What People are Saying About JAGOD DESIGN

We engaged Jagod Designs to help us design what we like to call a “performance” home – one which would transition seamlessly and constantly from play-space to workplace, social-hub to retreat. We believe a great home can help people live better – by being functional, comforting and inspiring as needed.

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!

Shireen&George-Kirland Home

Joey Jagod not only has exquisite taste and a well-curated network of resources – he is also a divine pleasure to work with. His real knack is in figuring out your own personal style, and creating a custom look for you based lifestyle. He does not shy away from a challenge, and always brings positive energy to the task at hand. His ability to choose colors and patterns that are beautiful, inspired and “just right” is unparalleled. The choices Joey made for us have lasted well into a second decade and they still feel both timeless and fresh. I will never trust anyone else to design our home – now and into the future.

Working with Joey was such a pleasure. Our shopping excursions were so much fun. He knows all the great places to shop for that just right item that pulls a space together. He has a great eye and really knows how to curate a space to bring out its best. He also has a great sense of composition, and most importantly (for me) he’s really great with color!

Hoyt-Downtown Seattle Condo

Joey Jagod has a flawless sense of style – he is immensely creative,  and is a knowledgeable resource in the world of interior design. He brings a chic sensibility but is quite cognizant of the need for everyday living. Joey respected our budget, our timelines, and gave great advice on investment pieces vs vintage renewals.  He is available, professional,  and fun to work with.

Working with Jagod Designs is always a wonderful experience. With other designers there is a need to be constantly involved to be sure that everything is being done to my taste. Joey makes it easy to take a step back and relax all the while knowing that the details in my home will be comfortable, functional, and always beautiful. I have worked with Joey on my home in Seattle as well as my new home in Los Angeles. Both are wonderfully different, and perfectly designed. I could not give him a higher recommendation.
