As soon as I met Jamie with Design Compass I knew she was the designer I wanted to work with to remodel my kitchen. There was an instant rapport. She is knowledgeable, has creative ideas, a great listener, very efficient with our time, and super easy and enjoyable to work with. She takes the time to fully understand your style preferences and does everything she can to make your dream design come true. Jamie gets just as excited about our remodel as I do! She is fair, honest, and very hard working. When I do phase 2 of my remodel, it will be Design Compass that I call.

I currently worked with Jamie on my home remodel. She always responded very quickly to my calls and questions. Her recommendations were always spot on. She wanted to know what was important not only to me but also to my husband. Jamie would make great suggestions and inform me of what to look for in my kitchen setup. She took the time to help me out when I was ordering my cabinets. She checked over my plans to make sure we had all of the necessary storage covered. She had good perspective and really listened to my needs. She was like a great team mate working with us to make sure we got everything we needed and wanted.

I love working with Jamie! I had been wanting to refresh my home for a long time but being a single mom with 2 teenagers in the house, it was an overwhelming project to start. Jamie was the perfect partner to help me figure out all the who, what, when and how's. She introduced me to great organizers and contractors to get things going. I appreciated her patience and creative expertise when working through the many design decisions for my family room, living room and kitchen. Jamie is truly dedicated to helping you create a space that you will love and enjoy.

Five Stars. What does it mean? Who deserves it? And Why is Jamie worth it?
Professionals main job is to be completely knowledgeable about their profession, understand their client's needs and then use their judgment to offer a service that is well balanced.
My wife and I built our dream house, and we were not prepared for the amount decisions we need to make. The appliances, the floors, the cabinets, the sinks, mirrors, stones, none of these we knew to make a choice.
Met Jamie as a friend in Rotary, she stepped in knowing our discomfort, educated and guided us, and we made selections together we are very happy about. Our friends who visit our place love it.
A year after she worked for us, we are still friends!!!!
If you have never built a home before, or have not done remodeling, hire someone like her. You will save a lot of money on the project. I know we did.
I have recommended her to my friends, and would do anyone who wants good service.
-- Venkatesh T., San Jose
Attractive, practical advice on all aspects of furnishing and structure remodeling, good product sourcing ideas and contacts, worked to keep in budget putting the investments in the right places.
-- Chris D, Santa Cruz
Need direction for your home update, but your spouse has other ideas? Walk through your home, like my husband and I did, with Jamie. She will listen to both of you, then give you the reality of what you both want, and suggest some things that will work for both of you. She is quite good at getting everyone on the same page.
Start your update/remodeling project with an agreed-upon plan. Hire Jamie.

Colleen - We did a complete remodel of our living area. It consisted of removing walls and moving the kitchen from one end of the house to the other.
We spoke to other designers, but didn't feel a connection. I contacted Jamie after reading her reviews on Houzz. We already had our plans, but were crippled by the task of picking out materials. We described our taste to Jamie as Rustic meets Tuscan. Our first outing with Jamie we were able to pick our granite and had a great start on the materials we wanted for our backsplash.
When it came time to pick out cabinets we took a couple of floor samples to the cabinet maker and Jamie helped us match our flooring to the wood cabinets we wanted.
Shopping for furniture was something else we were dreading. Jamie went shopping with us and kept us moving, we were able to pick most our furniture in one afternoon .
Jamie was always available to us whether it be by phone, text or e-mail. Working with Jamie became more like working with a friend than a designer. She kept us on track and focused. We thoroughly enjoyed the relationship we built and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again
Gary- Jamie kept us focused and helped explain what we needed to do to bring our materials and colors together. She is a one stop shop! From start to finish she worked with us on keeping true to our style, while helping us push our comfort zone just enough to add a bit of style to our remodel.
-- Colleen and Gary G, San Jose
We parted ways with our previous designer before we had all our selections complete. My wife and I knew what we wanted and we wanted reassurance that our choices would work. Mid-way through our remodel Jamie helped us in our choice of tile. Next she helped use finalize our choice of paint colors. Our living room has a stone faced fireplace and we wanted a color to complement it and the hardwood floor. She blew us away with the color. We love it!!!
Beyond her expertise my wife and I had so much fun working with Jamie. Warm and friendly and knew when to challenge us so we'd end up with a better solution.

When my contractor said he could start my job within 1 week AND I had chosen NO materials yet, I called Jamie. This was a complete double bathroom remodel down to the studs.
Jamie jumped in, meeting with me & the contractor. She asked questions and made suggestions I hadn't thought of in my haste to get things going. She immediately got me shopping for the crucial materials, knowing where to go, what to include, and helping me along the way to narrow down my choice selection.
While Jamie guided the process of selection/choices, she skillfully listened to my preferences and was able to translate that into MY vision for these bathrooms - NOT HERS. She kept me on-track and focused on what needed to be done and when.
Jamie made a challenging situation much more endurable. She was pleasant to work with and always responded in a timely manner. She followed through, doing what she said she would do, when she said she would do it. She was a helpful sounding board for my ideas.
-- Paula S, San Jose
I can't imagine how I would have gotten through this project without her. I do unreservedly recommend her and her services.
Jamie is an amazing designer! She gives you her full attention and isn't afraid to tell when something won't really work. She is a calm force when you are a stormy mess trying to figure things out! Working with her on our kitchen has been a dream!
-- Heidi and Jon M, Campbell
Although I have extensive experience in construction management and contracting, I don't know much about interior design, and if something I chose looks good, I got lucky. I mentioned my shortcomings to my contractor, who recommended Jamie as a designer who could help. Jamie turned out to be easy to work with and very knowledgeable, and beyond the basics of choosing paint colors and the like, she helped me choose countertops, backsplash tile, pendant lights, door pulls and knobs, you name it, and also educated me on things I never would have thought of in kitchen design, as well as added some of her design touches to the design that classed the place up beyond what I would have imagined. I recommend Jamie for help in your kitchen design, and interior design in general, and the earlier you engage her on a project the more benefit you'll get, plus you'll stay ahead of your contractor, always a good thing to keep schedules tight and costs within budget.
-- Steve R, San Jose
Jamie was indispensable with our kitchen remodel. She listened to what we were thinking, and then gave us several options and suggestions that made the project come together perfectly. The project was done on budget and all of her contacts were very professional as well. We would highly recommend her.
-- Sandra and Scott E., San Jose
Jamie has helped me with designing most rooms in my house, as well as assisting me with selections for my new kitchen remodel. Jamie is an amazing interior designer, who takes into account all aspects of your house, from colors and style, to how the flow and layout works for you personally. And she makes the process so easy and painless. She helped me think about things I would never have thought of, even down to the smallest detail. I absolutely love how she has transformed my house to be so representative of my personality. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
-- Kristina B., Burlingame
Jamie has provided an invaluable service to help us make the best use of our space and fine-tune our plans while still in the blueprint phase. She has been the perfect liaison between us and our architect.
— Lindy D., Los Altos
We asked Jamie to help us with furniture and decor selection for a beach home using the existing color palette and finish materials. She did an excellent job overall from furniture layout, furniture sourcing, color guidance and recommending decor websites. The result was very comfortable, not overly beach themed and perfect for family and friends gathering. She was very reasonable, willing to help us vet pieces we found and provided good input on future kitchen and bath remodeling plans. Easy to work with too. We will use her again as remodeling plans progress.
-- Chris and Celeste D., Santa Cruz
It has been great working with Jamie Price of Design Compass. When I moved into a condo I was ready to remodel. I had ideas and picked out some basics for the kitchen and bath but was not sure how to put it all together. Jamie listened to what I wanted, was fun to be with, and helped create a beautiful home that feels 100% mine. She blends style and comfort with a great sense of color and design. She is generous with her time and makes you feel like you are her only client. From living room, kitchen, bedroom, office to furniture and accessories she has great ideas that make each room special but never loses the sense of the balance and beauty of the entire home. She made an overwhelming project doable, was aware of finances and always checked things out. I love our new home and would recommend Jamie to help anyone create their special home with any project large or small.
-- Candy and Jim S., San Jose
From point A to Point B, Jamie's expertise and keen sense of style was evident. Her professionalism mixed with a warmth made working with Jamie a delight. Shopping and picking items together while coaching me about what would go around the pieces that we tied in the colors and style was both fun and educational. She used favorite items I had and worked with me to keep within the budget. I highly recommend Jamie. I will definitely use her again!
-- Trudy G, Saratoga
Jamie did our tasting room design for our winery in Los Gatos. She was very professional and came up with fantastic ideas. We receive many complements on our design and color choices.
-- Richard H., Los Gatos
Jamie has done design work for us over the past 15 years. We're so pleased with the entire process of re-design and design. She has created harmony in our lives by bringing styles into our home through personal color selection, functional furniture placement and creative arrangements for our artwork and accessories. She worked with our existing furniture but also included additional furniture and decorating items to give our home the "wow" factor!
Jamie goes through concerns, function, lighting, color, budget all before the project is started. She pays special attention to fine details that other wise would be over looked. She has selected colors and furniture that have transformed our space into one that has warmth, color and function. She is a pro at capturing the moods and colors that make our house interior inviting.
-- Linda S., Cupertino
I hired Design Compass to consult with me regarding my living room redecorating project January, 2016. Jamie came to my home and I walked her through my thoughts and ideas for my space. She gave me advice and recommendations about placement of furniture, size of art work and rugs, where to shop for new pieces and I even called her from the store when I had to decide between a couple of chairs and fabric swatches.
Jamie was always prompt and came prepared listen to my ideas and helped me put together my dream living room.
-- Tammy S., Sunnyvale
Thank you Jamie for helping us turn our vision into reality!
We could not be happier with the experience we had working with Jamie as she helped us transform our lackluster office space into a warm, welcoming, yet professional technology center.
One of the best things about Jamie is that she really listens to her clients and knows what questions to ask to make the most out of every meeting. She spent a great deal of time getting to know us and the services we provide to the community, carefully listening to our vision and goals for our tech center. Jamie quickly researched many options for us and offered creative ideas and suggestions, from paint color to furnishings to wall décor, all the while respecting our budget and never pushing her ideas. In a very collaborative way she guided our vision and goals towards appropriate design selections with the end result being a cohesive, functional, and inviting tech center that we couldn’t be more proud of!
It was a wonderful experience working with Jamie. Not only are her design skills top-notch but she is a very kind, warm-hearted individual who made the whole process, from start to finish, pleasant and enjoyable. We are so excited to show off our beautiful new space to our clients. If you are considering a redecorating or remodeling project, don’t hesitate to contact Jamie for help and guidance– she is simply the BEST! Thank you, Jamie!!

I am impressed with Jamie’s talent and knowledge. I knew the things in our house needed to be arranged differently, but just wasn’t sure how to go about it.
Jamie made recommendations that immediately improved the look of our downstairs (living room, family room, dining room, entryway, and guest bathroom). She has a talent for reworking existing furniture, paintings and accessories to create a new and finished look. She obviously loves her work and is very dedicated. She even stopped by a couple of times, just to tell me about an idea she thought of for our house!
— Susan S., Los Altos
“I finally love to sit in my living room. Jamie, you were amazing at rearranging the furniture. It is so much more inviting and functional… Thank you so much – I cannot tell you how often I have wanted a person of your expertise to come in and help me with that room.”
— Lori P., Denver
“Unlike many professional interior designers, Jamie does not work with people in a stuffy and judgmental manner. She treated me as a friend, providing just the right amount of suggestions and opinions to lead me to decisions my family and I were comfortable with, working with the things we already had in our home.”
— Kathy A., Los Altos
“After purchasing new furniture and rug for my living/family room, I had an end result that I did not like and I felt like I had failed in my attempt to create a cozy, comfortable room. I spent my time apologizing to friends who came to visit and just wrote it off as a very expensive mistake.
I hired Jamie. After analyzing the placement of furniture, she made changes that day that totally transformed the room. She incorporated objects from other areas of my house to create a personal, warm feeling. Jamie didn’t try to change my personal style or push me in a direction that I wasn’t comfortable with implementing. She made great suggestions and I now have a beautiful room that I’m proud to have people visit”
