Renee remembers the first time interiors became important. She was 13 and REALLY wanted to remodel her bedroom.
Her dilemma: frilly canopy bed with white lace or cool bunk beds for sleepovers? In the end, it was the ultra-feminine canopy bed with deep blue walls and white wicker furniture.
Her aesthetic may have changed over the years, but the creative foundation was deeply embedded. Today, rich organic texture with strong lines of contour and comfort is her trademark. With over 14 years of industry experience, her goal is to create interiors that are warm and modern with immediate impact.
With years of formal education and a background in housing design and construction, fine arts, graphic design, and publishing, Jill joined the EWF Modern design team in 2007.
Since then she has guided many clients to shape their distinct aesthetic into modern, expressive, personal, and enduring spaces. Jill particularly enjoys the challenge of space planning and specifying furnishings from the EWF Modern collections. Fun fact: Jill designed, hand-built from the ground up, and furnished a small modern mountain home located 60 miles north of Yellowstone Park.
Helen is an illimitably imaginative problem solver with collaboration in her DNA.
Given her background in art and design, her approach considers the five senses because places and spaces are more than aesthetics, they’re experiences.
Helen believes that interior design and home furnishings are all about relationships and face many of the same challenges as them – they need to work independently and cooperatively, fill voids while offering value, and ideally last through the tests of time. Some of her favorite color combinations are inspired by nature and she values environmentally conscious efforts.
