If rich and timeless is your style, then Johnson Design Group is the firm for you.

For the past 25 years, Rachelle Johnson, owner, has been designing, renovating and remodeling homes across the nation. As an architectural designer, Johnson reconfigures spaces. “I rework the space to enhance and renew its use, as well as how it flows from room to room,” she says. “I try to include local artisans and use organic materials as often as possible.”

The award-winning group works on a variety of residential, commercial and hospitality projects. “We have a diverse background,” says Liz Jackson, interior designer and project manager. “Holistic planning means we look at the whole picture, not just one part of the equation.”

Now that people are traveling again, they want to recreate the oasis they find away at home. “Self-care is key,” says Jackson. “People want a comfortable, healing environment.” They are splurging on a little bit of luxury. “We’re seeing a big trend in better quality and finer details,” says Johnson. “We can help you create your sanctuary.”

“Creating your own home sanctuary with spa-like bathrooms, entertaining spaces and outdoor living spaces helps to nurture and care for yourself. We add doors and larger windows to open up spaces and invite more sunlight and fresh air, as well as incorporate cohesive designs that bring the outside in.” —Rachelle Johnson, Owner

Incorporating local artisans and fresh takes on materials that mirror a diversity of world travel. Fabrics, woven patterns, carved stone, rugs and original art combine to create a global, multicultural, ethnic or bohemian vibe. Capturing these elements creates the essence of travels afar. 


Telling a story. More than ever we seek connection to our loved ones, heritage, experiences and culture through collected art objects and artifacts. We love purposefully incorporating these cherished treasures to tell the story of who we are and what is important to us.  


More and more, we are creating for mindfulness and wellness in the daily lives of our clients. Soothing home sanctuaries that include meditation spaces, steamers, saunas and massage areas are crossovers from home gyms with yoga and pilates studios for the perfect mind/body care.
