With a background in clinical psychotherapy, interior design specialist Sharon Bottner is owner and founder of Panache Interior Design in Rye, New Hampshire. Servicing clients throughout the greater New Hampshire Seacoast and North Shore of Boston since 1988, Panache has grown and flourished with Sharon’s 4-step signature approach to design: the “Assert Your Style” process.
Sharon lends a unique level of support to her clients. As a psychotherapist and a licensed social worker, she is able to address and reduce the stress and overwhelming nature of renovating or building. Years of being a therapist equips her to coach and advocate for her clients. She prides herself on connecting with clients in an emotional, practical, and creative way to nurture and teach them how to assert their own style, not hers.
Sharon’s Assert Your Style process features a comprehensive analysis of the client’s project with attention to lifestyle and daily habits. She determines the requirements of the space before introducing solutions of color, fabrics, textures, etc. Sharon works toward a well-crafted goal with a masterful team skilled in upholstery, faux painting, custom cabinetry, and window décor. She has built relationships with vendors and merchants for preferred service in cabinetry, lighting, furniture, flooring, fabrics, and more. Sharon manages the process seamlessly, from start to finish, offering creative and functional design solutions.
Additionally, Sharon’s approachable personality makes the process enjoyable and the decision-making fun. She is naturally easy-going with a strong affinity for details, thereby making clients relaxed and confident.
Sharon enjoys cooking, gardening, a myriad of outdoor activities and sports, and dabbling in art, in her Rye, New Hampshire home.
