Client Testimonials

We hired Joseph Rodrigues (JR) to assist with furnishings for our new home as construction was being completed. This was an endearing project for us, as this is our forever home. Despite the pandemic’s supply chain challenges, JR was able to create a beautiful and complete design. He planned everything ahead of time and got most of the furniture and furnishings installed by the moment they were needed. JR’s process was thorough and straightforward, he listened carefully to what we wanted to accomplish. He not only delivered a thoughtful product but exceeded our expectations. Our home feels comfortable and tailored to our lifestyle. JR and his team did a phenomenal job in designing, coordinating, and providing us with a cohesive project. We are very glad we trusted his expertise and creativity. We highly recommend Joseph Rodrigues Interiors!Read More

JR, the owner of Joseph Rodrigues Interiors, is what you need if you are searching for an interior designer. He designed improvements to my bathrooms and kitchen. I work for an architectural firm, and it was clear from the onset that JR is a true professional: organized, passionate and a candid partner in the design process. The design turned out beautiful. In fact, I do not think it would be an exaggeration to say that it could be featured in a high quality magazine. It’s clear that JR loves his work. From the development of the contract, the design, the selection of materials and the construction of the improvements, JR proved himself to be a consummate pro.Read More

From start to finish, JR was fantastic to work with. He was detailed, timely, and his design aesthetic brought together everything we wanted in a way that met the practical needs of our family, but with gorgeous style. Our kitchen remodel included opening walls, raising ceilings, moving appliances and plumbing, and cohesively connecting multiple rooms - a scary endeavor to take on for first time renovators. JR made the process manageable and stayed within our budget. The highlight was his management of everyone who worked on the project to ensure things ran smoothly and on-time. There is no way we could have tackled this remodel by ourselves, and no way it would have turned out as gorgeous without JR. We are so thankful for his work and highly recommend him!Read More

I can’t believe we live in such a beautiful house, and it’s all thanks to Joseph. Our expectations were exceeded in every way. My house is a mid century ranch that sorely needed an update, and he transformed it into a timeless, airy, coastal cottage with a modern touch. The project included significant structural changes, and Joseph worked in tandem with the architect and contractors so that the burden was lifted from me. Even my contractors said they’d never seen such an organized and fastidious designer - starting with the indexed binder he created that had all appliance specs, color specs, etc. He frequently walked the job and found errors made by the contractor due to his structural knowledge. (Joseph know structure and design.) I am controlling by nature but conscientiously made the decision to give Joseph 100% control of everything. He would always ask for our input to make sure we were aligned with his vision, and something unimaginably beautiful was created. Admittedly, I didn’t always understand his final vision, but that’s why he’s an artist and I’m not. However, I trusted his proposals and gave him free range to execute, and I’m glad I did. Seriously - just give up control to him and you’ll be amazed at the end product. We asked him to blend an airy, organic coastal style with Nordic and modern minimalist… and somehow, we got that and something more. Major renovations aren’t easy, but he guided us the whole way.Read More

We worked with JR on a major home remodel and could not be more pleased with the result. From the beginning of the process, he internalized our project goals and wish list — including preserving the historic character and unique architecture of our home while updating the dated feel — and helped us create a design which exceeded our expectations. JR was communicative and adaptable throughout the process. He provided additional options when we were uncertain about certain patterns or finishes, heard our concerns, and incorporated our feedback into a design we’re proud to have in our home. Working with JR was a wonderful experience and we would happily recommend him to anyone undertaking any ambitious design project.Read More
