My interior design career began with Shane Reilly Inc., a bi-coastal interior design firm founded in 2003 with offices in New York and San Francisco. We focused on high-end, high-speed projects, such as a penthouse in NYC's Bloomberg building and an estate in San Francisco's Marina district. I was selected for various design events, such as the San Francisco Decorators Showcase House and DIFFA's Dining by Design, and published my first book, Inspired High-End Interior Design, a collection of 80 interior designer interviews. Driven by the lack of interior design information online, in 2007 I launched Decorati.com, which provided access to trade-only home furnishing products typically sold in design centers and an easy way for consumers to solicit proposals from professional interior designers. We also published Decorati Access, a widely-read interior design e-newsletter and blog. In 2011, Decorati Inc. was acquired by Gilt Groupe, the leading luxury flash sales company, to relaunch Gilt Home. I led several new business initiatives as Gilt’s VP of Home through 2012.
My press coverage has included Fast Company, Martha Stewart Radio, NY Post, Interior Design Magazine, The New York Times, Traditional Home, TechCrunch, Silicon Alley Insider, Financial Times, Bloomberg Market, Luxe, Spaces Magazine, NBC, HGTV and Departures. I have been a frequent speaker at industry events and a guest blogger for AOL's Shelterpop and Forbes.com. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.shanesstudio.com
