Shannon Murray Petruzello
Shannon Murray Petruzello, Principal and Designer, graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S. in Merchandising and Design Management. Shannon has over 15 years of experience in Design & Merchandising in the Fashion Industry. After 5 years of traveling to Europe and Asia designing Men's apparel for Macy's Department Stores, Shannon gained valuable insight and technical expertise with textiles. This is where she gained her love of fabric, pattern and color. This passion grew at Tommy Hilfiger, USA where she was Vice President of Merchandising for over 10 years where she had intensive input with the design of the garment, showroom design and color palettes. After a fulfilling career in the Fashion Industry, Shannon funneled this design energy into her true passion of Interior Design. Shannon bases her love of designing homes on the philosophy that a person's home should be their sanctuary. SM Interiors was founded on this philosophy in February 2007 and she has turned homes into sanctuaries in Southwest Florida, Westchester County, Connecticut and New Jersey.
