Shelly David from CIH is a visionary. Upon our first meeting she was able to translate my vision into something unbelievably grand with scrupulous detail. Her energy is infectious and did not waver.
The entire design process was done with ease and near seamless. The burden was light with immaculate results. With an eye for quality furnishings and design I now enjoy a condo note worthy of Architectural Digest.

Creativity and ingenuity are two traits which led me to choosing Shelly Dávid and the CIH Design team for our design project. From start to finish, the project was handled efficiently and professionally. We are thrilled with the final results, and the lighting and every other design element she chose for us is stunning, yet intentional. We will definitely hire them again for our next design project, coming up soon! More...

Shelly selected the furnishings and finishes for most of my home. I love her aesthetic and everything looks really, really wonderful. The practicality of the fabrics and the design is an issue and it took quite a bit of time to get everything completed but the end result is the happy, colorful home of my dreams. More...

The woman behind CIH designs is amazing! When I hired Shelly to decorate my home, she did more than decorate, she made it come alive.
Her work is a piece of artistic genius. She is a master at her craft. Working with her is a delight as she embraces it with passion, creativity and vigor. It is evident she loves what she does. She will work hard for you and go the extra mile to make sure you are pleased. I was honored to work with such a talented and passionate decorator. Beautiful work. I am in awe!

Shelly has a unique eye, and a flair for the dramatic. She brings spaces alive, infusing high end details with a touch of whimsy into every project I've had the pleasure of seeing.

I cannot speak highly enough about the design skill and cutting edge work I've seen not only in the work we had Shelly do for us, but also in that of our friends.

We now have gorgeous lighting that sets the perfect tone in our rooms, as well as a gorgeous master bedroom that is a quiet and beautiful retreat at the end of every day. Shelly knew what would be perfect in each area of our living spaces and helped define our style into an ideal living space.

I had the pleasure of engaging CIH Design to facilitate the complete renovation of our Caribbean resort facility. Our club has had a long standing reputation for understated elegance, so our board took extra time selecting the right firm to carry out the renovations. The principles at CIH could not have been more attentive to our concerns and decorative needs. They brought a fresh approach to the project and yet respected the member’s desire to not make a complete departure from the clubs history. Once the design plan was approved, the implementation of the project was effortless and enjoyable. All project items were delivered on time and met or exceeded expectations. I can honestly say I look forward to working with CIH again when our next renovation comes to term. More...


We have an initial meeting to discuss goals, deign style, budget and timeline. I then devise a plan that suit the individual client's needs. We can prepare photo realistic renderings of the proposed plan to assist in visualizing the completed project. We then procure, order, implement and install the approved design plan.
