Arizona's J&J Design Group Brings Relaxed Sophistication to Transitional Interiors

One technique that gives interior designs a unified look is the addition of themes or motifs that permeate a home. Arizona interior design firm J&J Design Group know this well. The firm, comprised of Jennifer O’Dowd and Joanna Gick, designs transitional interiors that are frequently described as sophisticated and inviting. In 2010, after working as colleagues for a period of time, the two decided to go for their dreams and start their own venture – now known as J&J Design Group. The team’s unique talents and tastes results in the fusion of design elements ranging from bold patterns and architectural details to natural elements. A theme of color and pattern is imbued throughout the space, and the gorgeous end result can span from a “modern cottage” aesthetic to casual contemporary – all of which are custom-tailored designs that withstand the test of time.

Each of J&J Design Group’s creations exude a warm, stylish ambiance, and their dedication to quality design does not go unnoticed. We are delighted to present the firm with the Design Shuffle Top 10 of 2013 Award! Discover their timeless style below as you browse through the Chandler Residence in Arizona:
