Welcome to the world of Alisha Taylor Interiors!
We are a luxury, full-service residential interior design firm helping families enhance their lives through timeless interior design. Led by our visionary owner and lead designer, Alisha Taylor, our dynamic team of talented professionals brings a blend of style, innovation, and expertise to every project we undertake!
Alisha is the magic behind Alisha Taylor Interiors. She has been running her design studio in Arizona for almost 20 years and has been recognized for her award-winning designs locally and nationally. With a B.A. in Interior Design and extensive CAD training, Alisha enjoys combining the technical aspect of construction with the creative side of interior design to create stunning homes that incorporate everything from tile designs to gorgeous furniture.
Alisha’s passion for design started when she was in the 6th grade and she ‘redesigned’ her classroom furniture plan on the back of a school assignment. She arrived at school the next day to find the classroom rearranged based on her design. A note was left on her desk from her teacher that read, “You should think about being an architect or designer someday.” She has been creating and redesigning spaces ever since. When not designing, you will find Alisha cheering on her kids in all their activities from baseball to dance, and then escaping with her husband to travel the country to architecturally rich destinations.
The lead of our Design Team is our brilliant Junior Designer, Marti Diehl, whose technical skills are incredibly unmatched. Little did Alisha know how much her (work) life would change when she brought Marti on board in January of 2015. With a four-year design degree and three years of work experience in the field, Marti dove in at Alisha Taylor Interiors and has never looked back! Her sky-high attention to detail and honed technical skills provide a solid foundation for every project she is a part of, including mentoring new designers who have joined the team. Marti loves a good laugh, the next delicious taco shop, and regularly makes time to visit faraway islands and European destinations.
Steering the marketing efforts with design flair is our creative Marketing Director, Rebecca Phillips. Rebecca has handled everything branding, marketing & public relations since February 2021. With an eye for design, she tackles every challenge to ensure our brand best represents our creativity & design process. When she’s not busy developing content strategies, you can find her embarking on global adventures with her beloved hubby, indulging in the latest culinary hotspots in the Valley, and snuggling her 120lb fluffy Newfie, Sophie. With her innovative input and positive energy, Rebecca brings an extra spark of creativity to our team!
Overseeing the business and logistical aspects is our resourceful and detail-oriented Business & Logistics Director, Emma Mauvais [AKA “The Enforcer]. With an unwavering passion for luxury interior design and a knack for turning furniture plans into reality, Emma merges creativity with meticulous planning and orchestrates the flow of our installs, ensuring every detail is flawlessly executed. When she’s not hopping from project to project (never without her trusty clipboard!), Emma enjoys spending time outside, yoga and Pilates, and is a self-proclaimed rooftop restaurant enthusiast.
And assisting with unwavering dedication is our ever-efficient Design Assistant, Mia Schultz, who ensures the seamless execution of our design processes. Born and raised in Illinois, Mia escaped the snow when she moved here 5 years ago … and couldn’t be happier! She attended Arizona State University (Go Devils!), graduating with a B.S. in Interior Design. Mia uses her passionate and proactive thinking to help drive our designs to the finish line. Not only does Mia know the ins and outs of technical skills, but she is devoted to her work and creating authentic spaces for our clients. When she is not at work, she loves the suspense of seeing a new movie, popcorn and slushie in hand, and daydreaming of getting a puppy. Mia is excited for the beginning of the rest of her career here at Alisha Taylor Interiors.
