“I have a female and African theme running throughout my home. I have African art and many of my paintings are of strong women. It reminds me of my heritage,” Shaun said. With a contemporary spin, Shaun’s fireplace is the perfect place for some of her favorite candles.

“I love these masks! I found them in a store in Beverly Hills. They were arranged so perfectly. So I had the sculptor come by and set them up for me. He was so nice about it,” Shaun said.

Shaun continues her African theme in the den with sculptures. “The tall one is a Budha that my decorator brought me as a gift. The lady sitting was a gift from my Uncle Johnny that he found in an African gift shop in Detroit, my hometown,” she said.

Shaun’s favorite room in the house: her closet. “It’s 300 square feet! This is what sold the house to me. There’s a TV in there, a chair and ottoman. My friends love to just hang out in my closet,” Shaun said.
