I do not charge potential clients for the opportunity to meet me for a couple of hours and see that my ideas and abilities can fulfill your desired expectations.  If you want to proceed with us, then you would engage Odyssey/me, as your designer to do the drawings and allow for our subs to bid the project, then receive a comprehensive proposal so you know the design has been bid accurately.

Our story

Welcome, glad to tell you a little about JR and I and how we became Odyssey Interior Design.  Simply, I had the Interior Design training and work experience,  JR the customer care experience from his years with Porsche vehicle service in Naples. We decided with a nudge from our family to explore starting our own business.  JR liked the name Odyssey for the potential use of the rhyming motto "You Ought to See it!"...Haha... I simply liked it because of Homer's adventure story tied naturally into my ancient Greek name Athena!
