Our Firm

Janine Dowling Design is a full-service residential interior design firm specializing in interior decorating projects and architectural renovations. We primarily work in Boston and the surrounding suburbs, as well as on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. In addition, we have projects throughout New England and in Southern Florida.

Our design services include space planning, furniture and fabric selection, accessories and artwork selection, lighting selection, color consultations, and architectural materials selection. Our projects range in size from one-room redesigns to whole-house customizations. We always look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with architects, vendors, and industry specialists no matter the size of the job.

How we work

Our mission at Janine Dowling Design is to create spaces for individuals and families that are reflective of their lifestyles and personalities. Each design statement for our clients is a unique expression of who they are. Whenever possible, we look for sustainable solutions that are long-lasting, beautiful, and gentle on the earth.

Our approach is highly collaborative. We work with our clients to create a shared vision of their space and not impose a look that one can find in any magazine. This means that each of our client’s homes, offices and public spaces are distinctive. We work consistently with our clients through an initial envisioning process to tease out the look that speaks to them. It’s important to us for our clients to have a feel of their space before we begin. We love when our clients are as engaged in their new look as we are. Then we use our design experience and industry knowledge to develop the details of that shared vision. Collaboration, communication and teamwork are the foundations of the design process with our clients.

While there are many design companies out there, it’s important for you to know that all design firms are not created equal.

This may also include other professionals such as electricians and plumbers. The cost could be tens of thousands of dollars once they are done, but it depends on how big the project is.

What Do Professionals Designers Actually Do For You?

Professional interior designers understand how to reshape your home. They can take your existing rooms and transform your experience of your physical surroundings. They understand how to use space effectively, and based upon the type of furniture that you have and the furniture that you would like to own, they can draw blueprints on what these changes will be.
