About Jennifer

Jennifer Hunter Design is a boutique residential interior design firm based in New York City. Jennifer’s clients feel that their homes are true reflections of themselves. She prides herself on creating sophisticated, yet comfortable spaces tailored to reflect her clients’ lifestyles and unique personalities. The firm is currently working on projects in New York City, Washington, D.C., Tenafly, New Jersey, Austin, Texas and Palm Beach, Florida.

Growing up in a design and real estate focused family, Jennifer discovered her love for architecture and design at a very young age. Her formal foray into interior design began in 2006 when she had the privilege of interning for the late Albert Hadley. 

Upon graduating from the University of Texas in Austin with a degree in Architecture, Jennifer earned her Master’s degree in American Fine and Decorative Arts from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York City. Jennifer credits her extensive design knowledge to time spent at residential design firms before forming Jennifer Hunter Design in early 2019. She currently lives on the Upper West Side with her husband and two daughters

 

The "Hunter"

When designing Jennifer's collaboration rug, we focused on Khotan motifs and block prints, with some traditional Oushak elements throughout in an abstract pattern. The rug, designed for Jennifer’s living room in her future Washington, CT home, features muted tones of green, blue, cream, and raspberry. We believe it will lay the perfect foundation for Jennifer's country home!

Jennifer has always had an affinity towards traditional design; however, her skills were sharpened when she had the privilege of interning for Albert Hadley, who taught her to edit. "You can’t just throw every pretty fabric in one room. There needs to be a rhyme and reason and some unifying thread. One also needs to understand ‘the why’ and the historical significance," explains Jennifer.

Jennifer describes her home as very "me" and “traditional, but livable for a young family," and believes "a home is meant to be lived in, if something gets a little beat up it gives it character!"
