Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because the best feeling in the world is to help someone achieve a dream, and the second best feeling in the world is seeing something that you envisioned and designed become real and tangible. Interior Design combines both of these.

We started in this industry in 2014.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Review by in Bethany, CT
Jonathan had good insight on unconventional problems which really helped with our project. Older homes always have little surprises which thinking with an experienced eye really helped.

Review by in Simsbury, CT
As first time suburban homeowners whose previous home was a small apartment in New York City, we knew immediately that we would need help decorating. I reached out to Design by Jonathans online and heard back from them instantly. Our first phone discussion left me knowledgeable about the process and how we would work together. I was feeling overwhelmed with having several empty rooms - no furniture, no rugs, nothing but Jonathan reassured me that he would lead us through the process step by step. And that's what they did! Brilliant, humorous, talented, patient, trustworthy, flexible are all adjectives I'd use to describe Jonathan during the time spent with him. He went above and beyond - answering texts about bar stools, patiently scrolling long internet pages to find the perfect pillows/rugs/wall hangings and answering every email promptly. He was always on time for our appointments and was always prepared. I think he was great at finding pieces that both appealed to what my husband and I both liked. I'm sure this isn't an easy task. He was filled with lots of great advice and we trusted him when he said 'If you don't love it now, you won't like it later. Let's keep looking.' We would have been lost without him. We have some beautiful spaces in our new home thanks to his hard work and keen eye. I can't recommend him enough. He also is talented in the lighting / audio space as well as it was his suggestion we add several more ceiling lights to the dark living room. Wow, what a difference. He respected our budget as well and never pushed us. I'm thankful for the experience and have received so many compliments on our new home.

Review by in Milford, CT
You cannot go wrong using Jonathan. I have used at least 3 interior decorators over the past 10 years and what set Jonathan apart from the others was his ability to really "see" my vision of the space and THEN expand upon my vision with ideas of his own that were completely in alignment with what I wanted. At our first meeting I found myself saying, "YES!" to almost everything he suggested. He is truly a master in design ideas. I absolutely love my space. He helped me design my living room/office, kitchen and dining room in my condo. My place is now completely unique from my complementary paint colors, to the chandelier in my office space, to the stainless steel highlighting my gas fireplace, to my tin ceilings, to my custom handmade walnut coffee table, to my custom dining table from Turkey! Jonathan also designed my lighting in every room . Even my Kitchen has bling (which I love!) and tons of light so I can see what I am cooking now. I have fantastic rope lighting in a recessed tray ceiling in my living room and super cool track lighting in my dining room. He is a genius in design. If you want something truly fantastic and unique, call Jonathan, you will not be disappointed.

Review by in Beacon Falls, CT
My husband and I brought our home almost 10 years ago and completed several projects but then stalled. I suffered 9+ years with a poorly designed master bathroom. On a whim I started looking for Interior Decorators and found Jonathan. The process to redo a bathroom was overwhelming at times but Jonathan was there to reassure us all would turn out fine. Somehow he was able to combine the needs of both my husband and I to produce a master bathroom that we both love. We have several other projects that we wish to complete and I have no doubt they will come out as we envision with his expert help and organization skills. I would highly recommend Jonathan.

Review by in Madison, CT
I had never used an interior decorator either locally or through home advisor so I did not know what to expect. Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. He is well organized and manages time very well. He is working with us on our living room and dining room...furnishings and decor from scratch. We are so very pleased with the results and would highly recommend Jonathan.

Review by in Fairfield, CT
Jonathan's step by step approach took an overwhelming (to me) project and made it easy. The contractors he found to complete the work were fantastic and the end product is perfect. From the start, he proved his listening skills and never pushed his vision but focused on mine. Shopping for furniture and design accessories was a pleasure - there again he was focused on what I liked and envisioned versus his "design plan." The redesigned family room is exactly what we were looking for - and better due to his knowledge and finesse. We would definitely use him again and recommend him highly.

Review by in Bristol, CT
If I could give a rate above an "A" Jonathan would truly get it! I have never met anyone so professional, so dedicated and so knowledgeable in what they do. It was an honor to work with him. Not only did Jonathan address our concerns about adding a garage and porch and maybe an update to our kitchen, he pointed out to my husband and I that both our ideas could work for the redesign project. I cannot praise Jonathan enough! Thank you Jonathan!

It was a pleasure working with Jonathan. He took the pain out of the process and made it so easy to work with him. His recommendations were spot-on and we are so happy with the outcome. The bathrooms look amazing. We would use him again for any design project in a heartbeat!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
