Interior designer Sheila Bridges, founder of Sheila Bridges Design Inc., is the featured Entrepreneur of the Week on the next edition of the Black Enterprise Business Report, hosted by Caroline V. Clarke. Bridges will show how to create an attractive home at an affordable price.

Named “America’s Best Interior Designer” by CNN and Time Magazine, Bridges founded her firm in 1993. She has designed residences and offices for many prominent entertainers, entrepreneurs and business professionals, including the 8,300 square foot Harlem offices for former President Bill Clinton and his staff. In 2007, Sheila’s passion for interiors inspired her to design furniture and home furnishings under the name Sheila Bridges Home, Inc. Her home furnishing collections have been sold to design conscious consumers online, through mail order catalogues and at such notable national retailers as Anthropologie and Bed, Bath & Beyond. Sheila’s Harlem Toile De Jouy wallpaper is currently available through design showrooms in The United States, Canada and Europe.

Along with running a successful interior design business, Bridges has hosted four seasons of Sheila Bridges Designer Living for the Fine Living Network. A regular contributor on NBC’s Today Show, she has appeared on Oprah and has been profiled in numerous national and international publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, O The Oprah Magazine, Ebony, Elle Décor, Interior Design, Vanity Fair, Essence and Black Enterprise.
