Mindwell Design

Interior Design That Improves Your Well-being

About Mindwell Design

Hello, I’m Gabrielle Kozhukh-Joo, the force behind Mindwell Design, an Interior Design Firm dedicated to improving your life. My mission? Crafting spaces that look fantastic, work effortlessly, and make you feel incredible.

With over a decade of experience in Construction and Sustainability, I specialize in elevating your style with the magic of a positive mindset. Why? Because I believe the right frame of mind is the key to truly loving your home.

I’m here for those who want more than just a beautiful space. I’m here for the trailblazers, dream-chasers, and visionaries who want a home where they thrive with their families. And here’s the twist – my designs aren’t just about appearances; they create lasting habits and rituals that enhance your life even after our work is done.

Ready to elevate your space and your life?  Let’s connect. Your design journey begins right here.

Our Services

Whether you want to transform one room or a whole home you’ll be able to experience our signature “Personalized Full Service Design.”

Relax and enjoy this creative journey as we handle every nuance, bringing your vision to life. Down to the smallest details that make you… well, you.

By closely collaborating with you to breathe life into your vision, we oversee every step of the process—from the initial concept to the final finishing touches.

Whether we are working on ground-up construction, renovation, or furnishing and decor, we meticulously attend to every detail so you dont have too.

Our Process

Initial Design Call

Every project begins with a complimentary Initial Design Call where we’ll get to know you and your project, share more about ourselves, and dive into the details to determine if we’re a good fit for each other.


Next, we do a paid 2-hour consultation right in your home. This sets the stage for what you really want and need.

Design & Planning

Then, we roll up our sleeves and design. The cost here is determined by the size of your space.


Finally, we take care of turning all of the ideas into actions—purchasing items, setting them up, and managing the whole project. The cost for this is based on your total project budget.


“She set expectations from the beginning and was extremely detailed throughout the process. Her #1 priority was ensuring that things were done right, and coordinated with us and our contractors as needed… Would work with her again in a heartbeat!”
