Designer Spotlight: Southern Glam Originator Shayla Copas
Arkansas Governor’s inaugural ball designer and Southern Glam originator Shayla Copas shares insights on using shocking color combinations.
Shayla Copas, the owner of Shayla Copas Interiors, has loved interior design her entire life. Since opening her own design firm in 1997, she has become one of the South’s most well-known luxury designers.
Shayla Copas is an interior designer you want to get to know—whether you recognize her work from the covers of design publications, High Point Market, The Design Network or, perhaps, the Arkansas governor’s mansion (in 2015, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson appointed Shayla to the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion Commission.) Using color and luxurious patterns in her signature ‘Southern Glam’ style, Shayla does ‘southern’ like no one else. Take a look at her new book, Four Seasons of Entertaining, for beautifully inspiring insights on seasonal decor.
