Interior Designer Sherri Bradford, Allied Member ASID, is a Michigan native who has been with Vogue Interior Design since 2010. Her experience profile includes 22 years in the design field creating interiors for new residences and managing and making selections for remodeling projects. Sherri’s expertise includes an extensive background in furniture and window treatment design.

She firmly believes that each of her clients’ homes should be as individualized and unique as the people who reside in them.
“I love to create residences that are comfortable for my clients, their family and friends,” said Sherri. “When I manage a remodeling design project for a client, it is always gratifying to be able to remove various elements from the home the client no longer cares for and to make selections that transform their spaces into something new and wonderful. For me, an important part of that process involves filling the home with colors, textural elements, furnishings and finishes that make the environment better suited to their wants, needs and expectations. It is important to me to fully understand a client’s vision and to be able to provide a look that truly reflects what they want in their home. That is the truest measure of success in a design.”
