Sally Elstad, Principal

Sally has been involved in design and construction for as long as she can remember, helping her Interior Designer mother and Civil Engineer father on several projects. Sally gained her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Texas, before starting her career in fashion and event production and cultivating her passion for buying, renovating and selling properties.

In 2001 Sally decided to turn this passion for buildings & design and her love of people into her career, forming Elstad Interiors. Initially focusing solely on properties in Chicago, referrals from her Clients have led to both residential and commercial projects in 12 states across the US, as well as projects in the UK. This has given Sally a wide range of influences, both contemporary and classical, from around the world.

Today, Sally and her team take tremendous pride in continuing to help their clients create unique and individualized spaces.
