"Yujin lead the Milpitas BART station’s interior design while with VBN Architects. This station consisted of a prominent public concourse, underground platforms and public art. In addition to poetically and precisely guiding the interior materials colors, finishes and placement, Yujin also coordinate the overall interiors theme with the artists so that the final outcome is a harmonious balance of colors, textures and forms all assembled to delight the travelling public. In addition, she and I had the opportunity to successfully collaborate on several interior design projects including law offices, schools and college buildings. Working with Yujin is a treat of a lifetime and I have been seeking opportunities to work with her again. Her energy, joy and creativity are an asset to every project lucky enough to have her contribution."
Eli Naor, CEO VBN Architects - Oakland, CA
"From start to finish, Yujin and her team have been absolutely amazing to work with. Yujin helped us with an ADU project that posed many challenges due to its location on a steep slope. She patiently and creatively helped us work through all the challenges, and we were very pleased with the final results. Not only is Yujin a top-notch architect and excellent at what she does, but she is also just an incredible person - reliable, patient, generous, kind, excellent communicator, and a great advocate for her clients. We feel so fortunate to have found Yujin, and highly recommend her services to anyone!"

Parry, Owner, Postino - Lafayette, CA
"We have been so fortunate to work with Yujin Jeon for approximately a year now. She has completely redesigned our home which is currently under construction. We have retained her services beyond the plans, to help with construction project management and design finishes. Yujin is extremely talented; she is passionate and diligent about her work. Her clients’ trust is her highest priority. She often tells us “I am friends with all my clients” and we have appreciated her genuine caring for us and our daughter. She has met every single deadline she or we have set, usually early. She has meticulously designed and redesigned in order to get it “just right” for us and our family and lifestyle, while making extremely helpful suggestions to us along the way. She has been very, very generous with her time and patient with us. Her artistic vision, her detailed design work, her knowledge of code, and direct collaboration with the City of Orinda, resulted in a design that moved very quickly through city and county review processes. We couldn’t be more pleased with her work to date and fully trust that she will work productively with our contractor to help get us into our new beautifully-designed home with as few disruptions as possible and within budget. We have been so pleased with her work and would be happy to answer any specific questions you may have for us about our experience working with (Yujin) Jeon Design."
Laura and Peter - Orinda, CA
"Jeon Design is a completely professional firm. Always keeps appointments, always available to consult via phone, email, or in person. Tremendous time saving attributes when time is indeed money. I let Yujin be in charge of the construction as the Construction Admin. The best decision I have made. She watches every detail, saves cost without sacrificing the quality, she deals with surprises which are inevitable in any demolition/rebuild project.
Yujin is professional, passionate, hard working, pleasant, trustworthy, and an honest designer. Her work is worth much more than her fee. I have already decided to work with her on our next project. She will definitely deliver results more than you expect."
Steven - San Francisco, CA
"If you are looking for an Architectural Designer, I highly recommend Yujin at Jeon Design. She not only has deep expertise in complete renovations, ADUs, new construction and additions - but she is also very knowledgeable with navigating the permitting process and knows the Lamorinda area very well. We recently finished phase 1 of our remodel and will shortly begin the larger phase 2, which includes an addition and complete re-design of our home. Yujin is amazing to work with. She is incredibly talented, professional and committed. She takes the time to listen to her client needs and genuinely cares about building the right relationships. Her enthusiasm and passion for her work is contagious."
Lina - Orinda, CA
"Game changer!!! We signed a new lease to relocate a furniture store (What A Room) and felt like we had decent idea of how we wanted the space to look from our previous store’s layout. However, we connected with Yujin through a referral just to see what we might be missing and to get a few more ideas. As soon as we met with Yujin, there was no doubt that we needed her and I am completely glad we didn’t let ourselves do the designing because what she did for us is 1000x better. She masterfully put together materials, colors and finishes, but the main thing was create a unique concept that fit our business. Yujin really took our business to the next level. Outside of design, what is equally awesome is her willingness to share connections and resources. This was also truly invaluable as we found one of a kind decor pieces and amazing deals left and right. Simply put, we are very thankful for the experience and the result is a game changer!"
Steven - San Jose, CA
"I've known Yujin since 2004. She designed a few of my real estate development projects. Yujin is very talented. She knows how to transform a developer vision into a magnificent turnkey project. She is sophisticated, creative, dedicated and trustworthy. She treats each project like it’s her own. Yujin is a solution oriented thinker that deliver a top notch product. I will definitely bring her on to my next real estate development project."
Adi, Developer/Investor - San Francisco, CA
"We’ve worked with a number of designer/interior
architects without finding a really good one that satisfies us 100%.
Yujin listens and completely understands what I want this restaurant
to look and feel like and what images I want to project to customers.
She considers what kinds of food, potential customers, neighborhoods,
and budget before coming up with the best design possible. Yujin has
a very keen artistic talent and is very much aware of the
most up-to-date trends in materials, textures, and colors of restaurant
Yujin genuinely considers this project as her own. She, herself, negotiates the best possible deals with suppliers and contractors. She really goes above and beyond. All transactions are very transparent. She also has vast experience dealing with city officials in obtaining necessary permits. She won't give up until all issues are resolved. There were a few scares from building inspectors but she diligently took care of them in a very timely manner.
I strongly encourage you to call me if you have any questions."
Jiyeon - San Francisco
"Yujin was absolutely phenomenal! I own a restaurant and was looking to open up a second location. Since I originally bought my restaurant, I really had no idea how to build new one from scratch. I was very lost and confused, but Yujin was very helpful in guiding me through the process. Her attention to detail, work ethic, and vision are second to none. Since she is the designer and has an architect background, she in very knowledgeable on all aspects of the process which was incredibly helpful for a first timer like me. Also she has amazing positive energy and an absolute pleasure to be around!"

She stayed within the timeframe and budget allocated for the project and still provided the best customer service and quality of materials to make the home look outstanding.

and kids we're so busy that having Yujin as involved in our project is
a huge help. She also took the time to educate us and help us define
our own taste and ideas.
Yujin is one of the most honest, hardworking, dependable professionals that we have ever worked with. We highly recommend her talents as an architect and designer."
Daniel - Tiburon, CA
"I recently worked with Jeon Design on a bathroom remodel. Initially I was overwhelmed with the project, but once I started working with Yujin I realized that her expertise and great taste was exactly what I was looking for.
One thing that I really appreciated about Yujin was that she didn’t dictate a design to me at the outset, but rather listened to what I knew I wanted and helped me extrapolate my ideas and desires into areas of decoration and design that would not have occurred to me on my own.
I’m extremely pleased with the outcome of my bathroom remodel and if I ever have to leave this house, I won’t hesitate to call Yujin again. I have already referred several friends and neighbors to Yujin and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again."
Rodney - Walnut Creek, CA
"We were so
happy with our decision to hire Yujin to help create a vision for our
home. She has a beautiful sense of style that drew us in from the
beginning. She worked closely with my husband and I to help determine
the best types of materials, colors, layout, etc - from the standpoint
of both design and functionality. We were thrilled with the final
plans, which included updates to our kitchen, living room, family room
and bathrooms. Yujin is focused, dedicated to her projects and has
extreme attention to detail. We are excited to implement the plans as
we know they will help turn our home into our dream home. Thank you,
Michelle - Lafayette, CA
Jeon Design is a delight to work with! At the recommendation of a friend, we
hired her to redesign our French bistro after a fire. From the start,
we were won over by her professionalism, creativity and design
expertise. I must admit, we are not the easiest customers to work with,
and we had very particular ideas about the design we hoped to achieve.
Yujin worked tirelessly to deliver multiple iterations of our vision
within a very short timeframe, always with a smile on her face!
You are too wonderful for words, and we are lucky to have found you!!!!"
