Having never lost her dream, she now works with Artichoke Interiors creating real life floor plans, bringing concepts to life for her clients.

I have been working with Dawn Jacobs for a number of years and I have never encountered another interior designer that is more competent, creative, professional and customer satisfaction oriented.

I enjoy Dawn's honesty, integrity and willingness to go the extra mile when working.

  5. We hired Dawn several years ago to re-do one room and haven't let her go yet. She has done several rooms in our house including our "Tuscan style" lower level and we love it all! Dawn just finished remodeling my husbands office building. Dawn is the best! A lot of fun and easy to work with.

  6. We wanted to make a few "minor" changes to areas of our home and felt overwhelmed by choices. We were so pleased with her charming personality and enthusiasm in coordinating our initial remodeling projects that we asked her to develop a plan for every room in our home from just paint and accessories to entire room renovations we can do over time. You will absolutely enjoy working with Dawn!!!

  10. I have been working with Dawn from Artichoke Interiors for years. I originally met her when I noticed really cute baby room displays in her store. I was looking for design advice for my two girls' bedrooms, and she helped me to create a girl's glamor suite. Since that time, I continue to work with her for paint colors, furniture selection, home accessories, rug advice, etc. I plan to finish my basement soon, and will again turn to her for design advice.

Recently I worked with them again for decorating expertise on my entire first floor of our home and doing drapery in my living room.
