A Peek Inside the Fabulous and Inspiring Mind of Joyce Downing Pickens with the Lh Design Questionnaire
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Time with family on a boat on the Italian coast!
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Since I don’t have kids…my dog baby! She is my pride and joy and breaks chihuahua stereotypes left and right, ha!
What profession does your alter ego have?
Food critic! I am a bit of a foodie so this would be my dream profession if I weren’t designing! Now only if I could write like Johnathan Gold…detail details!
The project you will never forget.
This Dining room! It’s one of my all-time favorites and was so fun to see come to life.
Your favorite business tool or resource.
IVY! I would not be able to survive without it! Other than that, google drive!
The most timeless design.
Axel Vervoordt – modern yet era-less.
The biggest design faux pas.
The boho trend…
Your design motto.
Texture is everything!
If you were to design a room around one KOKET piece, which would it be, and why?
Ooo this piece evokes an old-world romance I can just see the room now!
Love happens when…
You learn to love yourself.
