What our clients have to say
"You won't find another design+build management firm for your project that is more dedicated than Studio 818."
"We had a huge remodel project in Harbor Beach, Fort Lauderdale that had gone South due to disorganization from another design firm. Janie and her team came in and saved the day!"
I highly recommend Janie and Studio 818 - we couldn't have made our dream home without her. Communication is very important to me when working with someone and Janie made sure she was in touch about upcoming timelines, decisions that had to be made and any troubleshooting.
Studio 818 you guys are the best! Words can not express how happy I am with my 818 home. My life is forever changed and my 2124 Dreamlodge is truly my dream home!! Janie, JP and Studio 818 make dreams come true.
My gorgeous new kitchen with 15-foot island puts my last kitchen in New York to shame. I'm retired now and absolutely love cooking and entertaining in this fabulous home. JP and Janie are a great find for a modern well-done design and renovation of a 1960's house.
Mike & Chrystine Dimaguila
Janie has the best creative eye for any space & style. All our friends always ask how we came up with design and they love it. We use Studio 818 for every home and commercial project and recommend her to all our friends.
The interior design by Janie (Studio 818) hit all of my wife's high-design Pinterest saves -- materials, form and function, the attention to detail -- absolutely outstanding!
In a nutshell, Janie's design aesthetic is a perfect mix of superior use of space, eclectic design and sophisticated details. Four years later and we still could not be happier today.
"Outstanding taste and professionalism! Everyone who visits loves the look and feel of the house. I hIghly recommend Janie at Studio 818!"
