I'm Debra James,

award-winning designer and owner of
Design Line Works, and I’m the catalyst who can turn that dream space in your head into a
real space in your home!

My goal is to balance beautiful form and fantastic function while creating a space that instantly screams, “YOU.”

My design process begins with taking the “bones” of our space and making sure it functions well for you. It’s like making a cake. Once you have the body of the cake (the function) you can move on to the best part – the frosting! These are the elements that make the space uniquely YOURS.

My Story

Starting with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach, Califor­nia, I’ve worked with many custom home builders, architects and of course homeowners during all phases of construction. I’ve spent over a decade in Jacksonville and the surrounding area putting together what I call my “A-team,” a group of trusted, qualified tradesmen who do the heavy lifting ofturning your dream space into reality!

My Design Process

Each design process is unique and always client focused beginning with function and finalized with details that create magic!


Projects begin with conversation about your vision and the function of your space.


The creative process where the plan is outlined to bring the vision to life!


Expert craftsman converge to execute the plan and our vision becomes your reality!
