If you’re curious to learn more about what it’s like to design a show house, this one is for you!
In this episode, I speak with residential interior designer Jennifer Muirhead, of Jennifer Muirhead Interiors, all about her experience and the process of designing rooms for a show house.
She shares what it was like to move across the country, re-start her business and how she got involved in show house design. I learn the surprising outcome of this project, the post-event procedure, and the best (and worst) aspects of working on something like this.
You’ll discover how Jennifer balances her design style to attract the ideal client, weighs the costs against the return, and her terrific marketing idea to draw in new opportunities.
Jennifer Muirhead started her eponymous design firm in 2012 in Los Angeles. After the 2008 recession (and a few years working in tv production and as a lifestyle magazine editor), she reevaluated her passions and went back to school for interior design. She began taking on design projects almost immediately and hasn’t looked back since.
Today, Jennifer delivers bespoke spaces to clients in the NJ/NY metropolitan area. Drawing on both her West Coast and East Coast experiences, she finds the sweet spot between modern and classic elements, creating spaces that are welcoming, authentic and casually elegant. Jennifer’s work has been featured in Homes and Gardens UK, Lonny, Martha Stewart.com, Apartment Therapy and Style Me Pretty. She now resides in historic New Vernon, NJ with her husband, daughter and King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
