Owner / Principal Designer, ASID allied
Jessica Davis founded JL Design in 2005. She is a graduate of Watkins College of Art in Nashville Tennessee, and brings 18 years of Interior Design experience to the JL Design team.
“I knew I wanted to be involved in Design at a very young age, when I realized there were always new challenges to overcome. I have always been surrounded by the arts and I have always felt that my inner creativity would ultimately guide me in my career. I wanted to be a part of something that would allow me to work closely with people and enrich their lives through design. For me, Interior Design is defined by functional, unique, creativity tailored to each individual.”
With a degree in Interior Design, Jessica began consulting on Design projects in Middle Tennessee, and was soon being commissioned for jobs in New York, New Jersey, and Miami. JL Design’s reputation for innovative Interior Design solutions has made it a leader in its class.
“I feel so fortunate to be able to bring my devotion and energy to my clients every day, and forge relationships that I find so crucial when working in someones home or personal space. There will always be a need for functional, progressive Interior Design, and I am committed to the art form and the evolving industry as it meets the needs of today.”

A Nashville native, Rachel discovered her passion for Interior Design, at the age of nine when she was given an opportunity to sit through an interior design class at O’More College of Design. Her love for design escalated along with her dream of attending the school one day.
After years of volunteering through their summer studios, she attended Belmont University’s O’More School of Design, where she graduated cum laude, in Interior Design. Rachel’s goal is to create designs that allow others to feel emotion and vulnerability in their own safe space. She believes design is a way to inspire others through lighting, texture, and color. In her free time, Rachel enjoys working out, loves the outdoors and spending time with friends and family.
Senior Project Manager / Interior Designer
Originally from Texas, Jessica moved to Tennessee with her family in 1989. Her uncle, father, and sister are all builders, her grandfather owned a lumber yard in Texas, and her mother was a Real Estate Broker, so it was only natural that Jessica made her way to Interior Design.
Jessica moved to Nashville in 2003 and first worked in the music industry as a talent buyer, before moving to the Interior Design industry in 2011. She is passionate about art and is an artist at her own company: Paintings by Inez. Several of her paintings are featured in our clients’ homes!
Jessica Phillips originally started as an Interior Designer at JL Design and made her way back in 2022 as our Senior Project Manager and Interior Designer after 5 years away. When Jessica isn’t ensuring smooth operations at the JL Design studio, she loves to be at home with her fur baby Archie or out canoeing with friends.

She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a major in Interiors: Planning, Strategy, and Design.
