At YAWN we awaken the human spirit through interior design.
Partners since meeting in design school, we have spent nearly three decades collaborating with new and lifelong clients on one-of-a-kind environments. We are a favorite among developers, builders and clients who appreciate personal attention and rely on our distinct visual dialogue and interior editing. We are truly liaisons between a client’s vision and a builder’s work process.Learn More
It is a rare and wonderful thing to find designers with the talent to take vague conceptual ideas and turn them into concrete realities. Their combination of creative spirit and practical execution proves that it can be done and done very well.

YAWN was like our "design therapist" on both our home remodel and Don's dentist office remodel. They took our personality, our creative taste and style and made it a reality. They listened, asked the right questions, then embraced our vision and made it come to life for us. There is not an area of our home we don't thoroughly enjoy. It just feels so much like us. It fits our lifestyle. It fits who we are.

I found, through working with YAWN, that my vision of my project was limited. Bruce and Shannan took my vision, and grew it in ways I never even considered. They created a space that continues to inspire me long after the project has been complete.
We had an exceptional experience with YAWN design studio, inc. We benefited greatly from your expertise. Our office is now an extremely functional space yet filled with a style that inspires all thanks to you!

We are a not for profit organization serving people who have disabilities. Shannan and Bruce quickly became experts in our field as they thoughtfully considered the special needs of our campers and translated that knowledge to our design. They handled every detail of the project so our own work didn't miss a beat.

The execution of the architect's plan is the first step toward implementing an Owner's "dream". Reaching beyond those initial plans requires the integration of the talent necessary to apply the enormous amount of details that result in an outstanding finished product. We could not have achieved the final "portrait" without the benefit of having engaged the designers at YAWN.

Shannan and Bruce were a pleasure to work with. Bruce has an amazing talent with color selection. He chose all of the colors in our home, and we still love them many years after the renovation.

Living in Chicago, we thought it would be easy to find a designer for our re-model; however, it took several months until we found a designer that understood our tastes, brought creative design ideas, appreciated our budget and most importantly was fun to work with.

The team at YAWN turned our blank, institutional space into a cozy, warm setting for our clients. Their dedication to this project was displayed through their creativity, professionalism and immaculate attention to detail.
