your Planned Home. I'm excited to share my story with you as we embark on a journey to create a comfortable, organized, and stylish living environment that perfectly aligns with your needs and aspirations.

​My journey in the world of organization and design began with a personal experience that profoundly impacted me. Witnessing my parents transition to a much smaller home in an independent living community, I realized the importance of creating a smooth and seamless process during such life-changing events. I knew then that I had the skills and the heart to help others like them, to bring comfort, functionality, and beauty into their new homes.​

When working with my clients, I put my heart and soul into the task of creating a harmonious living space that truly represents them. My mission is to design their new homes using their existing furniture, ensuring they feel a sense of familiarity and connection with their cherished belongings.

​In my approach to floor plan design, I draw upon both interior design and space planning principles, ensuring that every inch of the floor plan is utilized efficiently and purposefully. The balance between aesthetics and functionality is at the core of my work, and I believe that a well-designed space can significantly enhance one's quality of life.

I understand the sentimental value of certain pieces of furniture and decor in our lives. These cherished items hold memories and stories that make a house a home. My utmost priority is to preserve as many of those special pieces as possible that hold a place in my clients' hearts, seamlessly integrating them into a smaller scale design.

In my practice, I aim to empower my clients with a concrete plan for their new living spaces, eliminating any guesswork. Together, we explore various options and possibilities, ensuring that every decision is intentional and well-informed. I take the time to listen to their desires, preferences, and aspirations, creating a customized plan that aligns with their lifestyle and individuality.

So, if you find yourself facing a significant life transition like downsizing, moving to a new home, or simply seeking a transformation in your current living space, I am here to help you navigate the process with ease and excitement. Together, we'll embark on a journey to design a space that reflects your unique essence and fulfills your practical needs.

Thank you for visiting my site, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and transform your living space into something truly extraordinary. Get in touch, and let's create a home that feels like an authentic reflection of your beautiful life.
