Janet has been my go to interior decorator for several years- I have worked with her a number of times to update my Lake Shore condominium. Through great interpersonal relationship skills, expert decorating assistance, comprehensive and conversant knowledge of room layouts and resource recommendations, Janet Shepherd transformed my interior space from nice to spectacular using items I already owned. My expectations for a more stylish living/dining room were far exceeded. She is the point of contact from start to finish and works with me every step of the way- I did not need to get involved with any of the contractors (painters, window treatment installation etc.) as Janet oversees all of their work and makes sure it meets my expectations. My most recent home update included painting the entire unit, selecting new dining room chairs and upholstery, and updating and selecting fabric for my living room window treatments. She has a great eye for color and detail and always makes me aware of the “big picture”- she doesn’t just focus on one room at a time but rather lays out a complete vision for the apartment and how to make it a reality. She is extremely organized and the entire process was seamless.

Janet served as project manager for our total condo remodel and also worked with us to combine existing and new furnishings to redo the design and décor of the unit. She gave us tremendous assistance with the overall design concept, and her passion and attention to detail in the execution of our plan was extraordinary.
Janet’s wonderful talent and creativity, combined with her extensive knowledge of the Chicago area’s top contractors and tradesmen as well as its marketplace for furnishings and décor, allowed us to achieve our goal: a remodeled, stylish condo which we can enjoy for years to come.

She turned my home into a showcase (literally) by working with my furniture and sense of style. By adding a few pieces here and there, she made my home look like something you only see in magazines.

From arranging and choosing furniture, to selecting paint color and accessories as well as contractors if needed, Janet will follow the project through from beginning to end.

The most important thing I can say about Janet is that her follow up throughout the interior decorating process was absolutely incredible. From the contractors to the vendors, she made sure things got done. Every day, she kept me updated on the status of my project as we pulled together the contemporary look I’ve always wanted. Now whenever anyone comes over, I always get a lot of compliments on my home.
