WHAT THE CLIENT'S ARE SAYING...
"We cannot recommend Jen of JV Design more highly! Jen has been helping us over the past six months with a renovation and design project at our home in Charleston. She has brought her expert eye, deep experience and positive energy to each and every aspect of our project. Jen is a perfectionist who understands the detailed process of both renovations and decor. She works comfortably within an array of design styles, and respects her clients' tastes. Importantly, she also respects the budget she is given, and can work minor miracles with sourcing many items for less! Jen is practical, straightforward, honest and motivated to get the job done as efficiently as possible. There's no drama. She is equally helpful with the big stuff (sourcing experienced contractors for renovations and selecting large furnishings), and the small (comparing pillow fabrics and selecting door knobs). We also appreciate her definitive help with decision-making, one of the more difficult aspects of the process. We could not be more happy with our choice of designers! Thank you, Jen Vreeland McDermott."

"I have been incredibly lucky to collaborate with Jen on several projects while producing and directing shoots for This Old House. Jen always brings her “A Game” in every way. She is well prepared, thoughtful and has a great eye making sure each detail is on point, and in line with the client’s goals. In addition to her fantastic styling and design, Jen is an absolute joy to work with, and I always look forward to set days where I know we can join forces."

"Jennifer worked with us on a whole house renovation following a fire. The project took a year to complete, mostly due to mandated shutdowns caused by the pandemic. There were also supply chain issues, which she expertly navigated.
In any case, our experience was exceptional. Jennifer did a fantastic job working with our contractor, Arthur Lange Inc. She was on top of all aspects of the job. We met with the kitchen cabinet designer, and Jennifer was very helpful sorting through the wide range of options.
Her design sense is incredible, we were so glad we listened to her, even when we were not sure how it would turn out. An example of this was the custom paint design on our attic stairs.
She will work on any budget you select and will show a range of options.
She follows up in case anything is delivered damaged.
Highly highly recommend working with Jennifer."

"While filming Season 5 of Property Brothers in Westchester County, we were very pleased to have Jennifer on board as one of our Design Leads. It is a notoriously challenging position – Jennifer impressed us with everything she brought to the table– she has a keen eye for detail and the ability to remain calm under pressure. The final hours of a renovation project can make or break an episode of our show, and Jennifer proved herself to be a goal-oriented team player who kept focused and composed until the big reveal."
-Jonathan Scott & Drew Scott, Property Brothers Team
"Furnishing our home was particularly challenging for us; it's a contemporary structure that affords us a lot of light and openness, but my husband and I are traditional at heart. Jennifer knew how to masterfully blend the different styles to make it work and give us the look we wanted. Our home is now our oasis. She has made it the perfect retreat, both serene and beautiful. We look forward to coming home!"
-Denise V., New Jersey
"Working with Jennifer has been absolutely amazing. She designed our dream home, and included everything a young family needs- practicality, functionality, and an excellent use of space. She made our dream become reality. We got everything we wanted and more. She is efficient, punctual, and organized. There were no hidden costs or unexpected expenses. Doing a home renovation can be a daunting task, but Jennifer's professionalism, experience, and wonderful eye made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience."
-Victoria D., New York
"I’ve worked with Jennifer for over 10 years, and “can’t” isn’t in her vocabulary. She can manage a project while delivering on strategy, budget, design and execution. She truly excels in multitasking, and working well under pressure is one of her great talents. Being diplomatic and professional are a few other qualities that have been factors in her success. Jennifer is indispensable, and is a major asset on every project."

"After my mother passed away, renovating and updating my parent’s house so my family could move in with my father seemed like a very sad and daunting task. Jennifer listened and understood what my vision was while also taking my father’s wishes into consideration. When she presented me with her ideas, furniture, color choices and fabrics, she always provided a multitude of choices and I loved everything. I began to enjoy the process! She was very respectful of our budget and she was willing to work with our people. She didn’t require us to work with her contacts. Jennifer was always available to take my phone calls and address any uncertainty I had along the way. Our home is absolutely beautiful, warm and welcoming...exactly what I wanted."
- Alexis M., New York
"I worked with Jennifer over the course of several months to complete two bathroom renovations. I could never have gotten through it all without her! Jennifer is not only reliable and professional, she is outgoing, open-minded and optimistic – just a true pleasure to know and to work with.
Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable about both design and renovation. Her expertise was invaluable when selecting materials like tile, countertop, fixtures and paint. She is also very skilled – creating a completely new floor plan for my master bath (including the relocation of the vanity, toilet and shower). She designed several options – all with detailed sketches for review.
When it comes to style and creativity, Jennifer far exceeded my expectations. She was so perceptive to my personal taste – everything she suggested reflected my own style and personality. She introduced me to wonderful ideas and products I would never have considered. Her attention to all the many details –moldings, lighting, artwork, window treatments to name a few – came together to create two spaces I could only have dreamed of without her!"

"From the first phone call I had with Faith Ferguson Productions to discuss my twin daughter’ Sweet 16, I knew I was in good hands. I can’t thank Faith and Jennifer enough for everything they did to make Jordan and Ryann’s Sweet 16 a special memory. Faith and Jennifer were such a pleasure to work with. They made sure that my daughters were happy with every detail. I had no doubt the party was going to be special, but it exceeded our expectations in every way. Everything was absoutely perfect!"
- Robin Mitchell, New York
"Working with Jennifer was an absolutely wonderful experience. I showed her "inspiration" photos for what I wanted and she nailed every little detail. She truly transformed my space into my dream home. When friends and family walk into my house they are blown away. She worked within our budget and was flexible, swapping out more expensive pieces for less expensive options when necessary. She genuinely cared about what we wanted and making our home into the cozy, yet sophisticated family space that we envisioned. From the curtain and pillow fabrics to paint colors and light fixtures - everything she picked was perfect. Everyone who walks in my house ends up leaving wanting to redecorate their own. I was so lucky to find Jennifer and would recommend her to anyone!"
- Julie K., New York
"We were very fortunate to have Jennifer work with us to design our new master bedroom. Right from the beginning she had the right vision that worked perfectly with the modern design we had in mind. She worked closely with our contractor before and during the renovation to ensure it was all coming together perfectly. Our bedroom is now fully transformed and we have our own master retreat thanks to Jennifer. We continued to work with her on our living room and dining room where she helped us pull the space together and proved that she is versatile and can work with different styles. Jennifer is very resourceful and knows exactly where to shop for the right furniture and accessories. One thing we can say is that she listens and truly cares; she will treat your home like she is designing her own. Jennifer is truly a talented designer and we highly recommend working with her."
