Jennifer Talley came home one day and told her husband that she wanted to return to college for an Interior Design degree. Several years and an Interior Design degree later, she opened Jennifer Talley Interior Design in downtown Maryville.

“I had dabbled in interior styling, house flipping and remodeling most of my married life, but I wanted to validate my interest with a degree and formal training,” Talley stated. “I have lived in Maryville all of my life, and I love this town. When space became available downtown to move my business from my home and car, I jumped at the opportunity.”

“We love to be involved from conception to completion, working with the client, architect and contractor,” she continued. “We also offer home furnishings, drapery, finish selections, advice and basically a turn key experience.”

“It’s so exciting to see how much my business has grown in such a short time,” she said. “It started with just me at my kitchen table waiting for the phone to ring and has expanded to a team of four people in a studio space. I continue to add new designers and student interns based on client load. My projects range from one-room redesigns to 10,000 square foot remodels and higher-end new construction projects. I have way more responsibility than I ever imagined.”

“I’m no longer a hobby decorator but a manager, a CEO and an entrepreneur,” she said. “I am always most satisfied on installation day when the client has their “ah hah!” moment, and they finally see it all come together.”
