We had the good fortune of connecting with Alisha Taylor and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alisha, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
Kindness! Owning a luxury interior design business we work with not only luxury clients, but builders, architects, vendors and laborers on the jobsite. Being kind to everyone no matter what their role is in the project means that every aspect of a project comes out to its potential, sharing in the pride of a great design and project complete at the end!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Alisha is the magic behind Alisha Taylor Interiors. She has been running her design studio in Arizona for almost 20 years and has been recognized for her award-winning designs locally and nationally. With a B.A. in Interior Design and extensive CAD training, Alisha enjoys combining the technical aspect of construction with the creative side of interior design to create stunning homes incorporate everything from tile designs to gorgeous furniture.

Alisha’s passion for design started when she was in the 6th grade and she ‘redesigned’ her classroom furniture plan on the back of a school assignment. She arrived at school the next day to find the classroom rearranged based on her design. A note was left on her desk from her teacher that read, “You should think about being an architect or designer some day.” She has been creating and redesigning spaces ever since.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Scottsdale is rich with places to see and experience. The art galleries in old town are amazing and inspirational! The various restaurants scattered throughout Scottsdale are some of the best in the country! I would take advantage of the Scottsdale based resorts that capture the desert lifestyle and beauty!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband and our crazy blended family. I was a single mom for 9 years running my own business, my 4 kids cheering me on through the ups and downs of business then when I met my now husband and his kids I got another layer of support and encouragment.
