Jessica and Mallory initially met as co-workers at a local interior design firm and quickly became friends. After always hearing “I wish I could afford an interior designer to do my house,” they saw a need for accessible design services at price points that appeal to all. An idea was born—3A Design Studio.

3A Design Studio works around the belief that good design should be available to everyone. We fill a gap in the design world. As much as we all love Pinterest, we are not all savvy DIY-ers. Nor do we all have several thousand dollars lying around to spend updating our homes. Despite this fact, 3A believes a beautiful home is more than just something pretty to look at or show off.

Your home is a representation of you, affects your mood and productivity, and when well-designed, makes life easier.  Allow us to help you create a space that reflects who you are. We want you to love your home, not just live in it. So, let's get started


Jessica Nguyen

As told by Mallory-

Jessica is the half-Panamanian spitfire momma bird in our duo, who will work tirelessly to get your job done while nurturing it like it was her own. Growing up as an Army brat, Jessica developed a love for travel and an appreciation for global design influences.  She is the driving force behind our productivity.  She is not afraid to push the boundaries and has a natural aptitude for creating color combinations.

Jessica has a Bachelor of Arts and Science degree and has worked in real estate for many years adding an aspect that many design firms don't have.  She knows which improvements will add the most value to your home. Jessica is married to Ty and has two girls. She loves visiting new places, good music, tiramisu, and mid-century glam.

Don’t let Jessica’s mild mannerisms fool you. She can give any 20-year-old a run for their money on the dance floor and has a secret silliness when you get to know her.

I am always coming home with... plants I can’t keep alive.

Mallory Reutter

As told by Jessica-

Mallory is the quintessential Southern girl-- poised, kind, with a sweet innocence to her and will keep you entertained with her southern colloquialisms. Her style is classic chic. Having grown up around antiques, she gravitates toward classic styles but loves updating them with contemporary elements.  

She has a true eye for space planning and texture combinations and has a knack for finding good deals. She can get you the exact look you want and most importantly, won’t blow your budget.

Mallory graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She loves going to concerts, organizing, party planning, reality TV, and desserts (preferably with every meal). Mallory is married to Jon and they have two little girls, along with their pups, Remington and Riley.

You would be surprised to know she rides out to hip-hop, boo.   

I am always coming home with... a new set of throw pillows. Jon loves it.
