Our Clients Say

  • I can't say enough about Jinx McDonald Interior Designs. From start to completion of my project they were simply a FANTASTIC design firm to work with!! I had a phone consult with Minka McDonald and after discussing the look and feel I wanted for our Naples Florida home she assigned me to work with Janine Blume who was just amazing to work with, my project was also done from a distance. We did most of everything via emails and face time. The process was literally seamless. Janine Blume was incredibly organized kept my project rolling and completed it on schedule. Amazing group to work with!!! Highly recommend Jinx McDonald Interior Designs and Janine Blume!!

    Winding Cypress
  • Minka and Beth have excellent taste, great design ability, high energy and are a pleasure to work with. They provided great service in our limited timeframe and we were very pleased with the businesses that they contracted with.

    Park Shore
  • Janine Blume was amazing. I saw another home she had designed and I knew she was the designer for me. The coastal interior design in my home is perfect. She listened and knew exactly the feeling we were looking for in our home. I can't say enough about how happy we are and how much we love our home. I highly recommend Janine!

    The Isles of Collier Preserve
  • Chrissy Howard and Barbara Schwenk of Jinx McDonald Interior Designs did an outstanding job for us. We would highly recommend them. They know what they're doing and are easy to get along with. Moreover, they finished our extensive renovation on-time and on-budget. It doesn't get much better than this!

    Olde Cypress
  • We just finished our second major project with Minka from Jinx McDonald. This time, she magically transformed our new home in Bonita Bay. We couldn’t be happier. As before, she exceeded our expectations and again we have an exquisite showplace. This time, our total renovation was done from afar. We trusted Minka that much! When we walked in and saw it completed, we were overwhelmed. It was just Wow! Highly recommend and if we move again, we’ll call Minka right away!

    Bonita Bay
  • From the very first time my husband and I stepped foot into the Jinx McDonald showroom, we had a good feeling about working with them. The initial team of women made us feel as though we were the most important clients they had at the time. My husband likes to be involved with all the decisions when it comes down to designing, building & furnishings of our new home. The Jinx McDonald team took this all in stride& made both of us feel "part of the process." They have "tuned in" ears to hear what we wanted. They have an incredible eye that captured exactly the curb appeal (inside & out) we were looking for. They have a color sense like no one else we've worked with. From lighting to carpeting to artwork to unique furnishings, they spelled out a time frame, a budget & went to work. Their showroom is filled with something for everyone. Even the contemporary style like us who think out of the box. When there were dates & cost to be met or when problems arose, the Jinx McDonald team was professional & truly a breath of fresh air. By the end of the project, they were our new found Naples friends. We would use them again in a heartbeat. You are sure to be pleased when working with Jinx McDonald as your interior designers....an absolutely wonderful group of women!!!

    The Moorings
  • 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!
