My husband and I hired Jonathan to decorate our four-bedroom 1929 English Tudor because we were so impressed with the decorating he did for my sister, parents and cousin. Jonathan is truly a full-service decorator. He has excellent taste and judgement, simplifies the process, and always works within the budget. He is very collaborative and a pleasure to work with. The way he helped my husband and I implement our vision for our home was incredible. Jonathan is very artistic and has a great eye. He did decorative painting in our breakfast room which we love, and even helped us start our art collection. We truly enjoyed Working with Jonathan and are thrilled with our beautiful and elegantly decorated home.

Mr. Hress is a noble man, and a fine designer. I say that after interacting with him for the last twelve years. I have owned Imaginative Design Center for 23 years. During that time I have come across a multitude of design professionals and there are none finer than Jonathan. He makes our job easier and the customers outcome more complete. He is always well prepared and can cut through the vast possibilities of decorative choices to gain swift results. His clients love him and have always shown complete faith in his work. It would be your pleasure to have him direct all of your design projects.

I was first introduced to Jonathan Hress in January of 2007, I work for a medical practice and as the Chief Operations Officer I was in charge of overseeing the design and renovation of three offices. His decorative style and excellent resources for furniture, trim and accessories captured the feeling of warmth and comfort in each office. He managed to coordinate the efforts of many parties and keep the projects moving in a timely fashion while maintaining control over a high volume of details. He is extremely creative, innovative, honest and hardworking. It was a pleasure to work with Jonathan. On a personal note, I also hired Jonathan to renovate my bathroom in my home. He did a terrific job in transforming an old outdated bathroom into a beautiful and elegant room.

Jonathan Hress has been a wonderful addition to our lives. I began using Jonathan years ago as a decorative painter for my dining room. He proved to be a conscientious and skillful decorative painter and the result was a beautiful! I was in the process of adding an addition to my home and needed a lot of guidance. Jonathan mentioned that he was an interior designer and offered his assistance during a very stressful time. He patiently consulted with the crew and brought creative ideas to the project. His calm and pleasant demeanor makes him an asset to any job. He has a passion for art and an ability to accessorize a room with an elegant touch, all while staying within a budget. Jonathan is wonderful to work with because he is always prompt, reliable and flexible. My home is now a beautiful, warm and inviting place for me and my family.

My husband and I were a little nervous about engaging a designer when we bought our townhouse a couple of years ago. We didn't want to be pushed or coaxed into buying anything we didn't like or couldn't afford. Our concerns were totally unfounded when we hired Jonathan Hress to help us design our home. He worked with us from the start, never pushing, never coaxing; just gently suggesting. And every suggestion was a winner. I still love walking into my home and admiring Jonathan's work. Everywhere I look, there is a sense of Jonathan, but also a sense of my husband and myself. He understood our likes and dislikes better than we did! He was able to blend new with old and always stay within our financial constraints. Above all else, Jonathan was a delight to work with. He made choosing tile, selecting colors and shopping for faucets enjoyable and even fun. I am so glad we found Jonathan and forever grateful to him for the beautiful home he created for us.

Jonathan Hress is the best interior designer. He has completed multiple design and specialty painting projects for my home. His strengths are his design sense and eye for color. He quickly assessed my personal style and color preferences without any need for explanation. He presented multiple design options for each project. Every option was beautiful and aligned with my taste and style. He also has very good sense of scale. He measures carefully and recommends solutions that are properly scaled to the space. He has thorough knowledge of vendors and suppliers and he knows what materials and colors will work in each space. In addition he is professionally pleasant and arrives promptly and well prepared for appointments. His estimates and proposals are detailed and accurate. He is also considerate and mindful of the project budget and timeline.
