We all know that embarking on any changes to the interior design of our homes can be a costly undertaking. Employing an interior designer to help clarify your creative direction brings confidence and know-how to your choices and can help you avoid making expensive mistakes.
I can’t speak highly enough of the experience of working with Joyce. She’s very personable, cooperative and responsive and full of strong, creative ideas. The proof is there to see: she’s been instrumental in bringing our new loft-style office to life. Her vision has been invaluable, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a dynamic, resourceful and inspiring interior design specialist.

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 that has left our home with a mixture of soothing, uplifting rooms which are a joy to entertain and live in.

I can highly recommend Joyce Porter. She guided me through the re-decoration and refurbishment
our hall, landings and stairs from the basement to the entrance hall and then first and second-floor landings in our Victorian terraced townhouse in Bristol. Her attention to detail was exemplary and I am thoroughly delighted with the finished product. Her eye for colour is ‘spot on’ and she went to great lengths to get the exact tone/shade to suit each level of the house. Her knowledge of wallpapers, paints, and fabric is wide and stimulating. Our house has been transformed. She coordinated painters, joiners, electricians and other workmen in a patient and encouraging way. She is an expert at sourcing stylish and interesting items, for instance, light switches, knobs, handles, and electric sockets. She is always ready to come up with fresh ideas which are exciting and contemporary. She was always punctual and efficient and worked within our budget. We will definitely use her services in the future.

We have worked with Joyce for around 8 years, supplying products on numerous projects, During that time we have always found her to be highly professional, conscious of what the client is looking to achieve and working with budgets.
Joyce has always enjoyed a high amount of repeat business which is a testament to the work she has undertaken.

Joyce provides a very flexible service, from a complete makeover to just a discussion and a few pointers to make the best use of space and light. She uses her intuition as well as her training to explore how spaces will get used and how to display them to their best advantage. I enjoyed working with Joyce and learned a lot from her during our project to refurbish a small grade 2 listed townhouse. Her knowledge of colour and lighting solutions were invaluable, and she had lots of ideas about where to source particular items. She took care and attention to ensure the big-ticket items were right. I think her fees were reasonable, and feel it was money well spent. I would certainly use her again.
Joyce Porter has a natural gift, flair for design and an instinct for creating stunning spaces for all her clients. Her background in art enables her to work effortlessly with colour and texture. She is totally committed to all aspects of a project and has a proactive approach. Joyce is a perfectionist, with impeccable taste and attention to detail. She is an attentive listener who is able to absorb client information, resulting in her being able to identify the most suitable style for them. Joyce has the knowledge, ability and expertise to allow each client to have total confidence in every aspect of a project.
With patience, great skill and impeccable personal service Joyce has created a truly outstanding, unique home for me, which has been greatly admired by family and friends.
I have no hesitation in recommending Joyce Porter Interiors and I will continue working with Joyce on all future projects.
