What got you started in the furniture/design business?

I always enjoyed design and decorating so I decided why not try to make some money doing what I love.

Where have you worked during your career?

I worked for Rhodes furniture for 27 yrs and when they were purchased by Rooms TO Go furniture I stayed on with them for about 6 years until I came to Custom Home Furniture Galleries.

Who are some of your favorite designers {and why}?

I love Joanna Gaines from Hgtv as well as Candace Olsen. I like them both because they tend to have a more eclectic , relaxed style of design and think outside the box sometimes.

What is your favorite design/style/aesthetic?

My favorite style for me would be very eclectic, a little shabby chic, coastal cottage, and a little modern also.

Most interesting room you have designed or worked on?

I actually helped furnish and design the interior of a yacht, that was very interesting.

What advice do you have for someone with a new house to decorate?

My best advice for someone with a new house to decorate would be to find a couple of pieces that you truly love and are drawn to and build around  those.

What do you see trending in spring/summer 2015?

For the next season  I see a lot of color and more bold design patterns

Feel free to email Joan with any design or furniture questions.
