Our Story

I believe that environments should reflect the lives and lifestyles of my clients. My inspiration is derived from nature and so, nature’s elements have been incorporated in much of my work. Design Elements, Ltd. is a combination of many senses that creates a synergy for good design…. sight, feel, hearing, and smell.

Someone once told me, “you create experiences for people”, and that really resonated with me. Those five words sum up what Design Elements, Ltd is all about and what I enjoy most about this business and my clients. I create inspired spaces that will enhance your lifestyle at home or at work.

When We Started

Design Elements, Ltd. is a business that originated in the winter of 2007 while I had the great fortune of living in beautiful Lake Tahoe California.  The innate designer in me came to life as I experienced a life style of both richness and simplicity that was magnified by the enormous beauty that is the Lake, mountains and the great outdoors.  My design work has been featured on the cover of Homes & Land/Lake Tahoe and in the Tahoe Daily Tribune’s business section, as well as appearing in The Record-Courier in Minden, Nevada.

My Goals for Clients

My desire when I work with clients is to truly ‘create an experience’ that is unique for them that results in an elevation in design sense that they couldn’t have achieved on their own. By questioning, listening and executing a design plan that is perfect for them, Design Elements, Ltd. can live up to it’s name.  Simply put, good design makes you feel good.

What We Do

Design Elements, Ltd. is an interior decorating/design, home staging & redesign company that can execute on many levels. From color consultations to consults on complete remodels and everything in between. I have experience with space planning, style identification, furniture and fabric recommendations, lighting, flooring and fixtures selections, along with recommending the perfect case goods and accessory options for your home or business.

My vision is simple…implementing passionate interior decorating and design that elevates the spirit!

I started in beautiful Lake Tahoe, CA, and am now bringing that West Coast influence to Central PA! Contact me today so that I can deliver a ‘Creatively Inspired Space’ for your home or office.

Our Story | Design Elements, Ltd.

"Sherry Smith, owner of Design Elements, Ltd., has been instrumental in selling homes for me, especially considering the difficult market we are in. The homes she has designed and completely furnished have been luxury homes. Sherry grasps the theme of the home immediately and her furnishing choices reflect that. Everything she does is of the latest trends, very tastefully presented, and reflects high end mountain decor. She continues to meet our budget parameters and timelines. It would be my pleasure to continue to recommend her to my clients and colleagues."
