who we are

Swatch Interiors creates fresh and updated spaces that are tailored to our clients unique, personal aesthetic while taking care of all the functional details- so you can enjoy the process!



Jr. Designer

I love every aspect of design whether it is simple or complex. I have a passion for working with clients and getting them to where they want to be with their projects. I have loved designing for as long as I can remember. I come from a family that remodels everything on our own and I am the one in the house that changes their room every couple of months. I am a recent graduate from the College of DuPage with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science – Interior Design and an Interior Design Computer Applications Certificate.
Outside of work, you will find me spending time with family and friends enjoying the outdoors at any chance that we get.

I love to create and style —anything from hair to homes! It is so fulfilling to see the joy our clients have when they see their finished design and I cannot wait to help create your beautiful space. My favorite part of design is the details and finishing touches; the pieces that help our clients to live and experience life well.

Outside of work, I love a good sushi roll, finding the latest fun restaurant in the city, working out, and of course shopping!

I guess you can say design is in my blood since I grew up with both my dad and my grandpa working as local home builders. I can remember spending hours pouring over their blueprints and imagining how the homeowners would live in the spaces —always making adjustments in my head that would better suit their lifestyle! Laundry rooms should always be larger, right?

After designing residential and commercial projects in the Northwest Indiana region for over 15 years, Swatch Interiors was born. I’ve always dreamed of what Swatch could be and what I would like to accomplish with it. I LOVE HELPING! My favorite part is getting to know my clients, learning how they live best, and creating relationships built on trust, integrity, and honesty. 

Since our start in 2015, I have been able to work with such wonderful clients (many of whom have become great friends) and as I look forward to wherever God leads this adventure, I would love for you to be a part of the story!


Creative Director 

meet the team

Since I was little, I have always loved to create. Nothing made me happier than a new set of colored pencils and a fresh sketch pad. I took every art class offered in high school and decided to pursue my love of the arts in college, earning my B.A in Interior Design at Columbia College in Chicago. 
From my first design job out of college to my most recent project, I have loved every part of working in this field. But the most special part by far, are the people I meet and the privilege I have of designing the spaces they live and work in each day. 
During my free time you’ll find me spending time with family and friends, putzing around the yard, or looking for inspiration in an antique shop or market.

Jessica Dees

Director of Operations 

With over 20 years of experience in all areas of business management and operations, it has filled my heart to find a home within Swatch Interiors. I love everything about processes, procedures, organization, and real estate so I am able to utilize my skills and passions by serving our clients through construction management as well as furniture procurement & general account services. 

On my days away from Swatch Interiors, you will find me knee-deep in a home project, running my three kids all over creation, watching a basketball game, or simply relaxing with my family and friends —preferably on some waterfront property!


Drafter Designer

I discovered my love of architecture and design in college when I took my first CAD class. I was intrigued by how homes were constructed and how design can change an ordinary house to feel like a home. Since then, I have focused on learning 3D rendering, the standards of construction documents, and other aspects of building information modeling. 

After graduating from Purdue University in 2018, I have continued to be inspired by design and have learned so much, especially at Swatch Interiors. It gives me so much fulfillment to be a part of projects that impact people’s day to day life, and I love to see the transformation of a space from beginning to end. 

In my free time, I love to travel. From exploring the cities and streets of Europe, to hiking in the lush forests of the Pacific Northwest I strive to have local experiences and create friendships with people all around the world. Along with traveling, I also enjoy reading, cooking, and photography.
