INTERIOR DESIGN

We create beautiful interiors that are modern and fresh. Spaces made for real life and real living. We believe good design lies in the details and a quality execution of a solid plan. We bring an edge to all of our projects with our eclectic style that is fresh, colorful, and modern.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Perfect doesn’t exist in real life.  Perfect spaces are dull.  I want to walk in to a room with an element of surprise.  With an unexpected piece that ties it all together.  Using juxtaposition and a combination of colors, shapes and ideas can melt together and create a beautiful room. That’s what I live for – the mix.  Modern chairs paired with a traditional table.

Balancing heavy and light.  Linen with velvet. Leather with silk. Your house should be filled with joy and reflect your own personal style.  Your home should make you feel happy. Your rooms should have a purpose and a soul. You should wake up in beautiful surroundings and make memories in a place you love.

 

A Southerner first and forever, Alabama native, Jade Joyner has lived all over the United States and the world. After exploring the hills of Tennessee and the cobblestone streets of Virginia, then enjoying the beaches of Florida, and the wine country of California, she moved to Europe with her family at a formative age. It didn’t take long for her to fall in love with the region’s history and charm, and she spent the next 15 years studying, traveling, and working in Istanbul, Warsaw, London, Vienna, Budapest, Prague, and Moscow.

Jade studied Art History in Vienna, then began her career in advertising in the majestic capital of the Hapsburg Empire. While still in college, she became an account executive with global advertising giant, Ogilvy & Mather, where she perfected her business skills—project management, meeting deadlines, and customer service.

With an eye for art, a family background in interior design, and a love of all things beautiful, Jade started her own interior design firm in 1999 in exciting Budapest, Hungary. Less than a year later, the joint venture of AIG Global Real Estate & Lincoln Properties Inc. commissioned her to work with local Polish architects as an interior designer for the company’s Warsaw-based model homes in a 101-unit residential project, the first of its kind in modern Poland. Her model homes sold first and fast.

After 15 years exploring the world, Jade moved to Washington, D.C., where she completed a variety of residential and commercial projects in Virginia, Maryland and D.C.

Jade’s Southern roots beckoned her home in 2008. Jade now manages projects across the South and around the world from her company’s home base of Athens, GA. From The Classic City, she is using her unique passion for modern, eclectic design, all influenced by her worldly adventures, to help create a new vision of the South.

Whether you are seeking design services for your home, a special event, or for a photo session, we will guide you through a sea of style choices, ultimately helping you achieve the look and feel that you want.
