sheri tye,


Sheri lends her design and strong project management skills to HBV with a portfolio that includes interior, lighting, furniture, and landscape design. Her professional experience is cross-disciplinary with a BA from Stanford and a PhD from UC Berkeley in Policy Analysis. It was after renovating her own home and garden that Sheri turned to interior design as a career. Sheri loves to mix styles to create unique, personal spaces that are at once modern, functional, and beautiful. She is drawn to neutral tones with accents of color and texture and is often inspired by vintage pieces. Outside of design, Sheri enjoys running, cooking, good conversation, and hiking with her family around the Bay
