Thoughtful Interior Design

Have nothing in your house which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
— William Morris

Whether you’re looking to refresh, restyle, or completely reinvent any space in your home, The Gilded Elephant will work with you to create something you’ll love.


Interior Decorator Jen Novak believes in the importance of partnering with her clients to provide an experience that is both gratifying and exciting, and ultimately leads to a finished design that will exceed your expectations. With an M.A. degree, Jen has years of experience engaging with clients and understands the value of a collaborative effort between designer and client. The process should include input from the client through every step of the journey no matter the size or scope of the project.

Thoughtful design is more than just incorporating beautiful textiles and furniture into a home, it’s a process that considers the feeling a client wishes to experience when in a space. Function and livability are as important as beauty. Jen guides her clients in creating a vision together, one that will lead to a space that is truly unique to each client.

Gilded Elephant Home Design and Décor is an interior decorating service, with options ranging from one time consultation to full project design. Jen has a passion for infusing color and pattern into her work while blending reinvented vintage pieces within décor. Jen believes in mixing old with new, that there should be no “rules” in design, and that if you love something – it can work!
