testimonials

“Joye is what you want in an architect-talented, knowledgeable, ethical, creative, assertive, and patient. She solved design issues in ways that we would never have thought of. She was our advocate with trades and retailers-often asking great questions that helped us make decisions. When we vacillated on design decisions, she was patient and understanding. She worked to reduce our stress-calm in every storm. It was clear throughout that her focus was on us getting the house we dreamed of.”

– Jane and Ben, Homeowners

“We love our home and Joye is literally part of every thought as we enjoy it. A major real estate developer in Washington DC came here for dinner recently. He said he has NEVER seen a home so beautifully designed. He saw each detail, and said he would hire Joye in a flash if he was going to build a house! We wanted to share his admiration of Joye’s incredible work.”

[“Joye is a fabulous architect! Not only is she a joy to work with, but she is highly professional as well. It’s clear she uses critical thinking and extra attention to detail when applying design strategies. Joye offers a personal touch to the design when working with her clients but remains true to the client’s vision. I would absolutely welcome the opportunity to work with her again!”

– Kristin Melbostad, Allied ASID, Interior Designer

“Joye recently completed a major decorating project on ‘our’ home. Throughout the 6-month project, she was a delight to work with-always professional yet flexible, approachable, and personable, making decision-making easy. Her attention to detail was outstanding and insured the highest quality in the finished project. Highly recommend her.”

– Erik, Homeowner

“Joye is very professional to work with. If I call, text or email, she responds right away. I like her professional taste and opinions. We worked together on deciding everything from paint color, all bathroom materials and where everything needs to be placed. She went with me to lighting, plumbing and cabinet showrooms and helped me decide what to select. I would highly recommend her. I would use her talents again.”

– Jill, Homeowner
