Sherry Hayslip, ASID, IIDA, owner and principal designer of Hayslip Design Associates, Inc., along with her talented team, gives you the personal service you deserve and the attention to detail that every project, large or small, requires. Further, we know that every design project is a learning experience in which each one of us, veteran or beginner, is a continuing student of the art. And because every client is unique, every project is unique, and another opportunity to push the designing arts just a little further.
Over the past 30 plus years, Sherry Hayslip, ASID, IIDA, has established a reputation as one of the premier interior designers in Dallas/Fort Worth. As owner and principal designer of Hayslip Design Associates, Inc., Sherry is personally involved in every firm project.
Sherry received her bachelor's degree with honors and has done graduate work in Liberal Arts at SMU. She also attended Parsons School of Design in Italy, the National Institute of Design and the Cooper Hewitt graduate studies program in Italy, studying in Rome at the Cornell University abroad program and numerous other study trips. One of the secrets of her success is her passion for this continuing study in the decorative arts and architecture. She attended the Harvard University Graduate School of Design summer programs and participated in a Bard Graduate Studies in Decorative Arts Program. Along with architect Cole Smith, FAIA, Sherry co-founded the Dallas Symposium of Decorative Arts & Architecture. The Symposium was held for seven years in conjunction with the Dallas Museum of Art and brought scholars from Europe and the United States to lecture for each three-day event. In 2009, the 20th anniversary of the Symposium was celebrated with a one-day lecture featuring two of the original speakers.
Sherry's range of experience is a reflection of her insistence on researching the history of whatever style she is working in and discovering what draws the client to that aesthetic. She has worked on everything from a grand, 36,000 square-foot, 1750's plantation residence on the National Historic Registry, to a miniscule .05 square-foot tree trunk home for an imaginary bunny. She is a licensed Interior Designer in the state of Texas.
