Testimonials

Knowledgeable, Professional and Responsive

My husband and I really struggled with the decision to hire an interior decorator. We have wildly different tastes and we weren’t sure if someone would be able to help us find things we’d both be really happy with. Our project was a gut renovation and we knew we needed to find someone we could work well with, who actually listened to our needs and was able to deliver the end result we were envisioning. We interviewed a few decorators in town and decided to hire J. Patryce Design. They seemed to really understand our styling differences, the scope of the project and we were impressed that they were able to immediately provide us with examples of styles that could make us both happy.

Our project lasted approximately 10 months. We found the entire team at J. Patryce Design to be knowledgeable, professional and responsive. If fact, I’d say they were more responsive than our architect and contractor! The flow and functionality of our home is exactly what we wanted. We couldn’t be happier with our end result! We opted for custom cabinetry throughout, which we were a little skeptical of at first, but we’re so happy we made that investment! Not a day goes by when we wish we had done something differently. We are so pleased with the entire project! Joan and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with and I hope we have future projects with J. Patryce Design.—LB & JC, Hudson Street, Hoboken NJ

TREMENDOUS IN EVERY ASPECT

Joan and her staff were tremendous in every aspect—really listening to what we wanted, finding high quality items and services at costs that fit our budget, brilliantly prioritizing our budget, constantly surprising us with interesting, affordable items that fit our aesthetic. We couldn’t be happier. —ML, Garden Street, Hoboken NJ

METICULOUS PROFESSIONAL

My husband and I have worked with Joan for over a year. She was very instrumental in designing our condo’s kitchen remodel and helped us completely furnish our dining, living, entry hall, powder room and master bedroom. We love her style (clean, elegant and serene). She is a meticulous professional with high standards for herself and the contractors she hires. —AG, W Hotel, Hoboken NJ

COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE

Joan and her team are top-notch designers. Could not have asked for anything more. Always appreciated her ability to work within a variety of budgets and yet not sacrifice quality. —JD, Henley on the Hudson, Weehawken, NJ

WORTH WAITING FOR

Joan Enger was worth waiting for!!! We “downsized” and I was at a loss—nothing fit—nothing worked in our new home. I did some research and was given a recommendation from some gals over at VIYET—an online designer consignment company I work with. I called Joan and she was honest and said “I am busy finishing up some projects. I give my clients my personal attention—that’s what I am all about—its my name and my work.” I sent her some pictures of my home and some inspiration photos so she could see what was I was looking for. She met with me at my home and I instantly loved her and her ideas. We scheduled a start date a couple of months away which was a test to my patience but she pulled 7 rooms in my home together in a matter of months. Her aesthetic is amazing, her creativity is endless, she works with your budget and is very responsive—the woman never sleeps. Her contractors are experienced and professional and she orchestrated it all. I now love my home and how it has evolved and Joan made it all possible!!! —LK, Pelham NY

OUR HOME IS STUNNING!

J. Patryce Design worked with us to decorate four significant rooms in our NYC apartment—living room, dining room, family room and master bedroom. Joan, the founder, listened to our ideas and then we worked collaboratively to execute this vision. She helped us with everything from couches and tables to wallpaper and rugs to throws and pillows. She did a great job of sourcing and customizing pieces so that we were able to get beautiful furniture, rugs and fabrics within our budget. Our home is stunning and much of it is thanks to her! —GH, NYC

NOT A SINGLE DETAIL WAS OVERLOOKED

Joan designed two custom bathrooms in our brownstone. She translated our consultations into beautiful designs, paying careful attention to our preferences and budget. Not a single detail was overlooked. She is very knowledgeable in many aspects of home renovation and worked very well during the design process with our architect and contractor. We would absolutely recommend her and look forward to working with her on our next project. —DK, Bloomfield Street, Hoboken NJ

FANTASTIC, CREATIVE IDEAS

We worked with J. Patryce Design on my daughter’s nursery. They were WONDERFUL to work with! Joan has fantastic, creative ideas and a great eye for detail. The room is absolutely beautiful! The wall paper on the ceiling (all Joan’s idea) is probably the most talked about feature in the room (along with the orange and pink custom rug) as it pulls everything together. The best part is that it is not just a baby’s room but a room that my daughter will enjoy for many years to come.

I highly recommend Joan and her team! —AK, Constitution Court, Hoboken NJ

EXCELLENT TASTE, UNCANNY COLOR SENSE

Joan has excellent taste, a sophisticated eye and an uncanny color sense. A perfectionist, she truly treats her client’s home as her own, down to every last detail. Her passion for design is apparent in every project big or small. We are thrilled with our kitchen! —TG, 12th Street, Hoboken, NJ

PRICELESS

My favorite word to describe Joan is “priceless.” I cannot put a dollar value on the amount of time and stress she saved me during my kitchen renovation. I am a working mother with two busy boys and Joan made my kitchen renovation painless. She helped execute the vision in my head even when my “vision” was a little blurry. Joan is professional, dependable and has an excellent eye. She understands the value of other people’s money and works to find quality product than will stand the test of time and a busy lifestyle. Joan possesses a calming presence, exudes creative ideas and utilizes her strong network to get the job done. She is a talented home decorator and a pleasure to work with. —CG, King Street, Weehawken, NJ

DEEPLY INVESTED IN CLIENT’S SATISFACTION

Joan has an incredible feel for how to realize the full potential of a space and environment. She has a strong and consistent design sensibility. She understands how to bring modern and sophisticated design to an environment while respecting and celebrating its history and character. Joan is very passionate about her craft and deeply invested in her clients’ satisfaction. —BS, Hudson Street, Hoboken, NJ

TREMENDOUS ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Joan and her crew just finished a nursery design for our home. The work consisted of remodeling what used to be an office into a nursery. Although we were short on time they were able to get everything done prior to our son’s arrival. The end result was amazing and took into consideration our preference for a clean and modern look. Joan took care of all the details and made sure everything was installed properly with tremendous attention to detail. —RZ, 8th Street, Hoboken NJ

WONDERFUL MARRIAGE OF PRE-WAR MEETS MODERN

After deciding to modernize our pre-war apartment, it was important for us to hold onto some of its classic elements such as the mahogany library and original pocket doors. We wanted a decorator who would honor those elements, yet create a more contemporary feel. Through the use of modern wall coverings, unique lighting fixtures and custom rugs and furnishings, Joan was able to create a wonderful marriage of pre-war meets modern. Our teenage boys love their fun, yet more grown-up bedrooms and we love our serene living spaces. It makes us very happy to be at home now. Joan was mindful of budgets, balancing some more expensive, custom pieces with less pricey, readily available items. I would highly recommend J. Patryce Design for your next project, big or small. Joan and her team were an enormous help to us. —LL, Central Park West, NYC

WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND

When Joan approached us with a bathroom remodel in Hoboken, we jumped at the chance to work with her firm. Joan supplied us with complete lists of tile, plumbing, and electrical fixtures. She quickly answered questions relating to the aesthetic and functional relationship of materials. Joan’s color palette and design style are up to date and could be best described as classic modernism with a sprinkle of minimalism.

We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work alongside Joan on a recent bathroom renovation and fully intend to win an award together on this project. We would not hesitate to recommend her services to any of our clients. —Platinum Construction

TRUST HER COMPLETELY

Joan has an incredible eye, brings great ideas and is very user friendly. One of the things I appreciate most about working with her is her ability to pace projects. She understands what is urgent and what is longer term but constantly thinks about both and shares great ideas and finds. I trust her completely. —KS, Garden Street, Hoboken, NJ

WARM AND FUN TO WORK WITH

I had the great pleasure to work with Joan Enger on designing both my current and previous residence. I cannot overstate how talented Joan is. Her eye for color and texture is impeccable, and she can transform an entire room with a well-chosen fabric or paint color. What I most appreciated was her willingness to get to know my family and me so that her design really captured the way we live in our home and reflected not only her style, but also ours. Joan is a warm and fun person to work with, and she will help you to create a space that you feel wonderful walking into every day. —LD, Hudson Street, Hoboken, NJ
