Our Approach

Project Wish List
To get started, we meet on site to determine the scope of work, project wish list and budget. Designer begins a preliminary layout for next meeting.

Mood Meeting
To design the perfect environment, we ask our client(s) how they want the space to make them feel. Designer presents inspiration photos to establish preferred style, color palette, details & features that will create that mood.

Putting Pen to Paper
Designer and client finalize drawings and make all design selections for the project.

Thrive in Your Environment
Prestige Home Design brings your vision to life!

Our Team

Shawn Ballard - Owner

Born and raised in Brookfield, CT - Shawn developed a passion for the outdoors and being creative through building at a young age. Jumping into the building industry at 20 years old, Shawn started his own construction business and successfully operated it for the next 15 years. During that time, he was offered a dream opportunity to work with a local timber frame company. As a consultant for Harvest Moon Timber Frames, he traveled the United States to lead and advise local building crews through the initial framing stage of dozens of timber frame structures. Projects including barns up to 40,000 sq. feet in size with beautiful details - such as sky high cupollas. Also, the restoration and renovations of many historic New England homes. In 2011, a family wedding brought Shawn to Rehoboth Beach, DE for the first time. A lost (& found!) dog would lead him to meet his future wife, Amy, and many more trips to Delaware. After relocating in 2012, Shawn joined Schell Brothers as a Special Projects Manager. One of his most memorable projects was building the state-of-the-art Aquatic Center for Sussex Academy of Arts and Sciences in Georgetown. Always an entreprenuerial spirit, Shawn left his project manager position to return to business ownership as a general contractor. With his own customers, Shawn recognized the need for a convenient one-stop shopping experience to select products for all aspects of new home build or renovation projects. That was the beginning of a new interior design business, Prestige Home Design & Cabinetry. A full service design center with a focus on offering quality, unique products and first-class customer service.

With an inaugural round of golf played by Jack, himself! A couple years later, a Marketing Manager position with Dynamic Physical Therapy was a chance to learn about a new industry and gain manangement experience. It was around this time that Amy met Shawn and they began a long-distance relationship while both pursuing their dream career opportunities. Now married and both living in Delaware, Amy is joining Shawn in his passion project and using her talents in Sales & Marketing to spread the word about Prestige Home Design & Cabinetry.
