About Me

Hi, I'm Shan.

Originally from South Africa. I moved to Dubai in 2006.

Before launching Shan Carlsson Interiors I worked in the customer service industry and my job took me around the world.

I love to travel. These days I spend my summers between Sweden and Portugal, drawing inspiration from each, and there's plenty.

I'm a real home body at heart, which has connected me to this industry on a personal level. 

Style wise, a true treasure seeker, I love curated spaces, mixing old and new, cosy, calm, earthy and organic, down to earth interiors.


 Design Philosophy

Functional and beautiful, in that order.

 I strive to create timeless interiors that help people to live well in a home that is comfortable, warm and inviting.

My intention is to design spaces that are livable and that evoke a special feeling, a sense of calm and contentment, away from the chaos of the outside world. A place where you can't wait to get home to, a refuge after a busy day where you can exhale and recharge. 

Our home should support and enrich our lives, and resonate with your personal style and values. There's no one-size-fits-all approach—each design should reflect what fulfills you the most.

I invite you to explore what 'home' truly means to you, and together, we will design spaces that not only look beautiful but also inspire and uplift your everyday.
