WHO ARE WE?
We’re a friendly team of creative and experienced designers and installers who are passionate about transforming your home!
Robert Guinan – Creative Director
What I love most about JR is seeing how it has developed from a business run from our spare room to where we are now on the High Street. It has opened so many doors for me, from guest speaking at Grand Designs Live to being a finalist at the 2019 Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards. I don’t get out on the course enough, but I enjoy a game of golf and am looking forward to introducing our girls to it when they are old enough to swing a club without knocking someone out! Fun fact! I used to race motorbikes and am still an avid follower of the sport.
Catherine Guinan – Managing Director
What I love most about JR is the sense of achievement when we completely transform a client’s home, and the growing network of clients who I am now proud to call friends. When I’m not behind my desk at JR I love a good run-round on the netball court, playing for Henlow Hotshots as WD. Fun fact! In my gap year I volunteered with the National Park Service in San Francisco and was privileged to work on Alcatraz, where I met an ex-convict and was allowed to explore areas not open to the general public. As a crime fan (I later became a crime analyst) this was all very exciting!
Jennifer Ings – Principal Designer
What I love most about JR is the combination of creative flair and practical design that my job entails. I find it really rewarding translating a customer’s needs into a workable brief, and then showing them what we can do in a visual and fun way. I love all things interiors, but also enjoy drawing, knitting, painting and music. My background is art & design, and I recently completed a large wall mural in my daughter’s bedroom! I plan to one day build my own family home!
Claire White – Office Manager
What I love most about JR is being a part of people’s home transformations, where a beautifully designed, functional space creates harmony, fun and better living for the family. I love to see before and after shots that showcase the dream turned in to reality! Personally, I am interested in Eastern philosophies & after having my son went to University to gain a Philosophy degree!
Lenice Joubert – Marketing and Social Media Assistant
What I love most about JR is the opportunity to work creatively in a collaborative environment, not only with our team but interacting with our lovely clients who truly keep up the local spirit! I am currently working on my Digital Marketing degree, and class myself as a bookworm (you can find me on Goodreads!) and have a passion for photographing people & places.
