Meet Alisha Taylor

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 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 some day.” 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.
