What does home mean to you?
Let us help you figure the answer out. I believe that our homes dictate the way we live, both in and outside of them– so why not live passionately?
Our goal with every design project at Lovejoy Interiors is to create design that lasts. To design luxuriously with an attention to detail. To form eye-catching color palettes, blend diverse textures, and mix in beautiful furnishings. But, it’s also to have a relationship with a home and the people who inhabit it. In the end, the highest compliment we can receive is that a client was treated carefully, honestly, and creatively.
Life is not perfect. The peonies from the photoshoot will die, and there will be pasta sauce accidentally spilled on the new sofa. These memorable moments are what make home a home. We like spaces that are detailed and thoughtful but most importantly, you can feel the soul of it’s inhabitants and what is important to them.

You don’t need a spirit guide to help you find your own style. Just embrace what you already know you like, and heed these tips!
The Jones’ who? Your style is your very own, treat it that way.
Play with textures as you do patterns, and don’t be afraid to mix!
Find your budget balance– highest price doesn’t always mean the best for the space.
Trouble getting started? Look in your closet for palette cues.
Breathe, it is ok to mix metal finishes.
Listen to yourself, you are your best design guide.
Use the architectural style of your home as a starting point; Spanish, Mid-Century, Colonial, Tutor, etc. and the furnishings and decorations will fall into place.
Light, light, and more light. I always recommend 3 layers of light, or more, via skylight, reading lamp, or a statement pendant.
For a fast transformation, paint the walls! Even a new shade of white will make a big difference.
Use the same color twice when putting a room together.
Straighten up for your guests.
Invest in a cozy blanket.
Have one statement piece in every room. Flea markets and vintage stores have your back.
Fresh cut flowers are an instant facelift in any space.
Challenge yourself / push your limits.
Lighting is the jewelry of the room.
Scale and proportion of all elements in a room are vital to the design success.
