Visionary design takes a lot of inspiration, and a fair degree of risk. Playing the middle ground usually makes for unimpressive spaces.
Dallas interior designer Sherry Hayslip, ASID, IIDA, brings 30-plus years of inspiration to her work, and creates marvelous residential and commercial spaces. She knows how to walk that fine line of risk for extraordinary results.
“Being completely safe seldom results in the best design; I always want to include something a little unexpected or even outrageous,” Hayslip said. “One reason I love design is because it opens so many doors to new experiences, fascinating people, unexpected collections, and interests.”
Hayslip is the owner and principal designer of Sherry Hayslip Interiors, a firm she established in 1974. Since then, this passionate creative has dedicated herself to continuing education and learning.
“I can’t help myself! There is an endless amount of knowledge out there, and I want to absorb as much as I can before I start forgetting it,” she said. “The world of design is constantly changing, and I find it fascinating to try and see where it has been and where it is headed.”
