I have had the pleasure of working with Jill Gruner twice now. The first time, she helped me redecorate my formal living room, family room, kitchen, and dining room. She selected beautiful paint colors, gorgeous fabrics for drapes, selected area rugs that not only look beautiful but are “work horses” that will stand up to kids and a black lab. She also arranged my built-in shelves with items I already owned. I always thought I had a good eye for decorating, but she took my display shelves to a whole new level without spending anything!

We decided to downsize this spring, and put our house on the market. I believe that it is because of Jill’s decorating, that we sold our house in 11 days! Before we even closed on our brand new house in Cedar Park, I contacted Jill again. Once again, she selected paint colors that are beautiful. The builder had painted the entire house the same color, including the ceilings. After living in a house that Jill had decorated, I just couldn’t live with one color. We rented back our house for one week, and in that time Jill again worked her magic. We have been in our house for one month now, but it looks like we’ve always been here. Jill knows the best sub-contractors, has THE BEST WORKROOM for fabrics and they turn out THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRAPES EVER! She uses Mike, a really great guy to hang those beautiful drapes, and who also hung all our artwork, and installed hardware in our kitchen and baths. My family room with gorgeous drapes and new built-in glass shelves looks like something out of a magazine, but in a relaxed family atmosphere.

Jill is so easy to work with. She communicates well, and answers phone calls and emails in a timely manner. I not only have an excellent designer, I also have a great friend! Thanks Jill for everything!

“Nine Design Group is patient, personal, flexible and easy to communicate with. They have an incredible sense of style. Artists!” “I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on the dining room and kitchen cabinets. I look at those glazes daily and think how much I like them.”

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!! You were so helpful, flexible, and professional through the entire process. I could not have done it without your expertise and eye for color. I look forward to working with you again real soon.

I have been more than pleased with all the services you have provided, whether it be home staging, design consultation or paint selections. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

I came across your card today as I began ‘January’ cleaning. I put it away in a safe place for me to refer to when I get to the ‘bedroom job’.

I just wanted you to know that all your great advice paid off! I have a lovely off-green kitchen…no more wallpaper…beautiful granite countertops, new appliances, etc. etc. We used Julio for the wood flooring and I changed the look of accessories in many places, as you suggested!

It looks like a new house and so lovely. I had so many compliments on it as we entertained over the holidays!

So I just wanted to say “thanks again”…and one day, when I build up a new ‘nest egg’, I’ll get to the paint in my bedroom. I need to take a breather for now…but felt you might enjoy the positive feedback.

Take care and thanks again for your helpfulness. I know we’ll visit again in the future!

We needed a floor to ceiling extreme makeover to get into the new millennium. Nine Design Group’s team effortlessly developed a color scheme and materials list to bring about an efficient project. You say “that’s what a design team is supposed to do”. The part that I didn’t know is that the savings in materials and even subcontractors that Nine Design Group was able to get for us, easily saved us 4 times the design fees. We couldn’t be more pleased with the project. Thank you!

Thank you Jill for making my office just the way I wanted it to be. You were very accommodating and flexible from start to finish. I am enjoying my office everyday and very pleased to hear compliments from our patients about the color scheme,the floors and how everything is put together so well. Thank you so much for everything and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

Again, thanks for your help. I think I should record you when you come over so I can remember all your ideas!

Our experience with Nine Design has been wonderful! Jill has been able to help us create our ideal home, all the while keeping our overall design plan in line with our budget as well. She is timely and professional and has made the process extrememly enjoyable. It has been our pleasure to work with Nine Design, and we look forward to more projects in the future!

David & Amy Reinarz, Austin, Tx

Nine Design Group was friendly, extremely helpful, and upfront about everything from decorating decisions to financial aspects. They provided ideas, websites for purchases of all kinds of fixtures, designed a marvelous display cabinet for an entire wall, guided our choice of color schemes, helped with the hiring of a contractor, designed layouts for wall decorations and furniture placement, and in general was absolutely indispensable! The end result was perfect – exactly what we had in mind, even though we didn’t know it at the time!

Dixie S.

Nine Design Group was able to come into my home and within minutes she gave me suggestions on the various color schemes available. Her eye for color, spatial designs, and style brought it all together for me. There were some things they said that didn’t fit for me and she was fine with that – they didn’t want me to use their style – but my style. That was refreshing! She actually saved me money and time.

Jill helped us with the design elements of a major remodeling of a home that we purchased, including paint, carpet and lighting selections, designing custom built-in cabinets, and shopping for furniture, among many other things. She is wonderful to work with! She was very interested and patient in helping us to find the right style for us and for our home! She was especially helpful in getting my husband over his fear of “commitment” to a paint color. She has great taste but is also practical when it comes to where the best places are to spend money. Now, that we’re in, we’re looking forward to the fun of decorating it with her. Thanks, Jill – we couldn’t have done it without you!
