When Joy started her interior design business over 25 years ago she wanted to change environments for primarily low income families. She thought the spaces were void of color, life and art. As a former member of the Federal Hill Preservation society, Joy learned early on that the history of each project should be woven through the renovation and tell a story. Joy utilizes every project with artwork to incorporate detail and integrity thoroughout her deisgn process. She has taken that sense of creativity to incorporate spaces that speak volumes with the small to large budgets. Projects span from numerous residential projects to various projects such as Total Health Care sites, BMW of Sterling and numerous apartment buildings.
