It recognizes that our needs change as our lives evolve, and it allows flexibility for changes. It is beautiful, practical, functions well, and is pleasing to you, the client.
I am an Interior Designer because I have been mesmerized by light, colors, pattern, texture, fabric, and art work my entire life. My passion for all these elements is evident when I work with clients. I love what I do and that passion makes my job fun and exciting. The benefit to you is that you work with a designer who is excited about the possibilities of each and every project who will strive to make the process fun as well as successful.
When it comes to decorating a home, there may be many design challenges. I can identify with many of your challenges because I have lived with them too. I’ve raised a family and dealt with storage issues, puppies, teenagers, downsizing and accessibility issues. I know what makes a household run smoothly and how good design contributes to a manageable home.
I earned a degree in Studio Art from UNC-Chapel Hill and continued my Interior Design education at Paier College of Art. I am an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers as well as a member of the Connecticut chapter of ASID. Whether it is space planning or finding just the right shade of paint, I will work tirelessly to create a beautiful and practical space that works for you.
I called on Judy Cook for a design consultation and ended up hiring her for my project. I needed to redesign a comfortable living room for my senior mother to use. It required placing her lift armchair and allowing space for her walker yet not making it look like a senior center. I also wanted to incorporate a light nautical theme to the space. Judy came up with some excellent choices and ordered custom pieces. She was there for the delivery and set up and did all the finishing touches herself. We love it. Judy is a professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend her.
Judy helped us to renew our master bedroom and bathroom. She understood the scope of the job (in terms of cost and our attention span) and provided us with great ideas and appropriate samples for tub surround material, wall and floor tiles, wall paint colors, draperies, and carpeting. The overall effect is harmonious and elegant – just what I wanted. Moreover, she kept us on track. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
I am so grateful to Judy for coordinating the decorative elements of our open kitchen, dining, family space. Judy was just so easy to work with. She has wonderful ideas, great taste and was happy to include some of our family pieces and antiques into the new scheme. Judy understands what makes a room feel comfortable and inviting, I am so happy with how the space turned out. It’s beautiful, and the style and function fit us perfectly. I look forward to working with Judy on other spaces in our new house.
Working with Judy to redesign my living room was a wonderful experience. Judy was able to pull the whole room together and was able to complete the project within a very limited time frame and budget. Judy has a wealth of knowledge, resources and an ability to understand what her clients are looking for.
I love my warm, cozy sunroom. Judy took things I already had and brought them all together so beautifully. She is such a cheerful and patient person to work with and has so many wonderful resources to help in getting your room all together.
Judy was able to interpret my very general vision into a practical plan and had great ideas regarding colors and textures. She works with great people to provide specialized work and ensures that everything gets done in a timely manner.
Judy provided to us a beautiful design plan that included several options for furniture, layout, furniture pieces, fabric and rug options. The plans arrived beautifully packaged and it was so much fun looking through everything. She was always available by email or phone. It was everything that we wanted and it could not have happened without Judy’s professionalism, guidance, and talent.
The ideas binder you created was helpful as I continually referred to it as I implemented different elements of the project. I am pleased that you threw yourself into this project and were so forthcoming with your straightforward and insightful comments. Thanks in large part to your input I have turned my house into a home.
Judy was great to work with. I didn’t have time to do much time to do much legwork and she did it all. I told her what I was looking for and she delivered. Her suggestions along the way made the finished product better than what I expected. I would highly recommend her for any job, big or small!
I engaged JCI to redecorate my living room and dining room. She listened to my design preferences and transformed them into a design and led the purchasing and kept me informed at every step. She offered options along the way and used her extensive contacts and merchants to round out the design. She brought me along on shopping trips to refine the final selections. Overall a great experience and I would enthusiastically recommend JCI for future work.
Judy did an excellent job in assisting me to select window & floor treatments and furniture for my new home. She is knowledgeable and works well within a budget in a timely fashion. Judy is also an excellent resource for other professionals that may be needed to complete the project. She is a delight to work with! Judy follows up after a visit and gives a good synopsis of what was discussed. Judy is also readily accessible and always returns phone calls or e-mails. She is a great listener and respectful of your ideas. She was able to completely captured what I had envisioned for my rooms! I highly recommend her for any interior design projects either large or small
Bravo, Judy! Our kitchen is beautiful and functional, everyone who visits complements the new room. We gutted our kitchen to the drywall and had many decisions that needed to be made. We are not very decisive, nor familiar with products and options for a kitchen. Judy walked us through every step and had great information about available options. She provided us with photos, websites, samples, and went with us to stores to see cabinets, flooring, appliances, lighting, hardware – all of it. She helped us narrow down the options, and when the time came, nudged us as needed to make decisions. She worked well with our contractor, and everything was done on time. We have already recommended her to our friends.
I hired Judy Cook to help me re-decorate my living room. I can honestly say she has a knack for designing a space that is comfortable and visually stimulating. From the first meeting Judy worked with me to understand my tastes and styles. She was always patient and presented different options. She has a creative sense to mix and match details and colors. Her style is sophisticated yet practical in use. I would highly recommend Judy to anyone.
Judy has been a great resource as we rehab our home that was previously a horse barn. She has kept us on track with our design concept when we’ve felt overwhelmed with choices. We’ve been really pleased with her suggestions, urgings and resources for colors, floor plans, furniture and finishes. Judy is very personable, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, dependable, with a keen sense of style and we look forward to continuing our relationship as the project evolves.
We hired Judy Cook Interiors, LLC during the process of building our home. Both my husband and I were working full time plus and did not have the time to drive to Eastern CT during the week to monitor the process. Judy was a great help during that process and often intervened at the job site; for example, in the master bathroom she worked with the tiler to insert storage needed in the shower. After moving into the home, as we were new to the area opened doors to purchase items such as rugs and guided us through the design process of several key rooms to include both offices and the master bedroom. Judy was comfortable with the construction team and they with her.
We built a new house and our architect recommended Judy Cook Interiors. This was an excellent choice for us. Judy offered nice wall color selections for rooms in the house as well as furniture suggestions and arrangements for the living and dining rooms. She identified fabric choices for the living room furniture and did an excellent job in matching colors and styles. The living room has a very inviting and comfortable feel to it! Judy is also well networked in the area with many local contacts to measure windows and install blinds or curtains, build custom frames for mirrors, backsplash design and tile selections, and re-upholstering. Judy is very knowledgeable and diligent in getting things done. She is flexible with her schedule and follows up on all work thoroughly. Judy has a professional attitude and gets to know the client’s personal preferences. I have been very pleased with Judy’s work and would highly recommend her to others.
