Client Testimonials

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

JR helped us with a complete remodel of our master bathroom and closets and it was such a pleasant experience from beginning to end. We wanted an updated, modern, luxurious, tranquil bathroom with lots of storage. Functionality was key. We came to JR with our wish list (everything from a bidet to a skincare fridge) and he provided options that were both functional and beautiful. Frankly, we didn't realize how beautiful his design was until we started to see all the details come together. JR thought of special touches and finishes (like a gorgeous slab framed window enclosure) that we didn't even know we wanted and yet fell in love with immediately. He is a perfectionist in all the best ways. Excellent communicator and really listens. We put our trust in his skills and he delivered a bathroom that gives us all the functionality we asked for and is more beautiful than we imagined. I also have to give so much credit to his tradespeople. JR has a wonderful, highly skilled team that shows up ready to work and they all take great pride in their work. Needless to say, we are so happy!Read More

It was a pleasure working with Joseph Rodrigues (JR) on our complete remodel of our kitchen (which is pictured on We are so happy to wake up to a glorious kitchen with a breakfast nook & coffee bar every morning! We get so many complements on the colors, layout, appliances, and timeless style and we couldn’t have done it without JR. He also worked with us on the redesign of our fireplace, wallpaper in dining room, new area rugs, and paint color and new flooring throughout the entire house. JR did a great job getting to know our style, personalities, budget, timing and the overall vibe we are looking for in the design. JR is very talented and gives great advise, but more importantly he is a good listener and extremely patient. He spent a lot of time listening to what we were trying to accomplish and he was able to present several options for us to choose from for each stage of the process. He was always professional and paid attention to all the details we would have overlooked. He connected us with vendors and suppliers to help us lower the costs of the overall project. He knows the timing on supplies, which during these crazy times, was very helpful. JR is very dedicated to his clients and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. He drove the process and always kept us on-track with things we needed to do. JR made some design suggestions that we would have never selected on our own and we’re very happy we went with his recommendations. We would use JR again on another project and have recommended him to friends and family. JR loves his job and it shows in his beautiful designs. Thank you for everything JR!Read More
