What our clients say

WCI is the largest builder of golf course communities on the east coast. We are always looking for that special designer to make us unique from all the other builders. Design Theory Interiors provides that special feel and look we want while working within the tight budget and completion restraints that were imposed. Everyone is thrilled at the results.

Steve Howard, Dir. of Construction, Amenity Division WCI Communities

I liked Design Theory Interiors’ fresh approach to club design that didn’t appear “cookie cutter” . . .it looks great and functions well. Jamie listened to what we wanted/needed and learned about our market. I have complete confidence in her decisions and trust her judgment. I am currently working with Design Theory Interiors again on a club remodel – we didn’t even solicit any other bids.

Julie Frazier, St. James Plantation

I spent 18 months designing our home and 12 months building it. I wanted the interior to reflect the quality of the home. I wanted it to be special. We love everything about the job. The finishes, furniture and colors are so beautiful and so perfect for the home. Design Theory Interiors will not disappoint.

Bill Kring, Homeowner

We were especially pleased with Jamie’s willingness to listen to our goals and vision for the room. We really felt that she was helping us complete OUR project and not putting something together that had been pre-conceived. I am 100% sure that we received tremendous value for our investment in services provided by Jamie Kern and Design Theory Interiors and would wholeheartedly recommend Jamie to anyone considering doing a project.

Phil Verstraete, Homeowner

Jamie has designed 5 rooms in our house, and we love every one of them. Her eye for design is amazing. Her knowledge about paint colors, heights of ceiling light fixtures, proper furniture layout, etc. was incredible. Her positive attitude and flexibility were great! She was able to meet our budget and was very timely with emails. Jamie went above and beyond with our project, and we are so glad we used her services. You won’t regret it!!
