Here's the skinny on Jessica...

Jessica Helgerson is an interior designer with more than fifteen years experience creating beautiful, livable spaces that meet clients’ aesthetic, functional, and economic goals, while respecting the environment.

and the colorful place that makes her happy...

My favorite colorful space isn't a room but a town. . . I totally love Guanajuato in Mexico, which is built in a valley and creates a giant happy colorful outdoor space. Every building is a different bright color and all of them together create a beautiful and playful mosaic.
