Virginia DesRoches, Principal Designer
I was destined to be involved in the Home Improvement Industry from my early childhood.
Growing up in a family with 10 siblings, my Dad ran a Home Improvement business and took many of us to work with him at a very young age. We learned hands on many of the skills & knowledge it took to be successful in this complex industry.
My artistic abilities led me to get a degree in Fine Arts but it didn't take long to start my own business. For 25 years I ran a successful business called "Artful Interior Finishing" where I transformed blank canvas spaces into unique and inviting spaces through use of paint.
As time evolved, so did my business and my desire to shift from interior artist to interior designer. I utilize many of my skills and incorporate them as I take a more hands on approach to all my work.
My approachable stress-free process allows me to envision various settings and take a design from initial concept to final installation.
What appeals to many of my clients is what I call my "A-Team". A team of respected and professional Contractors and Trades that work with me to execute and Launch a full out Renovation or Remodel, eliminating the need to hire multiple trades for your project.
Having my A-Team of brothers (DesRoches Brothers Contracting) has really led to successful project outcomes. Our working relationship, communication and similar thought process has proven to result in high quality work and a great experience for our clients who have all become friends and we treat like family.
I grew up in Acushnet, MA and reside in Fairhaven, MA with my 2 teenage sons.
My work appears in hundreds of homes across New England and has been published nationally in Better Homes & Gardens Magazine. I have been featured on DIY Network for a pilot shot with my brothers called “Family Builds” and I continue to hone my skills while creating Handcrafted Designs called "JVRustic"
