Joan listened to what we wanted and helped us select furniture which fit our lifestyle. We love the colors she picked (which we would not have chosen on our own), the work was completed in a timely fashion and we're very happy with the value. She's great to work with.CS


Thank you for the help you gave to us for the re-upholstery design of our living room and dining room. You zeroed in on our taste and we couldn't be more pleased with the result. Your knowledge coupled with your infectious great personality made it a treat for us working with you.

Testimony San Jose
Phenomenal experience! Stylish, professional and personable. Redesign of modern townhouse started off with a design meeting and discussion. A few weeks later was provided room designs, color suggestions, furniture recommendations, and more. I started off with painting the interior and adding appropriate furniture. I kept in touch with Joan for a number of years and hired her for ideas. Over a period of 5 years my home was nearly new with new kitchen, 3 bathrooms, hardwood floors, carpets all based on her input. When I sold in 2015 it had multiple offers and went for well above competition, both realtors pointed out it was because of the design. If I lived in the area I would use again and highly recommend

So grateful
I engaged Joan to redecorate my living room with all new furniture and to give it a fresh look. Joan was great in listening to what I was looking for and understanding my personal style. Based on this initial conversation, she provided choices for sofas, swivel chairs, coffee table, end table. In addition, she had pre-selected fabrics and designs that she thought I would like. We literally spent an hour together in my living room and I made all my choices in an hour. It was obvious that the furniture options she provided me and the pre-selected fabrics and designs options that she showed me were very much aligned with my style. My husband trusted my taste and absolutely loved my choices when he saw my selections. It was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. It was the EASIEST experience to work with Joan. She chose patterns and designs that I would have never thought to select but ended up loving them. My husband and I are thrilled with our new living room and absolutely love it. Joan made the experience friction-less and fun. She has an amazing ability to translate your vision and ideas into concrete designs. We would definitely recommend her and use her again.

Thank you Willow Glen Client
Joan has helped us with window treatments for our entire house. Not only is she extremely professional but she is also very knowledgeable and offers great options that I would have never thought of. She always gives 100% of herself when she visits and is a true design blessing. I would recommend her to anyone looking for interior and exterior design consultation. NS Willow Glen
