About J. Patryce Design & Company


Interior Designer Hoboken NJ
Founded in 2005, this Hoboken based firm embodies the vision of its Principal interior designer, Joan Enger, blending clean lines with classic elements to ensure elegant, inviting environments.

Joan first began cultivating her skills during a successful run in luxury branding for Estee Lauder, Godiva and Ralph Lauren Home. After fifteen years in, she decided to pursue her lifelong passion and head back to interior design school. Upon completing coursework at NYSID, Joan was hired by Claremont to assist high-end design firms with some of the best textiles on the market. Still eager to be on the design side, Joan was fortunate to secure a position with Shostak & Company as a junior designer where she spent almost four years absorbing the ins and outs from an excellent mentor with impeccable standards. Eventually, she used her experience to set off on her own and establish her firm.

Joan’s style could best be described as “classic modern”, blending clean lines with traditional twists. She believes that a well-executed interior includes an interesting mix of materials, finishes and textures. The firm’s direction points anywhere from transitional to modern, but despite the specific style that is requested, each space that they touch feels unique, layered and timeless.

Joan currently lives and works in Hoboken alongside her husband/business partner Kyle, their son Andrew, and their two daughters, Grace and Kate. Having designed and managed the renovation of her family’s four-story townhouse, which includes her design studio/shop on the base level, Joan is especially mindful of composing spaces that balance function with a desire to live in style. In addition to private clients, Joan and her team are responsible for designing and managing large, single and multi unit urban dwellings for her husband’s development firm.

It is evident upon meeting Joan that she has found her calling.


Having a natural knack for space planning and hand sketching from a young age, Amanda had a hunch early on that a design path would eventually find her calling. A graduate from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Interior Design, Amanda joined the JPD team in February of 2016 after working for a NYC interiors firm. Her innate sense of style, impeccable drafting skills, and dedicated work ethic have proved to be invaluable and have elevated her to partner status within the firm.

Amanda favors the architectural aspect of design and is drawn to the Scandinavian aesthetic. She believes that it is more than just decorating; good design is a fine balance between art and function. She has a passion for all things design and a special appreciation for art and pottery. Outside of the office, Amanda enjoys museum hopping, hiking, brunching with her husband and friends, and dreaming of her next trip to Paris.

Maureen Baker : Freelance Senior Designer

Maureen first joined JPD in the early days, proving to be a quick learner with an innate sense of style. We remained in touch when she left to pursue a larger firm experience in NYC, where she spent the following years with top firms such as Thom Filicia, Mancini Duffy and The Switzer Group. A Jersey girl at heart, she and her husband put down roots in Jersey City after the pandemic and when a senior designer position opened at JPD, it was a natural fit! She is a graduate of Syracuse University with a degree in Interior Design and in her free time enjoys karaoke with friends, testing new popcorn recipes, and curling up with a good book.

Veronika Sakatch : Business/Project MANAGER

Having relocated to the US from Belarus in 1998, Nika had worked for a variety of NYC firms before joining our team. Her fastidious knack with numbers, highly organized manner and top notch management skills are essential to our team. Nika joined JPD in 2014 originally as our account manager but has evolved into an essential member of our team as lead project manager. She is a mother of two wonderful boys, an avid traveler and enviable fashionista.

Olivia Silvestri : Intermediate DESIGNER

It was clear upon meeting Olivia that she would be our next new member. Her calm, affable demeanor layered with her appreciation for high end residential design make her the perfect fit! Olivia graduated from NYSID in 2020 with an interior design degree, relocated to Jersey City in 2021 and joined our team shortly after. When Olivia is not in the office, she enjoys spending quality time at the beach, local wineries and binge watching the Crown.
