We have worked with Joyce to create new rooms and decorate a house which we moved into. In a nutshell Joyce has been fantastic to work with and we are really happy with the changes which she has helped us with. Where we have had ideas of what we have wanted to achieve, she has really listened and taken those ideas on board. Crucially, she has also told us where she thinks a different idea or way forward is better and she has been unfailingly correct! Where we have asked Joyce to come up with ideas from scratch, the end result has been great. Joyce’s network of suppliers have all been professional and have supplied or produced quality products. Joyce has also looked to work within our budget – she has given really good advice on where we should not cut corners and where a less expensive option would be fine. Joyce is a pleasure to deal with and, put simply, whenever we start to renovate/decorate a new room, Joyce is our first call.

Dear Joyce,
I wanted to write to say thank you for all your help with the redecoration and redesign of our living room and dining room. I absolutely love everything you have done. As you know I am quite conservative in ideas but you have worked with me to accommodate all my wishes and I can honestly say that everything you have done looks fabulous. The quality of the furniture and fittings is second to none. I look forward to working with you In the future and am more than happy to provide glowing references for any new clients.
Very best wishes,

Sue, Henleaze

After a visit to a friend whose dining room was designed by Joyce, we had high hopes that she would be able to transform our sitting room. We weren’t disappointed – in fact, so happy were we with the completed room that we didn’t stop there; with Joyce’s help we are now transforming our fifth room! Joyce has improved our home in a way that we would never have been able to do ourselves.

She has worked brilliantly with us within the limitations of each brief, including our old furniture, practical necessities and so on. Joyce has an amazing knack for showing us just what we need when we know something is missing but can’t figure out how to fix it! Her use of colour in paint and fabrics and interesting lighting choices are particularly inspiring.
We are nearly at the end of a process which has left our home with a mixture of soothing, uplifting rooms which are a joy to entertain and live in.

For us it was a completely new experience to use an interior designer for our home. The result however was a very pleasant experience with a great result. Joyce added a dimension to our interior that we alone would not have ever envisaged. Her ability to introduce style and simplicity into the decor is exceptional. Additionally Joyce managed the project from start to finish taking the burden of organising multiple contractors away from us. We would have no hesitation in recommending Joyce to anyone who wanted to transform their living space.

We wanted to give our oddly-shaped, poorly-furnished sitting room a radical makeover with new furniture, flooring, shelving and a built-in window seat. We had a few ideas, but didn’t really know where to start.

We found Joyce through her website, and a few months later we have a completely revitalised room. We love it. It’s a light, airy space with an uncluttered Mediterranean feel and a colour scheme that works perfectly. The furniture, shelves and storage are tailored to our needs and tastes, and the lighting is subtle and flexible to suit all occasions.

Joyce was invaluable. From the start, she worked with us, never imposing her ideas but making helpful suggestions with endless patience. She was a fund of knowledge about lighting, fabrics and furnishings, such as where to find just the right shade of blue for the sofas or the perfect lamp for the corner. From a pool of top-quality craftspeople she called in a flooring specialist, cabinet maker, decorator, electrician, plasterer, sofa-maker, upholster, maker of Roman blinds, and even the man who put the blinds up. She co-ordinated their work, checking frequently on progress with an eye for detail so that the finished product is top-quality.

In short, Joyce is a treasure. She’s also a pleasure to do business with and excellent value-for-money. We would never have achieved our lovely room without her help.

We commissioned Joyce Porter to refurbish our Board Room which had not been redecorated for at least 18 years.

Joyce came up with a stylish and workable scheme which suited our early Victorian building in Clifton and kept within cost restraints. Joyce oversaw all the work and kept her sub-contractors on schedule and all the work was carried out in a clean and efficient manner.

We would certainly use Joyce again on any future projects.
