Characterized by her personalized approach and creativity, Jen Dallas melds sophistication and history in creating the design of each project. Well-versed in many periods and styles, she has a true appreciation for the old meets the new. She strives to add character throughout her well chosen design details.
Jen goes far beyond the traditional designer; carefully collaborating and incorporating her client’s nature as a whole; their purpose, aspirations, and goals to make a positive change in the home, office and garden. Research plays a vital role in Jen’s work; her process begins with an individualized client program tailored to reflect client conversations and meetings. Jen explains,“Our collaborative design process helps our clients hone into creating a clear vision of their desired lifestyle; together we create a way of living that involves ease and comfort, taking our clients to a whole new way of being.”
