Feature-Forward Designs With Shelly Preziosi


Shelly Preziosi tunes into her clients’ lives with extreme precision and care to make their dreams realities and give them kitchens that meet every need.

From Teacups to Two-Story Homes

Preziosi has always had a fascination with balance and beauty in her design ideas. From a young age, she worked to create a homey feel, even if that meant turning a tree in a game of house into a mansion adorned with leaves, flowers and grass.

“We’d play house under a tree. I’d get little leaves and make little teacups, and we’d hang things on the branches.”


As the years progressed and she fine-tuned her talents, Preziosi discovered she had the ability to handle an entire space over just working on a kitchen or bathroom. She loves creating the heart of the home and emphasizes the importance of a home in a person’s life.


“Our homes are our foundations for our well-being. When you have a home that supports what you’re doing in life, you’re more successful.”


Respect and Homage

Describing her design style as fluid, Preziosi brings her experience working on historical restorations in Philadelphia with her. She notes that design should be about respecting form and function, as well as understanding how to blend styles.

“Modern is a lifestyle, and classic is respecting history, art, form, and function.”



Tailored Trends

Never one to shy away from a tricky design, she uses questions about the client’s lifestyle and cooking preferences to create the perfect space.

“The harder it is, the more of a challenge it is and the more excited I am to do it.”

Preziosi tries to marry the appliance suite to the person and their preferences. For at-home chefs and kitchen connoisseurs, she prefers to incorporate Sub-Zero and Wolf Pro Series appliances, as they are big, bold and adventurous to match the client. Finally, for clients with European preferences, she suggests Thermador or Gaggenau.

Quick, Confident Service

Preziosi chooses Monark for the excellent customer service. She knows she can count on Monark to deliver outstanding results.


“Customer service. That’s why I come to Monark. I know as a designer that if my client has a problem it will be addressed in a timely manner and my customer will be satisfied.”


We’re so pleased Shelly chooses Monark to furnish her projects, and we look forward to continuing to provide fastidious service for her and her clients.
