Jen Ferrel

Hi, I’m Jen Ferrell.   Wife to Matt, Mom to Everlyn and Penny. I’ve lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado since 2007. Our family loves outdoor adventures, camping, hiking and skiing. We love to travel both domestically and internationally and introduce our girls to all of the beauty that our very own state, and this world holds!

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Chandler, Arizona (a suburb of the greater Phoenix area). I spent most of my childhood and teenage years in a pool (no exaggeration), but fell in love with mountains and multiple seasons when I went to college at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. I’m now a mountain girl through and through, but I’ve learned to appreciate the beauty of the Desert Southwest more and more every time I return.

 

What got you into design?

Looking back, I’ve always been aware of the look and feel of the environments that I was in, even from a young age. That interest grew into a full-fledged hobby in my early 20’s once I had my own home to decorate. Later, friends began asking me for help and advice to create warm and inviting spaces in their own homes. This eventually led me to start my own interior design business, and then to work with Maple & Moss as a stager and designer. My own goal to ensure that Interior Design is accessible to all budgets aligns so well with Maple & Moss’ vision. I love working for a company and with a team that works so hard to listen to our clients and partner with them to create spaces that will be loved, enjoyed and shared!

 

You as a Designer | What drives your design decisions?

My highest priority as a designer is to help my clients achieve a space that they enjoy and want to share with others, while respecting their personal styles and budget. I never want a client to end up with a space that doesn’t feel welcoming to them or reflect their tastes and lifestyle.

What are some of your biggest inspirations?

I’m inspired by so much of the world around me, and can usually see beauty in nearly any environment. I’m particularly inspired by pieces with history and story, such as family heirlooms or mementos from travel. I love furnishings and decor that tell a story and invite conversation.

What are you most proud of in your portfolio?

I’m most proud of the spaces I’ve been able to work on for friends and family. It reminds me that they have trusted me with their own homes - a deeply personal thing, and that our relationships have withstood the stress of remodels, redesigns and renovations! I’m always humbled by the opportunity to step into anyone’s home and be trusted to help them visualize the possibilities and achieve that vision.

How will you present your design concept and ideas?

One thing I love about the Maple & Moss process are the multiple touch points and visuals that we as designers have with and give to our clients. We want to make the process less intimidating and ensure that each client can visualize their space coming together as we move forward with each step of the design. This means I connect via video calls and emails, and present concepts as visually as possible with 3D Renderings, Mood Boards and any additional sketches that will help the client implement the design. I also love to utilize video messages which give me the opportunity to talk through the design and gives the client the added convenience of watching the video at their availability, and rewatching as necessary.

What can clients expect when working with you?

Clients can expect me to listen to their specific goals, desires and requirements, and to keep all of those things in mind as I develop the design. I want to encourage new concepts and designs, but I also want the client’s thoughts to be honored and for them to feel comfortable with the final product. I work hard to communicate in a timely manner, within business hours, and to maintain the agreed upon timeline we’ve established for the project. I am a very detailed person, so clients can also expect that I will ask a lot of specific questions throughout the process to ensure that I understand the functionality of the space.
