Nestled in the heart of Ventura, a city renowned for its coastal charm and vibrant culture, the Villages at Westview represents a rich tapestry of history and heritage. Originally developed in the mid-20th century, the neighborhood has long been a cherished part of Ventura’s identity.

In 2017, the City of Ventura embarked on a comprehensive redevelopment initiative to breathe new life into the community. Drawing inspiration from successful urban renewal projects across the nation, city planners, architects, and community stakeholders collaborated to envision a future that honors the neighborhood’s legacy while embracing modernity and inclusivity.

JAG Interiors recently brought their designs to life in the common areas at Westview Village, Phase II, and our client was very kind to give us high marks!

Caitlin, Lori, and Jamie’s expertise and commitment to excellence were evident throughout the process. The team’s responsiveness, clarity, and willingness to address our concerns made the entire process smooth and enjoyable. They created a community that is feels welcoming, is functional and looks beautiful. Caitlin worked closely with ownership and the construction team, incorporating our vision while ensuring cost-effective solutions. JAG Interiors prioritized communal areas, creating inviting lounges and community rooms. These spaces foster connections among residents, enhancing the sense of community. If you seek a design firm that prioritizes affordability without sacrificing quality, look no further than JAG Interiors. They’ve transformed our vision into reality, and we’re grateful for their partnership.
