Enhancing Your Life with Design

Meet Tanya and Sesshu Design Associates

Integrity and Provenance Define a Sesshu WELL Designed™ Home

Provenance represents from whence a product originates; it’s often as intellectual as it is geographic. A WELL Designed™ home reflects each client’s values, provenance and integrity. It’s the philosophy behind everything that Tanya Shively creates. A WELL Designed™ home reinforces your well-being, comfort, lifestyle and ensures you love you home.

Sesshu Design Associates is retained by families who demand each detail is managed by a connoisseur of culture and home. Quality, eco-consciousness, comfort, and sophisticated classic design are a given; each home properly reflects the breadth of each client’s life. Tanya Shively does so intuitively. The end result is a comfortable, classically designed home that stands the test of time; a WELL Designed™ home is integrity.

Your dreams combined with our insight transforms your house into the retreat you deserve.

Paradise Valley Transitional Elegance

Fitting a more traditional style into a new and slightly modern condo development called for creative mixing of old and new pieces. The fresh color palette combined warm beige and gold with grey and ivory neutrals. Splashes of red and celadon green add interest and depth.
Desert Mountain Modern

An inviting desert contemporary home with simple, honest materials was updated with new furnishings that have a great design aesthetic and are also imminently comfortable. Warm copper mixes wonderfully with grey, ivory and green to keep the natural feeling dictated by the incredible views.
Paradise Valley Kitchen

A light and bright kitchen that feels fresh and updated was our mandate. The predominant design feature became the bold blue of the La Cornue range that the husband fell in love with. Mixing satin brass and stainless steel finishes creates a warm and timeless feeling of sophistication.
Mountain Shadows Desert Transitional

This renovation of a home in the Mountain Shadows East community of Paradise Valley, Arizona is light and bright with a more contemporary style. The owners kept some of their more traditional furnishings, which add an eclectic mix that personalizes the home. Natural materials, neutral colors, and lots of texture give this home a welcoming and comfortable feeling.
Serene Scottsdale Condo Remodel

A dated condo was taken from boring, beige and white with a very 80’s finish palette and opened up, with fresh colors, sustainable materials and a comfortable, modern style. This was a complete renovation to kitchen, master bath, guest baths and we procured all new furnishings throughout.
Modern Showhouse

Whether it’s a dramatic Pop Art print, mixed media on canvas, or a framed photograph, art in a home reveals much about its inhabitants and their style. We worked hand in hand with local galleries to select pieces for four spaces in the Paradise Valley Designer Showhouse.
