Headshot of Gail, owner of Fresh Space Design

About Gail Jacobson - A Founder's Story

Gail's appreciation for interior design began at age ten when her mother redecorated their home with rich orange, blue and apple green walls and

decor. Gail spent her youth pursuing drawing, painting, singing, dancing, and acting in plays and musicals. Her home was filled with the sounds of jazz, opera, and classical music. Needless to say, pursuing an art-related career

was a foregone conclusion.


After earning BFA and MFA degrees in drawing and painting, Gail explored life as an artist, arts educator, and jewelry designer.  It was only upon buying and the renovating her 1916 bungalow that she discovered her true calling  - helping people love and live better in their homes. Gail enrolled in an Interior Design program, was smitten with the remodeling process, and never looked back.

An Extraordinary Interior Design Experience


Fresh Space Design was born from Gail's desire to provide homeowners with

an extraordinary interior design experience. Twenty-plus years as a designer has affirmed her belief that interior spaces are critical to our, joy, productivity, and well-being. Creating a well-designed space is a journey. Gail is honored to be a trusted partner in her clients' journeys!

“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."
