Owner / Principal Designer
Shelly has always had a deep passion for all things creative, destined to become a designer. Taking a slight detour, Shelly graduated from St. Olaf College with degrees in Economics, Russian Studies, and an emphasis in Management. For seven years she worked as a project manager for a large consulting firm, gaining amazing opportunities to travel the world and exceptional management opportunities.
Although Shelly enjoyed and excelled in her past career, what she really longed for was a true passion for the kind of solution she created for her clients, and an opportunity to be more creative. Getting back on track, she attended the University of Minnesota for another four years and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Interior design and has never looked back! Truly motivated by creating unique and exceptional designs that are both functional and practical for her clients, Shelly works closely with her clients to ensure that in the end it is the “client’s design.”
Shelly’s free time is spent gardening, cooking, reading, camping, heading up north, and most of all she loves spending time with her three kids, husband and dog.
Carrie grew up in a small Wisconsin town that provided her with inspiration, space and time to spread her creative wings. When she wasn't helping her dad in the garden or her mom with the latest craft project, she was laying out floor plans in the yard, building elaborate forts & tree houses, rehabbing old furniture pieces and finding inspiration from everyday life.
Carrie attended the University of Minnesota and received her degree in Interior Design. In addition, she minored in Sustainability and earned her LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). These experiences have helped guide Carrie in her pursuit to bring the most to each Fluidesign client.
Carrie enjoys spending time with her husband and pups on their farm; planting anything & everything they can. Other than spending time in the garden, you can find them biking to the lake for a swim, reading a good book or swinging a tennis racket on the court.
