+ Jean-Ann, nicknamed JA around the store, has been working for us since March 2022. Before joining our team, Jean-Ann graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and worked 7 years in retail. She also completed a mentorship with an experienced designer.
+ Jean-Ann’s MF+D favorite has to be Ryan Studio pillows! Her style is deeply rooted in Southern design, blending a minimalist yet traditional approach. She is currently enamored with the organic beauty of natural wood tones and neutral textiles layered with animal prints. JA also thinks that soft lighting is key for creating the right ambiance in your space! 💡
+ When asked how she likes to tackle the design process, Jean-Ann says, “My approach begins with understanding the client's needs and the functional requirements of their space. From there, I introduce them to our store favorites and a range of options available. I utilize design mood boards to visualize and refine the overall concept, carefully selecting furniture styles that resonate with their vision. The final step involves meticulously choosing individual pieces and crafting a complete package that transforms their space!”
+ FUN FACT: Jean-Ann and her husband enjoy the serenity of their little house in the North Georgia mountains. When not designing, you can find JA adding personal touches to her home, staying active with Zumba, or playing tennis. 🏠💃🏼🎾
