Stockton & Shirk Interior Design
Melinda Shirk, Principal
Stockton & Shirk Interior Design is a full-service Residential and Commercial design firm with 30 years of experience in Jackson, Wyoming. In 2005 Melinda Shirk joined longtime Jackson designer Pamela Stockton in the firm and a great partnership was born.
Melinda has a wide range of skills and experience, including facility management, space planning, interior fixtures, furniture finishes, custom millwork, lighting, and textile design. As a certified LEED-AP, she specializes in “green” design, and is passionate about sustainable fabrics and indoor air quality.
The Stockton & Shirk Showroom is also a furniture store, with gorgeous additions to complement any home.
What advice do you have for those interested in hiring an interior designer?
I would advise clients to keep an open mind. You always have choices and my goal is to give you fantastic choices and solve problems. Putting pieces together that complement each client’s lifestyle and individual personality is the best part of my job.
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories, and then working together to make their living space work for them.
What services do you specialize in and offer to clients?
Stockton & Shirk Interior Design is a full-service residential and commercial design firm. Whether it is a new build, a large-scale remodel, or a quick refresh, our team supports each client and their project every step of the way!
Where do you look to find inspiration?
Traveling! Living in a small town, I want to experience as much of the world as possible. I love to see the differences in style and how people live in different regions. There is always something new to learn and inspiration to find.
Why do you favor custom pieces from local craftspeople?
I like it when my clients can meet the people making things for their homes. It’s an experience they can share. It’s about supporting local businesses and being able to customize things. All the people who have touched a piece—from building the frame to upholstering it—live locally. That’s why we can’t compete with mass-market retailers, but I can stand behind the things that we sell.
What’s the story behind the design of the store?
The building’s charm spoke to Pamela Stockton and myself. Pamela gave me a mischievous smile when we saw the FOR RENT sign in the historic red building’s window seven years ago. She said, “That building has always looked to me like an interior design shop. We signed the lease that afternoon. We celebrated 33 years of business this past year.”
