Get to Know Shannon Frappied, Our Senior Interior Designer
We sat down with Senior Interior Designer Shannon Frappied to learn more about her work as a designer and shed light on her personal aesthetic. Shannon reveals her favorite part of designing residential spaces for clients, and why mixing old with new is the way to her heart.
1. Your role at Acampora Interiors is Senior Interior Designer. Tell us what that means.
As Senior Interior Designer, my job is to create a space for our clients that helps illustrate the story of their lives and blends their aesthetic and lifestyle, while getting to understand the bones of their home to help elevate it.
2. What is your favorite part of the job?
I love receiving a call a few weeks after our clients’ final installation, when they’ve had time to settle in. Hearing how they’re using their new spaces and the meaning their home takes on with new purpose is incredibly rewarding. It’s a special moment knowing you made their home a comfortable and cherished space for years to come.
3. What are some of your hobbies and passions outside of work?
My happy place is when I’m antiquing. If hunting for antiques were a sport, then I’m leading the pack. I love finding that special piece to give it a second life. Beyond antiquing, traveling, reading, journaling and being by any body of water is where you’ll find me on the weekends.
4. In your opinion, what are some of the most versatile accessories to use for styling?
I love using catchalls and vases around the home. Catchalls are perfect for providing a landing place for small, personal items that typically lead to cluttered surfaces. Vases allow you to add a lovely single stem flower or full arrangement for that eye-catching moment.
5. How would you define your personal interior design style?
I’m a traditionalist at heart, though I love layering in modern and eclectic pieces to keep the space feeling fresh. Pairing old with new is what I’m all about.
6. What’s a fun fact that people might not know about you?
My family nickname is “Nays”. It’s a name that’s been shortened over the years stemming from Sha-nay-nay.
