Joan Tesauro is an award-winning interior decorator and home strategist best known for her enchanting take on interiors and her distinctive personal style. In addition to residences Joan has designed select offices, restaurants, salons, most notably Tangles in Los Gatos, and retail environments in the Bay Area.

Chosen by HGTV’s American Home segment for innovative wall dividers, Joan thinks outside of the box, and has a can-do attitude. Originally from Long Island NY, years of studying art and design in NYC and Italy as well as extensive world travel and shopping trips for fashion and home décor have cultivated an eye for extreme design. Joan began her career designing and styling fabrics for lingerie, swimwear and activewear in NYC's garment industry.
Joan received her BFA from the Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts. She currently resides in San Jose, California
“Joan is so passionate about her work...she partners with me to get the design I could never pull off myself. Her ideas are unique and she has great people to help execute the work. I have used her on two homes and will use her on my next move too. She is also fun and able to understand the more out of the box ideas...even when she disagrees...like a circus themed dining room and Gone With The Wind inspired draperies. KC”
