About Jody Sokol & Jody Sokol Design

After taking a job at a furniture store, she went back to school and has been designing for 10 years. One of Jody’s strength’s is the ability to take spaces that her clients are unhappy with and transform them into rooms they no longer dread and are happy to share with family and friends. Her style is casual elegance. She lives, sleeps and breathes all things design. Her love of textile allows her to mix and match beautiful fabrics, patterns and trims to create warm and inviting spaces.
