Hey friend, I’m Jaime!
I’m the owner and principal designer at FD Design. This isn’t your typical design studio, so please, stay awhile.
If you’re like me, you’ve likely been jolted awake from a nap in your dream home to your actual ‘ho-hum’ current situation? How about starting project after project to still walk in and not have it be what you’ve been dreaming of? Better yet, you’ve decided to build your dream home and are now overwhelmed at all the possibilities.
Serving the greater Lehigh Valley, PA we specialize in making your current home, your dream home. Oh yeah, without you having to break your piggy bank! Because it is expensive to feed your kids these days!
I’ve spent equal time picking up after my biggish family of six, as I have being a designer, so when I say I get it, I get it. You want to feel refreshed and invited in, not be afraid of what’s behind door #2. Three out of my four kids are teenagers, I am terrified of what’s behind door #2.
This entire process is all about you. Your style, your budget, how you want to function in your home. Want to incorporate some of what you have, awesome! Want to start from scratch, sounds great! This is for you.
I took my passion for functional spaces, wellness filled homes and locally sourced goods & services and created my dream design firm. I structured the studio to function around flat fee packages. If you’re like me, you don’t like big surprise bills 😉 These packages are designed with you in mind, and are based on our most commonly requested services. While offering design services we also function as a design/build firm, and are licensed as a home improvement general contractor in Pennsylvania. This helps you during a renovation have to only deal with one person. Moving from large commercial design builds into the residential world, it was a simple process.
I am here to help you chose the perfect package for you, so don’t sweat trying to choose on your own. To get you on your way to your dream space let’s schedule your Creative Exploration Call and get you on your way to making your home become your dream home.
Of course I couldn’t do all this on my own. I have a super talented staff that is more than amazing at helping me keep the studio running smoothly on a daily basis. Sometimes you may have a lot of contact with them, other times not. Either way, they are always behind the scenes, finding my glasses and keeping me on track.
Kelly Beadle, Administrative Design Assistant
Kelly is the go-to for all things around the studio. She helps to collaborate on designs, orders samples, coordinates deliveries, carries out the procurement phase and keeps things tidy. She also makes sure we are all properly fed and caffeinated (honestly this is high priority).
Kelly’s background is journalism and was previously the lead reporter for the Northern Kent County edition of the Grand Rapids Advance News publication. She also is boy mom to her two high school age sons.
Rachel Sklenar, Design Assistant/ 3D Rendering
Rachel assists with space planning, design and does all of our 3D renderings we offer our clients with their design packages. She is a recent graduate from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI who works remotely for us from Florida! Rachel loves to travel and shares our studio’s love of coffee 🙂

**And if you want to know all the boring nitty gritty stuff like the name of the school I got my degree at, how I know how to make sure a space is ADA code compliant, how I can spec lighting like a boss, and create a punch list that will make the toughest union construction worker cry, I’d be happy to get that over to you!**
