Designer profile: Jessica Duce

The Monogram Experience Center brings designers to Louisville, Kentucky, for three-day experiences to learn about Monogram, the design process, our appliances – and even cook with them! We interviewed each designer to learn a little more about their background and design experiences.

Today’s profile highlights Jessica Duce from Designers Touch in Omaha, Nebraska.

SRFD: How did you become interested in design?

Jessica: I grew up with Design. My mother was an Interior Designer. I remember helping her haul sample books when I was 12. We would watch movies and discuss the decorating and design elements, but forget the plot.  I guess it’s in my blood.  🙂

SRFD: Tell us about a recent project you really enjoyed.

Jessica: I recently completed a kitchen remodel. The transformation is stunning. And of course I had to introduce them to Monogram and the Advantium. They love it. We also introduced fridge and freezer drawers in the center island to create a “kid zone.”

SRFD: A trend you’re over?

Jessica: I know Chevron is great and fun, but I am tired of seeing it. And we need a burlap break.

SRFD: A trend you’re excited about?

Jessica: I love the Pantone color of the year – Marsala. I gravitate to warm colors and even just a pop seems rich. Also, it reminds me of my wine roots growing up outside Napa, California.

SRFD: What did you learn in Louisville?

Jessica: Louisville was amazing. I feel a kinship like loyalty to the values and responsibility that GE holds and maintains. The integrity, creativity and dedication really impressed me.
