Here’s what others are saying:

What a rewarding experience it was to find SRQ Interior Design to help me with my newly purchased condo.

The adventure all started with a request to frame an oil painting!  Jacqueline presented great ideas in that very first design meeting to enhance my Southwestern collection of art and Native American artifacts.

It was obvious that I had the right designer for my project, since our goals & taste coincided immediately and she was as excited and enthusiastic as I to get started.
Jacqueline was so energetic, patient, full of ideas and nothing was too difficult for her.

By the time we were done, she created beautiful spaces of every room, including finding the perfect furniture, fans and lights, bedding, pillows and accessories, window treatments and even wall colors and grasscloth wallpapers that enhance my art collection.

We redesigned the kitchen and bathrooms which also support my overall theme of native American art.

I find myself walking around my home staring at everything and marveling at how well appointed and beautiful everything turned out.

What a feat! I love my home!

I highly recommend SRQ Interior Design, because Jacqueline designed within my own style, found things that I love which enhance my collection and never would have thought to add on my own.

She was my ally, helped manage the trades and deliveries, was hands on, responsive and was a pleasure to work with.

The result: a beautiful, creative & personalized home.

It would be my pleasure to have any potential client see first hand, what a top of the line designer can accomplish when given the opportunity.

Thank you Jacqueline, you’re the best!



We recently moved to Sarasota, bought a house, and decided for the first time, we would get help to decorate it. As a left brained couple with limited decorative abilities, finding SRQ Interior Design was the by far the smartest thing we have done. We found SRQ Interior Design up front with their fees and worked within our budget. Jacqueline, the designer, was by our side throughout the whole process. She was a lifesaver and turned our house into a “home.” She handled everything from helping us choose paint colors, built-ins, millwork ideas, textiles, making dependable and honest contractor recommendations, taking us furniture shopping, shopping on her own on our request and making returns free of charge. Jacqueline worked with us exclusively throughout the 1½ year process (our timeline). We were amazed at her skillset not only with interior decorating, but with her willingness to step in and personally frame photos or stitch an item.

The best part was that Jacqueline leveraged the variety of international and local travel items that we had collected over the years. This was important as those items held great memories for us. Once we had items physically on-hand, Jacqueline suggested framing, textiles and accessories which made each item come to life. Jacqueline styled each room by making sure every item was in the right place with the right balance. Once Jacqueline got to know us, her decorator’s “eye” was on spot regarding our tastes and style.

Jacqueline is so genuine and down-to-earth; and really cares about making your home fit “you”. Her personality and talent speak for itself. Thank you, Jacqueline and SRQ Interior Design, for making this house our perfect home!

We hired SRQ Interior Design this summer when we moved. Our designer, Jacqueline Paredi, was nothing short of AMAZING! She accomplished things in one day that would have taken us months. She was a wonderful listener and paid close attention when we explained what we wanted (or didn’t). She always respected our thoughts and ideas. Jacqueline worked with our “love” pieces and also added new pieces that made our space more alive…REFRESHED! Jacqueline was a joy to shop with! Fun, efficient and effective. She encourages your feedback at every turn…a simple yes or no, moves the process along and helps her discover your likes and dislikes. If you aren’t physically shopping with her or can’t find what you are looking for at the local stores, she is happy to help locate online. Jacqueline communicates and is happy to share all she knows with you. She strives for 100% customer satisfaction, and you know it! We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jacqueline improving and completing the interior of our newly renovated villa in Osprey. She is extremely organized and synthesized and captured the feeling I wanted to convey in our home: a comfortable, light and relaxed interior with pops of color. She is an incredibly hard and efficient worker who plans the work carefully at the onset of the project and works until every last detail is addressed. She has an excellent cadre of retail and wholesale providers and connections to a myriad of services. I would not or could not have accomplished so much in a short period of time without Jacqueline's guidance and diligent work. I highly recommend SRQ Interior Design!

Jacqueline was so wonderful to work with! She started with a super helpful planning meeting at my home, where we looked at the rooms to be decorated and she listened very closely to my aspirations. She really captured my style and everything I wished for in my space. She is an incredibly hard worker; fast and diligent and great with communication. Her eye for color is amazing, honed by a long career in the fashion industry. I can't wait to have the opportunity to work with Jacqueline again!

After a previous “designer disaster“ Jacqueline Paredi from SRQ Interior Design came to our rescue. With an unparalleled passion she worked patiently with us to fulfill the ambience we envisioned for our home. Through her “hands on” guidance and expertise we now have a beautiful environment that brings a feeling of joy to our lifestyle. We highly recommend this exceptionally talented designer!

I found since quarantine and being home with 4 family members and large dog, that we REALLY needed more space. I contacted Jacqueline Paredi, who I knew already had a gift for interior design, and I hired her to recreate my lanai to what is now a functioning, beautiful outdoor living space! I am so grateful and wanted to share her information for anyone else who may also be feeling a little cramped.
Bonni London
The ladies at SRQ Interior Design are very creative, we love what the did with our lanai. They talked to us about the space and how we wanted to use it. They created three areas; one for dining, a lounge area by the pool and a reading nook. We are really enjoying the new “rooms” on our lanai. I highly recommend Jacqueline and her team.
Kirsten Graham
I absolutely loved working with Jacqueline. I hired her for an initial consultation to get some ideas. Jacqueline worked tirelessly to get the job done. We touched every piece of art and furniture in my house. She was able to transform my living space into a much more livable, lively home that reflected “my personality.” She is resourceful and responsive. If I could, I would give her 10 stars. Well done! Hire Jacqueline, you will be glad you did.

What an inspiring woman! Jacqueline is not only extremely knowledgeable about the industry but she is genuinely organic and motivational when speaking with her. A rare quality that is so refreshing. Thank you!

Jacqueline somehow managed to do a tremendous job on my house in the middle of COVID-19. She and her team observed all the protocols and we have a great result. 10/10 recommended Jacqueline and her team!
Eleanor Cox
We are so happy with our home now. Jacqueline and her team incorporated much of our furniture and pieces with her own thoughtful ideas and the result is a cool breezy inviting home. She has a great sense of style and proportion, yet worked with us and listened. No overcharging, she wants good karma for you and the business. We highly recommend SRQ Interior Design.
Jacqueline Paredi is an exceptionally creative interior designer with distinctive style and taste. We engaged her to assist us in decorating a second home in Florida, and were both impressed and pleased with her commitment, integrity and level of service. She invested the time to understand our aesthetic values and design preferences, and worked with us to visualize and craft a finished product we truly enjoy. Her work is characterized by her insightful attention to detail, design skills and recommendations, knowledge of the broad array of furniture options, artwork and accessories, and exceptional style. We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to create a special space to call home.

We hired Jacqueline to decorate our home after a full renovation. She was able to bring our vision to completion with problem solving skills (tricky floor plan) maximizing every use of space in our home for our comfort. Her experience, clear communication, and ability to stay on budget and schedule, made our project painless from beginning to end.

After a disappointing experience with a previous interior decorator……then enters Jacqueline to assist us with our living room and fireplace. By Christmas, as planned, she transformed the room beautifully. I love working with her and was so impressed with her creativity and abundance of ideas that she is now helping me to update other rooms in our home….she will not disappoint!
Patty and Paul Stehle
Jacqueline Paredi of SRQ Interior Design is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. At our first meeting we knew that Jacqueline was in our corner, she explained what she does, our costs involved and made sure we were all on the same wave length. We already had some furnishings but needed color and accessorizing to bring our home and lanai to life, that’s where Jacqueline excels. Her work is distinguished by her exceptional style, design skills, attention to detail, and experience. We would highly recommend Jacqueline and SRQ Interior Design to anyone wanting a beautiful home. She, indeed, made us very happy, as that was her goal!

Jacqueline at SRQ Interior Design helped us decorate our new home in Longboat Key, and proved to be fantastic. Not only does she have a great sense of design, talent in combining colors, she’s peppy, efficient and responsive. She’s changed the way look at other people’s homes and I now realize that they all need more color. There’s too much beige and brown out there! She uses what we have and adds things and makes it all look so gorgeous. We love our home!

We recently finished building a home in Venice and needed help from a designer. A flooring company suggested we contact Jacqueline Paredi at SRQ Interior Design, and we’re delighted that we did. Jacqueline brings the three main capabilities you look for from a designer: Taste, flair, and a huge database. She has an impeccable eye for colors and arrangements. She combines taste with flair. One of her mantras is, “Let’s mix things up.” If you need design help, give SRQ Interior Design a call. You won’t regret it.
Sharon Whiting & Bill Sullivan
This is not your typical recommendation. Jacqueline and I never met until the job was finished. That was the first challenge. All of the work was done through phone calls and text messages. The second challenge was taking over where another decorator had left off. But she quickly assessed/determined what we wanted based on what had been completed and then dove in. After seeing the results, I truly feel Jacqueline can work with any budget and any look or style you are trying to achieve. Trying to manage this project with 1,200 miles between us was a challenge for both of us. But when I walked into our finished place for the first time, I was truly amazed and felt it could not have turned out better had we been working side by side. Thank you Jacqueline for all of your hard work and turning our place into a dream come true.
Rich Lewis
We were introduced to Jacqueline thru a referral. Best introduction ever. From the time she did her first walk thru and thru the five months she worked with us, nothing but enthusiasm, professionalism and transformation. Our former maze-of-color condo is now a tranquil, comfortable and cozy condo. We highly recommend her for her knowledge and insight. Her hands-on approach is appealing and she is fun to work with.

Jacqueline Paredi at SRQ Interior Design came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We are in the process of relocating our office and needed some assistance with the interior design. Jacqueline made it very easy, advising on color schemes as well as furniture. She worked around my schedule and my budget which is greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this company.

Jacqueline Paredi is an amazing re-designer. As a Realtor I am very selective about who I refer my customers and clients to and I am happy to say Jacqueline did an amazing job with one of my customers who is both selling and buying through me. She was prompt, patient, knowledgeable and extremely thorough with a customer who needed a tremendous amount of help and guidance. I am grateful to have Jacqueline as one of my trusted resources to help not only my customers but also to help make my business run smoothly.

Thank you! A testimonial to all your hard work. We were recently referred to SRQ Interior Design, where we had the pleasure of consulting with Jacqueline Paredi. We are currently in the process of downsizing from our larger house, to a smaller villa. The villa’s living space is very different from our house. Until Jacqueline’s initial consultation, the experience of trying to decorate the villa, and decide what to take from our house, was totally overwhelming and stressful. Jacqueline came to our house to assess our style, and color preferences. With this in mind, she presented us with creative options for the villa, utilizing some of our existing furniture and accent pieces. She also suggested unique and delightful additions for the villa, all the while respectful of our need to maintain a budget. Jacqueline is an innovative, talented professional, who has gone “above and beyond” to assist us. Her expertise in design and redesign is fresh and outstanding. Thanks to Jacqueline’s valuable input, we are now able to look forward to moving into our personalized and comfortable new home. Thank you, Jacqueline!

I had the pleasure of working with Jacqueline from SRQ Interior Design on my home interior wall paint color selection. She consulted me on just the right combination of colors for my home’s interior. I have a beautiful collection of colorful sculpture that I want to showcase, and Jacqueline found dramatic wall color solutions which are different enough from what I had, yet are new and refreshing. She arrived with a full arsenal of color samples, inspirational tools and room color combination images. With her guidance, it was fun process to be guided through to find the perfect colors for me. Jacqueline is patient, creative, and sensitive to my tastes and opinions. I highly recommend her services!

I have had the pleasure of working with Jacqueline Paredi, owner of SRQ Interior Design for staging my residential listings. She is a pleasure to work with and knows just what to say to owners to maximize the aesthetics of their homes. When required, she provides a written staging consultation for my clients to follow. She re-spaces existing furnishings and accessories on the spot, and has a creative and elegant eye. Jacqueline also provides direction and shopping services for new affordable items for the homeowner as needed to enhance their spaces, indoors and out. She is high energy, has made my clients very happy, and has transformed homes dramatically even within her first staging consultation. I highly recommend SRQ Interior Design for residential staging and redesign.

We recently built a new home and Jacqueline helped us through the entire process. She designed areas in our previous home and knew our style and personalities.  At the beginning of the building process she attended the design center with us to pick out every detail of our home.  She listened and guided us throughout that process. Once we got into our new home we continued working with her to make it a home that we love.

We have a foyer area that has a 20 foot tall wall which needed to make a statement since it is the first area you see when entering our home.  We brainstormed many ideas with Jacqueline.  She suggested millwork at first, and then vertical round mirrors.  We decided the most dramatic concept was to combine them and she created this original millwork design.  There were lots of steps to this process but in the end it is beyond stunning!

Jacqueline's knowledge of scale and her creativity made this design come to life.  Thank you for your passion for design.  We love working with you.
