It was such a pleasure working with Jill. She transformed my house in a matter of hours! She has a wonderful staff and is extremely helpful and flexible with all aspects of the job.

When we were putting our home in upper Nuuanu on the market, we interviewed a number of staging companies. We were looking for a mature, high-end look-and-feel that would complement our home. Jillian’s initial concepts and portfolio were far superior to anything else we looked at. And her actual staging was amazing. She is very professional and knowledgeable, brings a strong artistic background to the project, and meets her deadlines and commitments. A joy to work with, and her staging has that je ne sais quoi that brings out the best in a home.

Interior designer, contractor, artist, Jillian does it all with a smile and a positive attitude! Jillian patiently listened to what I had in mind for my home, which was to use as much of the existing structure as possible and modernize an older home into a more contemporary home. She did a beautiful job! I get many compliments on the work she did. Jillian really has a gift of being able to see what your house could look like and putting it all together piece by piece. Not having much experience in this area, Jillian patiently guide me through the process of selecting not only furniture, but painting the interior and exterior, tile and hardwood floor selection, interior furnishings, etc. She even painted my centerpiece painting and assisted with the landscape design! What a blessing it was to work with Jillian! My home came out much nicer than I would have imagined. I would highly recommend Jillian to help you with your home!!

Jillian Inouye of Inouye Interiors staged our $1M+ home in Mililani Mauka and our home sold about six weeks later. Our home had been on the market for about 5 months before we had Jillian perform the staging. My only wish is that we would have had her do the staging earlier. While there was a cost involved in staging, it did not compare to the cost of letting the home sit empty. Jillian was very professional, demonstrated a great creative capability, and made the home look even nicer than when we lived there. There were no negative surprises. Thank you Jillian and our best wishes to you and your company!

“Our company, Prestige Realty LLC, had secured a gem of a listing on Hawaii Loa Ridge which sat on the market for awhile, due to a glut in inventory. Deciding to kick things up a notch, we hired Jillian Inouye-Guthmann to lend her creative flair. From the start, Jillian was the consummate professional, personable and articulate, who listened carefully to our needs and was willing to work with our fixed budget. Employing her expertise to rearrange the furniture, she introduced stunning pieces and personal touches to add an elegant dimension to the home with such attention to detail. Her tasteful re-imagining of the property served to showcase the beauty of the house, helping potential buyers envision living there. Thanks to Inouye Interiors, our listing received the kind of attention we knew it was worth, garnering numerous attractive offers which we are working with now. It’s amazing what a difference hiring a talented staging professional can do for your property. We would highly recommend Jillian’s service in a heartbeat; it’s an investment well spent, and we look forward to working with her on all our future listings.”

I Enjoyed working with Jillian very much. She did a great job staging our house that we had listed for sale. The house really popped out once you walked through the front door and this lead to a sale the first week along with 3 back-up offers! It also sold for over asking!
Jillian has a very easy going personality and is very open to listening to what look that you are trying to achieve. I would highly recommend working with her. My Seller was also extremly pleased with what she was able to achieve.

“I hired Jillian Inouye to do my daughter’s house in Hawaii Kai. She did such a beautiful job, I wish I were living there instead. Everything she chose went well with the color scheme of the home. She has an eye for matching things, putting it together and in the end it really does come out so beautiful!!! I would highly recommend Jilll to anyone who needs an interior designer. She really brought the home to life. I told her what I wanted and she put everything together like a puzzle. I am so pleased with what she has done for the home. Excellent work!!! Highly recommend her to do your home!!!!”

Jillian is a true professional. I’m a real estate agent who hired her to stage my personal house for sale. Not only did my house show perfect, other agents in our town were also amazed at how my house was transformed from ordinary to extraordinary. Jillian added extra dollars to my sales price. She is a true professional in her field.

We had been trying to plan the renovation of two rooms for years but could never seem to get the project started. Jill brought a sense of order and design to our home that swept through the rest of the house and turned our huge project into something exciting and manageable. Not only were we thrilled with the results of her design, her choice of color and her understanding of our needs, we were equally impressed with her joyful and calming presence. Instead of dreading our next home renovation, we are absolutely looking forward to the opportunity to working again with Jill. We would highly recommend her as a designer who offers a complete service from consultation to installation.

I hired INOUYE I N T E R I O R S to transform my average listing into a multi-million dollar listing. Jillian far surpassed my expectations by creating a master piece that “wowed” all the prospective buyers of the property. The furnishings and accessories were first class and the artwork were originals that were created specially for this property. I am so happy that I called INOUYE I N T E R I O R S as they helped me sell the house in under 30 days!

Jill designed our bathroom based on what we wanted and it turned out more beautiful than we initially envisioned. We enjoy it so much.

Thank you for a fabulous job of your partial staging of our custom home at 1948 Piimauna Place. Our first Broker’s Open was a huge success and it felt great to receive many kind words on how the property showed and was staged. You did an excellent job and Heidi and I would like to thank you on behalf of our client.

When we decided for a new office we sought for INOUYE I N T E R I O R S to maximize the use of the workspace. With her systematic approach, Jil analyzed our needs, mentored us in finding a shared vision and visualized alternatives. Jil led us to the best choices within a budget less than we expected. She directed and coordinated significant changes in office infrastructure (i.e. moved dry walling, glass dividers, air conditioning, flooring), designed a new kitchen and custom furnishings.

My partner, the craftsmen and I were impressed - she is easy and fun to work with. It seemed effortless how she ensured the results in time and budget. INOUYE I N T E R I O R S created a unique workspace for us – my clients related the quality of the space with our values/ brand, my colleagues enjoyed the space and it felt like the office had an immediate impact on our company identity.
