Ellis Interiors

Design Philosophy

Creating beautifully appointed interior spaces is my passion, one that is very personal and client based. There is no “cookie cutter “ approach to my business. Each project reflects the client’s personality and lifestyle. It might be a classically elegant living or dining space, a relaxing den or media room, a whimsical nursery, an edgy teen’s bedroom, a modern loft space, game day unit or vacation home.

Each project has three elements to success: clear communication of the client’s goals, a project plan which is executed in a timely manner and adherence to budget guidelines. My goal is exceed the client’s expectations. Please read a few client comments under the Testimonials tab.


me coverDesigning residential and commercial spaces in Birmingham and the surrounding areas for the past 13 years has been an exciting and evolving environment. After graduating from the University of Alabama in 1988 with a major in Business and a concentration in Interior Design. I began a working career led by “God’s direction”.

Following a ten-year pharmaceutical career, I began to work in Real Estate Development 1998. I bought and sold properties in need of renovations. During this time I began assisting purchasers with their home and business interior decorating / building needs. Combining my education, real estate work experience and enthusiasm for bringing together beautiful interior and exterior living spaces.

Ellis Interiors was born from a natural talent and sincere desire to create unique, comfortable spaces that my clients thoroughly enjoy.


Sherri began assisting me with a bathroom addition and kitchen renovation. She worked on the layouts, color schemes, tile selection, accents, and furniture.  After taking the addition and renovation from good to great, she assisted me with the rest of the house.  My expectations were exceeded in every way.  I even had her work her magic on my lake house at Lake Martin.

Having Sherri offer her suggestions and expertise was the best decision I have ever made in enhancing the look, value and enjoyment of my homes. Her attention to detail is extraordinary.

We have worked with Sherri for the past eight years.  She has done both large and small scale work for us, from finishing our basement -both the design and decorating – to simply pulling rooms “together.”  Her creative vision is first-class and I am always amazed at her great ideas and suggestions.  She is extremely efficient, professional and dependable!  Most importantly, Sherri is a great listener, which is integral when working with an interior designer.    She is a pleasure to work with, and I am always proud to recommend her to friends because I know she will do what it takes to help them achieve their decorating goals.

I have worked with Sherri on 2 large projects, renovating our last home and again when we built our current home. I LOVE working with Sherri!!! She is so fun and easy to work with. I completely trust her judgment and her ideas. She quickly grasped  my taste which made things much less stressful! I would highly recommend her for any decorating job and will use her for any decorating needs I may have in the future!!

Sherri Ellis’ decorating is absolutely fantastic. Her taste is impeccable. Sherri works with a great sense of urgency, and I never had to remind her or follow up about anything. She was easy to work with, yet she was also very comfortable making suggestions when I made choices that she thought weren’t the best. Sherri was very mindful when it came to money. She spent my money as if it were her own. I was so fortunate to have found her, and anybody who knows me will know, I don’t say things to “Be nice.”
