Interiors by Janet (IBJ) is one of the best kept secrets in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. As a degreed Interior Designer with over 30 years of experience partnering with architects and construction managers, Janet Ruffolo now provides her wide array of interior design skills direct to residential clients at a wonderful value. With IBJ, you get tremendous value – luxury at a reasonable cost.
Specifically, we found these things to be extremely beneficial in working with IBJ prior to and during the completion of our new home:
She is a highly competent Interior Designer with extensive contacts who is highly skilled at interfacing with vendors/tradespeople to manage the total execution of her gorgeous designs. She is highly ethical, a strong leader, a keen listener, possesses a very calm demeanor, is truly passionate about helping others, well-organized and highly reliable. She has a wonderful support staff that keeps all projects moving along in a professional manner while keeping us well-informed every step of the way.
For us, IBJ provided Space Planning prior to our move to place our existing furniture in the new home. This allowed us to save money by not having to unnecessarily move pieces we could not use and be forced to dispose of them in a new city. We ordered beautiful custom window treatments that were ready to install just after closing to provide security and beauty to our home. Lastly, we designed custom closets throughout out new home to maximize every inch of storage. She co-created, designed, managed and executed every project with professional and warmth. We knew we were in the best hands. We highly recommend Janet Ruffolo and her company, Interiors by Janet.Heron Bay Residence
You should know that Janet Ruffolo is definitely not your ordinary interior designer! She is an incredibly talented, patient designer who seems to read minds, When we began working together, Janet suggested several ways we could rearrange things we already own promptly created a whole new look to our main living area.
From that moment on we have been captivated and thrilled with the magic that Janet has worked in our home.
Janet listened carefully to both my husband and myself – frequently two very different thought patterns – and then, at our next appointment, she would arrive and present us with choices galore, having beautifully combined our ideas. Fabric samples, paint samples, sketches, and photos, ..all kinds of things gathered together for us to look at and consider in the comfort of our own home.
Janet spent a lot of time shopping for us, suggested places we could shop ourselves, and she also shopped with me! That was a blast! There is nothing like being with such a talented person when you are out looking for just the right item, from an area rug, to a painting, fabric for pillows,..Janet’s creativity is endless! Her attention to detail is fabulous! She has a keen eye far visualizing the final product.

I am writing to share my delight with the services Janet Ruffolo, of interiors by Janet, provided for us on our move. Janet’s services went beyond our expectations as she was able to anticipate and meet needs we had not expected. Her expertise and professionalism benefited us greatly.
Janet personally provided an evaluation of our home belongings prior to our move selecting very wisely items for use in our anticipated new residence. Her advice made our move extremely more efficient and cost effective. We also benefited as Janet provided assistance to us as our belongings were then moved into our new residence. On moving day she met the moving truck, having evaluated the items and done an assessment of our new residence, she directed very efficiently the placement of furniture and belongings that allowed us to be functional in a very short period of time.
She communicated effectively with the moving staff. The services Janet provided made what would have been a very stressful process, smooth and organized.
We then utilized Interiors by Janet and again had Janet’s personal expertise in assisting and directing new furniture purchases and decorating our new residence. She handled measurements, design, ordering, coordination, and scheduling of installers. This was all done with ease, wisdom, and professionalism.
As a result we have been blessed with a beautifully designed comfortable home that goes beyond our expectation, and receives complements from all who enter.

I am writing in support of Janet Ruffolo and her desire to employ her talents to help people in establishing an inviting and hospitable environment in their home and/or their business. Janet is someone I would recommend without hesitation if you have a need to update a room, or decorate any of your spaces.
I have used decorators in several of my residences and vacation homes. When I moved into my current home, I did not see the need to start from scratch, nor did I want to purchase new items. Janet stepped in to help me with staging pieces from four different residences. In one afternoon she directed the professional movers I hired as to the placement of these pieces and used them to the greatest advantage in my space. She came up with novel ways of using a large coffee table that I loved and thought I needed to get rid of.
Though Janet is a gifted decorator, she is also a good listener and friend. She is interested in your ideas and respectful of your budget. From my association with her, the greatest compliment I felt came from my mover. He said that Janet was the easiest decorator he had worked with. When I asked for the reason, he said she was courteous and efficient and so his time was not wasted. I can say too, that with Janet’s help, my time and furniture was put to a better use as well.Lighthouse Point Residence
