Simon Little grew up in Port Townsend. He developed a passion for design while working for his family’s construction business, Little & Little Construction. An interest in the bigger picture of construction led Simon to study architecture. After achieving a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies in 2003 from Judson University, located near Chicago, he began mentoring under a licensed architect. While practicing architecture full time he returned to school to acquire a Master of Architecture degree in 2007.
Shelly Little has turned a passion for interior design into a career focused on Kitchen and Bathroom design. Originally from Pennsylvania, she completed her Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies in 2003 from Judson University, where she met Simon. Shelly worked for several high end Kitchen and Bath design firms in Chicago. Her creative approach to design and attention to detail caught the attention of clients and earned respect from design firms.
Simon and Shelly moved to Port Townsend in 2007 to reconnect with the beautiful place Simon grew up. Shortly after arriving, they founded studioSTL as an independent design studio. For six years Shelly was also a Lead Designer at Kitchen & Bath Studio in Port Townsend. In late 2013, Shelly took a full time role with the studio.
