Other Locations We Service
1 – DISCOVER
The first step to any good design is getting to know your client. We will conduct an initial consultation to learn about you and your needs and wants. Existing conditions and measurements are documented carefully and we discuss how your ideal space should function for you. A scope of work is generated that outlines what we’ve learned, and then we can easily define the design services needed. Finally, we discuss coordinating all the details of budgeting, contracting, and scheduling so we can begin to fulfill your design dreams.
2 – DESIGN
Now for the fun part! We use the information gathered in your design consultation to provide you with a space plan that optimizes flow and function, and we dive into color concepts, art, and inspiration. The best designs can start from a favorite shell collection or a beloved painting. Intracoastal Interiors designs rooms that speak to your soul. We exemplify how these concepts are carried out with the thoughtful selection of furniture pieces, fabrics, lighting, and finishes that make you feel good and want to truly live in your space. For the finishing touch in the design process, we put together a mood board to help you visualize how all our finds will fit together. This board is sure to be your prized possession as we move into the final phase…
3 – INSTALL
Our traditional interior design services include complete execution of your design plan, from initial consultation until the last pillow has been fluffed. We oversee each step from ordering product, communicating status updates, scheduling subcontractors, and making sure your design dreams are realized without you having to lift a finger. It is such a privilege for us to see the transformation of your space and help make the process a fun and enjoyable one.

We called Jenny after she was referred to us from a neighbor. She got to work right away by finding out what it was we wanted in a new kitchen remodel. We knew she understood us when she presented the design board for our kitchen. Jenny assisted us in picking our paint colors, tile back splash, lighting fixtures as well as flooring and cabinet hardware, all of which we love. Being new to the Wilmington area we didn't know many people and Jenny was instrumental in getting us in touch with wonderful painters, flooring and drywall contractors, as well as tile and granite showrooms. We would definitely work with Jenny again and would recommend her to anyone looking for an interior designer.Michele Mise Brandon8/28/2019
Jenny was a pleasure to work with on a remodeling project including two dated commercial lobbies and a stairwell. The process was seamless and her attention to detail and level of communication was second to none. I would strongly recommend her for any interior design related project.Daniel Glenn8/28/2019
We were introduced to Jenny & Intracoastal Interiors by our builders, who have used Jenny in the design end of projects they have worked on. Our experience with Jenny was exceptional! She is extraordinarily personable, listens to what your design goals are & works toward that end, is very adept at resourcing design options at all price levels, timely in communication & sharing ideas, & has access to a multitude of resources. Our project was a beach house that we were working on from out of town, & Jenny was very accomodating in going to the job site when needed & efficiently communicating with our builder & project manager.We couldn't be more pleased with the design help we received from Jenny at Intracoastal Interiors!Thomas Stone8/28/2019
Working with Jenny was exceptional. She is very resourceful and has connections to the vendors and technical resources needed to make a dream come to fruition. What drew me to choose Intracoastal Interiors for our living room and den projects was that I could tell she would be someone who got me to the Finish. Throughout the process she listened, measured, searched for products and gave insightful opinions when necessary. As a busy mom myself, she made our move into our new home effortless by scoping products at stores and taking me to see the key ones. She managed our project within budget and really found us quality, fun, stylish pieces that I would've never found myself.We hosted our first party this past week in our new spaces and everyone felt comfortable and kept commenting on how perfect the house was. I had to admit - I had some very accessible, expert help - from Intracoastal Interiors.Leah Bussert8/28/2018
