We know what it’s like to want to chase your passions on your own terms.

As a designer, the balancing act is real. From managing renovations to in-the-weeds business ops, time is scarce. Plus, I bet you would love more moments with your kids, traveling, or cozying up with a glass of Chianti and a good book. (Is that so much to ask??)

I know the feeling. And I can confidently say that my business — and life — transformed when my dream clients started routinely popping into my inbox. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I could finally be the CEO. Build a great team. Decide what would come next for my company. You can, too.

Together, let's discover what freedom in business looks like for you.

MEET jaquilyn

Jaquilyn believes that life, like home, is meant to be designed. In just 3 years, she went from a shy girl who had never left the U.S. to running a marketing firm from around the globe. Ochre & Beige combines Jaquilyn’s passion for writing with a Stanford education in Design and Communication.

 Jaquilyn splits her time between Europe and the U.S. and loves a good novel. She is most likely to be found hiking in the Alps with her husband, practicing French and Italian, or sipping macchiatos in a cafe.
