I Am Talie Jane
Talie is “Natalie” without the “Na” and Jane is my middle name. I started Talie Jane Interiors in 2009 and have since worked to create comfortable, luxurious and sophisticated environments for my clients.
Beginning in Chicago and moving to Lake Tahoe, our firm understands various design styles and mixes and matches according to the tastes and preferences of our clients.
We have several simple beliefs, which affect everything we do. We believe in listening to and understanding our clients. We believe in an analytical AND creative approach to design challenges. We believe that each space should tell a story in an artistic and beautiful way. We believe in delivering on time and under budget. We believe in long-lasting client relationships.
Our office is located in Lake Tahoe and we serve clients all around the lake (including the surrounding areas of Reno, Carson City, Truckee and beyond).
We look forward to working with you.
All the best,
“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful –
that will be my life.”

OWNER AND DESIGNER, TALIE JANE
Lots of people go to school for 10 years…they’re called doctors, or in the case of Talie Jane, interior designers.
After earning a master’s degree in advertising and working in account management at small, medium and internationally renowned advertising agencies in Boston, New York and Chicago, Talie decided the ad world wasn’t for her. Instead, her life-long passion for interior design prevailed.
Four years later, she earned another undergraduate degree, in interior design, and shortly thereafter, opened Talie Jane Interiors in Chicago, her hometown. The resulting combination of management (details) and creativity (design) is unmatched and is thoroughly demonstrated in each of her design projects.
With a successful business, it was difficult for Talie to uproot to Lake Tahoe. But, she “followed a boy,” as she jokes, and made the cross-country move. “It was my husband who introduced me to Lake Tahoe and to whom I can thank for allowing me to wake up in the beauty and tranquility of this amazing place,” she says. Now, Talie gets to follow her passion every day, in one of the most majestic places on earth.
Talie lives in Lake Tahoe with her husband, son and two dogs.
BUSINESS MANAGER, RYAN PAUL
A mechanical engineer, designer, realtor and gourmet chef, Ryan is truly a renaissance man. But his true talents lie in customer service, collaboration, business management, logistics and relationship-building.
Ryan’s 17+ years in sales and project management has provided him the necessary tools for thoughtful problem-solving and communication. He is responsible for the fantastic deals we have procured with our vendors and the reason we can pass along unbeatable product savings to our clients.
He also happens to be Mr. Talie Jane which makes him truly accountable to the “boss” in every sense of the word.
We are honored to have Ryan with us as a valued team member of Talie Jane Interiors.
ASSOCIATE DESIGNER, KARLY MICHELLE
Karly knew she had a passion for design at a very early age. And after testing the waters in a variety of design fields - landscape and architectural design – she followed her passion to the world of interior design.
Karly joins us as an assistant designer and AutoCAD aficionado. She loves drafting floor plans and excels in maximizing spatial layouts.
A graduate of California State University, Chico, Karly holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior and Architecture and has more than five years design experience ranging from large luxury furnishing companies like Restoration Hardware to landscape design, small architectural offices and boutique and midsize interior design firms.
Karly came to Tahoe from the Bay area where she last worked on projects ranging from bathroom remodels to home renovations and new construction. Lucy for us, a client project took her to Tahoe where she felt right at home and made the move shortly thereafter.
“We are lucky to have found Karly” says Talie Jane. “She came highly recommended by one of our contractors/builders and has proven her ability to understand the mountain modern design aesthetic so prevalent in the Tahoe area.”
“I am grateful to have found Talie Jane Interiors”, Karly beams. “I am able to continue honing my skills with the help of amazing mentors.”
ASSISTANT DESIGNER, AKSHAYA SIVASANKAR
Architect turned Interior Designer, Akshaya knew from an early age that she wanted to work in a creative field. She completed her undergraduate work in India, earning a bachelor’s degree in Architecture. It was at that point that she realized she was even more passionate about Interior Design! So, she came to the US to earn a master of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Iowa State University.
Akshaya stayed on after graduate school and was working as an Architectural Assistant when she found Talie Jane Interiors. “My ideal place is one with mountains and water,” she says. “So, when I found Talie Jane Interiors in Lake Tahoe, I was thrilled to make the move; I am so lucky to have a job I’m passionate about and to have a forever home in Tahoe.”
We are very excited to have Akshaya join our team. She is extremely eager to learn and gives every task her all.
