What is the basic idea that you keep in your mind before starting with interior transformation
Jyoti: The only basic idea is the values and the personality of the person for whom I am designing. The design should reflect the identity of the members who are going to spend their time in the place, whether it is a resident, office, or commercial, etc. I value the space, so I design accordingly.
Where do you get the inspiration for your unique ideas?
Jyoti: I take my inspiration from my experiences. Every individual has a unique personality so I always try to know as much about my clients.

What are your strengths and weaknesses
Jyoti: People say I think and design fast. I think it’s because I’ve been doing it for years. Besides design, I have strong sketching skills and spatial vision. I communicate easily which helps me understand the client and his requirement. I try to keep myself aware of current trends and styles. I design furniture as well, and each piece of furniture is designed according to the requirement and measurement of the client and according to the space available. Hmmm…… my weakness is sometimes I spend too much time thinking and worrying about the flow of the project.
How do you overcome your weaknesses and channel your strengths into your work?
Jyoti: As I said earlier, I think too much. I divert my thought process towards the concepts and illustrations related to the project which ultimately helps me. And, I think worrying about your project is something natural. Coming to the second part of the question, I always try to stay happy, energetic, and positive in life. So that these attributes reflect in my designs. My biggest strength is my imagination and my vision, so I sketch a lot which helps me in innovating new things

A recent project By JJ interiors. About Project:- Project Name:- Villa at Noida 15 A Concept:-
Based on a classical theme with a royal touch, Jyoti has styled the place according to the client’s personality, taste, and requirements. The use of basic colours in the house with highlights of c colours breaks the monotony. Jyoti has used carving patterns and relief work on the light-colored furniture. Resonating with the royal theme, the furniture enhances the essence of the place.
The 5 floored bungalow having 2 regular rooms on each floor demanded diligent space planning. The designer increased the normal size of rooms to accommodate the pre-bought furniture as well as openness to make it lively with the feeling of attachment to the space. Jyoti’s idea behind increasing the height of the drawing-room makes it look grand as well as royal. POP material with carved moulding on the ceiling retains the royal elegance.
Using the same moulding pattern in the entire floor the designer has carved different patterns on each floor with different colour schemes to make it interesting as well as to avoid repetition of design, and to reflect the personality of each individual while conserving the connection of one space to another.
