Today we’d like to introduce you to Jasmin Reese.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I originally started out as a fine arts painter and supported myself working at a high-end furnishing store in Rhode Island. From there, I worked at some lighting showrooms and went to school for interior design. Moved to Chicago in 2008, started my first design business with a partner in 2010, branched off on my own in 2014. I learned a lot about construction working for a developer from 2010-2014. I’m constantly trying to learn about processes and new materials. I go to the furniture market every Fall to find a product.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
You meet a lot of interesting people – some clients can be pretty tough – see the project through to the end to build your portfolio and gain experience.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Jasmin Reese Interiors – what should we know?
I love bold stylish interiors that are still traditional and try to incorporate that into my interiors. I also love the wallpaper on the ceiling!
My office also serves as a storefront with POSH Pillow bar – you can create your own bespoke pillow with designer fabrics.
My firm also creates a very organized remodel packet for every job with specification sheets, drawings of each wall, schedules of each project and contact numbers because I like my sleep in the morning and like for information to be readily available!
Do you recommend any apps, books or podcasts that have been helpful to you?
Seems silly but I love to watch Upworthy.com almost every day. Success stories of people helping each other and animals balance my stress and help me to understand any difficult situation.
