My approach to interior design is collaborative and client-centric. The goal is always to identify your style and elevate it, not impose my own.
You can have a gorgeous home like you see in the magazines without compromising your individuality and the reality that is life. A home should be classic and timeless, livable and luxurious, soulful and one-of-a-kind.
It can be a masterpiece without becoming a museum piece. You have kids, pets, parents, and guests. You have accumulated a lifetime’s worth of treasures from travels and family members. The design of your home should highlight and celebrate these things.
A Little More About Me
I established JWD, Inc. over 10 years ago after working in the fashion industry with luxury brands Neiman Marcus, Giorgio Armani, and The J. Peterman Company. I appreciate high fashion and high end but never at the expense of timelessness and durability.
My business background (MBA) places an importance on the concept of Value and makes me a careful steward of my clients’ time and money.
Like you, I find designer fee structures confusing and shady. For this reason, I am completely transparent in my pricing and invoicing leaving nothing open for question. Additionally, in hopes of elevating best practices in my industry, I founded the Interior Design Peer Alliance (IDPA) in 2010.
I care deeply about the people I work for and with. I choose to work with a small group of clients, taking only a few select projects annually, so I can focus on them fully.
Finally, in addition to finding joy in helping clients create beautiful homes, I am passionate about rescuing animals. I currently have 4 dogs, 2 of my own and 2 fosters- a senior hospice, named Sunshine and a puppy, named Franklin.
If this sounds intriguing, I would love to hear from you.
