About CJD 

Catherine Jordan Design is a Virginia-based interior design firm providing full service, turnkey design solutions for residential and commercial clients. We specialize in custom/bespoke renovations, new construction and whole room makeovers. We collaborate extensively with other professionals including builders, architects, contractors and artisans to create beautifully executed interior and exterior spaces.

My job is not complete until the design is a true reflection of your vision and style.

Our design work starts by carefully listening to our clients’ passions and desires, lifestyle and aspirations and then following that with a highly collaborative process that delivers a custom design which is a true reflection of our clients’ personality.


Our Design Approach


Every project starts with collaboration with the client and continues through the work I do with architects, builders, contractors and artisans. Beginning with client conversations I compile the foundation of design goals, dreams and aesthetic to create a story. I strive to make the client feel part of the design team at all phases of a project. I do everything possible to make the process fun and interesting.


Using the design story as our guide, I work with the client to create a uniquely curated and cohesive plan. As we progress through the design creation I use various presentation techniques to communicate the design concepts and ensure we are true to our design scheme.


The end result is a unique space tailored to the clients’ aspirations and lifestyle. My ultimate goal is that my client appreciates that they have been part of the design process and receives pleasure each time they enter their newly designed space.

Cathy designed our kitchen and was very professional and responsive. Working with her was an enjoyable experience and I highly recommend her services.

Our Clients

While we have worked with clients from New York to Boca Raton, we focus primarily in Virginia and North Carolina.

Our best clients value design and the collaboration process.



Whether it’s redesigning or renovating an existing space or assisting with the space planning and design of new construction, I bring both my artistic eye as well as mathematical sensibility to bear on every project. By far the most important skill I have honed in my years of interior design is the ability to listen carefully to my clients. Through conversations and collaboration, I delight in being able to decipher a client’s needs and taste and provide them with a beautiful solution for their design quandary.


From hospitality to real estate development to nonprofit clients, I bring years of design experience as well as my account manager and consultant background into each commercial project. This unique experience allows me to provide an invaluable service to produce and work within budgets, manage projects and act as a liaison with contractors and vendors.
