Designing Spaces for Life

About Shannon Perry Taylor

Barrel and Board Design has been a long time in the making! Shannon graduated from the University of Arkansas with a specialty degree in interior design.  After a working in several industries including commercial painting and wallcovering, she eventually went out on her own.  In 2001, Designs by Shannon was born as was her first child.  A couple of years later her family grew as did her business and Designs by Shannon became Design Details, a small residential design firm.  2013 brought additional life changes and opened doors for her long-time dream of owning a retail shop. This store became Barrel & Board. While the dream of store ownership hasn't fully died, the reality of running two full-time jobs and raising two teens at the same time proved to be too much.  Simplification became a necessity. After closing the store in 2016, Shannon opened Barrel & Board Design where she now does full-time design for discerning clients.
