My husband, Bill and I live in Mound, MN where we purchased a SUPER ugly lake home 5 years ago to completely renovate ourselves. Coming from a brand new condo in downtown Minneapolis, this was quite a change for me. Since then we now have two children (Grace and Sam) and a crazy golden doodle puppy – life moves fast!
I’ve had an eye for design my entire life. At the age of 8 I wanted a very simple black and white bedroom without much clutter and my simple/timeless style has stuck with me ever since. Friends and family have been telling me for years to get into design/decorating or for my husband and I to go into the house flipping business after seeing our home completed.
It finally began when a good friend asked me to decorate her entire house. I had an absolute blast picking out everything from paint colors, light fixtures, furniture, wall décor, etc…. She then had a neighborhood gathering at her home and three of her neighbors wanted to hire me to decorate/design their homes.
I’ve also helped friends with renovations ideas and staging their homes to sell. After staging a friends home and giving a few small updating ideas, their home sold in one day!
This is truly my passion and something I LOVE to do!
Jen is incredible! I can't imagine a designer I'd rather work with. She played an important role in preparing our home for sale. She was respectful of our ideas and wants as well as using her creativity and attention to detail to create a beautiful space! It looked so great we didn't want to move and our home sold in one day!
When I moved into my new condo, I asked Jen to decorate my entire space. She picked out everything from the furniture to home décor and wall art. The final product was amazing and exactly my style. It looked like a model home. Jen is very talented and this is definitely her calling.
I've had the pleasure to work with Jen while decorating our house. She really took the time to get to know our style and what we were looking for. I can't thank her enough for transforming some of the rooms in our home! If anyone is in the market to decorate their home, I would highly recommend Decorating with Grace!! She turned our house into a home!
