Our homes are our sanctuary, our secure base from which to launch the rest of our lives. I believe creating a nurturing, comfortable, ordered and atmospheric space can bring benefits to all areas of life.
Listening to and understanding how people envisage using their homes is fundamental to a successful scheme. Creating order is vital in a comfortable relaxed home and I look for imaginative practical solutions interpreted in a stylish way to achieve this. It is important to me to establish a collaborative relationship with my customers so that together with a trusted team of skilled professionals we eliminate the usual stresses associated with home improvement and create beautiful interiors that reflect individual lifestyles and requirements.
Her friendly and professional approach to design ensures a seamless process with results personalised to meet each client’s brief. She has an MA in Italian Culture from Bristol University and a BA in Italian and History of Art from the University of London.
With experience of projects throughout the UK, Joyce and her design team enjoy mixing contemporary design with traditional ideas and finishes. They are passionate about creating beautiful, welcoming interiors that incorporate elements of texture, colour and scale to ensure schemes that are decoratively balanced and appealing.
One of the keys to her success has been the priority she places on really understanding the needs of her clients, ensuring that her designs are a true reflection of individual lifestyles. Her empathetic, yet professional approach often brings clients back for further projects.
Sensitive use of colour and texture is a trademark and Joyce’s interiors are brought to life with sympathetic lighting which is a fundamental aspect of the total design. Attention to detail is a priority and her interiors are characterised by a high level of finish. Finally, the ultimate focus for Joyce Porter Interiors is the creation of comfortable environments and welcoming spaces for living and entertaining.
A new departure for Joyce Porter Interiors is a collaboration with Gill Greenwell, an interior design writer based in the Cotswolds. Gill and Joyce have been friends for many years and share a passion for all areas of interior design. This common interest has led to a more professionally based collaboration, sharing design approaches and ideas on a range of projects.
