At byblye we seek to create beautiful residential and commercial interiors that tell inspiring stories. We believe that the spaces in which you live, work, and play should be a reflection of your collected histories and passions, and be a welcoming place to share the things that bring you the greatest joy.
Blye Faust - Principal Designer
With a career in entertainment under her belt (as both a film and television producer and an attorney), travels far and wide across the globe (skipped Antarctica but covered every other continent), and having lived throughout the jaw-droppingly beautiful state of California (Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and now the San Francisco Bay Area), Blye brings a vast collection of experiences to her role as a designer. Nothing makes her more excited than combining old and new, high and low, and any other dichotomous pairing you can dream up into a cohesive narrative that achieves a distinctive vision. Blye holds a BA from Santa Clara University and a JD from UCLA. She lives in Marin County with her husband and two sons.
In The News
Blye's current film project, "Spotlight," starring Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams, was recently awarded Best Picture at the 2016 Academy Awards. The highly acclaimed film is currently in theaters and on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
Ana Plascencia - Senior Designer
An interior designer with six years of experience in the industry, Ana Plascencia brings a fresh perspective to each project she approaches. Her intuitive nature and keen eye for scale and proportion allow her to visualize what her clients want and translate that vision into reality, creating spaces that are inspired and inviting. A Santa Barbara native, Ana moved to San Francisco to earn a degree in Interior Design from FIDM San Francisco, and after graduating spent four years consulting with numerous distinguished San Francisco Bay Area designers to help manage and grow their businesses.
Sharie Michalec-Howard - Associate Designer
After a career in fine art handling for museums and art galleries, Sharie Michalec-Howard moved from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue her passion for interior design. Sharie developed her skills taking photography courses and earning a degree in Interior Design & Architecture from FIDM San Francisco. With a trained eye for composition and texture, she crafts layered spaces that are akin to beautiful photographs but for everyday living. When Sharie isn’t designing, she can be found traveling or drawing inspiration from Old World architecture.
