My name is Joy. I am a native Angeleno, I have been married to my high school sweetheart for more than 20 years, and am Mama to 7 amazing kids. My heart flutters at a well designed room and I hope to bring that same feeling to my clients about their own homes. I believe that a room doesn't need to be perfect to be "just right", in fact, much of the warmth and beauty of a space is found in the imperfect and unexpected details. I think that even a formal room should be cozy and a casual setting should still feel special. I believe in making wise investments in quality pieces, which may cost more but will stand the test of time. However, I also LOVE a bargain. It brings me great joy to hunt for a good deal- and I go out of my way to stretch my clients’ dollar as far as I can to give them a look they’ll love. I pride myself on listening to my clients, interpreting their style, and understanding their needs. I am overjoyed when I can give my client a space they never thought they could have and all within the budget they knew they had!
While my personal style leans toward a modern, earthy, Scandinavian minimalism, I appreciate variety in design and genuinely enjoy creating beautiful spaces outside of my own tastes. Together, with hand-chosen finishes, custom furniture, layered textures, and meaningful items, we will design a house where you, and all who enter, will feel at home.
