Those who know Janet know she deftly designs beautiful, balanced and harmonious spaces that offer a modern, timeless take on eclecticism – always with pops of the unexpected. “I aim to create spaces that encourage a nurturing and uplifting energy,” she says. “I am deeply committed to each client and translating their personalities and personal visions into designs that enable them to truly feel at home.”
Janet has decades of design experience in the Dallas area, though she has completed residential projects throughout the U.S. Her creative interests were fostered at a young age: both of her parents are artists. “I find true joy in helping my clients imagine spaces that not only inspire them – but those around them,” she says. “It’s all about the ‘wow’ factor.”
Her fervor for finding and mixing objects extends to her treasure-hunting hobby – Janet never skips a consignment store or flea market. When it comes to her closet, though, she leans slightly more reserved: black blazers, white v-neck tees, blue jeans, ankle boots and a statement timepiece are standbys. As is a forever classic: “I always keep a little black dress on rotation,” she says.
