Jeanette Forney Van Wicklen
Since 2000, I've been an Interior Designer, just outside of Austin in Spicewood, Texas. Native Texan with roots back to the Alamo, but got my degree at the University of Oklahoma originally in Fashion Merchandising. Back in 2000, I became a Certified Interior Decorator after realizing that I loved all forms of design, but mostly interiors!
I primarily do E-Design these days but I continue to take a limited amount of "in home" consultations. I'm crazy about so many styles, but I always stay true to the classics, mixing in a bit of modern + vintage soul. My job is truly my passion and I enjoy making clients love their homes!
I believe your home should always be your sanctuary. My job is to figure out what you & your family love and how to make your home uniquely yours. I want you to love being at your home and surround you in furnishings that suit your budget and bring you joy. A great home also has to be welcoming, uncluttered, comfortable and have a cohesive flow to be peaceful. Together, I will show you how to achieve this feeling.
Furnishing vacation rental homes for clients is also one of my favorite projects! I've owned and operated several VRBO's, so I have the experience to help my clients furnish their places and get the most out of their investment. Lately I've been designing B & B interiors in the Fredericksburg area & Colorado, but happy to help you wherever you are located! E-Design works beautifully when furnishing a vacation rental. I send my clients a full design board online with shoppable links. They shop from the convenience of their computer and all furnishings are drop shipped directly to them. Makes for a fast set up after they close on their properties!
Married to the South Austin Dentist, and together we have remodeled or built 15 of our own homes (including our current Spicewood home and a Colorado vacation rental). We share the teamwork of renovating homes, spending time with family & pets, being in Colorado or bicycling the neighborhood. While he loves solo time riding motorcycle races or rides with friends, I'm probably sourcing decor or scouring a local antique or thrift store or house hunting. We also love large family meals at our home when the kids come "back to the nest" and each one of them shares their love of cooking in the kitchen and always with good music playing!
Proud Mom of 3 adult kids and "GiGi" to an 8 yr old Grandson. We also have a charming ole boy Labrador named Cooper and a sweet, adopted girl, Golden Retriever named Scout. They are my greatest gifts and truly what brings me the most joy.
I'm a passionate, service-oriented, and tech-savvy Interior Designer! I works from home office thanks to a great, supportive husband and my little design assistant, my daughter. When I'm not working, I'm usually watching a movie or dancing with my little girl!
I hold a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design, a Master's Degree in Visual Communication Design, and I'm in the process of completing a PhD in Strategic Media. I have 4 years of experience working with the top edesign platforms in managerial positions, managing over 100 clients at a time. Since I was a little girl I dreamed of being a designer and now I'm living that dream! My first introduction to 3D design was when I was 15 years old, my parents bought me a Chief Architecture Home Designer...well the rest is history. Interior Design and Visual communication are my passions!
