Launched in 2006, Jennifer Wagner Schmidt opened JWS Interiors after realizing her calling as an interior decorator. Focusing on high-end residential design, Jennifer’s design philosophy is to create timeless, beautiful, and practical spaces. Relying on the tenets of luxury and quality combined with a modern style honed over the years working with politicos, entrepreneurs, and business owners, she is able to translate great design into sophisticated interiors that reflect her clients’ lifestyles.
ELLE Decor, HGTV Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, and Veranda have all recognized her work. In 2015, Harper’s Bazaar named her an inspiring woman for its annual “Fabulous At Every Age” contest. In 2013, Home & Design named her one of the “Hot Talent” up-and-coming designers in the Washington, D.C. area. Jennifer has garnered a large social media following of more than 140,000 followers which allowed her to reach new clients, start partnerships and become a brand ambassador for powerhouse decor companies including Ralph Lauren Home, Z Gallerie, Stainmaster Carpet, and more. In 2016, a six-brand design collective–which included KitchenAid, Delta Faucet, and Schlage Locks–hired her to help design and renovate a Soho loft.
Jennifer prides herself on getting to know her clients and really listening to their wants and needs for a project. Clients remark how they appreciate her honesty in letting them know where to spend their money and where to save it.
