Jo did an amazing job helping me with the interior design for my new home. She set the overall direction and executed very well. Her attention to detail is impeccable. I would highly recommend working with her.

JoAnne is amazing and so easy to work with. She has helped me so much with pulling together the design for our Monte Rio vacation home. I will be hiring for more rooms in the future. I will add photos after project is complete.

JoAnne redesigned our living room for us. She quickly drew up some various options and then presented us with her design board. It was a pleasure to work with her in so many ways. She has the creative vision, a positive can-do attitude, open ears, flexibility and a clear love of interior design! I foresee using her again in the near future!!

I’d been in touch with Jo Ann for nearly 6 months to begin designing multiple rooms in our home. We scheduled a call and 2 hours before, she texts saying she’s just signed a large contract and won’t be able to work with me for another 6 months. Incredibly rude and unprofessional.
INSPIRING SPACES | Home Decorating Within Reach's reply
Hi Robin, I’m so sorry to have disappointed you. I did look forward to the possibility of working together. Following your initial inquiry in early October, 2020, I did provide my INSPIRING SPACES overview, business processes and rates, and you indicated you would be in touch when you were ready to start. Again, I heard from you in late February, 2021, and I provided sample decorating work, as requested, and additional complimentary resources. I next heard from you in mid-April, 2021, and you indicated you were ready to start your project and we scheduled a “complimentary get-acquainted call”. I regret I did not call you directly (versus communicating electronically) to explain I was no longer available to take on new clients after signing a large contract the day prior to our scheduled call. Given the scope of work of my newly contracted client, I would not have been able to provide you and your project with the attention it deserved. I’m truly sorry that our timing did not work out. I wish you all the best with your decorating project and much happiness in your new home. Sincerely, Jo Anne INSPIRING SPACES

I can’t say enough about my experience working with Home Decorating Within Reach. My husband and I agree on many things. We weren't sure the design of our bedroom would be one of them. He wanted a dark room, the darker the better, a soothing cave where he could easily fall asleep. I was looking for an inviting retreat that went beyond a room where we slept. JoAnne listened to our often mad ramblings. If there’s such a thing as a design therapist, she’s it. We found her to be talented, professional and dedicated. She created an elegant, tranquil room for us that we can’t wait to get to every night. We adore our new bedroom.
