City Farmhouse is finally doing e-consults!!! You have been asking for years so I am thrilled to announce this new layer to my site. My goal with this service is to help you create the home you have always dreamed of via email and phone consultation.
Designing a house can be an arduous endeavor. There are many choices & decisions to be made and so many styles to love. This is where I come in, to give you a plan and purpose for each space. Think about how much easier it is when you have someone on your team, a friend giving you professional advice. Not only will you save money and time but now decisions become more clear because there is a strategy in place. We will have fun exploring style(s), color, paint, layout, texture, lighting, furniture selections and art to create a functional & comfortable space everyone can enjoy. At the end of the day, it’s about giving you choices and tools to empower you to create a home to love.
Here is how it works….
The process is very simple. Fill out the questionnaire, be as specific as possible, and upload images of your space. From there I will contact you via email to explore your package selection and set up a phone consultation.
Full E-Consult: $450 per room
This package includes a one-hour design consultation with me via phone. We will discuss your needs and wants for the space. From there I will create a mood board, Pinterest board, and expansive source list. You can use this design plan to keep you on track, whether you decide to tackle everything right away or spread it out over time.
Partial E-Consult: $300 per room
This package also includes a one-hour phone consult with me, to discuss your needs for the space. From there I will create a Pinterest board with sources and links.
Paint Consult: $150 per room
This includes up to a 45-minute phone consult. I will follow up with a choice of up to 5 hues. From there you can get samples to see how the paint looks in your space in various lights at different times of the day. I am happy to connect with you after to confirm your choice.
Phone Consult: $100 per hour
Sometimes you just need a trusted friend to steer you in the right direction. I can offer guidance from style selection, paint choices, fabrics, layout, furniture sources, where to start, to what stays and what goes, etc. This includes a one-hour phone consult only.
Jen was the visionary behind a giving back makeover story in our October 2017 issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Her enthusiasm for helping others, dedication to the months-long project, and penchant for design are a few of the many reasons Jen is a wonderful person to partner with. She’s a talented worker bee with a big heart, and she puts in 110 percent every step of the way.

I recently had the opportunity to work with designer/decorator Jen O’Brien. Jen is an extraordinary, multi-talented individual who is skilled in every aspect of interior design. The client we worked with was at a very fragile moment in her life. What truly sets Jen apart from anyone I have ever worked with was the kindness, empathy, consideration, and compassion she showed. Her generosity and giving spirit are evident in everything she does.

‘I would like to express my gratitude to Jen for designing our lower level. This room has been problematic for us since we moved in trying to figure out how to make it function for multiple uses and somehow accomplish that on a budget. Not only did Jen meet our needs, she far surpassed them! She broke down each area into a clear design for each function, supplying links to all of the items, and finding the perfect pieces that fit into both our aesthetic AND our budget. The best part is, through listening and asking questions she nailed the perfect design for our family that feels like ‘us’ and we are so grateful to her! Jen is unbelievably kind, so easy to talk to, and is wildly talented! If you ever get the chance to work with her do not hesitate and you’ll be so glad you did! Thank you, Jen!’
