I highly recommend Jacquie for all things remodeling and interior design. Exterior design too! I first enlisted her help when I was considering a major remodel. I wanted to combine 3 rooms into one large open space as a kitchen and dining area.
Using an online 3D rendering tool, Jacquie modeled ideas for the layout and decor of the space. Seeing what it could look like, to scale, was absolutely necessary for me to make the decision to go for it.
She worked tirelessly with me for months, advising me on every aspect of this project from selecting a GC to selecting flooring, paint, architectural tile, window placement, exterior changes related to window changes, granite, you name it she helped me with it! Making such large purchases would have been more stressful than fun, but with her expert guidance and the education she freely gave me along the way, I knew I would love the end result. That peace of mind was priceless.
She was also a joy to work with. Her positive energy was contagious and her level-headed management was inspiring. She was mindful every step of the way of my budget and has the experience to know where spending more really matters and where it does not.
Enlisting the help of a professional was the smartest thing I could have done! I love my new home and still smile and think of her every time I walk in the door.
One last thing that might surprise you! 90% of the time we spent together was done over video calls and text! Jacquie flew in during the final stage of work to work with the GC on final touches and to make sure everything was as it should be. Virtual consulting is wonderfully convenient and efficient!
Your surroundings should reflect who you are!

"Blending his and hers ...
Susan said: Jacqueline is awesome! I'm SO glad we found her. We recently "blended" our homes and were feeling overwhelmed and wanted the advise of a professional. Merging "his" and hers" can be a difficult and sensitive process. In addition, I had difficulty trying to merge the color scheme of our blended items. I struggled to put it all together without seeing it visually. We needed someone to give us their expertise so that we could proceed. I contacted Jacquie and voila'!

Read what our clients have said...
Polished, professional, and adaptable. Jacquie "gets it". She is sensitive to budget, open to ideas, and has a keen eye for design. Many times, I felt like she knew my style better than I knew myself. I highly recommend Jacquie for any project, large or small. She truly elevates your home from "oh, cute" to "wow, this is amazing" !!!
Call her first...
Tim said: "Jacquie just finished a remodel of our home here in the San Diego area. The design turned out perfectly!!!
What a delightful person to work with! We are so pleased with the results. If you’re looking for a great designer, please do yourself a favor and call her first.
Thanks again Jacquie!!!! We love our home."
What a talent...
"We have worked with Jacquie for several months now. We like that Jacquie works with our current furniture as much as possible, whenever it fits in with the new design. She had several great ideas regarding kitchen lighting, paint color, furniture and decor that encouraged us to move out of our comfort zone (i.e. white fur rug in front of the fireplace and live edge wood tables in the family room). She is nice, kind, fun and easy to work with. We will continue to work with her in the future."
We recently moved to San Diego bringing with us a few heirloom pieces from our old home. We had inherited these very unusual pieces from family who often traveled internationally. Our new home is very contemporary, and I had been unable to see any way to incorporate our heirloom pieces. Jacquie has such a flair in making them work with amazing vision. Each time, I felt sure it wouldn’t work but then to be delightfully surprised. Not only was I very pleased - we had fun!
Showcasing YOUR personality!
Jacquie has transformed our house into an extension of us.
My husband and I had recently inherited a wide range of items, including antique dressers, Turkish plates, a wedding Kimono, and champion rodeo belt buckles.
Jacquie was able to create a theme for our house and build off of the eclectic items from our families. There are not many designers who are able to showcase their client's personalities (rather than their own), and Jacquie is one of them.
Can a room give you a hug?
Jacquie is simply amazing. We wanted to move but decided to let Jacquie work her magic until we were ready to do so. When she was done we loved our home so much we've decided not to move.
She said our home would be so warm & inviting "it will give you a hug when you walk in".
She was right!
Thank You Jacquie!!!
In a week's time...
...we went through the room needing touches to pull the new furniture together. I was scared even to mention the gathering we were having the following week, but she just smiled and said "perfect, I will be shopping this weekend and we'll get together before then!"
She is amazing. She purchases items within your budget - adds ideas you wouldn't have considered, blends with what you already have for a fresh new look.
I will use Jacquie again.
Surprise remodel - 2 weeks
Tim said: We started with just the Master Bedroom and after I saw her vision I asked her to help on the rest of the house. She listened to what I wanted and delivered! So much fun to work with and will recommend her with enthusiasm.
Designer's Note: The client gave us two weeks before his wife returned to pull off remodeling 85% of their home! We not only repurposed their furniture, added lighting, purchased additional pieces BUT added two barn doors. Was great fun and we got it done!

Loads of experience...
Craig said: "Jacquie has loads of experience. She is a real pro. She isn't stuck on any one or two design concepts - she listens to what you want, and then designs around that.
She is cost-conscious, but knows where money spent makes a big difference.
Could not be happier."
As estate executor...
Bruce said: "I'm so glad I found you!" As the executor of his cousin's estate in Palm Springs, Bruce realized by living in Oregon the distance would make it impossible and costly to make all the necessary trips to document, store, sell, distribute and follow the details of the Trust. Step by step - estate management services weree provided.
As needed - when needed - ongoing until completed!
Same but larger...
Robin said: "Same small rooms, more pieces of furniture and appointments and yet every room seems larger since Jacquie redesigned my place and space.
She has the ability to see things in new ways. Her touch to any home is refreshing, stimulating and yet soothing. It's still my home just more comfortable and efficient!
I cannot recommend Jacquie's skills enough!"
A true professional...
Dina said: "I personally got to interact with Jacquie when she was remodeling D'Carlos Restaurant, their exterior signage and website.
She is a true professional with great vision. She takes your ideas, wants and makes your dream become a reality.
All this is done while respecting your time and budget constraints."
Parents were downsizing...
Roger said: "My parents in Southern California were needing to downsize; and while I was able to arrange new living arrangements, I frankly could not be available (living in Florida) to determine what should be moved and what should be sold or given away. I did not have the time nor the skills to determine what would fit in their new living arrangements.
Jacquie Evans, as a project manager, was able to take care of all of this in addition to scheduling the move.
Men need their space, too!
Note from Jacquie: I worked with a delightful woman in redesigning several of her rooms: family room, bedroom. While we worked within her budget rather slowly, we totally (and quickly, I might add) converted a third seldom-used sitting area (not on the agenda) into a very dignified masculine game room for her husband's poker group - which he NOW wants to host EVERY month!
She has the uncanny ability...
Marcia said: "Jacquie has the uncanny ability to walk into a room and immediately know exactly what needs to be moved, taken out, brought in, balanced or purchased to enhance the room to its fullest based on what makes her clients comfortable! She has no desire to use a cookie-cutter approach but instead thrives on creating a unique environment for each client. Her ability to know just what a man needs in his environment is as strong as her awareness of the value of the feminine touch.
Jacquie is the best listener...
Marilou Edwards, Tourism Director of the Lexington Tourism Bureau said: “Jacquie came to our small community on several occasions to assist and direct our fledgling tourism business. Her direction was right on target. The advice she gave to shop owners increased their walk-ins, recommendations for curb-appeal and over-all dressing up the downtown area was exactly what we needed. She listened to what we wanted and then delivered. (Jacquie is the best listener I have ever met.)
Let yourself go wild with stimulating appointments. Bring in softness whenever you can in a flat atmosphere. If you have no illumination in an area, create one!
How you and others FEEL about your space is determined by visual impact!
Positive or Negative
If your home lacks luster & continuity, will you find peace or energy when you enter?
If you deflect me at the entrance - to your community or to your business -
will I enter or (worse yet) leave my business?
If your website is one-dimensional, will I see your business as having any depth?
If the condition of your office deflects me at the entrance -
will I see you as seriously professional?
