A note from Jaan about her approach to Residential design:


I have learned from the experience of living that all things are connected. A month before graduating from college I prayed for a way to find a career that would meld the two courses of study that had captured my interest, psychology and design.  In the mid 1960’s the design of the home into which my mother and her new husband moved my brother and me taught me that a house could negatively affect the well being of a family.  I wanted to find a way to help other people who may be living under similar circumstances.  It wasn’t until twenty-five years later, three retail businesses (where I sold decorative accessories, furniture, fine handcrafts and art) and the raising of two grown children that I discovered the ancient art of Feng Shui.  In the mid 1990’s I began studying Feng Shui with the best national and international teachers I could find.  I continue to learn and grow in my understanding of the art.  My path also led me to study the natural environment and the way of energy with a Cherokee elder in North Carolina.  I learned the native ways of honoring the earth and clearing and blessings our dwellings.  From my work with the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Western North Carolina I was trained in leading spiritual retreats, labyrinth work and creating sacred space.  I am grateful for the connection of all of these teachings that have led me to knowing how to assist others in creating healthy and vibrant environments in which to thrive.


My work with clients is a fusion between interior design, lifestyle visioning,
space planning, Feng Shui, and sustainable practices. I often assist with blue print review for new house construction, and remodeling. Working with clients to review all aspects of their architectural design in the initial phases insures that the project will meet the long-range lifestyle needs as well as the client’s budget considerations.  Life transitions such as moving into a new home, marriage or divorce, downsizing after the children are grown or the blending of two young families into one house can be challenging experiences.  I can make the transition much smoother.  I balance the aesthetics of interior design with the attention to physical and emotional harmony that Feng Shui offers.  I often mediate color, furniture, and accessory choices for my clients, bringing years of design choices and “people skills” to my consultations.  My greatest joy is assisting people to improve the quality of their lives by improving the condition of their living environments.
