design philosophy

My design philosophy honours the diverse character of the homes and the clients we work with. Specialising in but not limited to, residential interiors. We create beautiful, well thought out spaces that genuinely reflect our clients’ personality, brand and life stories.

My approach draws on the ancient Chinese science of Feng Shui where harmony between the environment, interior architecture and the human experience is paramount.

I take my style inspiration from nature and the natural landscape of my working environment and developing a thorough understanding of my client and their needs.

JM Interiors is a full-service interior design studio in Darwin led by Jan-Marie Jaillei. Specialising in residential interiors, we create beautiful, well thought out spaces. Our design philosophy honours the diverse character of the homes and the clients we work with. We take our style inspiration from Darwin’s tropical, laid back lifestyle. From modern tropical to relaxed coastal or luxury vibes, we would love to help you create your dream space.

Who am I?


I am the founder and Principal Designer of JM Interiors and have been working within the Design Industry for the past 20 years. My clients benefit from international design insights I have acquired while living, working and studying in many of the world’s capitals. I have gained invaluable perspectives on cultures, design styles and trends whilst working in residential design in London, New York, the Middle East and Asia.

I studied Interior Architecture at the prestigious London Inchbald School of Design and also hold a Diploma of Architectural Feng Shui from the renowned New York Institute of Art. Having spent a total of 27 years abroad, I returned to Darwin in 2015 where I spent my childhood. In 2018, I become the first NT Branch councillor for the NT/SA Branch of the Design Institute of Australia.

"Apart from being one of the most passionate reliable and resourceful Interior Designers you will ever meet, Jan-Marie ensures the focus is always on creating spaces that are genuinely reflecting a client’s personality or brand"
