A home is not just another building. It is a where we live our lives. It is where we raise our families and laugh with friends. It is where we work and where we dream. For all these reasons and more, where and how we live matters. Our home should be a place of rejuvenation and inspiration, and this begins with design.
For almost 20 years, ANNE JOYCE has brought this sense of purpose and passion to her interior design projects. Whether breathing new life into an existing home or creating a wonderful new space, Anne approaches each project by clarifying and understanding the client’s needs. She works with them to create a space that is exquisitely designed, while retaining their unique personalities and, just as important, their functionality requirements.
Anne’s excitement for design began years ago. From Butler University, Anne enjoyed a career in advertising, and later worked in the world of Contemporary Art. She thrived on the creativity all around her and fell in love with the transformation of space and the boundless possibilities of scale, color and form. Realizing that interior design was where she needed to be, Anne got a position in a Greenwich, CT, design firm and attended the New York School of Interior Design. In 2006, Anne founded A Joyce Design, Inc, which has gone on to become a highly respected and recognized design company in New York and beyond.
Inspired by the infinite options available to designers, Anne remains drawn to identifying the perfect approach to every client and his or her unique space. From beachfront properties in Hawaii to luxury condos in Chicago and New York, Anne enjoys the challenge of bringing freshness and style to any setting. “It is all about making something old feel new again, or something new feel familiar,” says Anne. Her mission has been and remains to this day to reinforce her clients’ love for their space and to ensure that they are truly “home.”
