Beth Odence - Owner & Principal

Beth comes to design from a background spanning corporate sales and marketing to designing and manufacturing children’s knitwear to the 2006 launch of BjtO Designs, a home staging firm serving Boston’s luxury home market. Design No. Five, Beth’s fifth business venture, is the culmination of her design talent and management expertise along with her team-building know-how. Beth divides her time between a loft in downtown Waltham and Cotuit with her husband and DN5 partner, Phil, and she is the mother of two daughters.

Courtney Philos-Jensen - Stylist & Textile Designer

Courtney’s background spans the art and fashion worlds; a passion for interior design brought her to Design No. Five, where she works as a stylist. A Cape Cod native, Courtney constantly draws inspiration from the coastal lifestyle and unique textures of her surrounding landscape. Her design aesthetic juxtaposes modern with traditional elements and she brings a perfectionist’s eye for detail to each and every project. Courtney has a degree in graphic design and lives in historic Barnstable Village with her husband and their young son and daughter.



Joey Johnson - Intern

Joey starting working at Design No. Five two years ago as our summer intern. Many of you have met her working at The Studio over the past few summers and over the phone. She is a full time student at MassArt where she is working on completing her BFA in Architectural Design. MassArt’s motto is Make Your Mark and Joey is doing just that, as she is a wiz using the AutoCAD software Revit. This skill has been a major addition to our design team’s interior design efforts. Joey lives in Centerville on Cape Cod and we hope she joins the DN5 team upon graduation.
