Meet Joseph

Joseph Andre Rodrigues "JR" is a dynamic Brazilian interior designer with extensive experience in the design industry. His career began in stone and tile showrooms, where he developed a passion for kitchen and bathroom designs and a deep appreciation for natural materials.

JR further honed his skills by obtaining a Fine Arts Degree in Interior Architecture from Woodbury University. During this time, he also became a certified interior designer while working for a reputable interior design firm. However, driven by his own vision and creative aspirations, JR decided to embark on his own design journey and established Joseph Rodrigues Interiors, known as "JRI."

With a design aesthetic that prioritizes balance and harmony, JR pays meticulous attention to the relationship and contrast between each element within a space. He draws inspiration from organic finishes, earthy colors, and textures found in nature, recognizing and celebrating the subtle beauty they offer. Throughout the design process, JR places great emphasis on incorporating the client's unique identity and style, ensuring a personalized experience in every aspect of the project.

JR's approach to design goes beyond aesthetics; he understands the importance of functionality and practicality in creating spaces that are not only visually appealing but also cater to the clients' needs and lifestyle. By blending his artistic background with his technical expertise, JR seamlessly combines creativity and functionality to deliver custom transitional designs.

Client Testimonials

When Joseph Rodrigues (JR) came to our house for the very first time, my husband and I immediately felt comfortable with him. He was a good listener, polite, professional, knowledgable, truthful and loved on our dog! After explaining to him our needs, ideas and dreams, he shared his amazing creation with us which included a wall removal between the dining room and kitchen. His design layout of the kitchen was exactly what we had imagined and he was able to incorporate a difficult existing load bearing post within the island. I was especially impressed with how he "flowed" our entertainment wall into a needed workspace for me. He listened to our requests of keeping the colors neutral, warm and simple and provided amazing samples for us to choose from with the floor, cabinets, backsplash, lighting and hardware. He was very patient with me as I struggled with the cabinet faces and was always honest with me when my ideas were going the wrong "direction". Once demolition began, JR was consistently involved throughout the 4 month process. He always communicated with the contractor, subcontractors and us! Whenever I would text him, he'd respond quickly. We will not hesitant to have JR help us with a project again! We love JR and everything he did to make our home comfortable and beautiful.Read More

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
