TESTIMONIALS

"Building our home with Jaque Bethke was a wonderful experience.

Jaque had a keen sense of capturing the essence of our personality and style. She took our vision and breathed life into it. Jaque has an unique, cutting edge style of her own and gave us many fantastic ideas to incorporate into our design. It is rare to find anyone with Jaque’s level of dedication and enthusiasm. A designer with genuine quality and vision." - Z. Schectman

"I hired Jaque Bethke to design my new construction home. She delivered substantially more.

She transformed my general tastes into specific designs and concepts that were perfectly suited to my needs and preferences. She conceptualized and brought to realization many ideas and possibilities that created the unique but very livable home I desired. Her team created all the architectural plans and worked very closely with my builder to make sure her design was executed to her expectation. She sourced many great finishing options to complete her vision from construction materials to furniture and fixtures. During this process, I was impressed with her passion for her work and her desire to deliver a home I would absolutely love. She pays attention to all the details and it encompasses the project from beginning to end." - E. Stowell

Details are an important part of Jaque's philosophy and she has the unique ability to shape and create a house for her clients so it truly is a custom home just for them." - T. McNulty, McNulty Construction Company

"Working with Jaque Bethke was a PURE pleasure!

From the very first moment we talked about creative concepts, the firm distinguished itself by imagining plans that truly took full advantage of the majestic mountain views and the desert landscape. They were professional and responsive when working with a very demanding design review committee – keeping me apprised of discussions and necessary actions. They came up with very creative and dramatic design concepts for the interior of the home, which opened my mind to the possibilities. This is a great team with excellent interpersonal skills and a real commitment to quality!" - F. Emerson

"Jaque has an elegant design style.

She has vision and if you can dream it, she can make it come true. She helped us achieve our desired style - part unique, part eclectic, part classic, part modern - and made it all fit into one super-wired home." - J. Sundaram

"I would describe Jaque as an expert in design and imaginative design ideas

which includes decor, architecture, layout and all that comes with designing an office/home with flare, elegance and/or pizzazz. Jaque took a very ordinary 'B' building and turned it into an exquisite and impressive class 'A' office atmosphere and look." - Jim & Howard

"We truly loved working with Jaque and just loved her as a person.

She became a very special part of our life. Our experience was wonderful and we would recommend it to anyone. We loved her attitude." - Lisa

"Jaque's sense of style is like no other.

I don't know how, but she really knew exactly what I wanted and made it happen, you tell her what your vision is and she takes that and makes it a million times better." - L. Gottstein

"Jaque has a very unique sense of style, and we were immediately drawn to her work.

She is on the leading edge of lighting technologies, and the fixtures she recommends are funky and fun- basically, they are functional works of art. Jaque helped us create a home that we are proud of and love." - Dan & Jami M

"Jaque has a vision of what she wants to create right from the start and stops at nothing to make that vision come alive!

I would describe Jaque as not only massively creative but "creatively unique"! She continually designs details on the job that surprises everyone. "I've never seen that before" seems to be a common phrase by the people around the jobsite." - J. Weber

"We had an awkward expanded space off our casual dining area that I was interested in turning into a bar area.

My walk behind bar did not work in the space, however, Jaque Bethke created a design for a beautiful walk up bar and entertaining space. Her design made maximum use of the space by moving the entry to a storage closet and expanding the space available for the bar countertop and cabinets. Jaque sourced all the materials, and found beautiful accent glass tiles, cabinet knobs and handles and other details that elevated the finished product to a new level. They also advised us of when it was possible to experience significant savings by ordering items directly from internet sites, or by using a local cabinet maker. We are thrilled with the result!" -A. Dings

"Distinctive Custom Cabinetry has been working with Jaque at Jaque Bethke Design for over two years.

Jaque is immensely talented. She brings a creative flair and unique sense of style that is unmatched in our industry. Distinctive appreciates how Jaque Bethke Design can work with a complex palette of materials and colors and bring it together to create one of a kind projects We would recommend Jaque Bethke Design to anyone looking for that designer that will push the boundaries of design." -Marc Poortinga & Mike Cook

"Jaque Bethke designed a one of a kind, magnificent 800 square foot mother-in-law suite above our garage.

Complete with kitchen, full private, bath, sleeping for four with loft, bookcase, library ladder, and creative eating area overlooking a pool. The architectural design is second to none. She beautifully maximized every single square foot of space. The interior design is equally exceptional. She used our existing furniture updated with funky, fun fabrics I never would have chosen myself. I love it. Jaque and her staff are exceedingly professional, qualified and easy to work with. They are good listeners and work very hard to provide exactly what you want but with an added flavor and flair! I can't wait to work with them again in the near future." -B. Brandau

"Jaque was an essential partner with me, my builder and my architect...

to weave together all of our ideas to create a new home that fit in perfectly in a historic neighborhood. The results were glamorous, functional, family friendly, and timelessly elegant—a rare combination and a signature of working alongside Jaque Bethke. I hope I never need to build or remodel or furnish my home without her by my side!" -Bonnie Speer McGrath, Entreprenuer & Edutainer

"The process with Jaque has always been nothing short of outstanding…

she has provided tremendous expertise and leadership in the architectural & interior design process. Her consistent site visits to oversee the work limits many days that are typically wasted waiting for an answer on an unforeseen issue that has arisen. Jaque also helps educate and guide the homeowner throughout the entire construction or remodel process. We’ve all heard the horror stories about the time and budget issues most people encounter in construction, Jaque puts a tremendous effort in to keeping the schedule and budget on point. We count our blessings that we are a preferred general contractor Jaque recommends to her clients as we know from past experiences, the process with Jaque and her team has made every project a pleasure to be a part of and enormously satisfying." - Tim Nelson, Symmetry Builders
