Hi, I’m Joanne. I work with the Estimating team, I do all the fun stuff of pricing and sourcing out products to help client designers during their appointments, and help our show home designers put their dream home features into a reality! J
What is your favorite CURRENT design trend, and why?
My current favorite design trend is the modern beach/Scandinavian style. This coastal feel interior reminds me of the beaches and the tropical weather back home in the Philippines.
What is your favorite PAST design trend, and why?
It will be the presences of wicker/rattan furniture in the interior. Nowadays, wicker furniture is used more often as part of a patio setup. I would love to see more of this again inside the house, to bring in more of that coastal and airy vibe.
What do you like most about working at design Q?
The culture! I feel really blessed every day that I get to work with I must say, the most talented, nicest people in the industry.
What is your favorite room in a home, and why?
The bedroom. It is a safe place for me. With big, soft pillows, cozy and warm blankets, I get to relax after a tiring day of work. It can also serve as an escape room if I want to take a break from my 2 toddlers!
Describe your dream vacation.
A European tour with my family! I would love to visit Paris, London, Moscow, Venice, Barcelona and Rome! I have always admired their rich culture and history.
What advice would you give a client when staging their new home?
Bring in natural elements into your home. It makes the decor timeless and will never go out of trend.
