Get to know JAE

Jae grew up studying classical music, which inspired her big move from Seoul to New York at a very young age. Even after pursuing her opera performance degree, she couldn’t ignore her love for fashion & design.

This path may have inspired her eclectic approach to design, which revolves around careful consideration of a client’s tastes and personality while incorporating and acknowledging the intrinsic architectural characteristics of a space. Her past projects range from full brownstone restorations to tackling expansive industrial lofts all over NYC. Jae’s overall goal in designing a home is to mix and match unique pieces, while seamlessly balancing the traditional, contemporary, and eccentric into fun and functional living spaces.

Liz S.

Jae has an infectious personality and a great eye for unique pieces and style pairings. She was extremely easy to work with and was always ready with new ideas if I didn't love the original ones. She also has impeccable personal style... and my cat loved her!

Kara J.

The apartment is perfect! We love it and have loved working with Jae. We have been recommending Homepolish left and right.

The feedback on the space is overwhelmingly positive! It looks amazing!

Jae is unique and inspiring. She tries to find pieces that can't be copied. She'll spend weeks searching for the perfect rug that might be from around the world, but it still fits our budget and looks amazing. The integrity of the work is what's most impressive. I learned that I don't have to give much input for her to make the best decisions, even if I'm not sure about how it will come out.
