Gauker Interiors, and joined the veteran design team at Savvy Décor in September of 2009.

Jamie resides in Carmel with her husband, Brian, and two children.
Jennifer O’Connor followed her heart in 1998 when she left her job as a CPA at Ernst & Young to follow her dream of helping others create beautiful homes. She purchased the Expressions Custom Furniture franchise in 2001 and became an independent custom furniture store owner in 2005. As the mother of 2 young children, she decided the hours needed to run a successful retail store 7 days a week where not in line with her family priorities so she closed the store and joined the Design Team at Savvy Decor in 2009.
She understands the busy lives her clients lead and the balancing act performed every day….
“I believe designing a home should be fun, not another thing on your to-do list. I love to work with my clients to find creative ways to make homes beautiful AND functional to fit any kind of lifestyle. Understanding the challenges you face when tackling a design project in your home like, feeling overwhelmed, afraid you may make a mistake or not having a starting point, make me a successful designer. You are not alone. I can help.”
Published projects include: 2010 Indianapolis Dream Home, 2011 Mishingamisa Golf Club renovation in Marion, 2007 Indianapolis Monthly feature, 2006 Indianapolis Business Journal Small Business Profile.
Raised in Northern Michigan Jenn developed her love of art, excelling in the creative aspect of her education. Even as a child she enjoyed rearranging her parents’ furniture and as a young adult she continued to redefine her friends’ homes when they were not looking. It is then she realized the direction of her career path in Interior Design. Jenn began her studies in Michigan and finished her degree at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. It is there she understood that the best designs are not only beautiful, but also highly personalized in both form and function. After earning her degree in Interior Design she spent the next three years specializing in tile design and distribution. Learning that functional floor plans and attention to details can express each client’s individual lifestyle in their interior space. A desire for more personalized design led her to the amazingly talented team at Savvy Decor where she is the newest member. As a designer, with projects from Costa Rica to Indiana, she is confident she can help to create the space of your dreams.
