A Place Set Apart

Creative Spaces

Interior Design • Event Planning • Vacation Rental

 

Jennifer’s creative spaces are another form of her art – eclectic and filled with layers and experiences. They are a reflection of who she is on the inside, brought forth on a tangible level. Whether she is designing and creating art, a home, or an event, her signature style is apparent and lovingly treated with meticulous detail.
 



 

“We were so impressed by the surroundings upon first glance, and fascinated by the taste and design of the owner. I love the natural wooden texture all over the place, but also noticed lots of delicate ideas in the space. I wish I could meet with the owner and thank her for her generosity and creativity. It was absolutely perfect. We just loved it.” – A Guest

Background

 

Jennifer bought her first house in 1983 – a 500 year old farmhouse in Ibiza, Spain. With no water or electricity, and a leaking roof, the adventure and passion for creating interesting spaces was born. From then on she sought out unusual locations and places to renovate; an old jam factory in Paris transformed into a loft with an interior garden, and a 16th century building in a Paris suburb was gutted and turned into a 700 square meter multi-level home and art studio. An old rambling Victorian on the edge of a historic village in California was reduced to a facade and then rebuilt from the ground up – modern, open and loft like on the inside; a perfect venue to exhibit her collages.
 
She subsequently designed and built a 34-foot tall redwood and cedar water tower guesthouse on the same property, with glorious views up and down the Northern California coast. Nestled in the towering Redwoods, on a five acre lot just a few minutes away, Jennifer designed and oversaw the construction of a 2,000 square foot art studio / barn made from mostly recycled materials, complete with an upstairs “Forest Suite” retreat for guests to enjoy. Jennifer has coordinated Mendocino Film Festival events, weddings, art and garden tours, private parties, and films and commercials. Her California venues are all available for rent for short or long term getaways.


“Jennifer has been the Events Coordinator for the Mendocino Film Festival since it’s inception ten years ago. She has helped establish the standard of excellence, quality, and elegance that we are known for, and it has been a pleasure working with her.” – Michael Fox, Director, Mendocino and Napa Valley Film Festivals

 

“Jennifer’s property in Mendocino was the perfect location for our wedding. When we saw Dilkusha, we knew we had found the place to celebrate our special day. The whole weekend was a dream come true for us. It was just a perfect scenario. We had our ceremony in front of the Village Watertower with a backdrop of the Mendocino Headlands and a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean that was postcard perfect. After the ceremony, our guests enjoyed cocktails and live music on the huge deck that surrounds the main house, and we took advantage of the numerous beautiful locations around the property to have our wedding pictures taken. We then joined our guests in the beautifully decorated tent for our dinner, reception, and dancing. It was truly amazing. We still think back to our wedding and the reactions of our guest when they saw Jennifer’s property and know it was the best place in the world for our wedding.” – Sarah & Chris
