Janet Thomasson and Serena Schupler first met in 2014, when Serena’s oldest son went to a dance with Janet’s youngest daughter. Over time, the moms, Janet and Serena, kept bumping into each other on the lacrosse field. An organic friendship between Janet and Serena grew, each admiring the other’s sense of style and open demeanor. The bond strengthened over time, realizing they had a passion for design in common.
An Indiana native, Janet leveraged her Ohio University degree in business to work in marketing in Chicago and New York, then ran a successful design studio near Annapolis, Maryland. Texas-born Serena earned a liberal arts degree at the University of Texas, Austin and has since worked in New York, in travel hospitality and fashion, spending the last five years in design.
When the timing was finally right, in the Fall of 2020, Janet and Serena went out to lunch and had a lengthy conversation (and maybe a glass or two of Prosecco) about joining forces in a professional way. It was meant to be. Both women had a deep belief in providing an amazing customer experience. They shared a philosophy that it is a privilege to enter someone’s home and refresh—or create from scratch—the private spaces of their family life. The team takes pride in exceptional client service through close collaboration with the architect, builder and homeowner from concept through installation. A focus on timeless interiors, that have a fresh edge, is evident throughout their design vision.
Based in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, just outside of Jacksonville, Thomasson Interiors, also service clients nationwide, and currently do business in Louisiana, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
