Jessica Ivie, Interior Designer
Jessica has been designing spaces since the days of play forts in the backyard! Luckily, the spaces she dreams up for her clients now are much more luxurious than forts. A native of Sonoma County, she is excited to bring great design to this beautiful area. After taking interior design classes at Santa Rosa Junior College, she moved to San Francisco. While going to San Francisco State University for her Bachelors in Interior Design, she had a chance to work for a number of reputable designers, as well as custom furniture showrooms and real estate staging.
Since graduating in 2014 and moving back to Sonoma County, she is eager to create contemporary, classic homes—a place that feels fresh, yet ages gracefully through the years.

We understand that you have many choices when it comes to the products and accessories you select for your home. What sets us apart from most retail stores, including the Internet marketplace, is the personalized attention we give to each and every one of our customers. When you enter our store, we are truly happy to see you and willing to spend whatever time it takes to learn about you, your style and how you live. Only then are we able to give you our expert advice on which products are the best fit for you.
Our mission is to educate our customers so you are better equipped to make informed decisions when it comes to designing your home. Our homes are a major investment, and you deserve to make the most of it. Whether you are remodeling your home or simply adding new furniture and accessories, we want you to understand the value of your purchases. This understanding requires an expert to explain how and where various products are made, and why certain products have a longer “shelf-life” than others. Only then can you make the purchases that are best for you.
We understand that purchases for your home can be intimidating and that often items that appear one way in the showroom look completely different in your home. This is why, whenever possible, we allow you to take samples or even a piece home in order to make certain it will work for you. We sincerely do not want to sell you something that you are not going to be happy with for years to come.
