Our Principal, Jennifer DesJardin, is an award-winning Interior Designer and Construction Project Manager. A 20-year-plus industry veteran, Jennifer's work has been featured on HGTV's House Hunter's Renovation and in many design publications including LUXE Interiors & Design, Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, 5280 Home's Top Denver Design, Golf Digest, House Beautiful, and Elle Decor. Her interior design experience expands to design build, home remodeling, multi-family, hospitality and custom home design, along with a degree from University of Florida in Architectural Interior Design. With a humble garage-start in 2008, Jennifer has grown the company to be one of Denver's leading professional design firms. While the team has grown, the firm intentionally remains small to allow MOTIF to have a dedicated and strong working relationship with each client.


Construction Superintendent

A seasoned professional, Jose is a jack of all trades! He first began his career at an HVAC company where he perfected his skills for 13 years. He has been working in the home remodeling industry since 2014 and joined MOTIF in 2018 because of his passion to build transformative projects across the greater Denver area. At MOTIF, you’ll often see him at a job site with the construction team helping with every aspect of the construction process. As a talented carpenter, his forte is building beautiful custom cabinetry. Jose is a dedicated family man with 5 children. His favorite travel destination is Cancun -- and he enjoys longs walks with his dog Reina, reading, and making home-made chili rellenos in his spare time.



Senior Interior Designer

Emily is passionate about creating spaces that inspire people to interact with their environments and that harness a sense of place. Her design is influenced by her strong affinity for classical architecture, time spent in Florence and Rome, and formal studies which include a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Colorado and a Masters of Architecture from University of Colorado Denver. As a Colorado native, Emily enjoys Colorado's beautiful outdoors, time with her dog, Sadie, reading historic fiction, and water coloring.


Project Coordinator

Everyone who knows Garrett, loves Garrett. His demeanor brings calm to a room and a project, and we’re grateful for his relentless dedication to a job well done! His motto is to “live one day at a time,” and we love this approach as he tackles the job site and projects accordingly. Garrett handles the large part of the renovation process for the team, to include cabinetry and fabrication. His passion is to see all the different components come to life in the design/build & remodeling processes, and even enjoys wood working in his spare time. Other passions include photography, reading fiction – specifically Stephen King - and enjoying the seasons of Colorado. A team player who likes to focus on the “now,” we’re glad to have him as a part of MOTIF!

I have hired MOTIF several times over the past 10 years, on several projects, and have always been blown away. Whether I was flipping a house in Brighton on a super-tight budget, or finishing my own basement in Denver, to a revamp of a tired mountain cabin, every project I've sent them has finished on time, on budget and better than I expected. It's like they read my mind and delivered something I couldn't have described. Their background in architecture shines through, and I honestly believe Jennifer is a visionary in the design world. She sees trends emerging several years before the trade publications get to them, and it helps make their designs truly stand above the rest. I cannot ...
