about Fresh Space Design

Fresh Space Design is a Minneapolis, Minnesota based full-service interior design firm that specializes in planning custom, residential remodeling projects. Working directly with homeowners or contractors, we value:

AUTHENTICITY

The heart of every project is you. We want your redesigned spaces to look like you, not us. Our goal is that you are delighted with your spaces, that they allow you to live, work, and play better.  The best compliment we receive is that a redesigned or remodeled space “looks like it was meant to be that way”.

 

APPROACHABILITY

Our process is designed to help make you feel comfortable. We encourage you to share your vision. We listen and explore ideas. We see your home from your point of view. We then suggest changes that will truly make a difference.

 

ARTFUL CREATION

We bring our expertise and creativity to every project.  We

balance aesthetics (how does it look?) and function (does it work?)

to create a one-of-a-kind result that expresses your definition of beauty, function and home.

 

ATTAINABILITY

We are available to help with every size of project. We will review your blueprints or DIY designs, help you find the perfect rug, design a kitchen remodel or an entire home transformation.

ABOUT GAIL JACOBSON

My appreciation for interior design began at age ten, when my mother redecorated our white-walled townhouse with rich orange, blue and apple green walls.  It seemed perfectly natural and right to me!  I spent my youth in art-related pursuits – drawing, painting, singing, dancing, and acting in plays and musicals. Our home was filled with the sounds of opera,  jazz and classical music. Needless to say, going into an art-related field was a foregone conclusion!

 

After earning a BFA and MFA in fine arts, I explored life as a studio artist, arts educator, and jewelry designer.  It was only upon buying and renovating my 1916 bungalow that I discovered my true calling  - helping people love and live better in their homes. I enrolled in an Interior Design program and was bitten by the remodeling process.  I've never looked back.

 

Fresh Space Design was born from my wish to offer homeowners an extraordinary interior design experience, with finished spaces that express their definition of home. Eighteen years as a designer has affirmed my belief that our interior spaces either support and nurture us, or work against us; they are critical to our well-being. Creating a well-designed space is a journey. It is an honor to be a trusted partner in my clients' journeys!

TESTIMONIALS

“My experience with Gail has been great so far…... She is always punctual, professional, and very responsive. She is considerate of her time (and the cost of that time) and her fees are reasonable - in my opinion it is well worth it to have someone knowledgeable on your side and helping to steer you in the right direction. I plan to continue to ask for that knowledge and guidance as we work through my project. During our initial consultation, Gail listened very closely to my goals and to what I dislike about my house. She immediately thought of ideas I hadn't previously considered. A couple of weeks later I had my plans, including elevations and renderings to use for obtaining quotes. She even drafted another idea (on her time) in case I wanted to go a different direction. She has given me guidance on cabinet selection (styles, materials, construction) and has given me recommendations for cabinet makers, flooring suppliers, painters, etc."
