In June 2018, Shaynna starred in Buying Blind, Nine’s high-stakes property thriller, during which six couples handed over their own money and their housing dreams to three experts: a real estate agent, a builder and a designer, to find, purchase and renovate a property into their dream home.
As well as sharing her design advice on-screen, Shaynna also lends her expertise to the design of countless beautiful products for the home. In 2013, she was commissioned by leading Australian furniture maker, Molmic, to design a new range. Launched in 2014, the eight-piece collection draws its inspiration from a time of elegance and grace, with a charming colour palette of snow whites, stone neutrals and calming blues.

In December 2015, Shaynna lit up our screens with her two-part special, Shaynna’s World of Design. The show documented Shaynna’s design journey as she worked towards creating an exclusive signature range of interior lighting. Shaynna also designed a lighting range for another major Australian wholesaler, OneWorld Collection, which was released in time for Christmas in 2015. That same year, Shaynna launched her hugely successful collaboration of art work with the Australian retailer, Urban Road. Then, in 2017 she released her beautifully versatile new range of homewares, exclusively for Harris Scarfe.
