A true Florida girl, Joie has lived in Florida’s seaside communities for most of her life…her love of the Gulf of Mexico and daily beach walks provide endless inspiration. She is a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers and has had her design work published in Naples Illustrated and Gulfshore Life.

Joie’s career has encompassed many areas of the design world…she has worked for Ethan Allen, Drexel Heritage and many of the shelter magazines including House Beautiful, Country Living and Victoria. She has designed furniture showrooms, retail stores and private homes…often involved in the renovation and construction projects. Joie has worked as a consultant for the Antiques Roadshow to select antiques for reproduction by a major furniture company.

Her love for historic architecture has inspired her to rescue and renovate a National Register circa 1920 apartment building in High Point, North Carolina that she christened “Villa Valencia” in tribute to its unique Mediterranean style. While earning a Master’s Degree at East Carolina University, her research on turn of the century homes in North Carolina published. In 1994 Joie was engaged to design a bed and breakfast in Bar Harbor, Maine that in a past life it was the summer cottage of John Jacob Astor

In Naples she fell in love with the charming cottages of old Naples, and  wrote a book, Dream Houses of Naples, published by the University Press of Florida. It is now available on Amazon. Joie also renovated a vintage 1960’s Florida block house in Coquina Sands, one of Naples earliest neighborhoods
