Creating Visually Inspiring Spaces in NC & NJ

Since I was 5 years old, dance was my passion. Performing in schools, dance organizations, musical productions, and with theatre groups consumed most of my early years. I entered and graduated Rutgers University as a dance major. I landed my first “professional” business world job as a creative writer with a PR firm, then as an editor of an award-winning Realtor newsletter. My first break from all that activity was because of marriage and children (two wonderful boys). The pattern for practicing interior design was eventually established through various jobs and contacts. I worked with pretty much every aspect of the business including builders, contractors, and architects. I also worked as a design center coordinator, representative for a large model home interior design firm, designer for furniture, fabric, and wallpaper stores, and as a principal of my own design company. I continued taking courses at the Philadelphia Art Institute and with other professional networks including marketplace seminars, ASID, and IIDA workshops. These experiences have continued to fine-tune my ever-growing design trade. In addition, I have also worked with some television productions. Working with shows, such as Trading Spaces and a series on the Oprah Winfrey Network, was certainly inspiring and glamorous. But the real thrill for me has been watching my clients’ businesses and the homes transformed into well-designed, comforting, visually-inspiring, highly-functional spaces they’ve been desiring.

I am so delighted to give Donna Jean the highest rating possible for the wonderful job she did! She worked with the basics that I had in place to make our home both comfy and beautiful! Donna Jean listened to what I had in mind, then gave me her advice and shopped for some lovely accessories to complete our decor. She gave as much attention to our bathrooms and spare bedrooms as she did the main living areas and I truly couldn't be more pleased! Her opinions were spot-on and my husband and I just love the result. We also feel like we have found a new friend. : ) Donna Jean is the best - I'd give her even more stars if I could!Read More

Donna has been helping me with my decorating and design dilemmas for a very long time. She has a sense of style and color that I have never seen before. She also staged a house for me which sold the first day it was on the market. I got three offers, all full pride and close to full price. She listens to what I want and helps me achieve it. And when I have no idea what direction to go in she gently presents options that we discuss and make work. I have referred her to some of my friends and they have all been very happy with the results.Read More
