We begin by evaluating the company’s brand and target market allowing us to understand the culture we will be designing for. The needed scope of work is cataloged along with the cost per square foot or overall budget allocated. A thorough site survey is conducted generating existing conditions and site information pertinent to our scope of work. Team meetings with other project consultants take place, finalizing all the aspects needed to begin.

We treat every project as a special opportunity to create one of a kind color palettes, finishes, fabric combinations, furnishing and accessories that will be impactful and timeless. All specified products are considered with care from the origin of manufacturing to it’s quality for the end user and the environment and location in which it’s intended for.

What Client’s Say

I feel the design for Canyon Grille really meet the needs of the resort and its guests. We were able to bring a contemporary look to the space without “going over the top” in design. The color palette, design and artwork are current, organic in nature and gives the room a much warmer, comfortable feel. The customer feedback has been very positive.

We began the process of building a home and wanted someone with an interior design background to help during the construction phase as well as the interior design phase. Shannon is very professional, friendly, and always listens to what we think is important. She has great vision and gives us confidence in our decisions as well as providing options that suit our needs. Shannon’s background and education provide her the skills for construction documents or simple sketches. Shannon is very organized and detail oriented. She is also very prompt and always delivers projects on time. We also appreciate what a great communicator she is. We highly recommend PMI for any design needs. We feel thankful to have Shannon as part of our team!

Shannon is so easy to work with. She lets the client take the lead and is exhaustive in her research and developing the idea to make a success. She has extensive knowledge of design and building. She knows fabrics, fabrication, function. She is so punctual and very responsive to time constraints. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I contracted with Payte Miller Interiors for a refresh of my kitchen and remodeling of my living room. The end result exceeded my expectations, Shannon was great to work with and a true collaborator. She is willing to come up with alternatives based on pricing, taste, etc. to ensure the end product meets the needs of the homeowner. I highly recommend Shannon based on the work she did for me.

I have worked with Shannon at Payte Miller Interiors three times (so far) on different jobs, one professional and two personal. Each time she gave great ideas that were always within my/our budget. I would catch myself saying, “I never thought of that before” and loving the ideas she came up with. I appreciate her follow-up and the fact that she takes care of the little details. For example, after we had an issue with the painting contractor she had hired for our home she was on the phone IMMEDIATELY and had someone over to rectify the problem within an hour. She has impeccable taste and is up to date with the latest fashion and colors (which I am not so I appreciate that greatly!!) She is a fantastic designer and I recommend her highly.

Payte Miller Interiors is the best of the best when it comes to interior design in San Diego County. Principal designer Shannon Miller is highly knowledgeable and her skills unsurpassed. She worked diligently with us over a year to understand OUR taste and style. At times she went above and beyond until we were comfortable and perfectly happy with construction intricacy and interior décor. Highly recommended!

As a supplier working with designers can be a nightmare. Or it can be worse than that. Working with Shannon was, instead, a pleasure. She knew what she wanted but she was precise with budget, conscious of the manufacturing process, clear with her design vision. Change orders were handled professionally and the project ended up exactly as we all envisioned it to be, We loved working with her and hope to do so again in the future.

The Bay Club Hotel and Marina hired Shannon Miller in 2012 to help with the redesign of the interiors of three meeting rooms and the hall area. She provided many concepts to us to evaluate. She kept in mind the way the rooms would compliment the theme of the hotel, how long the remodel would take and the cost. She also provided estimates of the costs and contractors to carry out the job. We were all very pleased with the results. We now have meeting rooms that can handle wedding affairs and business meetings. Shannon was very pleasant to work with and spent many hours satisfying the desires of the four partners of the hotel.

I personally enjoyed my relationship with Shannon and would enjoy working with her again. I could highly recommend Shannon Miller

Payte Miller Interiors recently completed a redesign of the interior and exterior improvements and fixtures at the “Positano” condominium building in La Jolla, CA. PMI was hired by the HOA to refresh the property’s prominent common areas implementing a more contemporary and coastal design theme. This included work to the main entrance, lobby, and residential corridors.

Throughout the design, budgeting, and project execution phases of the project Shannon exceeded all of our expectations. Her ability to create solutions for some of the more challenging aspects of the project was excellent. Her knowledge of finish materials, space planning, lighting, colors and landscaping was tremendously valuable throughout the project. Working with Shannon couldn’t have been easier. Her attention to detail and organized communication helped our HOA stay on schedule and on budget throughout the project.

As a general contractor, I have worked with many interior design firms over the years. Without a doubt, Payte Miller Interiors is at the top of the list. I would recommend them highly.

B. Steiniger, Positano Home Owners Association
I have known Shannon from Payte-Miller Interiors for over a decade now and you will not find a more creative, dependable, hard-working individual. Shannon designed a kitchen remodel and coordinated renovation efforts for a rental property that I own and I could not have been more satisfied with the results. She has also selected the paint and window treatments for my personal residence, again to my utmost satisfaction. She is always my go to person for any design needs.

I have used Shannon’s services while decorating my previous and current homes. Her dedication to make my vision become reality was amazing. My first experience was such a success when she helped me with a complete house makeover. Coordinating color palettes, helping me choose materials to use for surfaces and floors and devising a plan for furniture placement helped to make my previous home so beautiful. My second experience was equally positive. I needed to turn over the details to Shannon to complete while I was out of town caring for my mother. Her team got all the jobs done exactly as asked and in the time frame requested. When I came home I was able to take a deep breath and relax in my new sanctuary. Her precision planning made the work get done the first time, with no “do-overs” or “oops” moments. All pluses in my book! As I sit in my beautiful home and look around at the great job Shannon did for me I am grateful to have found her as my designer. I have referred her to friends with complete confidence. She embodies a true professional in every aspect of the word.

We have worked with Shannon on a few different occasions. Shannon helped us transform our sterile ‘white wall’ house into an inviting warm home. We were amazed how she was able choose colors that just brought each room to life. Our family room is our favorite room and her recommendations here really accented the stone in our fireplace and makes the room just all that more inviting.

Another project was a new rental investment that the existing tenants left a mess requiring a lot of work before we could show it to prospective new renters. Shannon understood ‘time is money’ and was involved in every aspect of the rehab. She coordinated bathroom remodels, rebuilding of closets, replacing light fixtures, choosing all the right colors for each room, etc. etc. This involved coordinating painters, plumbers, electricians and more. Before we knew it, we had multiple applicants wanting to make this place their home and at top market rent! Shannon will always be our resource when it comes to helping us with any project involving remodeling and decorating decisions. Her talent, skills, and resources are invaluable.
