Virginia DesRoches is Principal Designer at Virginia DesRoches Design (formerly known as Artful Interior Finishing).
Virginia is well-known for her Rustic-Industrial aesthetic which appears in both residential and commercial settings she’s designed in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and throughout surrounding communities of the South Shore. With the help of her design-build team, she has been transforming blank canvas spaces into unique and inviting places with rustic elegance for over 20 years.
Virginia’s approachable and stress-free process allows her to re-envision various settings and take their design from initial concept to final installation. She is consistently able to translate the needs of each client into spaces that reflect their desired aesthetic, while simultaneously incorporating one-of-a-kind design elements along the way.
Virginia takes a hand-on approach to all of her work, and continues to hone her skills and create Custom Handcrafted Designs for her JVRustic Collection. Each piece is individually designed for her clients and is always reflective of her signature New England style.
Virginia’s work has been recognized nationally and published in Better Homes & Gardens, featured on the DIY Network (she and her brothers shot a pilot called “Family Builds”), and appears in hundreds of homes across New England. Among other design-industry podcasts, she has been a guest on Powerful Women of South Shore’s Radio Station. You can also find a collection of Virginia’s DIY tutorial videos on YouTube where she shares her skills and creativity to help empower others.
