She made sure it was all perfect.
We had a great experience working with Jennifer Hoey and her highly organized design team. We had never built a home before and soon realized how crucial Jennifer’s professional guidance was with the myriad decisions that had to be made from the practical to the decorative. From planning floor tile layouts, to choosing doors & wood floor stains, to picking bathroom faucets, she made sure it was all perfect. All before we even thought about furniture. Her team was able to work within our budget and always suggested an elevated style that we would not have come up with on our own. We are thrilled with the finished product!

The entire process was easy and professional.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jennifer and her associates. Our condo needed a serious update and they took care of everything. The plans were very fresh and were so descriptive, it was easy to understand what our remodel was going to look like. Since we don’t live full time in Sun Valley, they made the remodel process very easy. They helped us clear out the condo to prepare for the remodel and store what we needed stored. They also helped us find a contractor, and worked with our contractor to make sure our plans were implemented. We were communicated with regularly so we knew what was going on all the time. Finally, when our remodel was done, they organized moving all our stuff and our new furniture back to the condo and helped us set up our new condo. The entire process was easy and very professional. And, we love our updated condo!

She met the challenge with creative inspiration.
Our home started as a funky 1970’s A-Frame. Jennifer worked closely with our architect and builder to transform into a beautiful, contemporary home for our family of five! The most important design requirement we had was integrating the wilderness that surrounds our property into a cozy home. Jennifer designed a space that not only allows us to enjoy the beauty that envelops us but also is a joyful home that inspires all of us daily. Jennifer is meticulous in meeting her client’s needs. We couldn’t have been more satisfied with how she managed the design and building of our home. From the design phase to the furnishing, Jennifer made the process of a remodel a fun experience for all of us.

Her creativity brought our 19th century building into the new era.
Jennifer is fantastic designer. With her great sense of style and space planning talent, she was essential in helping us turn our small office space into a model of efficiency. Her creativity with design helped to bring our 19th century building into the new era with grace and poise, while achieving our budget goals. I have worked with many designers in the past would strongly recommend Jennifer for projects of any size, scope and scale.

The results speak for themselves and we could not be more pleased.
Jennifer is multi-talented and takes a more holistic approach than some of her peers. She worked closely with our builder and architect to keep our vision in the forefront and to make sure that what was being drawn could be built and would also serve a purpose. Nothing superfluous, nothing we didn’t need or want. She was with us from the very beginning and helped keep us sane during the construction process.
Jennifer listened carefully to all of my ideas and executed them well beyond my expectations.
I engaged Jennifer Hoey Smith to oversee the decorating of my 9,000-square-foot ranch house in Bellevue, Idaho from 2003 to 2006. She provided me with a thoughtful plan and well-documented options for all the purchase decisions while meeting my criteria throughout. Her communication and documentation was excellent which was critical because I was making decisions from San Francisco and relied on her completely.
Jennifer was a pleasure to work with and helped smooth over any difficulties that developed with other participants on the project. I am extremely pleased with the final product and feel that Jennifer’s good decisions and contributions to the total effort more than justified her fee.

Jennifer was our second set of eyes.
We had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Hoey over the course of two years of design and construction. Because our project was located in a different state than our primary home, it was important for us to have a “second set of eyes” onsite to oversee the progress of the project. As the daughter of a meticulous building contractor, I was particularly conscientious about the quality of the finished product. Jen exceeded our expectations regarding the attention to detail and in keeping us on task to meet the deadlines. She has a keen eye for design, color and scale. It was truly a pleasure to work with her.

She was a delight to work with and her vision was achieved with a seamless blending of the old and the new.
I had the pleasure of hiring Jennifer Hoey Smith two years ago as my interior designer. She was referred to me by my architect, Jeffrey Williams, of Ketchum, Idaho. During our interview, she impressed me with her organization, pleasant personality, creativity, and vision for the project, which had its challenges. (I was remodeling a 1950s ranch-style home in Ketchum and building a large wing and outdoor room onto it.)
Jennifer was tireless in all her efforts despite being pregnant and then a new mother. Jennifer has an amazing talent for creating warm and inviting spaces, selecting color palettes, designing elevations, and outlining interior specifications. She worked and communicated well with all members of the architectural, construction, and tradesman teams.
Jennifer ran her business very professionally and the invoices were clear, timely, and accurate. She can easily accommodate an owner’s design ideas and will gently dissuade you if you have a bad idea.
I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Jennifer and would do it all again. I highly recommend her as the most talented interior designer in the Wood River Valley.

We expected a lot and
we got far more.
We put ourselves in the hands of one of the best designers and quickly realized that we totally underestimated how good the best could be. Our expectations were exceeded at every turn. Design solutions emerged from Jennifer Hoey Smith that we had never considered, designs that were simple, elegant, and functional. Jennifer and her design team were able to take our incompletely developed thoughts, and often conflicting or vague ideas, and develop solutions that worked for everyone. Jennifer can hold her own with other building professionals and facilitate solutions that achieve her client’s vision. She can work to a deadline and be relied upon to meet it. We enjoyed every session with Jennifer and her design team. We admired their ingenuity, their know how, their wit, and their intuitive understanding of space, function, colors, and textures. We expected a lot; we got far more. And best of all, we love how everything turned out in our space!

Jennifer did a fabulous job helping us with all aspects of our new home in Sun Valley!
We had purchased land with a structure that had been stopped at just the rough framing stage. The original plans called for a very traditional heavy timber lodge style house, but Jennifer helped us turn it into our vision of mountain contemporary. Jennifer was hugely helpful in first getting the interior colors , stains and finishes selected. Then helped coordinate everything from cabinet design to lighting, furniture, fabrics, hardware, window coverings and rugs! On top of being very creative, having great vision and presenting lots of options on all selections, Jennifer and her staff are consummate professionals on the ordering, delivery coordination and all the small follow up items. I can highly recommend Jennifer and her team!

Her advice, input, and attention to detail were flawless.
For the last three years, Jennifer Hoey Smith has been a wonderful part of our life. We hired Jennifer to help decorate our newly-built home in Sun Valley, Idaho. Jennifer was a pleasure to work with on all levels. She stayed on task and completed the job within our budget and on time. On a personal level, she was a joy to spend time with and get to know as a friend. Our project was large but Jennifer was able to oversee every detail of it and was always readily available to discuss any questions and concerns we had. Because we do not live in Sun Valley, we depended on Jennifer to handle many of the tough questions the architect and builder had. She was always able to manage this with great confidence and we never questioned her ability to do so. It made the whole process easy and enjoyable. Our house is now finished and thanks to Jennifer, it is absolutely breathtaking. We recommend Jennifer Hoey Smith with great enthusiasm!
