Welcome to Shining on Design!

Samantha Regan-Chicago

I’m Samantha and I first want to say thank you for visiting my blog! I hope to inspire you through creative lifestyle posts and home decor ideas.

I love sharing the latest interior design trends, favorite resources for shopping and some tidbits of my life and home.

A little about me…..

I was born and raised in Chicago, studied at the University of Iowa and Interior Design at Harrington College of Design. I now live in this darling town outside of Chicago with my husband, precious daughters (ages 3 and 1) and two little pups.

My background is in commercial and luxury residential real estate but my passion has always been in design. After my first daughter was born, I decided to focus on being a mom and pursue a more creative path.

Some of my favorite and top blog posts:

As my blog and portfolio are evolving, I hope you follow along and support me in this journey. I look forward to connecting with you!
