Our Services

Interior Design


Are you looking for the services of an Interior Decorator to help you with a new home or a renovation of an existing home? We will gladly work with you from the ground up if need be. From coordinating space planning for your floor plans, to selecting paint colors and furniture, we have the experience and training to help you realize your design goals. We enjoy working with you to see it all come together!



Re-design is for you if you mostly want to use what you already have. Maybe you’re looking for a new furniture arrangement, a new paint color, or to add a few key pieces. We can help you with that; no job is too small! Together, we will create a plan to give your room a fresh look.



Ask any realtor, homes that are staged sell more quickly and for more money. Do you have a house that needs sprucing up, or perhaps you’ve moved away and are having difficulty selling a vacant home? We can come into an occupied home and give you an action plan for success using “buyer’s eyes.” If you need help executing that plan, we can also do that. In each room, we can freshen your accessories, rearrange furniture if needed, and give your house that decorator look!



We offer 1,000's of fabrics from Carole, Magnolia and GreenHouse Fabrics! Need a heavy, upholstery fabric or a lightweight, sheer fabric? Or maybe a particular pattern? We've got you covered! 

Come browse the collection at our full service Home Decor fabric store and order how much you need! We can check stock and it’s shipped within a week. Need help with your selection? Come in and have a free fabric consultation with one of our Saavy Designs team members!

Curtains, Blinds & Shades


We offer beautiful custom window treatments! We work with an excellent workroom that creates draperies, cornices, valances, and swags. We can also do custom bedding, throw pillows and tablecloths. If you can dream it, we can create it! There is nothing like the beauty and quality of custom curtains and linens.

In addition to soft window treatments, we also offer a line of blinds and shades. We carry wood and faux wood blinds, woven wood shades, fabric shades, roman shades, vertical blinds, metal blinds and a variety of other products. With Saavy Designs, you get free design consultation on the product as well as excellent customer service. From selection to installation, we’ve got you covered!

Rugs & Vendors


Do you have your furniture but just need that perfect rug to pull it all together? I have good news for you! We have beautiful hand woven, lush pile, wool rugs from Jaunty Company Inc to offer you!

Wool is the ‘go to’ fiber for top quality rugs. Known for its natural stain and crush resistance, wool is also naturally flame retardant. Jaunty rugs are hand tufted in India, edges are hand surged, patterns are hand colored in by an artist and can be 100% wool or a wool blend with other natural fibers. It’s truly a rug to last a lifetime!

Have you searched and searched for that perfect lamp, vase or accessory? Then look no further! We have a whole line-up of vendors with all sorts of products, so your missing gem just might be in there! Take a look through our list and contact us for pricing and ordering!

About Us

Hi there!

My name is Sharon Saavedra and I’m the lead decorator here at Saavy Designs. Growing up, I remember noticing my mother’s decoration of my room as a child and how pleasing her color choices were to me. I guess you could say that Interior Design has been a lifelong love of mine! At the University of Alabama, I studied hard and graduated in 1998 with a B.S. in Interior Design. I loved learning about antiques, space planning, finishes, and many other facets of design. After graduating, I worked for several years in design sales in many different venues: custom furniture, custom window treatments, and lighting. Since then, I have worked as a self-employed Interior Decorator and have participated in many diverse projects from residential to commercial design. In 2010, I added a certification in Staging and Redesign from Home Staging Resources to further be able to help my clients. I am also an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers or ASID. I would be happy to talk with you about your project!

On my right is Aspen Staeck, C.I.D., the newest member of our team. She got her start in theatre, helping her Mom, a hobby seamstress, with colors and styles for costumes. Her natural ability to put colors, styles and textures together was developed doing more costumes, stage sets and museum displays. Her official training was through Ashworth College's Interior Decorating Online Course, which prepared her to test for, and receive, her Certification in Interior Decorating from C.I.D. She also received, and completed, a 6 month internship right here at Saavy Designs before she went full-time. Her favorite Decorating style is a mix of Coastal and French Parisian, odd I know, but she makes it work! In her free time, you’ll find her Swing Dancing the night away with her friends at the Auburn Swing Dance Association. She has excellent taste and works hard to make your projects a beautiful reality!
