After graduating with Honors from the Art Institute of Atlanta, Jennifer went to work for an architecture firm in Atlanta. There she gained a strong foundation in construction and design. She worked on projects for Starbucks, Hertz, Walgreens, and many other retail and hospitality client. This job gave her a working knowledge of space planning, design details, and project management. From there, Jennifer joined an Interior Design firm in Midtown Atlanta. She helped manage 12 different multi-family projects (apartment complexes). She refined her skills in finish and furniture selection by designing and installing the apartment models. Soon after, Jennifer took the bold step to begin working for herself as an Interior Designer. She now manages her own clients working on both residential and commercial projects.
Describe your go-to style:
My go-to style is always transitional. It mixes the perfect blend of elements and can be easily tapered to anyone's design taste! Like it a little Coastal? Throw in some light blues! More Industrial? Add in some reclaimed wood and vintage elements. Paired with furniture that has clean lines and walls that have soft neutral colors, transitional style hits on everyone's design taste!
What drives you to design?
It's all about making something new again - breathing new life into a space. I'm a firm believer that our environments affect our physical and mental health. Transforming a space from a haphazard mix of furniture and decor to a relaxing, serene, and functional environment is what its all about for me. When clients come to me with a project - whether they have no idea where to start or just need some affirmation about their selections - I love the chance to take something stale and make it new again.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw most of my inspiration from my clients. I start with the project, the client's needs, and the client's wishlist. I find most client's have an idea or a design style or an inspiration image that speaks to them. My goal is to find the essence of that idea/style/inspiration and accomplish it in my client's project. It's not about the furniture you pick or the paint selection. It's about the feeling you get in the room. Is it warm, inviting, cozy? Can you find rest and sweet enchantment there? That's what I want to give my clients - the enchanting feeling of a well-designed space.
