Testimonials


My spouse and I have relied on Jaqi Green's services in decorating our current and previous home. We have found her services invaluable, and we could not imagine setting up a home without her. Ms. Green is gifted at what she does, and passionate about it.
This combination has repeatedly inspired and served us.
Ms. Green listens carefully to our wishes and then guides us towards decisions that meet those wishes, and often exceed expectations. Many times after Ms. Green has completed a particular project in our home I will contact her to let her know the joy that her work brings us. She recently completed a project for us that makes us happy every time we look at it. Her eye for color and style, her attention to detail and her inspirational vision has allowed us to create a home we love.

“Whether you need help with the nuts and bolts of a project or just the silks and satins, Jaqi Green can help. She is a confident, experienced designer who understands that communication, contacts and planning are key elements to successful completion of a project. It was a pleasure to have Jaqi skillfully lead the way on the recent addition to our home." Kathy A., Streeterville



Jaqi Green has handled several updates/improvement projects for my condo. I found her to be responsive, creative, considerate of client's preferences, and efficient in her use of time. She followed through in a timely and responsible manner. Additionally, she was able to recommend other reliable resource contacts for related functions.

After I observed how our hallway redecorating project dragged on for over 18 months and came in over budget, I knew that we needed help on our next decorating project. So I signed up for the lobby/party room decorating committee. We agreed that we needed the help of a designer. Jaqi Green Interiors was a suggestion from one of our building owners who had used her services in years past. 

We went to view Jaqi's work, and liking what we saw, had her bid on our job. After interviewing and getting bids from 3 designers, Jaqi was selected as the best fit for us. Jaqi was able to coordinate with 4 committee members for meetings and product selection in person, by phone and by email. She made sure she had everything she needed to do the job before starting construction so our residents were disturbed as little as possible, and the work was done in large chunks allowing us to close down these spaces for limited time.

Jaqi had several challenges such as existing patterned carpet in party room, and existing tile in entry and hallways to consider in her selections. Jaqi was not afraid to suggest ways to re-use, update or re-purpose some of our existing furnishing when that made sense. She chose some bold patterns and colors bringing new life to our spaces.

Jaqi was able to find furnishings that gave us versatility and freedom to move in our smaller areas. Our job met some challenges with water in a closet area, Jaqi made recommendation to cut out the carpet and extend out the tile being used in kitchen, still able to keep our budget and timeline in tact.

It was very important for us to stay under budget and Jaqi made that happen. She kept us informed with a spread sheet detailing all costs. We are so glad that we chose Jaqi and are very satisfied with our new look.

I have used Jaqi Green's services in decorating my home, and I enjoyed working with her so, that when our condo board was looking for a designer to work with us on our lobby and party room, I recommended her as a contender in our bidding process.  Our committee toured the common spaces she did in her building (lobby, party room, fitness center, hallways, elevators and laundry room). Once we saw her work and got a bid on what we were looking for, we all agreed she was the designer we needed.

Jaqi used her enthusiasm for color and space planning to coordinate our spaces, and her people skills to bring 4 committee members (one of whom was only available via phone and email limited hours while in Africa). Jaqi made sure she photographed all the samples and provided links to everything she was suggesting so that all were kept up to date.

She provided new ceiling, flooring, kitchen space, furnishings, lighting and of course lots of color through her selections. She kept us on budget and delivered / installed all the product in a timely fashion. I smile every time I walk into our building.

Jaqi Green is a pure joy to work with. She understood our eclectic taste. Jaqi turned a rather dysfunctional living area into a showplace. The minute she arrived at our home she rolled up her sleeves and got to work. Jaqi stayed with us during the time she was redesigning our home and it was not uncommon to wake up and find her in her bathrobe moving furniture and contemplating how to make her great ideas even better.

We laughed alot and there is no better person to shop with than Jaqi. She knew how to talk to the designers and sales people at the furniture, carpet and design stores we visited. We were able to get so much accomplished in such a short time because of her ability to communicate exactly what we were looking for and stood her ground on prices and ideas. I could probably write a book about how much gratitude we owe Jaqi for our beautiful home. The best part is that everyone who walks through our door comments on what a wonderful place we have. Jaqi comes with our highest recommendation! Thank you, Jaqi, for your incredible ideas!

Jaqi, helped us design a complete kitchen make-over including creating the design for our tiles.
She also has been a consultant for us on wall colors, furniture, room arrangement. Jaqi has exquisite taste. She also has a perpetually upbeat attitude and is a joy to work with. My wife and I highly recommend her for any home design job.

Our condo building had done very little work on updating finishes in the years prior to my presidency, so when I took office, it was time for a lot of remodeling. Jaqi, of Jaqi Green Interiors, a resident of our building, had worked on our Lobby gratis along with another resident in order to get us going, so when we finally had a budget together to do the other spaces, Jaqi was in the running with the other designers we interviewed.

Our Party Room and Fitness Room were our top priorities. Neither had been touched in 15 years. Once we started, we added the Laundry room and hallways to the list. Next, our elevators started acting up, and we took on a full remodel of those as well (it’s hard to spend that much money and time on a project and not be able to “see” a change, so in addition to the electronics / mechanicals, we did the interiors.  Jaqi researched many buildings in the area looking at finishes, lighting and flooring, making sure we used materials that not only looked good, but were functional and easy to maintain. 

Samples / sample boards and budgets were provided for the various projects and voted on by the residents at our board meetings. 

Shortly after the above projects were finished, our lobby floors started to buckle and Jaqi delivered a wonderful replacement. By creating a custom “carpet” inset in the entry switching up the color, size and texture of the granite used, she coordinated the new floors with all the existing brick and paneling, and the floors are sure to get us through another 30 years.

Jaqi Green came out to our new home for a color consultation in our kitchen. Over the years as our kids have gone from toddlers to teenagers and changing bedrooms around, we've ended up with new paint throughout our home, window treatments, carpeting, lighting help and furniture rearrangement.
Jaqi is pretty no nonsense, AND has a great sense of humor! She keeps me on track and makes sure I hold up my end of her “More Joy, Less Stress” agreement. Working together truly was just that.

We hired Jaqi Green Interiors on 2 separate occasions. The first time was just after our building opened and needed simple paint and carpet throughout the hallways and linoleum on the mezzanine level lobby. Jaqi brought us many samples of carpeting and linoleum, and some of which contained recycled materials and we very much appreciated that.

After selecting the carpet patterns for the hallways / elevator lobbies, Jaqi coordinated paint colors to compliment the flooring. A few years later, we had Jaqi back to put together a lobby seating area for us, since the space is small, it was a challenge, but she did a fine job.  Once the furniture was in place, we had Jaqi consult with us on artwork for the walls, which will be rotated out by the artist from time to time.   

It’s been a few years now and with our building reserves growing our board is discussing some additional work, which will get Jaqi back to us once again. 

We are happy to recommend Jaqi Green Interiors for any design project.
