I’m Jenny Mitschelen, a veteran interior decorator who recently fulfilled her lifelong dream of living in Alabama. I’m mostly known for being crazy in love with Chris Mitschelen, Feisty Mama Bear to our three young adults and holding the fort down on the daily.
When I’m not out making personal spaces more lovely for my clients, I am typically in my home design studio, an arena that works overtime when it transforms into my personal fitness boutique. I can be found here getting creative or sweaty…..occasionally at the same time…most often with a cat underfoot or in my lap.
My wish is that you will visit me here often and be inspired to take excellent care of yourself and the most intimate spaces of your home.
Design & Me
I grew up before HGTV was a thing. My inspiration came from my mom. She was an artist and a meticulous homemaker with impeccable taste. She made everything beautiful whether she was working with a shoestring budget or indulging in custom furniture and draperies for our formal living room. What’s a formal living room, right? Our house was stylish, tidy and welcoming every day. I loved coming home to it….and to my mama.
I became Mrs. Chris Mitschelen at 19 & was swept into the lifestyle of a military wife. Lots of adventure, dearest friends and lots of MOVING. With each new home I had a fresh space to transform. This is how discovered my designer’s eye. Over the decades Chris & I continued to move around, buying, building or remodeling homes to fit the way we live. There was always a new project in my home or a friend’s.
Eventually, I didn’t have babies at home all day so I decided to stretch myself, get some formal training & buy a business with my husband. It has been a dream and a roller coaster. I own something I love & work with awesome people who keep me on my toes. The design industry is ever-changing. I get to train & sharpen my skills while being surrounded by some pretty great eye-candy…..the merchandise….not Chris….but he’s nice to look at too & the world’s greatest partner.
Together we have tackled client projects in Michigan, Indiana & Miami, Florida. The stylish bachelor’s abode, the empty-nester’s historic home transformation, luxury residences in steamy Miami & of course young families desiring kid-friendly spaces. It’s a labor of love serving great clients. I can’t wait to see what projects are on the horizon now that I can call myself a Huntsville Designer and the Tennessee Valley my permanent home.
The greatest part of my job is helping my busy clients reclaim their weekends as they discover the efficiency and pleasure of my fully in-home service. If you are ready to furnish your personal space in VIP comfort & style, contact me. I promise, I am the Real Deal & a hands-on professional….not design-in-a-box.
Your Suite Stylist
Why master suites? After many years in the this business I have found that these are my favorite spaces to transform. I am so excited to change directions & specialize in these most intimate rooms. I love designing custom bedding & helping my clients select special furnishings that perfectly fit the way they use their suite. The problem? I rarely get a chance to do this work. It is low on the priority list for too many homeowners. The areas seen and used by everyone else take priority while the most important room of the house is an after thought. Let’s change all that!
As a passionate advocate of wellness, I am unapologetically highmaintenance. I am a firm believer in creating space devoted to self-care and the most personal parts of our adult lives. Our greatest retreat should be the place we wake up in and return to every day. This is the sanctuary that supports the rhythm of our days and nights. Fill it with beautiful things you love, fill it with music, and make it strictly good vibes only.
Let’s go from ordinary bedrooms to The Suite Life!
