HOWARD ELLIOTT + JENNIFER SCHOENBERGER DESIGN - ASPIRE JLD DETROIT SHOWHOUSE
Deciding to be part of a Showhouse is a huge undertaking. It is thrilling, inspiring and adrenaline pumping! It is a chance for an Interior Designer to really dig deep and channel that love of design that called them to the trade in the first place. Helping to feed that inspiration is one of the highlights of being a Home Decor supplier!
This September, we are partnering with a number of designers to restore the esteemed Fisher Mansion in Detroit, Michigan to it's original glory as part of the ASPIRE Junior League of Designers Detroit Showhouse. Taking on the task of bringing the Nanny's Bedroom back to life is Atlanta based Designer, Jennifer Schoenberger of Jennifer Schoenberger Design.
Having grown up in Detroit, Jennifer can remember visiting the Fisher Mansion on historic home tours back in the '90s, never once imagining it would come full circle! Jennifer's involvement in the Showhouse can be attributed to being in the right place at the right time. While attending the High Point Market, Jennifer was approached by her friend, Lori who coincidentally works with ASPIRE DESIGN AND HOME Magazine, who encouraged her to join. Lori thought Jennifer was a perfect fit to join the team of 40+ Interior Designers & Landscapers participating in the Showhouse.
Drawing on her Southern living, Jennifer is infusing a smart, stylish Southern girl flair to the room. Traditional florals, ticking stripes and of course monograms in the original Fisher family initials come together in her design. The room is very feminine with a canopy over the twin bed, and colored with lots of green, gray, black and white.
To add a modern, yet feminine flair, Jennifer chose our Curved Leg Stainless Steel Console Table to be used as a desk. Our Soho Mirror, is to be used as a perfect finishing touch to the room that will be revealed on opening night!

Jennifer’s love affair with homes began with her dollhouse and blossomed into a thriving full-service design business after decorating her first home in 2008. She has been creating cozy, unexpected, classic homes for a loyal client base throughout the Southeast and Midwest.
Her attention to detail and creative approach to design quickly garnered her much-appreciated recognition from national publications including Better Homes and Gardens and Southern Living. Jennifer is also a member of the esteemed Southern Living Designer Network and Dering Hall Design Network.
