LOVED WORKING WITH JACKIE...ENTIRE PROCESS LESS STRESSFUL...LOVE NEW BATHROOM

“We loved working with Jackie Lopey on our bathroom remodel project. From the moment she walked in the door we felt comfortable with her. Personable and easy to be with, she made the entire process less stressful. She listened attentively to our concerns and our needs and came up with 3 different interesting and workable plans for our space. Shortly after presenting the three plans, we realized that it was possible to switch the placement of the bathroom and the closet, after all. What did Jackie do? She willingly and cheerfully came up with new plans that included the proposed change. We are currently in the process of the remodel, but I know that we are gonna love our new bathroom. Thank you, Jackie!”
Charlene Guidry, Moraga

SPECTACULAR RESULTS...SEAMLESS PROCESS...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“Jackie had helped us with the interior decorating for my house and the results have been spectacular. She has made the entire process of choosing furniture, window coverings, rugs extremely easy. She came to our house for an initial consultation and a few days later returned with her design ideas and proposals. The entire process was seamless and the best part is my wife and I never left home. I would highly recommend Jackie for your interior design needs.”
Brad Mendonsa, Pleasant Hill

FOCUSES ON THE CLIENT'S TASTE...AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE...INCENTIVE, OUT-OF-THE-BOX IDEAS

“Jackie was a pleasure to work with: she focuses on the client’s taste and utilizing the client’s existing art work and furnishings, while adding furnishings and accessories that are consistent with that of her clients. She also was very good at finding things that were at a reasonable cost point and/or were on sale, and passed those savings on so the furnishings and accessories were an exceptional value. She also had a lot of inventive, out of the box ideas that were implemented well, to again re-utilize things we already had, in a more interesting manner.”
Steven Mehlman, Walnut Creek

EYE FOR COLOR...DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE OF INTERIOR DESIGN MATERIALS & STYLES

“I have referred Jackie to my clients on multiple occasions from very modest homes to high end homes and my clients all agree she is wonderful. I think Jackie’s eye for color and depth of knowledge of interior design, materials and style are fantastic. Her ability to do a job on a small budget or a big one makes her perfect for every job I’ve been involved with.”

ANALYZE A SPACE'S HIDDEN POTENTIAL...TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE CLIENT'S PERSPECTIVE

"Jackie’s signature strength is to analyze a space’s hidden potential and bring it to fruition via color analysis, furniture and object d’art review and placement/replacement of same while taking into account her client’s perspective and tastes. Here ability to see what sets one space apart from another through color selection alone is priceless.”
