Our Story


Anna Shay, ASID and General Contractor David Wavro met on a struggling project that multiple owners and GC’s had abandoned. As they saved the project together, the pair soon realized their shared passion not only for creating high-end custom homes, but for incorporating the art of fine craftsmanship into their projects.

Together, they have embraced over 60 million dollars worth of takeover projects in the Orange County, Los Angeles and Tahoe markets and earned the reputation of “King and Queen of Takeovers” with homeowners who have an appreciation for exclusive designs, finely crafted furnishings, original art and elegant living environments.


Rare in the industry, Anna and David take full accountability for the success of each project. The “buck” stops with them. To ensure success, they value transparency, clear conversation and collaboration between all parties to create efficiency in both timelines and costs. Solanna’s direct relationships with manufacturers also ensures a value-driven project for budget conscience clients.

Whether an extensive remodel of an existing residence, or managing the process of building a new luxury home, Solanna’s full range of “concierge-style” services can help transform a simple living space into an inviting, extraordinary home.
