From design to engineering, project management to merchandising, Team Digs represents a variety of skill sets that masterfully lend to seamless design experiences for our clients, vendors and project partners.
Owner & Head Designer
Digs Design Company; led by owner Jocelyn Chiappone, generates spaces that are both livable and extraordinary. “Our design sensibility is coastal chic with a mastery of color and comfort. We focus on the needs of our clients with superior project management and fine attention to detail. Ultimate client satisfaction is always our goal.”
Jocelyn listens to the client’s needs and applies her design expertise to create beautiful spaces that are ideal for living. She brings exquisite color and bold patterns into rooms that need to be awakened. In addition, she incorporates soft pallets where fine silhouette and texture outshine color. The question that begins every project is what is the client hoping to achieve: a space infused with brightness and energy or a peaceful respite from the outside world?
Jillian graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in engineering. After graduating she felt the need for a more creative position and entered the design world. Her background makes her an impeccable project manager and a major asset to the Digs Team. Jillian thrives on the faced paced work environment and loves collaboration with our vendors. She enjoys helping her clients achieve their dreams. A few of her favorite projects include a new home for a young family, a historic summer home renovation and a coastal carriage house.
