Interior Designer, Stylist, Event Designer
Jennifer Vreeland McDermott, owner of JV Design LLC, has put her degree in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology to diverse use. She traveled widely for 15 years as Special Projects Director for Country Living magazine to produce and style lifestyle and decorating stories, in addition to designing dozens of kitchens, bathrooms and other interior spaces for the magazine. The next six years, she became editor in chief of New Jersey Life, and later, editor in chief of Health & Life magazine, which she redesigned and rebranded, and spun off publications for each.
A professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and Interior Design Society (IDS), Jennifer also uses her design acumen in television appearances. Extremely media savvy, she has served as production designer for HGTV’s “Property Brothers” and as guest host on QVC. She appeared in two seasons of Style Network’s show, “Jerseylicious”; one episode was filmed at Jennifer’s own home.
Known for her use of color and mix of patterns, finishes and textures, Jennifer has a knack for building inviting family-friendly spaces that reflect her clients’ personal styles. Interiors are harmonious and functional, fusing style with comfort. Her design work has been published in such magazines as Country Living, This Old House Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Woman’s Day, Design NJ, Westchester Health & Life, and Orange Magazine, among others.
Jennifer calls herself a “serial entrepreneur.” Besides her other endeavors, in 2014 she joined Faith Ferguson Productions, where her creativity extends from designing homes to events (weddings, Sweet 16 parties, and more), transforming simple spaces into memorable stage sets.
Her intuitive talent and big-picture vision doesn’t ignore reality. Projects are completed on time and on budget. “I listen to what my clients want and then, after thorough research and running the numbers, I tell them exactly what it’s going to cost.” Clients appreciate Jennifer’s innate style, practicality and hands-on expertise. Her ability to work in tandem with other trades, as well as forming her own team of specialists, creates the most cohesive outcome for every project.
“I LOVE all things design! With a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude and endless energy, I’m ready to conquer any project large or small. I treat every client’s challenge as if it were my own; I understand and respect my clients’ needs, wants and budget. Good design can truly change your life!”
