Jess Bodamer
Lead Interior Designer - Cape Cod and the Islands

Jess leads our design endeavors on Cape Cod, the Islands, and surrounding areas. Jess began her design career at age 13, specifying paint colors, custom bespoke bedding, and even a custom blended scent for her bedroom in her family's new home. Her passion for design and for creating chic but livable spaces has continued from there. Jess brings to her designs a unique aesthetic perspective, having lived in Paris, Atlanta, and Boston, and having travelled extensively outside the U.S.  She describes her approach to design as a "conversation" between herself, the client, and the home, and specializes in tailoring the final product to speak perfectly to all three parties.  Before shifting to full-time design, Jess practiced as an attorney, a career which has given her unparalleled skills in managing suppliers, contractors, and project timelines, among other things. A graduate of Emory University and The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, Jess might be a washashore, but she adores living on Cape Cod with her two young children.
