Foundation in Finishes is a design philosophy which dictates that a solid base of color, texture and finish is THE KEY differentiating element to a successful interior design project.  Residential or commercial the surface finishes are often misunderstood or overlooked.


Born in San Francisco then moved to London at an early age, Shirley spent many hours at the fabulous homes and museums of England.  After a number of years walking runways as a top fashion model in Italy she returned to the US and attended the New York School of Design for a more formalized education.  Returning home to San Francisco in the 90's Shirley formed Robinson Decorative   Finishes where she leveraged her innate sense of color and texture. Now part of Shirley Robinson Interiors,  Shirley and her team have designed commercial and residential projects throughout the US and Europe.
