What People are Saying About JAGOD DESIGN
We wanted “being home” to feel good in every way, for all members of our family, big and small.
Also, we needed help creating a space that would bridge our past (a slew of crumbling NY rentals) and our present (this strange new “Pacific Northwest” thing). Our particular challenge was to find ways in which to create soul and personality in a newly built home. We hated the sterile, beige suburban look that seemed to be the norm in the model homes we toured, but also wanted to avoid forcing a Brooklyn brownstone vibe where it didn’t belong.
As a native Seattleite with cosmopolitain sensibilities and a creative approach to practical challenges, Joey was the perfect choice. After spending time understanding our lives and ideas, Joey drew from a rich design background to help us turn a plot of dirt into a home we love living in. Joey worked with us through every stage of the build – from room layout to paint, tile, flooring and exterior and, ultimately, furnishings and “soft” elements.
The result is a home, situated in the heart of walkable downtown Kirkland, that feels true to both local culture and our own sense of style. Happy, comfortable, smart and cool, our home works brilliantly for playdates, dinner parties, meetings and movie night.
There are many designers out there who will steer you to the latest trends while slowly nudging you out of both your aesthetic and financial comfort zones. Joey is a different breed – he “hears” you and then brings ingenuity and experience to design solutions. In many cases he helped us avoid costly mistakes and was brilliant at finding affordable alternatives to our fantasy Pinterest wish-list.
Joey is a force. We love him and recommend that you snap him up quickly, before someone does. The cat is out of the bag!
