Jen Talbot Design is an interior design studio that provides full interior service as well as corporate branded environments. The firm embodies design that is detailed, personal and thoughtfully crafted. Incorporating her background in art, design and product development, Principal Jen Talbot, conceives artistic, modern and timeless environments that tell the individual story of each client with a collaborative approach. She believes that whether it be a residential, commercial or environmentally branded space, it should speak to and reflect the client naturally.
As an installation artist, Talbot entered the design world unconventionally. She received her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and spent the early years of her career as a practicing installation artist. She started designing space out of necessity, creating and developing the look and feel of a room to intersect with the art. Her trained eye as an installation artist, allows her to see each interior space with an unique perspective.
Talbot has collaborated with a variety of clients, ranging from top executives at Boeing, grass roots start ups and world renowned hotel chains. Talbot’s experience extends to a wide variety of styles, from a Kenwood historical home- mixing modern and prairie, ultra modern high rise in Gold Coast, Lincoln Park townhouse with a hotel regency spin to a bohemian chic loft in the Loop. Her background is full service residential and commercial design.
