Whether you’re looking for an expert opinion on your design project or some snazzy new blinds for your living space, Fresh Space Redesign in Ferndale has got you covered.
Opened by Jennifer Opatz and her husband Andrew in 2015, Fresh Space started as a small window coverings business and has since grown to accommodate home decor and interior design services, launching a new online platform over the summer and a new retail space this September.
“Fresh Space Redesign is all about creating interiors for your lifestyle, and our finished space will do just that,” Jennifer says. “It is exciting to reveal our updated space to the community as it was designed to inspire their next project and to connect them with local resources.”
Design with a Personal Touch
With over 20 years of design experience under her belt, Jennifer loves helping homeowners get in touch with their personal style regardless of what is trendy, hence the company’s slogan: Design Defined by You.
“We are all interesting and unique as human beings,” she says. “Our spaces should be the same way.”
Whether you’re looking for advice on your DIY project or some design expertise, it all starts with a consultation. Advice is personalized per project, with turn-key services that’ll make your ideas a reality. For design consultations, hourly services are a la carte and window covering consultations are completely free.
As far as home decor goes, you can find a mix of old and new both online and in store. Regardless of your style, everything is one-of-a-kind with products from flea markets and local businesses.
Give your home a pop of color or find the perfect statement piece with decorative pillows and throws, magnetic picture frames, bottle openers, vases, and everything in between.
Jennifer attributes much of Fresh Space’s success to community involvement. In the beginning, before there was a brick-and-mortar shop, local networking was key to keeping the business afloat. In 2017, the SICBA Home & Garden Show opened the door for growth, with Fresh Space Redesign securing “Best in Show.”
“We participated in countless outdoor markets and indoor shows. The results were amazing — support from visitors was strong, we connected with a community of talented artisans, and sourced goods for the shop. There truly is nothing more powerful than the support of the community,” Jennifer says.
The new retail space aims to continue supporting the community, giving featured artisans a space to help their businesses grow.
Sustainable practices also play a significant role at Fresh Space.
“Sustainability has been at the heart of our company from the start. When it comes to home interiors, using sustainable products is not the only way in which we can make a difference,” she says.”
By using reclaimed materials and salvaged items, the life of products can be extended by decades, ensuring quality over the long haul and staying true to Fresh Space’s focus on timelessness. 6213 Portal Way, Ste. B, Ferndale, 360.739.7315, FreshSpaceRedesign.com
