Award winning business JEI Studio has answered the call to protect our native habitats and wildlife by getting behind Fifteen Trees and contributing to one of our planning projects to the tune of 60 native trees.
We believe that supporting community tree-planting initiatives is not only an investment in nature; it’s a commitment to a sustainable future. Trees are the silent architects of a healthier planet, providing clean air, a habitat for diverse ecosystems, and a source of inspiration. By fostering community tree planting, we cultivate a legacy of ecological responsibility, ensuring that the beauty and benefits of trees endure for generations to come. JEI Studio is committed to ongoing donations of 15 planted trees for every design and decoration service agreement.
Jessi Deakin | Owner | JEI Studio
Jessi has been practising her craft for over a decade, on Dharawal Land/Wollongong’s Coal Coast region, where she has been assisting clients with advice on interior styling. JEI Studio has a knack for creating spaces that are bespoke, functional, comfortable and editorial-worthy. Jessi’s work has also been described as deeply considered, immersive, grounding and uplifting, all in the same moment. Her highly admired work has been featured in many industry publications such as Vogue Living, Inside Out and Home Beautiful.
We planted Jessi’s trees at West Gate Park in Melbourne’s inner west. Fifteen Trees has been working with Westgate Biodiversity for the past 8 years and have watched the park expand and grow. This has been due to the team of amazing volunteers, some of whom have been attending weekly park activities for well over a decade.
The trees were a mixture of natives, all indigenous to the district. In fact, the seeds collected to propagate plants have been gathered within a 20 km radius of the park. They are grown by a host of volunteers from Westgate Biodiversity and delivered to the park for planting.
Jessi has kindly teamed up with us at Fifteen Trees, and we thank her for her dedication to helping us with our mission to support community tree planting projects.

We craft elevated, aspirational, and enduring spaces that connect to nature, enhance well-being, and make a profound, lasting impact that transcends mere aesthetics. We are led by the inherently relaxed Australian lifestyle, in both design and attitude. We prioritise responsible choices, mindful of our environmental and social impact. With a core focus on connection, our projects are an invaluable investment in life and the art of living’. Jessi Deakin
