Jillian offered fresh new ideas for my farmhouse kitchen and family room area and was such a pleasure to work with. She and my cabinet builder worked together to guarantee a beautifully designed kitchen. In keeping an open line of communication she kept me informed every step of the way and listened carefully to any of my (in looking back, unnecessary) concerns. Although I was originally focused on oak cabinets, she asked if I was open to walnut. Wow, I had never given that a thought. She said they would be beautiful and she was right. Anyone you stops by my home I quickly give credit to Jillian. – Kathy, Ogden, Iowa


Jillian was the designer on my kitchen Makeover in 2015. We took everything down to the walls and started over. The end result was not only beautiful, it was functional. The best part about working with Jillian is that she presented options at every step. She offered two floor layouts with different price points, spent time with me going to different kitchen stores until I felt comfortable with the cabinet and countertop options. And spent time with me to design the placement of each cabinets so that the end result was functional. Every detail was thought through and options offered along the way, and there many – not only the cabinets and counters but the faucets, knobs and pulls, electrical, lighting options and paint colors. I Love cooking and entertaining in my new kitchen. And my 20 something son, who never really cooked before, finds recipes and we have Cooking with Mom Mondays. I wanted a kitchen update and Jillian gave me so much more. – Mary, Winterset, Iowa


I found Jillian online, and loved her blog. We needed a total renovation of our master bathroom, kid’s bathroom, and laundry/mud room. After the first visit to our house Jillian knew exactly what we wanted, even though we weren’t much help in giving her a lot of direction. Jillian’s design, tile, color, and fixture choices for all three rooms were amazing – and the renovated rooms are so beautiful I will never leave this house! Everyone who has come over since the renovations have been done have said how incredibly beautiful and functional the rooms are – and I think our new laundry/mud room is the envy of everyone I know. If you want to work with a designer who has awesome taste, totally understands what you want, and is comfortable with any budget, work with Jillian. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and if I ever need further renovations or even assistance with color or furniture placement, I will for sure want to work with Jillian again. – Lisa, West Des Moines, Iowa


I worked with Jillian in a variety of capacities in 2014. First as the designer for a major kitchen remodel, then as an interior designer/decorator for my LR and hearth room space. All of these projects involved a major rethinking in use of space and appropriate living pieces. I had never ordered “custom” upholstered furniture before, nor had I ever used a designer. My husband and I were making a down size change in our lives and I needed HELP. Jillian to the rescue! What I liked best….she listened to me and made sense of my “this and not that” to design a space that is classy and comfortable. I have very busy travel and work schedule. Jillian knew to give me limited choices (my request). She previewed furniture stores and websites. Picked fabric and rugs. I had never thought about couches being “sit in” vs sit on. To me it was just a couch. In one instance, she selected the fabric for a love seat that I never saw until it was delivered. It was perfect. I never felt inadequate in my questions or decisions. She made the entire experience better than I had hoped for. I love my kitchen and my updated living spaces. I will be calling Jillian again. – DeAnn, West Des Moines, Iowa


Jillian helped us with a plan for an update on our kitchen. She listened to us and made valuable suggestions even on her first visit. She did a concept board for us so we can spend some time doing one project at a time but follow the overall plan. She kept our budget in mind and was willing to do substitutions when we weren’t in love with some of the first suggestions. She even changed the plan when we just changed our mind about what we wanted. – Emil & Linda, Des Moines, Iowa


Jillian worked with me on an interior design for my open kitchen and family room. What sets Jillian apart is how she got to know me and my family in order to infuse our personality and lifestyle into the design and materials recommendation. The result is a beautifully designed space that is unique to our family. She also worked within my budget, providing suggestions and alternatives in all price ranges. I am so happy with the result and thoroughly enjoyed working with Jillian. – Jennifer, Johnston, Iowa
