Client review of San Francisco interior designer

After having two boys and spending a few years decorating nurseries and toddler rooms, it was time to finally have the master bedroom we always wanted. We live in the East Bay and were having a difficult time finding a designer that we connected with. We came across Niche Interior’s website and after reviewing every room displayed, we knew we found the designer we would love to work with!

From the first meeting at our home, Jennifer and her assistant, Lynn, have been wonderful to work with. They took the time to truly understand our style, provided us design options to choose from, and multiple selections for each key piece. They consulted us on our final selections to ensure everything would come together perfectly.

After the key pieces arrived it was time to accessorize. Every option Jennifer and Lynn provided we loved. Jennifer also made herself available to review anything we found on our own to ensure that what we purchased would go perfectly with the room. The room has come together so beautifully and is everything we hoped for. Our next project for Niche Interiors is our family room. Thank you, Jennifer and Lynn, for making us feel like we were your only client and giving us a master bedroom we dreamed of!

If I could give 10 stars to Niche Interiors I would.  They are hands down the BEST San Francisco interior design team! This morning while writing this review,  I am sitting in my new condo, drinking a cup of coffee (in my new comfy custom upholstery chair) and looking around at my newly designed space.  It is just amazing.  And the people responsible for this amazingly peaceful, contemporary and thoughtful design is the team at Niche Interiors.

I found Jennifer on the internet and made the initial call.  She promptly called me back and explained the process involved in working with her team. Yes, a process!  I didn’t know interior design teams followed a process and her process is efficient to say the least. We were on a tight schedule moving into our new space and needed the design to happen fast. Additionally, my partner and I were trying to combine our two different styles.  We were worried the creativity and design would be lost while trying to make our deadlines.  We were completely wrong!  Jennifer helped us from to start to finish–individually asking us questions about our styles and interests, selecting paint colors, choosing furniture and creating a floor plan.  We LOVED the options she presented! Jennifer has impeccable taste and it shines through on her projects. I would HIGHLY recommend Niche Interiors if you want someone who has a wonderful design eye, is professional, efficient, cost-effective and awesome to work with.  And to top it off–she stays in budget!!!

Jennifer is fantastic to work with. She is organized, professional, and flexible. We worked with another designer prior to hiring Jennifer and found the process to be so much more difficult and stressful. Jennifer was always completely responsive and really listened to our thoughts and concerns. She has a great eye too and we were very happy with how the project turned out. We would not hesitate to hire her in the future for bigger projects.

We have been working with Jennifer for over a year as we completed a total house makeover/remodel. She is amazing! With fresh and innovative ideas, Jennifer was able to capture our vision (or have a vision where we didn’t) and execute the design flawlessly.

She always had plenty of suggestions and options which allowed us to be an active part of the process and was always respectful of our budget. Her thoughtfulness insured that the project remained relevant and functional for our lifestyle (with a toddler) while holding to her beautiful aesthetic. She has been such fun to work with and a professional from start to finish. In the end, Niche Interiors delivered an outcome above and beyond our expectation and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Jennifer has a great eye, is easy to work with, and did a great job of suggesting items that were within our budget. We will definitely work with her for any future home projects.

Jen helped us decorate our entire house. Our project was 3 bedrooms, a living room/dining room and eat-in kitchen. She helped us pick out over forty pieces and it all came together beautifully. She was always timely and always stayed within budget. She overcame my challenges of buying things that looked nice, but were durable and child friendly, since we have three young children and a large dog. I would highly recommend her work and will definitely work with her in the future.

My husband and I had recently bought our first home and knew we needed somebody with an experienced eye in interior design to help us. We found Niche Interiors’ website and, based on the aesthetic and diversity of style in we saw in the photos of Jennifer’s projects, we knew we had found the right person.

Jennifer worked with us to hone in on our aesthetic and, while she did the work of choosing the combinations of colors, patterns, etc. that worked together for our spaces, she provided us with options that made us feel very much like we were part of the process. Jennifer had an incredible ability to understand and articulate our personal style and was able to meet us within our comfort zone but also knew where to help us take some fun design risks with our space. She has a very keen understanding of how to combine design, comfort, style and functionality and, in addition, she has seemingly wonderful relationships with the vendors who she works with so her clients can be assured great quality and timeliness. We are thrilled with what Jennifer has done for us and finally feel like we live in a designed space that feels like “us”.

This was my first experience working with an interior decorator and I was nervous that I was going to end up with a room that was more their style and not mine. That was not the case with Jennifer! Jennifer really listened to what I had in mind and how I intended to use the space. She also had me look through pictures and identify what I liked/disliked in each one. I think this really helped me also get a sense of the feel of the room that I was looking for. I also loved that for each piece that was recommended, Jennifer provided three pricing options. This allowed me to really mix and match from big box stores and unique items. It also helped me stay within a budget I was comfortable with.

Throughout the process, Jennifer was always in communication and let me know where we were with each item. This was a wonderful experience and I am so happy with both the living room and media room.

We hired Niche Interiors this past summer (June 2011) to design three rooms for us from scratch, in addition to paint selections for the rest of our flat, and floor plans for the bedrooms. Jennifer delivered exactly what we wanted, even though we had little idea of what we wanted at the beginning.  Multiple conversations and viewing different design styles ensured we were all moving in the right direction each step of the way. We went in thinking we knew our design taste and realized our tastes are much broader than we originally thought.  The design we agreed upon fit our taste and the style of the space perfectly.

Jennifer knew we were budget conscious (who isn’t these days), but that didn’t throw her.  She picked out at least three options at different prices for every piece.  It allowed us to put our money towards the items that were important to us and save money on things that weren’t, while still creating a cohesive design. The couple of times we had a miscommunication or a problem it was quickly addressed, taken seriously, and solved to our satisfaction.

We have already recommended her services to multiple friends and look forward to working with her again!  We have two bedrooms and a bathroom remodel with her name on it!

Stephanie’s review
I had been looking for someone to help with our master bedroom and living room for a while, and happened across the Niche site. I am so glad that I found Jennifer – months later, these rooms are completely transformed and are places where I love spending time. Jennifer was great to work with, and has a great process for gleaning the styles & colors that you love. Her approach was very flexible and pragmatic, giving us a range of choices for each piece, fabric and paint. I highly recommend her and would work again with her in a heartbeat.
