For Jennifer Sesniak, every project is a creative delight.
As the owner and designer at BluBird Kitchen & Design, Sesniak works with homeowners to find the perfect creative solution for each space. The majority of her projects are kitchen and bath remodels, but she also offers interior design services, paint consultations, and staging services.
Her favorite projects? Older homes where the creative solution is a little more challenging to uncover.
“Every project is different,” she said. “Every day is different. It keeps me entertained.”
Sesniak’s love for interior design started when she was a little girl.
“I remember when I was a kid, all I did was play house and rearrange my bedroom twice a week,” she said.
She went to Western Michigan University for interior design and started her career at a lighting store before becoming a cabinet designer at Lowes. Sesniak took a few years off to stay home with her daughter. When it was time to return to work, she couldn’t shake the feeling that she should open up her own shop.
That’s when the perfect studio space on Cedar Street in Holt opened up. Sesniak opened her shop in May 2019. Today, she masterfully manages multiple projects across Mid-Michigan, each at different stages of the process. Though she is currently a one-woman shop, she embraces each design.
“I try not to pigeonhole myself with one style,” she said.
Whether it’s a classic white-cabinets-and-granite-countertops look, or a rustic farmhouse vibe, BluBird Designs is able to offer something that big box stores can’t — variety. Sesniak’s 15 years of interior design experience means that she can address each element of what makes an interior design sing — from lighting to paint to fixtures and more. And she works with a variety of local and regional contractors so each client can find the material that works best for their individual space.
Thinking of calling Jennifer? Here’s what you can expect. After reaching out to her office via phone or email, Jennifer will set up a meeting to come to your home, measure your space and talk in detail about your vision for the project.
“I find it’s easier to talk about what they want when they’re in the house,” she said.
Using drafting software, Jennifer designs one or two layouts for each project, depending on the size of the space. She also drafts a concept sheet with paint colors and photos of the countertops and fixtures. After receiving feedback, Jennifer works directly with her contractors through the entire building process to troubleshoot any issues and make sure the client is satisfied with their new build or remodel.
