Headed home today from a super productive market. I walked over 50k steps, went into dozens of showrooms, and learned about amazing new products while also spending time with industry friends. I can’t wait to put this new found knowledge to use. . . #highpointmarket #hpmkt #Joystreetdesign #interiordesign #homedecor #decor #homedesign #remodel #livecolorfully #homedecor #oaklanddesigner #bayareadesigner
If you know me, you know I love a good gala. I love giving back and when you allow me to do that through a party, I’m all in. Of the many parties I’m able to attend, my heart is with the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts. The dedicated staff and amazing students inspire me every day! So happy to introduce Zoe to this world of creativity, dedication, and community. 😍😍
Today is the official launch day of our nonprofit, Joy Street Initiative! For the past year, we have been doing smaller projects for @oaklandelizabethhouse, a transitional women’s shelter helping families rebuild their lives. We are now embarking on a 2-year project to renovate EVERY room in the house, including the kitchen and bathrooms, to give the families better functioning spaces and to give the wonderful support team the ability to focus on the families and not the facility. Up to this point, Joy Street Design has been funding all the renovations - 10% of every dollar goes to the nonprofit - but we will be fundraising for the larger spaces. So if you can stop by today to party with us, we’d love to have you or hop on over to the website and take a look at what we’re doing. Thanks!! #designnonprofit #nonprofit #nonprofitdesigner #joystreetinitiative #joystreetdesign
Throwback to just last week. Missing the colors of San Miguel. 📸 @negativespace :)
A fun before and after to get this Wednesday started. Simple small updates - wallpaper, new lighting and vanity - helped make this powder room go from blah to stylish. Always love a cutesy wallpaper and can’t be mad at one with Biggie 😍 📸 @laurenedithphoto #powderbathrooms #joystreetdesign #flavorpaper #biggiesmalls #wallpaper
PARTY!! We’re having a cocktail party to celebrate our new space and have an official launch of our new nonprofit organization! We’ve been working on Joy Street Initiative for years now and I’m so happy I can officially share with everyone. More details about the nonprofit to come. Link is in my bio. If you’re in town, please stop by next Tuesday!
Spent the last few days in San Miguel and Dolores Hidalgo learning about the wonderful cities, their histories and the art of making tile. Thanks @stampworthygoods and @clayimports for planning such a wonderful trip. Can’t wait to use this knowledge (and tile) in a new project! • • • #colormakesmehappy #willtravelfordesign #tile #mexico #Joystreetdesign #interiordesign #oaklanddesigner #bayareadesigner
Spent the night at the SF Symphony for their annual gala. They were celebrating 25 years of service by their conductor. I somehow found myself in the administrative wing and this hallway that was a visual representation of everything he’s accomplished during his time there. Super impressive and inspiring. What a legacy! And what a good night with new friends! I love playing dress up 😍
Cheers to a long weekend full of delicious food and good friends. Had an amazing dinner at @merchantroots that seemed to be tailor made for me - an entire meal based on colors!! The food was visually stunning but the flavors were more reflective of how the color makes you feel or should taste. It was great!
This kitchen is BANANAS! Green cabinets,soapstone countertops, custom tile. ❤️❤️❤️ We finished it last year and I’ve been holding on to the pictures for months. You’re going to be seeing a lot more of this house because it FINALLY has been published on housebeautiful.com. Link in profile. And I’m super pumped! 📸 @laurenedithphoto • • • #kitchendesign #joystreetdesign #colorfulkitchen #housebeautiful
For some reason, I’ve been hoarding pictures of rooms and houses that I’ve completed for the last two years. But I think it’s time to let them be free. So here’s one of my favorite shots of a super colorful home office/guest room. These clients were a dream to work with. 📸 @lizdalyphoto • • • #jeweltones #colorfulguestroom #purplepillows #purpleartwork #joystreetdesign #interiordesign
Capping off a long two-week birthday celebration with my first sabering of a bottle. I can’t believe that I’m so lucky to have great friends who travel for a surprise birthday party, a wonderful and supportive husband who actually planned said party while solo parenting so I could go to Marrakech, and an amazing company with great clients that are helping build Joy Street into an empire (more details to come soon 😜). It’s time to get back to work and adulting but wanted to take some time and bask in this joy and thankful feeling. Happy weekend everyone! #monthlongbirthdaygirl #champagnesaber #interiordesign #surprisebirthdayparty #thisis40
