"Jill has worked with us on two homes and an office over a
period of 15 years, and made all three comfortable, beautiful,
and "us" by envisioning what we had in mind to suit our
personalities. She took an older home from the 1970's,
stripped it down to the studs, and created a warm and
wonderful home for us. She used our own heirlooms and things
that we love, but helped us pick our favorites to display;
our home looks like it has evolved over the years, even though
we've only been here for a year and a half.
"Jill finds beautiful things that don't cost a lot of money,
she keeps in budget, and she is fun and easy to work with!"
Mark and Cynthia Cope
"My decorating experiences with Jill Helgeson began many
years ago when my husband, Kinly, discovered her talents
when she decorated his office in Clemson, South Carolina.
"Since then, Jill has decorated two offices, three houses
and a barn (for a wedding reception) for my family. She
was even a very dedicated and again, talented, wedding
coordinator to me for our daughter's farm wedding - not
just in decorating the barn, but helping me plan and think
about everything related to the wedding up through the
reception (where she was the lead
spokesperson/get-the-crowd-going-person for her husband's
terrific band, RazzMaJazz).
"I am now in the process of gaining the approval of the
other partners of my beach condo so we can have Jill come
update it, hopefully this year.

that several of them have used her services and have been
delighted with the results.
"Even more than beautiful offices, homes and a barn, I
have gained a dear, dear friend through our work together
on these projects together through the years."

"We have received many compliments about our new house. We
built a custom house in 2006, and Jill did the interior
design. She picked out light fixtures, floors, plumbing
fixtures, rugs, window treatments, wall coverings/colors,
floors, and new furniture. Jill is personable and easy to
work with. Not only does our house look great, but Jill
saved us money by keeping us under our builder’s allowances!
We would recommend her to anyone who is thinking about making
changes to their home."

"As owner of Palmetto Drapery, a custom window treatment and
soft furnishings studio in Anderson, SC, I have had the
pleasure of working with Jill Helgeson for many years. I have
always found Jill to be a top notch professional, and a
pleasure to work with. Jill's goal is to create a beautiful
environment that reflects the unique taste of each client.
Her designs are tasteful, and she does not fall victim to
the "latest trends". Jill Helgeson Interiors will provide
each client with a beautiful home they will be proud of and
enjoy for many years. As a workroom owner, I can trust Jill
to "do her homework". She has never delivered a project to me
with fabrics and/or trims that are unsuitable for the design.
Her excellent communication skills show in each of her clear,
concise work orders. Jill's clients can rest assured that
they will always be treated with respect, and the completed
design will exceed their expectations."
Judy Peters, Anderson, SC
"We want to thank Jill so much for all her wonderful help in
making our newly purchased house an elegant yet warmly
welcoming home! It was such a daunting task looking at
twenty-five to thirty homes in Anderson with our realtor.
But one home really stood out because of the beautiful decor
including exquisite window treatments and rugs. We knew our
search had come to an end finally, and at closing the one
question I really wanted answered was "Who did all the
beautiful work in the house?" The answer from the previous
owner was "Jill Helgeson"! So, of course when the dust of
moving settled, I called her.
"She was such a joy to work with! She really listened to us,
and then worked her magic, integrating our existing beloved
pieces with new pizzazz in the form of the perfect paint
color and gorgeous rugs and drapes. She has such a great
eye, even down to the lampshades and finials on our lamps!
Well, to say we're happy is an understatement! I keep
looking around my house for new projects we can work on
together. A house is never finished, but in our opinion,
with her great work, ours is perfect!! Thanks again, Jill!"
Maryanne and John Pysar, Anderson, SC
"Jill has a great eye for style and for bargains. She helped
us rearrange our home with existing furniture and accessories
to maximize impact and value. When necessary, she made
suggestions for purchases with a practical budget in
mind...unlike many other interior designers in the area. And
you wouldn't believe the compliments we've gotten on our home
since we implemented her improvements! Thanks, Jill!"
