“When my husband and I decided to update our 30 year old home, Jill was the first person we called. That was our best decision! Jill provided wonderful choices for us in a very respectful and timely manner. We have not regretted one decision and are extremely pleased with not only the appearance but the ease with which our home was transformed. Working with Jill was a very positive experience.”
Nancy and Dennis Overson

“We still enjoy living in our 1913 Cora Tuttle bungalow; it’s flexibility accommodates our family and guests. We are eternally grateful for Jill’s design input, recommendations and solutions that improved the function of our home. We also appreciated her practicality. In several instances, her input saved us unnecessary expenditures. She designed a railing around the flat garage roof, which covered an eyesore into a sympathetic extension of our original bungalow. Formerly unused, we now dine off the garage deck during the warmer weather under the open sky. The attractive pergola she recreated for the front stoop shields the landing from winter ice flows off the house roof that used to make it a treacherous spot. We love preparing meals in the remodeled kitchen, which incorporates original elements with new storage areas, making it a more efficient, enjoyable and inspiring place to cook.”
Doris & Dick Dubielzig, Madison Bungalow Owners

“Jill’s fresh idea to give the front of our bi-level home a bump out and new facade allowed for a full staircase and more light and space for a new entrance. Adding a kitchen island to a challenging space and the creative ways of fitting a master bath, walk-in closet and first floor laundry, as well as reusing pieces of the original house, transformed a 1970’s box home into a modern, bright home.”
Jill & John Ottow, Fort Atkinson Homeowners

“Jill Kessenich and her Bungalow Pros team have served as our partners in our efforts large and small to restore our 1914 Prairie/Craftsman home to its former glory. From assistance with wall covering selections to the design of a new fireplace/built-in bookshelf wall, Jill’s artistic talent and professional expertise have helped us get the kind of result we wanted.”
Ethel Himmel and Bill Wilson, Milton, Wisconsin

“I wanted a more period kitchen for my 1918 bungalow, and Jill’s Hoard Museum design caught my eye – here was someone who understood old houses! She is great to work with – lots of good ideas, very diplomatic, keeps the project moving. She solved some design challenges (crazy doorways, awkward chimney) while still staying within my budget. She kept me from making color mistakes, and even little things like her recommendations for cabinet hardware make the design better. Now my kitchen feels like it fits with the house, and I’m still admiring it every day!”
Kay, Milwaukee Bungalow Owner

“It was a pleasure working with Jill to design our home. The house captures the Victorian farmhouse look that we wanted, there is plenty of natural light and the layout works very efficiently.”
Ed & Jeanine Morse, Lake Mills Homeowners

“Jill did such a wonderful job of translating our tastes and diffuse ideas into an interior design that’s both beautiful and comfortable. It was a new home and a very complex project. She managed an avalanche of detail, and never got flustered when we wanted to make changes. We are always complimented on the gorgeous color scheme in the home—and we give her the credit. She went the extra mile to find just the right fixtures or accessories. When we moved in, we felt “at home” instantly, which is perhaps the greatest compliment you can give a designer.”
Jim & Karen, Madison Homeowners

“We wanted help putting together a long-term plan for a series of renovations of our 1920s bungalow. Jill listened carefully to our needs and gave us two design options. The projects we’ve done so far using Jill’s plans have turned out beautifully.”
Lyn, Madison Bungalow Owner
