Shaun Tyler BurgessOwner
Shaun isn’t necessarily what you’d expect from the owner of a custom window treatment shop, especially in a small suburban Boston town. Prior to opening Tyler & Sash, he spent three years abroad working for Ralph Lauren in Madrid, learning to push style to the forefront of every project. "We always take a design-centric approach to projects, and our strength is definitely with fabric. We always strive to affect people’s space in an impactful way."
Shaun lives in Newton with his wife, Pisey, and two kids, Miles & Elan. An avid fisherman, biker and travel lover, he makes the best use of his non-work hours to enjoy these activates with his family. In addition to being a great dad and heading Tyler & Sash, Shaun is a founding member of Kings of Kibira, a charity set up for street children in Africa. Since 2006 this non-profit has provided housing, education, and support for the community. To learn more or to make a donation visit Kings of Kibera.
"An interior designer must be able to clarify his intent keeping ever in mind that decorating is not a look, it’s a point of view" – Albert Hadley
Josh, much like Shaun, went to art school and worked for many years in fashion before transitioning to interior design. While at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts, he worked with small boutiques throughout Boston implementing window designs, store displays, and eventually managing and buying. His passion for the industry found him recruited by global luxury brand Burberry where he oversaw the runway collection for the North East. While there Josh found great joy taking on small design projects for friends and family and began to pursue a coveted position at the Boston Design Center. In his years at the BDC he was able to work with some of the industry’s top tier vendors and enjoy the many sourcing trips that found him in California, New York, Paris and London.
Outside of work Josh spends his time taking day trips for inspiration with his partner Abner to museums, specialty shops, and historic homes. To relax and refresh he spends time sketching and enjoying lots of snuggles with his two little dachshund ladies Snapp & Speck.

Taylor TrewJr Designer & Window Treatment Specialist
Taylor’s undergraduate degree at Emory University was followed up with a Post-Bacc at the School Museum of Fine Arts. Ever eager to learn, she recently began her journey towards a Masters in Interior Architecture at the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk.

Between school work and her two fur babies, Bear & Lady, she and her husband are expecting their first child. A fan of minimal design, one toast at her wedding included the call out "Taylor has taught Brian [her husband] that if you want to bring something into the home its scale and placement must be carefully and precisely considered."
"The details are not the details. They make the design." – Charles Eames
