Use the good china. Your life IS the special occasion!
Hi! I'm Sally Sotnek!
I'm a North Shore Interior Designer who helps make every day at home even more special!
I want to help you fall in love with home.
Whether it’s the house you’ve been tolerating for years or a new-to-you abode, I use my fine arts and design education to intuitively weave your story into joyful, timeless spaces for everyday living.
I’ve lived, worked, and traveled in many countries, absorbing the varied cultures, colors, aesthetics, and traditions. These experiences help me work with your treasures and vision to create a well-crafted, timeless story in your home.
I’m a dreamer, a doer, a creative, a crafter, and a hands-on problem solver. I listen carefully and intuitively to understand what you want home to feel like, and what needs to be done to get there.
I create spaces that are special, but not precious.
From the spectacular hand-blown chandelier to the beautiful, luxurious sofa reupholstered in ridiculously durable velvet to the elegant barware on the sideboard, everything is very carefully selected to be the best with everyday functionality -special but not precious!
I’d love to transform your space into a timeless sanctuary, a memory-making oasis, and cozy respite you’ll love living in and sharing with the people in your life.
What Sets Me Apart
My clients consistently tell me that I’m not like any interior designer they’ve spoken with before.
They tell me things like:
“You just get me.”
“You brought to life how I want my space to feel.”
“I feel seen, heard, and understood.”
“Did you just read my mind!?”
I listen intuitively and empathetically and understand the direction you want to go, and then I work with you as a collaborative partner to bring your vision to life.
When we work together, you’ll experience:
An anything but cookie-cutter approach.
A collaboration of your vision and ideas you’ve never even thought of to make it all come alive!
My problem-solving skills in action for any obstacles that come our way.
My vast visual background, including studies in fine arts and graphic design.
My love for houses - old and new, architecture, and what “home” means for you!
An easy-to-work-with, responsive, thoughtful, calm, and passionate designer who gets things done on time, on budget, and with the quality you’re looking for.
I also love making the process fun and enjoyable, at every turn possible! But you probably could’ve guessed that by now.
Let’s create your vision of home.
What My Clients Have to Say About Working with Me
”What a treasure to find a designer who can set out a reasonable array of options within your own framework and help you articulate your reactions. Sally facilitated our decisions, never forced them, and helped us find the choices that satisfied both my sweet, opinionated husband and myself!”
- Jean D, Andover MA
“Sally’s a very thoughtful designer. She understands your taste and works with you to create beautiful rooms to live in! I wish I’d called her right away when I moved into my first house because I love the rooms she designed for me. (I did not make the same mistake twice, and when I bought my second home, she was the first person I called!”
- Susan F. Haverhill MA
