Relishing the Palm Beach Life—Jupiter Style
My roots are in Vero Beach, where I’ve spent most of my career working as an interior designer and construction project manager. It’s also where I raised my family. However, each time I traveled south to Palm Beach, I fell more and more in love with what was happening in the area.
The Palm Beaches are filled with growth, innovation, beauty and style. Benefitting from an influx of sophisticated transplants, the area commands a higher level of quality in architecture, technology and design innovation.
This truly piqued my interest professionally, so in 2017, I relocated myself and my company, Sutherland Design Group, Inc., to full time residency in Jupiter. I quickly discovered even more opportunities for creative solutions that residents and snowbirds alike were seeking: a new style that captured innovative ideas while preserving what made the Palm Beaches so special.
And that’s when I created Jupiter Home Style.
A New Way to Approach Interior Design
Jupiter Home Style promises to showcase how the area is inspiring my design eye and how I help clients realize better flow and design in and around their homes. What is even more exciting is how Jupiter Home Style promises to be a place where I bring even more value to more people by sharing the decor, technology and interior design elements I encounter in my travels and through client projects.
People will have access to new ideas as they consider their own remodel, redesign or new build. It’s a way for me to give more value on top of the work I enjoy doing for clients, and to share what I find that’s fun, creative and infused with the energy and vitality of the Palm Beaches.
This world is about helping each other and I love to help my clients to make their home more beautiful, functional and support the lifestyle they want.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why do I need a licensed interior designer?
A: Because you want the result that can only be provided by a licensed professional with extensive training and experience in construction project management and interior design. I have dedicated my career to helping people create that special look. By enlisting the help of a professional, you’ll save countless hours researching, shopping and trying to find the right complements for your home. A professional will have access to interior design resources and better pricing that a non-licensed designer would not. That’s a benefit to you and your project.
Q: How do you know if you’re working with a licensed residential interior design specialist?
A: Licensed interior designers should display their current state license ID number on their cards, advertising, websites and contracts. If you do not see this license number, ask if they are licensed and insured.
Q: Isn’t working with a licensed interior designer expensive?
A: Not necessarily. In fact, you’ll probably save more money by working with a design professional. You need to think of how much your time is worth to you, and working with a designer allows you to focus on what’s most important. In addition, licensed interior designers have access to professional resources, retailers, manufacturers and contractors. They have trusted relationships and can obtain additional savings through their established buying channels. You also eliminate risk by working with a trained, experienced and licensed professional who is responsible for their work and project outcomes.
Q: What about follow-up?
A: From the first conversation we have together through the entire project and afterward, your total satisfaction is our desired outcome. If you need anything from us after our project is complete, we are always here to be a resource to you and support you as you acclimate to your wonderful new home environment. Our goal is that we are your resource for as long as you need our help.
Q: Do I need to hire an interior designer if I only have one room I want redesigned?
A: There are many different kinds of interior designers; some will do small projects while others will only do new construction, and others find themselves somewhere in between. At Sutherland Design Group, our ideal project size includes total home renovation, remodel or new builds. However, we also do major room (living, dining, kitchen, master) space planning with complete furnishings and decor. Your best option is to schedule a free consultation to discuss your project and we will guide you to the best and most affordable solution so you can achieve the goals you want for your home.
