Jessica Helgerson has more than fifteen years experience designing residential and commercial interiors. Though her interiors are typically clean and uncluttered, she is comfortable working in a variety of styles, guided by her clients’ individual needs and tastes. Her design process is pragmatic as well as creative/conceptual.

As a former green building activist, sitting on a number of boards devoted to environmental preservation and serving as president of the Sustainability Project, Helgerson has a long-standing interest in green building and sustainability. She holds a bachelors degree in English from the University of California, Los Angeles, and studied interior and environmental design at University of California, Santa Barbara. Fluent in French and Italian, she has lived and worked in Florence, Milan, Switzerland, and France. Her life in Europe and her travels in India, Mexico, Morocco, and the Far East have strongly influenced her work.
