Our Clients Say

  • We worked with Minka McDonald and Beth Walker-Fenton on our winter home in The Colony in Bonita Springs. We were new to the SW Florida area and were working from afar, so we were fairly nervous about the process. No need, Minka and Beth were a complete delight to work with. They listened to our ideas and then made them better than we could have imagined. They are professional and creative and we are thrilled with the results. I would hire them again without hesitation.

    The Colony
  • Both my wife and I had such a wonderful experience with Beth & Minka. On budget and on time is not something you hear that often in the construction business. I know this to be true as I am in the construction business. We closed on our condo in September and the next day Beth & Minka were in the unit working. There were quite a few things to do even though it was brand new. Electric, Moulding, Painting, Wall Paper, Lighting, Fans & of course all the Furniture. Their communication with us could not have been any better. We live in New York and they were emailing pictures and questions as they made progress. We came back to see the finished home in November. It was exactly what we wanted our Naples home to feel like.

    Talis Park
  • Chrissy & Janine did an exceptional job. Very organized in presenting their ideas and recommendations. They listened to our input/ideas and did a great job incorporating them into the finished product. The process went very smoothly. The installation of furniture, flooring, window treatments, painting, molding, accessories, etc. were all supervised by Chrissy & Janine. No detail was overlooked. The installers were very neat & professional working together producing a beautiful finished product. We highly recommend Jinx McDonald Interior Designs to anyone looking for a top notch interior design firm in the Naples/Ft. Myers area.

    Talis Park
  • We are delighted with the relationship we developed with the professionals at Jinx McDonald. Minka McDonald, together with Beth Walker-Fenton, listened carefully to our objectives and immediately understood our goals. They brought tasteful proposals and produced an overall design plan which works perfectly for our mid-rise condo space. They introduced us to just the right suppliers of flooring, counter material, closet specialists, wall covering professionals and they made wonderful furniture and finishing selections. They provided project oversight, as we were away during the renovation process, and they proved to be a very helpful liaison between us and our contractor. Our renovation went smoothly and was right on schedule all the way. We are thrilled with the end result - which feels both spacious and elegant and we are proud to recommend them to our friends and neighbors. Would we choose them again? In a heartbeat!

    Gulf Shore Blvd N
  • We worked with Beth of Jinx McDonald Interior Designs and could not have been more pleased. I cannot say enough good things about Beth. She was really amazing. She listened to our ideas, she stayed within our budget and most importantly she got the job done! She always made time to meet with us when we were in town. It is difficult to do this type of project long distance but Beth made it all so easy! She has transformed our house in Naples into our "HOME" in Naples. Truly amazing!

    Lely Resort
  • The Jinx McDonald group with our lead designer, Chrissy Howard plus Barbara Dale, are absolutely – without question – the most down to earth designers I have ever worked with. Their attention to construction details are right on track, leading up to the finished product. These girls put tennis shoes and jeans on and are all over making sure each inch of the construction site is used to its full potential.

    Isles of Capri
  • My husband and I were assigned Beth at Jinx McDonald Interior Designs to decorate and add internal finishes to our new-build condo in Naples. I really cannot say enough good things about Beth and the entire team at Jinx McDonald. I am an extremely picky person and wanted to be heavily involved in the process (a barrier with some interior design companies). It was made clear to me that the company would be equally happy to work alone, or with me. Initially, I was concerned that attempting to get our condo decorated at arm’s length (we are in the UK) might end in tears, but my fears were entirely unfounded. Beth and I worked together while I was visiting Naples to pick out fabrics, furniture, built-ins, lighting, etc. and then she continued the process while I was home in England. She welcomed my input and went above and beyond to make sure that I would be happy with the final result. As well as doing an outstanding job, the entire team at Jinx McDonald was warm, friendly, and helpful and I have a feeling we are going to be friends for life. In summary, we could not be happier with the condo and we would have complete confidence in highly recommending this company.

    Talis Park
  • We worked with Chrissy and Barbara of Jinx McDonald Interior Designs and could not have been more pleased and satisfied. With their experience, guidance, and encouragement, we got exactly the new home we hoped for. And equally important, we were so fortunate to deal with such wonderful, trustworthy ladies. They have all become valued friends.

    Fiddler’s Creek
  • We worked with Minka from Jinx McDonald and we could not be happier. She worked with our budget and style to create a magazine quality condo. We started with bare walls and ended up with a real showplace. Everything was timely and her selections were exquisite. We recommend her 200%! And the best part was we sold the condo – fully furnished – for a very nice profit within one year. We have since purchased a new place in the area and we will definitely work with Minka again. She’s easy to work with and very talented. We highly recommend.

    Bonita Bay
  • We have been working with Jinx McDonald’s firm for two years and have been more than happy with the process and the results. They have been wonderful helping us get our new home furnished and filled with color. We are currently working with Chrissy Howard on our massive outdoor project. They are easy to work with and have an eye for the fabulous touch we wanted in our home. We look forward to our continued partnership with Jinx and Chrissy.
