Interior designer Jessica Helgerson on the phone in her office. For your own design projects, ask yourself the questions Helgerson asks at the beginning of any project: What’s the best design for the client? What’s the best design for the building or space? What will stand the test of time, stylistically and functionally?

Jessica Helgerson designed this Washington den for clients who wanted to redecorate with sustainability in mind. She chose substantial, grounding pieces and thick, cozy fabrics to create a contrast with the rest of the home, which is airy and light.
