Tera is such a talent!  We have worked with her on two major projects.  The first was a complete redesign of our front entry and addition of a main-floor laundry room.  We loved her work on that project so much, we brought Tera back a few months later to design and coordinate a 1500 sqft basement renovation of our home, creating a stunning guesthouse apartment that works beautifully for both us and our guests!  She is our absolute go-to designer for any future projects.  ||  Curt + Ardyth 


Tera’s attention to detail, professionalism, exceptional communication, and wonderful eye for design are the reasons I love Tera Janelle Design.  My recent whole-home renovation went seamlessly, largely due to Tera’s efforts and skill.  I will be a Tera Janelle Design client for as long as I live in Lynchburg.  Tera was the first person I hired for my renovation, and I would definitely recommend her to friends, family, and colleagues who are considering renovation and/or redecorating.  The final reveal was delightful.  Tera’s final Project Guide [resource] is incredible, and undoubtedly her expertise has added exceptional value to my “new” home.  ||  Adam 

Tera’s the best, she is a very talented designer. Super down to earth and approachable. She helped us making multiple selections and finishes for our new custom home, and designed a beautiful kitchen backsplash for us. We discovered her later in our build, but if we had to do it over again, we would’ve involved her at the very beginning of the design/build process. We will definitely be using her in the future!  ||  Sean + Kathy  

Tera Janelle Design was an absolute pleasure to work with on our small project.  Our long-distance experience in planning the [furnishings and] design of our new living and dining rooms was seamless and very efficient.  The team was so warm and easy to communicate with through the entire process, and we were thrilled to finally meet them at the final reveal when we arrived at our new home in Virginia.   ||  Claire + Jeff  

We called Tera for a much needed renovation of two bathrooms, an entryway, and laundry room.  She came highly recommended by one of my friends so I was excited to work with her.  From the second I met Tera and her design team, I felt comfortable.  They are warm and engaging and immediately had great ideas for my spaces... She is a great communicator and responded immediately to my questions and ideas.  We used a builder that she recommended. The design and build was so easy because Tera gives the builder everything they need and then makes sure everything is executed according to her design. 


The final "reveal" is something Tera and team work very hard for.  They did not let us peek at our spaces the last few days and then spend a whole day staging and prepping for us to see the final product.  It was exciting and fun and we were all blown away by the finished work.  I love that the rooms are completed all the way to art on the walls and towels hung.  She even used a fabulous local artist!  I cannot recommend Tera Janelle more highly. We will be using her for our future projects for sure!  ||  Mike + Sarah  

My husband originally suggested I contact Tera Janelle Design for a consultation to choose paint colors in our new home. But once she came over, I knew she would help our full renovation design vision come to reality.  She designed a very spacious layout for our master bedroom/master bathroom remodel. She also designed our kitchen remodel and our son’s bathroom.  She embraced any ideas I had, but incorporated her design expertise, for a polished look. When choosing various design choices, she always presented options within our budget and maintained timely communication throughout our project.  It was a pleasure to work with the team and I highly recommend Tera Janelle Design for your next home remodel!  ||  Simone + Brian  

Working with Tera was nothing short of amazing. We felt comfortable with her from the moment we called her, and that trust was reinforced when she came to our home. She not only took our ideas and made them come to life, she respected our budget and our personal style and brought to our home what we never imagined would be possible. Even our 2 year old says “I like new house!” We’re so thankful for her and are looking forward to working with her again!  ||  Jason + Missy 

Working with Tera Janelle Designs was a great experience.  We had an idea of what direction we wanted to go in and Tera help us arrive at our dream kitchen!  She understood our style and gave us options that we would have never considered without her help.  Tera and her team were very easy to communicate with and were always prompt in responses to emails and texts.  Meetings were always on time and they did a great job working around our schedule.  It was a pleasure to work with Tera Janelle Design and we cannot wait to work with them in our future projects! ||  Meredith + Travis 

Working with Tera has been an excellent experience.  At very short notice she was able to organize several last-minute projects on our house, continuing to coordinate and oversee contractors after we had moved out of state.  We were confident that we had left the house in good hands. Her cheerful and considerate nature make her a pleasure to work with and we really appreciate her willingness to jump in and take care of whatever was needed, helping to turn around an otherwise very stressful situation.  Thank you, Tera!  ||  Jessie + James 

Our home had been on the market for over 2 years and we had no offers. We had moved out of state for a job and our home just hadn’t sold.  Finally we called Tera.  Throughout the whole process of getting work done on our home, communicating with Tera was an absolute delight. She was ALWAYS so upbeat and encouraging—which meant the world to me! I cannot say enough good things about the end result!  Amazing doesn’t do it justice. Tera would send me preview pics and videos along the way—which were so helpful—as being states away from our home, I wasn’t able to see the progress unfold in person.  Tera’s frequent texts, calls, and emails really helped me feel included in the whole process. And if all this was not enough, before our home even went on the MLS to be listed for sale, we received a full price offer on our home!  Two-years on the market with no offers, and after working with Tera, we were under contract in less than 24 hours!  We absolutely couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you, Tera!  ||  Janessa + Isaac  

​We are constant returning clients for Tera Janelle Design! Tera designed our living area and kitchen for a fantastic final reveal. We appreciated Tera taking our budget, styles, and taste into consideration to create a space that felt both stylish and comfortable. We also used Tera a year later to design and create a new master closet into our bedroom. The project snowballed into electrical updating, exposing our brick chimney, custom cabinets and more! Each challenge in our 1930's home she met with a solution better than we could have ever dreamed. We have more storage than we thought possible, plus a room that we never want to leave! ||  Dave + Audrey  

Tera Janelle Design was everything, and then some, I wanted in a designer.  She was, at all times, professional, personable, and honest.  I came to completely trust her instincts.  We particularly appreciated her sensitivity to budgetary constraints and her willingness to find those items that were both beautiful and cost-effective.  Tera went above and beyond by finding the perfect items, answering all my questions, offering extra help, and tailoring our design project and items to the nature of our place.  Her attentiveness to detail and alignment with existing space design was amazing and very much appreciated. It has been two months and I still can't wait to get home every night to be in our space.  She truly transformed our house into a home!  ||  M.E. Lowe 

Working with Tera Janelle Design was a dream come true.  We love great comfortable design, but when it came to decorating our home, we didn't quite know how to put it together.  I was fortunate enough to see the work she did for a friend, and I instantly knew we wanted [Tera's] talent and expertise.  Not only did she listen to our wants and our needs, she got them, and sometimes better than we did!  Tera made the process comfortable, fun, and exciting.  We love everything about our new spaces and are already thinking of our next project with Tera Janelle Design.  ||  Robbie + John
