The Work

Services

Luxury Full Service

Our Luxury Full-Service package is the most comprehensive design package offered at JSD. We plan and manage all aspects of your project from concept to completion. Projects that work best with this package include full home renovations, kitchen and bath remodels, or a full re-design of individual rooms including but not limited to, living rooms, dining rooms, or master bedrooms. With this package, we’ll help you achieve a beautiful, customized look complete with fabrics, furnishings, or custom drapery.

This package is a good fit if:

  • You are a busy, hardworking professional that wants a beautiful home, but does not have the time to shop, design, or manage a home project.
  • You prefer to trust the process and leave it to the design professionals.
  • You have never renovated before and need a trusted team to guide you through the process from start to finish.
  • You want a custom look, achieved by using fabrics, textures, and high-quality furnishings & finishes.

MODIFIED DIY PACKAGE

This package is best for those that need the guidance of a design professional to achieve a desired look but may not necessarily need the project management or furnishing procurement aspect. With our modified DIY package, clients receive the same attention to detail as our full-service clients. However, the difference is the client will be executing all furniture purchases, installation, project management and styling. We provide the overall design concept, floorplan/layout, and retail product source sheets so that you and/or your contractor can make purchases and implement at your convenience.

This package is a good fit if:

  • You do not have a design eye, but don’t mind purchasing items online and implementing on your own.
  • You struggle with making decisions and don’t want to waste your time or money purchasing furnishings that are not cohesive.
  • You’ve been working on your DIY project for a while, and just need it completed.
  • You don’t have the time or energy to shop online or you may feel overwhelmed by all the options.

HOURLY BUNDLE PACKAGE

For projects that do not fit the scope of our full service or modified offerings, we offer hourly bundle packages. This package allows you to work with a designer who can help you accomplish miscellaneous design tasks. The minimum investment is twenty hours and can go up from there depending on the scope of work.

This package is a good fit if:

  • You have a few different rooms you’d like to refresh, but you are not fully furnishing or renovating those spaces.
  • You need assistance finalizing finishes for a kitchen or bathroom renovation.
  • You have design tasks that may include paint color selection, flooring selection, drapery updates, or accessorizing.

Meet sara

Sara established JSD in 2017 while craving a more rewarding and creative career outlet. After working for industry healthcare leaders such as the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the Cleveland Clinic, Sara was ready to transfer her skills to her entrepreneurial venture. Her previous roles in patient care and project management has taught her how to be highly organized and meticulous while also empathic and compassionate for others.

Being a mother and a wife has taught her that life is messy, unexpecting, and fun! Designing for families are her favorite projects using earthy palettes with pops of color, curating repurposed or vintage finds with modern elements, and of course adding in texture and art of all kinds.

When Sara isn’t designing for clients, she’s usually on adventures with her husband Scott, her two children Kendall Jade & Kylin Scott, and their dog Honey. Practicing self-care of all kinds, hiking in the hills of Frick Park, and repurposing vintage furniture finds are some of her favorite past-times.

TESTIMONIALS

Sara was super kind. She didn't judge me for how my house looked or for my complete lack of knowledge about everything related to home decor! Sara made everything as easy as possible.

Jade Scott Design made us feel like we were their most important client.

Sara took our confusing open floor plan and made it better than we imagined. Our new room is perfect and makes us so happy every time we are using the room. Our friends and family love it too!

I previously contracted Jade Scott Design to decorate and procure furnishings for an upscale apartment in the Pittsburgh area. Could not be more pleased with the service that I received and how amazing the finished product was. My experience was above excellent and painless.

The best part about JSD is you can make the projects affordable, but still beautiful with high quality products. I really enjoyed the option of being involved in shopping, but that I didn’t have to be. The whole experience was so positive, and way more fun than I thought it would be!
