ABOUT THE FIRM

With decades of experience, Etch Design Group believes in pushing boundaries to inspire possibility. While creating gorgeous and functional spaces is what comes naturally to us, our first focus has always been the people. We feel that a beautifully designed space is an invitation to fully be ourselves. Great design brings us an experience of the extraordinary.

It’s extraordinary to us that everyday we get to show up to work and contribute to our client’s happiness. And to take risks, push boundaries, and give life to spaces. Mostly, it’s extraordinary to dedicate ourselves to the belief that everyone deserves to experience an environment that gives them a sense of belonging.

At Etch, we envision designs that inspire each guest every day and that impacts all aspects of life... with the ultimate goal to creating happier people.

She received her Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Texas State University, and has been transforming unique spaces ever since. Jessica has been recognized for her outstanding creativity and design aesthetic.

Jessica is known for her love of fabrics and furnishings, and her unique ability to add the perfect finishing touch to every project. Her designs reflect her diverse experience studying architectural history and art in Florence, Italy.

Guiding Jessica through all areas of her life is a belief that we’re shaped by the defining moments in our lives. How we meet them, and move forward from them, helps us understand who we are and what is important to us.  Every single day, Jessica is grateful for the moments and the people who have helped shape and define her, and that list starts with Jessica's remarkable business partner and biggest supporter, Stephanie Lindsey. The list of prominent people in her life goes on and on, but couldn’t be complete without her husband, Scott, their two children, Cameron and Cora, and her 8 year old Golden Retriever, Colt, who she swears acts more like a cat than a dog.  Jessica loves to experience the world through travel, and her study abroad in Florence, Italy will always stand out as one of her all-time favorite memories.
