Meet Our Team:

Dawn Jacobs
Principal Designer
Kristen Shellenbarger
Originally from the North Shore of IL, Kristen now lives in Bloomfield Hills, MI with her husband Billy and son Stone.  She grew up in the art studios of the Art Institute of Chicago and graduated from Central Michigan University. Kristen is passionate for great design, doodling with good inky pens, eating great meals, traveling and collecting wooden spoons, and loves spending time with her family, dog, and rescue thoroughbred horse. Kristen believes that all great conversations start in the kitchen, especially a well designed one.

Julia graduated from Lawrence Technological University with a degree in business and then went back to school to pursue her love for Interior Design. Born in Bay City, MI, Julia lived in a home of a designer's dream.  The home was built with secret passages and built-ins where not one inch of the house was unused.  This fed her love of design which flowed outside into floor plans created with sticks and fallen leaves.  Having never lost her dream, she now works with Artichoke Interiors creating real life floor plans, turning concept into reality for her clients.

Kathy Ferer

As far back as she can remember, Kathy says home "ambiance" has been a huge part of her life.  Not just decorating for the sake of making things look "pretty," but more for how it makes you feel and how it makes your guests feel.  Your home needs to function effortlessly for you and your family.  She loves to experiment with textures, color combinations, and crossover styles.  Her artistic flair for reviving and combining older pieces with new and fresh items help to meet the challenge of thinking "out of the box" while meeting goals set by her clients.  Kathy feels like a combination of repurposing, remodeling, and rearranging can help get YOUR home's "ambiance" where you want it to be!

​Dawn leads the design team at Artichoke Interiors.  She brings a fresh, practical approach to design with the intent to enhance her clients' lives.  Creating beautiful spaces around each individual's lifestyle helps her deliver on the company motto, "Love where you live."  She runs her business with a "do unto others" philosophy.  Dawn loves to travel and can't imagine life without at least one dog!
Kristy Leahy
