Today we’d like to introduce you to Janelle Kandziora.

​Janelle is the owner and lead designer at Janelle Interiors Design Showroom in Ojai, CA. She specializes in construction design, color consulting, custom furniture, lighting and much more. She has a successful design career furnishing homes all over the greater Los Angeles area, Santa Barbara and Palm Springs Desert communities.

She received her Bachelors of Arts degree from Metropolitan State University of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her degree concentrations were specifically in Fine Arts, Art History and Psychology.

Her career began with 550 Design of Minneapolis where she trained under a senior staff of highly experienced designers. Specializing in residential and hospitality design, her experience quickly brought her to Palm Desert, California in early 2004. Her desert career began with Ambiance Unlimited where she refined her residential design skills and completed the model homes for PGA West’s Greg Norman Estates Country Club.

With an interest in construction design she then joined the luxurious Andalusia Country Club design team and assisted owners in the creation of their dream homes. In 2009 she then opened Janelle Interiors as an independent design corporation and has since designed homes in some of the desert’s premier clubs.

Relocating to Ojai, California in 2012 she opened up her design showroom where clients can view the extensive home furnishing resources. Her design approach is, “Simple but Elegant,” with attention to the planning of space and style. She prides herself in creating a look and feel that coincides with her clients dream or vision in any project.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Absolutely not, but failing is an important part of learning!

Please tell us about Janelle Interiors.
Janelle interiors specializes in construction design. Although through the years, I’ve found that every year presents new projects and I’m always learning and redeveloping my design genre. Recently I finished a winery, guest room project for the Ojai Valley Inn and currently working on a model home project – clubhouse. I have a ton of interesting, diverse projects but that’s why I love interior design – you rarely do the same project twice.

What sets me a part- Basically, I am a hard worker that never gives up and truly care about my client’s needs. Besides from having great taste 🙂 work ethic goes a long way!

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Summer in Minnesota at my parent’s cabin!
