Jessie Miller's Design Portfolio

Jessie defines her style as "urban regency," but she loves to take risks and push the design envelope.

  • Jessie Miller

    This space was empty, awkward and purposeless, but had a full wall of windows with a 17th-floor western view overlooking the park. The owner wanted something cozy that he could read a book in. Interior designer Jessie Miller dreamed up this oversized banquette that is cozier and comfier than a sofa — and includes a built-in bookcase!

  • High and Low Accessories

    Custom bookcases that were designed and installed in tandem with the custom banquette are styled with a mix of vintage, industrial and affordable mass-produced accessories.

  • Luxury TV Room

    A classic modern chaise gives a sleek and sophisticated lounge option to watching the television that rests on top of a toolbox media console. Industrial bookcases flank either side of the media console to tone down the enormity of the bachelor-sized TV.

  • Modern Symmetry

    The other side of the monstrous television is home to crazy-cool teak framed chairs, an arched floor lamp and another industrial bookcase. \"I love symmetry,\" Jessie says. \"These chairs are actually manufactured to be outdoor chairs, but I love them so much they are staying indoors.\"

  • Sleek 1960s Bedroom

    Midcentury-inspired wallpaper makes for a trippy focal point behind a minimal bed frame.

  • Functional Beauty

    Minimal and functional accessories add a whimsical start to the day when placed on a bedside table.

  • Retro-Chic Dining Space

    \"The Sputnik is probably my all-time favorite chandelier,\" Jessie says. This reproduction in shiny chrome adds a midcentury spark over the reclaimed wood Parsons dining table. The reproduction Cesca dining chairs add a luxurious touch to this masculine space.

  • Time for Cocktails?

    A vintage W.C. Fields poster overlooks a bar setup that offers libations in barware that was thrifted locally.

  • Jessie's Loft Living Room

    Jessie DIYed many projects to make her loft cozy and inviting. Here, the TV fades into a black wall to let the original artwork stand out.

  • Refurbished Family Furniture

    Jessie refinished an old family desk with silver spray paint to act as a console table to display her treasured Buddha statue. She updated the $40 statue with bright turquoise spray paint.

  • Budget Kitchen Makeover

    Jessie painted the boring maple cabinets a high-gloss black and made a full-height mirrored backsplash out of chargers from the craft store.

  • Cozy Bedroom

    A feminine bedroom is a relaxing retreat in a fairly monochromatic color palette. Luxe details with gilded and mirrored accessories give the space a little glitz.

  • Bright and Cheerful Dining Room

    The homeowners requested a Jonathan Adler-inspired, family-friendly living room. The homeowner's existing kitchen chairs got a mini-makeover with affordable new fabric.

  • Blue Bedroom

    A dramatic headboard is balanced by oversized art.

  • Piles of Pillows

    Piles of soft pillows add color and texture to make a bed feel more inviting.

  • Affordable Artwork

    Jessie framed various patterned papers and hung them in a collage to break up the large blue wall. A task lamp provides functional light to a dressing chair.
