About Me


Hey there! I’m Shannon Towe and I love creating, designing and finding simple, cost effective ways to make spaces beautiful. Lets face it, we are all busy ~ I have 3 kiddos myself (7, 4, & 1) & I completely understand the challenges people are faced with when wanting to make their house a home for their family.  It can be overwhelming, confusing, and even frustrating!  You look at magazines, watch HGTV, or even walk into other homes and wish that your own spaces looked more like those ~ but you feel paralyzed when it comes to actually executing any type of plan.  Well I want to offer hope…it is possible!  And not as expensive as you may think! (Just may take a little more time 🙂

Honestly, as crazy as it may be, I feel like God has lead me to this point of actually starting a business.  I am not a business minded person at all (Thank goodness my hubbie is).  I’ve been struggling for years trying to figure out how my passion for decorating and designing and creating things fits into my everyday world and my purpose.  On one hand it can seem so trivial in light of eternal things, but one morning as I was journaling and praying through this again it was as if He said to me  “Shannon, go look out your window…I designed those trees and picked that shade of blue for the sky this morning…and those tiny pink flowers with the explosions of yellow and purple you planted yesterday…yeah, I put all that together!  Go look at your beautiful sleeping children or go look in the mirror!  I created you,  I designed your children!  I get it!  I understand your passion for beauty and color and texture…who do you think thought it all up to begin with?  You were created in MY image, so you’re simply reflecting Me!  And your desire and passion to make things pretty, well it is my gift to you for you to enjoy and to use to bless others with, so go create, go decorate, go do what you love to do and let me bless it!  Take a step in faith and let Me do the rest! ”

“A cord of three strands is not easily broken”

When thinking and praying through a name for my myself, I stumbled across this passage, “A cord of three strands is not easily broken” – (Ecclesiastes 4:12). which I have read on several occasions but this time it struck me in a new way … These are some of the things I feel like this passage (Ecc. 4:9-12) says to me:

  • I want God to be the center of all I do and everything I do to be a reflection of Him. If He is in this, He is ultimately holding it together~ I’m not alone ~ I can trust His strength. Essentially God is always the first and strongest “strand”.
  • I view design as us D.I.T (do it together) as much as D.I.Y.  I love working with people to create what they want and what ultimately reflects their taste!   I believe good design is not an individual thing, but is always better when more than one person is involved in the process!  “Two are better than one, for they have a great return for their work.” (Ecc 4:9).  It’s also more fun!!
  • “Strands” (so to speak) are central to any design.  Beautiful spaces consist of at least 3 layers of strands…layers of color, texture, & fabric… It takes several “strands” of beautiful elements to complete any beautiful design.

So that sweet morning spent with my very sweet God and my perfectly sweetened mocha colored coffee along with much encouragement and support from my amazing husband ultimately resulted in me beginning this fun journey with THREE STRANDS.  My desire is to pay it forward as much as possible and give away what God has given me. I want to leverage my talents, experiences and passions to bring Him glory and help others reflect themselves in the designs we create together!
