Jill Heaton, Owner & Lead Designer

If you’re looking for a top interior design firm, look no further than Jill Heaton Interiors. The company is a full-service design firm specializing in new construction and renovation.

Owner and Principal Interior Designer Jill Heaton had been working with Myrtle Beach-area clients since she began her business in Lexington in 2019, and later decided to relocate her home base and move with her family to the Murrells Inlet area in 2023.

The design firm “brings organization to every project with an intentional 15-step process,” she explains. “We are upfront about our structure and work very hard with our clients on the front end to commit to their budget.”

Jill Heaton Interiors boasts an impressive portfolio ranging from updating comfortable living areas, to upscale, roomy dressing rooms, luxury, waterfront home designs, and spacious commercial properties.
“We design spaces unique to each client’s style and budget, so our services truly change with each client experience, within our core commitment to our process,” Jill explains. 

“This community offers JHI the chance to work with so many different personalities! Each new project offers us a completely new experience, and the Grand Strand has the eclectic feel that lets us and our clients truly express themselves with their space.”

JHI is also involved with the Grand Strand community.

The design firm is a member of the Horry-Georgetown Business Association, and “we look for opportunities to sponsor charities in our area through special events in our growing network,” Jill notes.

The Heaton family is attending a new church home, First Baptist Church of Murrells Inlet.

Jill and her firm have also accrued some impressive accolades, including being featured in the 11th edition textbook, Housing and Interior Design by Evelyn L. Lewis and Carol Turner Smith. Most recently Sherwin Williams highlighted Jill’s renovation of a master closet in a STIR Article Titled: “Closets Are The New Self-Care Sanctuaries”.

A mission statement of sorts, Jill says: “Jill Heaton Interiors seeks to attentively serve her clients with effective communication. We are responsive and timely. Connecting with each of our clients on a personal level is our heartbeat. Their joy in the big reveal of installation day is a true reward! We provide intentional design for a beautiful life.”
