Meet Our Team


Jamie Taylor

Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, Middle Tennessee State University

I am a designer. I like rearranging spaces to see not only how a layout looks but how it feels. Floor plan design has been an interest of mine since I was twelve years old. I spent hours laying out rooms and designing spaces on graph paper as a child, so it was no surprise that interior design and architecture would be my career path of choice. After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in interior design, I worked for a design firm doing architectural work. In 2008, the economy forced me to leave the firm, and I joined Husky Truss and Building Supply. There I learned a great deal about home construction: analyzing house plans for their structural engineering, material take-offs, and truss design. It honed my ability both to create an aesthetically pleasing home and to create a structurally sound home.

Then, in 2009, I started J Taylor Designs and have created relationships with homeowners and builders in the years since. Designing a home is a personal experience for me; I want to make sure the homeowners’ wants and wishes are satisfied, their budget is respected, and the building process is smooth, accurate, and up to code. I am always learning and ready to adapt as my clients’ styles and needs change.

I knew when I was in high school I wanted to be a designer. I loved color and creating beautiful spaces. Little did I know, when I started studying design, I would fall in love with space planning and architecture. Laying out the floor plan for a house became more exciting and intriguing than what furniture would go into the spaces. After my junior year of college, I came across J Taylor Designs. That summer I started a year long journey learning more and more about construction. This journey simply grew my love for residential design.

After my year long internship and receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from Middle Tennessee State University, I decided to continue working alongside Jamie. My knowledge in space planning and exterior facade design allows me to transform my clients’ needs into a home that is livable and beautiful.


Jamie Taylor and her entire staff at J Taylor Designs is absolutely the most talented we have had the privilege to work within recent years. Their ability to structurally and aesthetically design our custom projects is one of our main reasons for success



“We began the process of building our dream house in 2012 and started with basic ideas of a plan we liked. We were referred to Jamie Taylor and she has created exactly what we wanted. Her work is exceptional. Through the process of getting plans drawn, she was always approachable and friendly and did her work in a timely manner. As we are nearing the end of the building process, it has been amazing to watch something on paper come to life and be exactly what we dreamed. We would highly recommend Jamie Taylor to anyone considering building their home.”



Jamie is an exceptional designer who gives great attention to detail. She is patient, letting you know that she understands how important your home is to you. When she is working with you, you feel like you’re her only client – she is just that attentive and responsive! I highly recommend her for all facets of the design process.
My husband and I are building our dream home and had been thinking about what we wanted for over two years. We had poured over Houzz and Pinterest, watched hundreds of hours of home shows, asked friends and family what they liked/disliked about their houses, and discussed in great detail pros and cons of our current home. We knew what we wanted, but not how to put it together. Then we found Jamie! She spent countless hours talking with us in person, via phone and email. She listened to our ideas and helped us sort through all the piles of information we had gathered. She paid attention to what we said and truly seems to understand and share our vision. She has created a beautiful home for us and we are so grateful to have found her! (her assistant Sarah is wonderful too!)



We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with J. Taylor Designs. Jamie has extensive knowledge of both architecture & interior design and an organic understanding of how the two fit together. Jamie puts in the extra time to really understand your vision. She herself visually lives in the space. Her design intuition had her two steps ahead of us throughout the process, anticipating our needs in regards to functionality. We feel fortunate that she designed our home and would highly recommend her. In addition, she is an absolute pleasure to work with!
