I have relied on Sharon’s expertise, insight and vision for multiple projects (kitchen, home office and bathroom) in our home.

She has great taste and, at the same time, lets me pick out what I like and then works with me to pull it together, with all the coordinating pieces. Sharon values my time and makes good use of it; key to this is understanding my taste and giving me choices without being overwhelmed. She is expert in what she does, navigating the worlds of suppliers, the trades and more – so I don’t have to. Bottom line: we end up with projects we love (people REALLY envy our home office these days) and the process is efficient, stress-free and in fact, enjoyable.

How does one arrive at kitchen nirvana?

A place that makes you smile, a place that invites gathering and togetherness…how does one arrive home? With outstanding design and honed craftsmanship, Sharon Sherman of Thyme & Place Design and Randall Veenstra of Veenstra & Sons Building helped me create my very own blissful space. Sharon is a consummate professional, on top of every detail and delivery, always reachable, always quick with ideas and problem solving skills. A lot of details in this kitchen remodel were effortlessly designed and customized by this incredible team of professionals. Thank you!

Sharon and the crew did a fantastic work, converting an outdoor patio to serene, sophisticated powder room.

Despite the challenges presented by COVID, she always kept close communication using best safety practices during our project. In our opinion, she is a true professional!! We love the powder room!! 


Sharon and her team did an outstanding job on remodeling our basement.

She handled all the details personally with passion and enthusiasm. We have received so many compliments on our basement and have enjoyed many family and friend gatherings. I can not recommend her services enough as she brought our
vision to life. Thanks so much for all that you do!


I was really lucky to have Sharon help me with my project.

I was totally lost and she knew exactly what to do. She went way above and beyond what was expected and out of her way to help me. She is very knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, and reliable. I can’t say enough good things about her.
Thank you Sharon!

Working with Sharon is a true professional.

I have worked with Sharon on multiple projects ranging from living rooms, parlor areas, foyers and bathrooms and each unique to the clients need, meeting them where they are and helping elevate their house to be a home they will love for years to come. Sharon is a master of mixing and matching fabrics and textures so the space is both high design and at the same time, livable and durable. Sharon goes the extra mile to complete the projects with art and accessories. I highly recommend Sharon Sherman!

Sharon is amazing!

Easy to work with and will give you exactly what you are looking for and more! She designed my master and guest bath. She is like a walking encyclopedia when it comes to design and how to get things done.

Their is no one better than Sharon Sherman!

She has designed our basement, multiple bathrooms, our entry foyer, dining room, family room, guest bedroom and so much more to come. I would trust her to come into my home and design it without even asking what we think. She is so much fun to work with and I look forward to continuing for a long time to come.

My husband and I are very happy with our new kitchen, powder room, and other areas of the house that Sharon designed.

It has been over a year since our kitchen and powder room were completed by Sharon and her great team. My husband and I are very happy with our new kitchen, powder room, and other areas of the house that Sharon designed. The kitchen is modern and beautiful , and very easy to work in. Our wants and needs were taken into consideration with the design. Sharon came up with many creative ideas to meet our wants and needs. She guided us to make certain decisions and gave us free rein in making many decisions on our own.
The complete redesign was a true collaboration and a reflection of my husband and my style.

Sharon designed our gorgeous new kitchen and we couldn’t be happier with the result!

Before the renovations we had an awkwardly laid out space with a cooktop that took up an entire island and left no workspace, and the only place to eat was a tiny counter with 2 stools. To top it off it had the world’s tiniest oven and probably less storage space than we had in our small NYC apartment.

We dreamed of a true eat-in kitchen for our soon to be family of 4, but every designer we met with before Sharon told us it either wasn’t possible or we would have to sacrifice a pantry. In stepped the remarkably talented Sharon who created space for a 6-seater banquette and turned the existing powder room in our kitchen into a walk-in pantry (and made the closet in our foyer into a beautiful new powder room and built a new coat closet in the foyer).

She helped us pick out a unique glass tile backsplash feature and guided us through appliance selections and all the details down to a custom bulletin board. Our kitchen is so functional (we love our pull out drawer for dishes that lets our 3 year old help unload the dishwasher and set the table!) and it is truly our favorite place in our new house. After the kids are in bed I often come down to the kitchen to sit for a minute of quiet and I still think “wow” when I look around.


Best of Everything

Sharon Sherman of Thyme & Place Design delivers the wow factor in so many ways, it’s hard to know where to begin. After dreaming of a kitchen renovation for five years – and generating some pretty high expectations – we contracted Sharon to handle the project and were consistently impressed as she and her crew handled all aspects of the design, planning, and construction.

Sharon didn’t just design us a beautiful kitchen (and it is!), she reimagined our space to make it work immeasurably better for us. A brilliant space planner, Sharon came up with all kinds of clever ideas for the new kitchen and effective solutions to problems we’d dealt with in the old one. And though it goes without saying, she has superb taste and is a consummate design pro. So with a Thyme & Place kitchen you get gorgeous form as well as ingenious function.

Of course, it would all be for nought without great execution – and the Thyme & Place team excels there too. Sharon’s crew was outstanding. The high level of planning detail and prompt communication kept us always feeling that we knew what would be happening and when. We quickly came to completely trust all involved, and were always impressed by the crew’s professionalism and courtesy, as well as their respect for our home and our community’s work rules. We also benefited from Sharon’s relationships with suppliers, getting competitive prices on very high quality materials, and have enjoyed an excellent experience working with Thyme & Place’s helpful and responsive interior design associate, Chelsea Novakoski.

So you could hire a designer and a contractor and a plumber and an electrician and a decorator and find vendors for cabinetry and countertops and flooring and tile and everything else… (the list goes on and on) …but why would you? You can just hire Sharon and get the absolute best of everything with a single point of contact. That’s what we did and we couldn’t be happier.

Finally found a truly exceptional, talented professional

Initially met Thyme & Place Design Principal, Sharon Sherman at a Designer Showcase Home, where we were impressed with her work on a guest bathroom. We immediately hired Thyme & Place Design to handle the design of our Master Bathroom, which we planned to gut renovate.
Ms. Sherman’s laid out so many magnificent design ideas that we expanded the scope of her company’s assignment to include the full gut renovation of 2 full baths & 1 half bath, in addition to the full gut renovation of our kitchen. Needless to say, Ms. Sherman has transformed our 1975 ranch into our own ‘Architectural Digest Designer Showcase Home’.

After renovating four previous residences, we have finally found a truly exceptional, talented professional!!

Thrilled with the design

Sharon and her team did a great job on our kitchen renovation. Sharon was a good listener, with her design responsive to our wish list, while at the same time guiding us with her experience. Ours was a complete renovation down to the studs, including removal of existing walls to create an open concept. We were thrilled with the design and the finished product. We recommend her and her team without reservation.


Drastically Reduced Our Anxiety

Thank you so much for helping us put our kitchen together. We felt so much more comfortable working with someone we trust. It was fun to get a glimpse into your world and business outside of swimming. Working with you also drastically reduced our anxiety in this area since we have so little experience in it. We really appreciate everything you did for us.

Emily & Kyle

Absolutely fabulous job

Sharon and the team at Thyme & Place design did an absolutely fabulous job helping us design and execute a full renovation of our master bath. Sharon was excellent at helping us with every step of the process, from layout and design to picking out the perfect tile, tub, vanity, etc. She introduced us to an unbelievable contractor and then worked seemlessly with him to make sure everything was on time and on budget. We can wait to have another project to work on with Sharon and her team.

Couldn’t be happier with the final product

Going into this project we were overwhelmed with all of the options and possibilities available when designing a kitchen. Sharon worked with us every step of the way to realize the kitchen we’ve always wanted and made the whole process enjoyable. Her expertise and eye for design are invaluable. We couldn’t be happier with the final product and can’t wait to work with her on our next renovation.

Came out better than we had hoped

My wife and I wanted to completely make over our family room as it is where we spend the most time. After having several discussions with Sharon, she came up with a great design that totally matched what was in my head. Like in any project, some aspects of the design were difficult to visualize and we would default to Sharon’s suggestion. She really nailed it – the room came out even better than we had hoped and friends and family have all been effusive in their praise. We will definitely consult Sharon before we do anything else in our house.

Family Room

Very Happy

We hired Sharon and Randy to update 2 bathrooms, entry way and our basement. Project turned out great and finished on time. Both communicated throughout the project, and post-project, and we’re very happy with how it turned out.

Creative planning and space design

It has been a pleasure to work with Sharon Sherman of Thyme and Place Designs. After our first kitchen remodel we called upon her expertise again after moving to our present home which involved a bathroom remodel, as well as major construction changes. Twice, we have benefited by her creative planning and space design. She listened to our needs and executed a design plan which we thoroughly enjoy everyday. The project came in on time and budget. She is easily reachable, her office staff is knowledgeable, courteous and pleasant.

I do not intend another move but there is no one other than Thyme and Place Design I would call upon again if that were the case.

I recommend her highly

Sharon did all 4 of my bathrooms and kitchen. She worked very well with my architect and builder to make sure I had a spectacular outcome. Which is exactly what happened. People love my kitchen and baths. They are timeless. They are also original enough that they seem totally new. I am often asked to put my house on tours to show off what Sharon has done. In fact, Sharon won an award for my kitchen from Viking Appliances. Sharon has been in this business for well over 20 years. I recommend her HIGHLY!

The consummate professional

It has always been a pleasure working with Sharon. She is the consummate professional who pays attention to the client’s needs and preferences while providing valuable creative input. We worked together on both a kitchen (which I still love after 12 years) and the ultimate “Big Boy Playroom” which has been the best investment of our lives. Hope to work with her again when I “sell” the master bedroom renovation to the “Boss”.

Elegance, function, and technology

We utilized Thyme & Place Design to design a Master Bedroom inclusive of a Master Bath and “Mom Cave”, to design a secondary full bath, to design and furnish a home office, and to design and furnish a family room. Sharon and team were always ready, willing, and able to meet and exceed our expectations. She listened to our desires and interests to produce completed projects that incorporated elegance, function, and technology with an appreciation for the environment. Before you go see an architect, I recommend that you arrange to meet with Sharon first.

Truly exceeded our expectations

We have used Thyme and Place Design for two full bathroom renovations and couldn’t be more pleased. Sharon is a true professional. She guided us through the process, worked with us to come up with designs that met our needs, and her staff was exceptional. All of the contractors were extremely courteous, reliable, and always left the space as neat as possible. Both of our projects were completed ahead of schedule and truly exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Thyme and Place Design!

A true joy to work with

We loved working with Sharon. She has wonderful taste and phenomenal way of guiding us to make the right decision. She is cognizant of who her customers are on every level. She is a true joy to work with and we look forward to continuing working with her on all our future projects.


Exactly what we wanted

Thank you for your help with our recent renovation project. The woodwork from Lazarus & Williamson and the stone from Michael at Stone Surfaces provided us with exactly what we wanted for the space. Without you, the project would not have been as much fun.


Staff is superior

Everything was perfect. Everyone who has seen the house comments on the great job. Your staff is superior, very customer-oriented. Can’t thank you enough for a job well done.
