Professional Interior Designers

Our Team

A note from jh herself:

Twenty years ago when mapping out a plan for my future, I never imagined it looking as it does now! After a BME degree from The University of Kansas, design school in Nashville, and an interior design degree from MCC here in Omaha, jh Interior Design was officially started in 2007! As a one person company, I set out to conquer the design world from my basement!

Soon after, Rachael Cavanaugh joined the firm and has become an integral member of the company where she now holds the role of Vice President. We have since continued to grow and have worked with well over 800 clients on various types of projects around the country. As a person who likes new ventures and a challenge, I could not help but open another business in 2014: a full service floral design studio named bouquet. We are creating unique and gorgeous floral designs all around Omaha! Flowers are a natural extension of interior design, and the two businesses marry so well together. As of 2020 we officially share a studio in Clocktower Village. Come see the way fresh floral and interior design pair together so beautifully!

To date at jh Interior Design, we have 7 designers on board and recently expanded, for the 5th time, into a new studio featuring an unreal shopping boutique and design offices! I am so inspired and grateful each day when I walk in here, it rarely feels like I am going to work. I thought about what makes us unique. . . we work hard, and we have fun! We keep things in perspective and stay positive. We deliver exceptional customer service and follow through for our clients. We treat people with respect and create stunning atmospheres for them to live and work in! We love what we do, and it shows!

We will celebrate 13 years this summer, and I could not be more proud of the design work we have produced in the Omaha area and in cities around the country. I am so fortunate to not only have an extremely supportive family, but also an incredibly talented team of designers at both jh Interior Design and bouquet. Each of them bring unique and amazing gifts to the table each and every day!

I can’t wait to see what the future holds. . . full speed ahead, here we come!
