My name is Summer Shown and I am an interior designer and the owner of Inside the Design.  


I specialize in creating beautiful and functional living spaces that evoke joy and inspire their owners to spend more time in their homes with each other, as well as with friends and family, hosting all who enter with pride and love.  My goal is for my clients to be proud of their homes, feeling comfortable and free of stress in the spaces that I design for them so that their favorite getaway is actually their own home.

Life is crazy busy and not everyone has the time to focus solely on designing a space in their home with all of the other responsibilities and obligations that our busy lives include. Clients come to me for design assistance because they want client-specific, personal designs that include quality furnishings, beautiful fabric and unique art and they want me to help them bring a space to life for them.  I firmly believe that details make the difference in making a space a home rather than just a house.  Details inspire incredible, aesthetically pleasing functionality and I enjoy taking a vision of who the homeowner is and designing their home into a reality.   I love leaving a project knowing that the space has been enhanced and elevated to improve how my client spends their time in their home.


I have a certification in interior design and have been designing spaces for over 12 years.  I moved back to my hometown, Greer, SC, with my husband, Steven, and our dog, Molly, a few years ago after living in Charleston, SC for 14 years.  The Upstate is a beautiful, ever-changing place to live and I am proud to be a resident of it once again.
