Jerilyn was really easy to work with. She was open to my ideas and turned them into beautiful designs for our kitchen, bathrooms, and built-ins. Whenever I had questions or concerns she was always quick to respond and help me come up with a solution. Jerilyn had a lot of great design ideas and was helpful with picking things out for my kitchen. I would highly recommend her to anyone building a new home or wanting to remodel.

- Kate Parkhurst, Grandview, IA

I had a great experience with Jerilyn at Myers Design Studio. The kitchen design was perfect and exactly what I was wanting. Any problems we had Jerilyn was a phone call away to fix. Would highly recommend.

- Karie Parrott, Danville, IA

Jerilyn had creative ideas as to how to remodel my spaces. She provided me with several options always considerate of my personal preferences. She returned my phone calls and replied to my emails in a timely manner.

- Miriam Grimes, Keokuk, IA

Jerilyn did an awesome job doing a tile design that fit into our budget. She was willing to make appointments to meet with us and look at different options. She was always willing to listen and give her opinion and answer any questions I had. The diagrams were very professional and helpful to our contractors. She also worked with our contractors giving them specific direction. She also provided an excellent recommendation on tile contractors, Dan and Ron.

- Leslie Edens, West Point, IA

This year, my husband and I hired Jerilyn to design and oversee the remodeling of our kitchen. She did an excellent job of walking us through each of the steps and bringing to life what we desired within our new kitchen. She maintained professionalism throughout the whole process even when the granite company screwed up our countertops (not once, but twice!). Jerilyn came to the house to ensure the third time was done correctly as well as called the granite company on our behalf to try to get a discount for the long wait. Looking at our new kitchen, my husband and I couldn't be happier. She gave us exactly what we wanted and more!

- Todd and Heidi Huckabone, Mt. Pleasant, IA

Jerilyn was a lifesaver in the help she provided building my condo. I have received so many compliments on some of the unique features. She helped guide me while keeping my taste in mind. Definitely 5 stars!!!

- Melodee Kennedy, Burlington, IA

Jerilyn has been working with us from the moment we bought our home. She brought her amazing style while still being mindful of what our thoughts and needs were. She helped remodel an entire kitchen, master bedroom, and master bathroom. We couldn't be more happy with the results. She is extremely talented, flexible, and honest. I would highly recommend her to anyone and would use her again for future projects.

- Ashley Benbow, Ft. Madison, IA

Jerilyn provided guidance in designing an addition to our home attached to our swimming pool. It included a bathroom, locker area and kitchen/living area. She suggested appliances, countertops, cabinets, etc. and arrange their placement. We could not have been happier with our experience. She was prompt, cheerful and very informative. We would definitely use her services again and would highly recommend her to others.

- Mark and Kara Pothitakis, Ft. Madison, IA

Jerilyn helped us to design new features in our kitchen remodeling project. She listened to our wishes then created exactly what we needed. Everything was done in such a timely fashion, she checked on our progress and was quick to answer questions. Measurements were precise. We had the exact amounts we needed so we did not spend money on wasted materials. We would highly recommend her and would use her again.

- Aaron and Patricia Coe, Mt. Pleasant, IA

Jerilyn designed a fabulous bathroom for us! She was extremely creative, professional, and pleasant to work with. My husband and I are incredibly happy with our new bathroom, and will certainly be calling Jerilyn for our home design/renovation needs in the future!

- Brent and Elizabeth Woodbury, Ft. Madison, IA

Jerilyn was hired to design and remodel our kitchen including cabinets and countertops. She did an excellent job and was very helpful. She walked us through design ideas, countertop choices, and material options.

I had contacted another company several weeks prior to Jerilyn and she had designs made and project costs back to me before the other company could even come up with a design. I would highly recommend Jerilyn for any design work that is needed.

- Rick and Ann Sartorius, Mt. Pleasant, IA

Our time with Jerilyn was a joy. Always very professional.

She has a great eye for seeing the whole picture - a big help to the person that does not have that ability. I liked her choice of colors. Not knowing us before the project, I was impressed with her ability to pick up ideas just from talking to us. I would definitely work with Jerilyn again.

- Dennis and Kate Menke, West Point, IA

Jerilyn Horn is a great designer that we truly enjoy. She has a great eye for style. I have personally worked with Jerilyn for several years and have worked on projects of many different types. I have done several kitchen and bathroom tiling projects and also set stacked cultured stone around a fireplace as well. Many times I send my customers to her for their design needs because I am confident that she will help them in the same manner that I want to help them.

Not only is Jerilyn talented, but I also appreciate that her professionalism is matched with her friendliness. In my business, that is what I want and expect of myself, so I want to surround myself with people that are that way too.

It truly was a fun and rewarding experience to have Jerilyn help us in the design of our new kitchen. We had three different designers come to plan a new kitchen design and Jerilyn's was the one we chose. It was so helpful to be able to see everything done in color on the computer to give us a true picture of what it would look like.

Jerilyn was easy to work with, helpful in every way and she really knew her stuff. She was good to tell us her view on ideas and reassure us as we went through our remodel process. I would highly recommend this wonderful talented designer to anyone....a true professional! We love our new kitchen and we feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Jerilyn!

- Paul and Barb O'Day, Kahoka, MO

I have worked with Jerilyn on several cabinet jobs. We have done kitchens, craft rooms, pharmacy work areas and entertainment centers.

I really appreciate her communication skills and her creative imagination. She pays attention to detail which means that the correct cabinets and trim pieces are ordered the first time. If a question comes up, all it takes is a phone call to have her explain what she wants done. The best part is when we are finished with a cabinet job, we have another happy customer.

Jerilyn helped with the initial design and layout changes during our recent master suite remodel. She provided great design assistance and was a great resource in the selection of our cabinets, countertops and closet shelving. She has a great knowledge of the materials that she recommends and made great recommendations. Jerilyn was easy to work with and I would highly recommend her services.

- Larry and Carolyn Smith, Ft. Madison, IA

After a kitchen fire accelerated our plans for kitchen remodeling, we needed help. And it arrived in the form of Jerilyn Horn.

We were so pleased with Jerilyn that we recommended her to friends in Missouri who were remodeling. They liked her so much, they went with her also. She is easy to talk to, listens and grasps your thoughts and descriptions and is able to apply them to her interpretation of your desires. During the computer "look-see", she listened to more thoughts and desires and was able to make any necessary changes and provide guidance when we were clueless. She had suggestions on saving money (granite remnants) and was available to our installers and custom woodworkers.

I would recommend Jerilyn Horn for any home remodel you may encounter or desire.

- Tom and Sandy Bertucci, Nauvoo, IL

Jerilyn was excellent to work with on our Movie Theater restoration project. She had great design ideas, was easy to work with, and had excellent follow up.

I would highly recommend her for any project.

Jerilyn's great sense of style and positive attitude made designing my new home fun. Jerilyn was very helpful and understood my specific needs and wants in my new kitchen and bathrooms. She had a good understanding of the product lines she was dealing with and made my wish list come true!

- Craig and Dorothy Pollpeter, Wever, IA

Jerilyn is great to work with. She goes above & beyond and has great vision of what the finished product will be.

Highly recommended.

- Dorothy Thorne, Mt. Pleasant, IA

Great about answering questions and providing quality work. Work was carried out in a timely manner and any errors/miscommunications were handled fairly in a respectful manner. Would gladly do business Jerilyn in the future!

- Chris and Erin Heaton, Mt. Pleasant, IA

I live in Fort Madison, Iowa and my husband and I just completed the building of our new home. While my husband did all of the construction of the house, I was left with the decorating. I am not very good at visualizing in my head what things will look like finished; therefore I knew I was in need of a designer when it came to my kitchen.

I was introduced to Jerilyn Horn. What an amazing lady!! She was wonderful! Jerilyn helped me to create my dream kitchen and stay within my budget which was no small feat. She literally took the picture out of my head and put it on paper for me to see.

We have been in our home for 3 months now and I am still in awe at the beautiful kitchen she helped me to design! I would definitely recommend Jerilyn Horn to anyone in the need of a designer with quality products. Thank You Jerilyn for making my dream come true!!

- Marcie Gaylord, Ft. Madison, IA

Our recent move to Fort Madison and the decision to build a new house necessitated the need for expert advice on a wide variety of things, not the least of which was the kitchen area. We had a limited budget, limited space, but fortunately found that Jerilyn Horn was equal to the challenge.

She not only appreciated our design tastes and planned lifestyle; she knew the right products, features and materials that would fit all our needs. We found her to be open-minded and up to date on the eclectic issues of modern kitchen layouts. She was flexible, intelligent and knowledgeable of the local market.

Overall, Jerilyn was a joy to work with and we thoroughly enjoy our new kitchen.

- Mike and Viki Killoren, Ft. Madison, IA

When moving to Atlanta, GA, I was in need of assistance in renovating my new home. Jerilyn, while attending The Chicago Institute of Art and Design, accepted a design consulting position for me personally and assisted in making my new house a "home".

The services she provided were from furniture selection and placement, to selecting colors and interior treatments that truly reflected my personality.

After graduating with honors, I quickly offered Jerilyn a position as a designer within Expo Design Center. Customers were able to translate their thoughts and dreams of professional design oriented kitchens, baths, great rooms, and whole house remodels through Jerilyn's assistance.

I would highly recommend Jerilyn's services to any organization or individual who is looking for a talented designer.

- Kecia Lamm, Atlanta, GA, Former Vice President, General Manager Expo Design Centers

I first contacted Jerilyn in the summer of 2009 after reading an article about her interior design business in a local newspaper. I had been looking for some sort of decorating help for a couple of years – but living in rural Iowa I soon learned there weren't many independent options. The designers I did find were usually tied to another business and I didn't want to be obligated to buy their products.

Our first meeting Jerilyn came to the house to take pictures and measurements. She also asked me several questions regarding my likes and dislikes. This helped put me at ease as even though I wanted to do something new, I was nervous about the change. Through the entire process of decorating our living room and foyer (from wall color to furniture, drapes, and accessories), Jerilyn presented me various options and helped me visualize with pictures. I had no preconceived notions about what I wanted in terms of colors or cost, but gradually we were able to work towards a finished product that we have received SO many compliments on.

I truly appreciate Jerilyn's patience and creativity as I know I wasn't much help. I'm not always good at visualizing things, but Jerilyn provided pictures and drawings to help me decide what I liked and didn't like. Additionally she provided several options about each of the details which kept me in control of the final look and cost. My biggest complaint is that the living room was supposed to be "my room" as my husband and kids enjoy our rec. room. However, once the project was complete they all loved the look and feel of the room so much that they use it too. I still don't have control over the remote!

- Courtney Davis, Winfield, IA

We remodeled our entire home and needed help with the color schemes. We wanted every room to be a different color, yet they all had to work together. The whole project seemed overwhelming to us.

Jerilyn understood exactly what we wanted and came up with color schemes that were perfect! And then she went a step further and gave us ideas for accessory/decor colors - which ended up completing the look and feel of all of the rooms in our home.

Jerilyn listened to our thoughts and ideas and was intuitive as to our needs. Then she applied her skills to make the magic happen! We are so happy with the results!!
