We could never imagine a home without Joan’s touch

Just finished our second home renovation with Joan and her team. We could never imagine a home without Joan’s touch. She and her team have incredible design instincts, creatively problem solve and leave you with an incredibly beautiful home. Too much to say and too little space. Her work will speak for itself!—JD, Tenafly, NJ

Joan and her team are efficient, responsive, and most importantly, have exquisite taste in design

Without Joan and her team, we would never be able to achieve our dream home. There were so many decisions to make but they made the whole process as smooth as possible. Joan and her team are efficient, responsive, and most importantly, have exquisite taste in design. We were very lucky to work with them!—TWF and KC, Bloomfield Street, Hoboken, NJ

Beautiful, yet comfortable and warm

What you and your team designed is beautiful, yet comfortable and warm. Your vision changed our stark white rooms to beautiful spaces. We bought this apartment for the view, your sheer window coverings in the main living area allow us to take full advantage of the view of the river and Manhattan. We are enjoying each and every special touch your team put together for us. I personally like all the vintage furniture, the proportions are great, and a bit unexpected in a modern and new high-rise building. The pottery is another favorite. The unique shapes and sizes give interest to the rooms and carry the design, providing continuity throughout the apartment. It was a pleasure working with you and the JPD team.—DT, Hudson Street, Hoboken, NJ

We would have been absolutely lost without their expertise

J. Patryce Design & Company were a dream to work with. They took our shared vision and turned it into a reality with a sense of precision & professionalism that made the whole experience smooth. There are so many details that go into the process—we would have been absolutely lost without their expertise. Would recommend them to anyone & everyone we know!—RS & MS, Clinton Street, Hoboken, NJ

Thank you for all the thoughtful choices you made. We are extremely happy with your service.

They delivered beyond what we had hoped

We love what Joan and her entire team did in our home! We worked with Joan on our living room and dining room. Her team immediately came up with ideas we were excited to explore, including doing a built-in in our narrow dining room to maximize the space. We wanted the space to fit our extended family for holidays and get together, be put together but not formal, and be a place to have dinner daily if we wanted. They delivered beyond what we had hoped. The project was finished right before Covid, and it was a magical place for our family to gather daily for meals—we never thought we would appreciate a room more than we have this one. Not far behind is our living room—a place we enjoy daily. It is beautiful, functional, and inviting. Exactly what we wanted for our two young boys and us. We highly recommend Joan and her team!—SB, Park Street, Hoboken, NJ

Her eye for detail is what makes her work special

Joan transformed our home from a “white box” to a beautiful, comfortable and functional home. Her eye for detail is what makes her work special. The right hardware, fabrics, furnishings, styling, etc. all work together to create a home that make guests (and us!) say “wow”. I went from having buyer’s remorse after we bought our home to never wanting to leave. Every room I enjoy spending time in and the solutions she gave for a busy (and clutter-prone) household simply improved our quality of life. Everything has a place in this beautiful home!—CP, Garden Street, Hoboken, NJ

Every aspect is so completely unique

The attention to detail was perfection. I never imagined how incredibly beautiful my home would look; every aspect is so completely unique. I am truly happy with the final presentation.—AB, Spring Lake, NJ

We could not be happier and love our home!

The duplex we purchased was designed by J. Patryce Design and we hired them afterwards to furnish and decorate it. We could not be happier and love our home! Joan has impeccable taste and very high standards. We really did not know what we wanted to do with our home except that we were working on a budget and needed the space to be functional for our growing family. Joan was able to take the lead with minimal direction from us and create an environment that is perfect for our family. She designed custom built-ins, selected and installed wallpaper and window treatments, and picked out and installed all our furniture, lighting, and decor. We trusted them throughout the whole process and it was a completely stress-free experience for us. Joan went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect and any punch list items were addressed immediately. We could have never come up with the design or managed the process ourselves. We highly recommend J. Patryce Design and using them was a great investment.—JL and ML, Bloomfield Street, Hoboken, NJ

Wonderful designers, thoughtful advisors and collaborative partners

Joan is a wonderful designer, an expert in every aspect of the design and renovation process and a truly collaborative partner. Joan and team were with us throughout the entire design and renovation of our kitchen, master bathroom and guest bathroom and we simply could not have done it without them.

First, we really loved JPD’s design style which we evaluated from their portfolio of work and conversations with them. Their design approach is absolutely holistic and high-quality. Joan and team see and “create” the whole space including the décor, furniture, textures, etc. During the design process, they were attentive to our tastes and they provided excellent design direction which really opened our minds and pushed us (in the right way).

We had a lot to learn throughout the design and renovation process; they were great teachers and consultants throughout. We appreciated how Joan and team brought options, discussed pros/cons and the costs transparently and provided thoughtful recommendations. Joan really understood our preferences, priorities and budget and created a design that was high-quality and achieved our vision for beauty, form and function while remaining budget conscious.

Throughout the project, they allowed us to focus on our “day jobs.” They took so much stress out of our lives by partnering so well with our contractors and solving any and all problems collaboratively and proactively. We had so much trust that our project was just getting done in the right way. We valued and appreciated all of this so much.

We are so happy with our home—what a transformation!—RO and SO, Clinton Street, Hoboken, NJ

Joan really brought our vision to life

Joan and team did a beautiful job on our home, including designing built-ins, built-in bar, fireplace, master bath and sourcing rugs, wallpaper, furniture and lighting. The scope of our project increased following our initial engagement due to unforeseen circumstances, but Joan was able to accommodate. Joan really brought our vision to life and we get so many compliments from every person that visits. She is not inexpensive, but she is upfront about what you should expect to spend, tries hard to stay within your budget and you absolutely get what you pay for!—EA and DA, Adams Street, Hoboken, NJ

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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
