Nitza Shawriyeh has been practicing Interior Design for almost 30 years. After receiving her design degree she apprenticed with Robert H. Hering Interiors in San Francisco. There she was able to expand her knowledge of antiques since it was a design firm as well as an antique gallery. As his assistant she worked on many of San Francisco’s best homes. On her own, she participated in the San Francisco Showhouse and two Piedmont Showhouses.
After arriving in New York, Nitza apprenticed for Suzie Frankfurt for four years. In 1990 she was ready to launch her own design firm. With the knowledge that she gained from these two great designers she was able to arrive at her own fresh and distinct style. Since then she has completed multiple projects for an interesting array of clients throughout the country.
Nitza Shawriyeh has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Design from California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco and a B.A. In Liberal Arts from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey.
Nitza grew up in Santiago, Chile and is fluent in Spanish. Her travels all over the world and her background truly influence her sense of style and design.
Nitza has done renovations and design projects concentrating from the biggest to the smallest detail. She values getting to know her clients needs and desires, considering their budget and time frame in order to give them a finished project that they will enjoy for many years to come.
Nitza enjoys working along with her clients to establish the style that most fits their life. She looks at traditional design with a fresh and contemporary approach, making a home elegant yet comfortable and always very functional. She is equally comfortable with creating a modern interior.
She works with a small intimate staff and collaborates with architect Jonathan Bowser on renovation projects. At present the firm is working on a Park Avenue Pre-War apartment and a renovation in Westhampton Beach, New York, as well as many other projects in New York and New Jersey.
