"We can't recommend Sydney enough. We hadn't worked with a designer before but thought we needed to when we purchased our first home as coming from a condo, our new house needed a lot of furniture and just overall decorating love. We were really anxious to work fast as we were living in an empty house and she quickly made it home for us. I was a little intimidated to be working with a "designer" but I knew I was going to spend quite a bit on furniture and I didn't want to second guess myself and wanted to make sure the house flowed nicely and had a unique look vs just throwing stuff together that I liked. She pushed us out of our comfort zone in terms of our style but we LOVE it! What I liked most about working with Sydney is that she really was cognizant of our budget and where we wanted to invest vs not. For instance, we were OK with Amazon, Wayfair and Target for some items (since we have two kids) but we wanted to be sure to have sturdy, quality furniture for other things like a kitchen table, chairs, and sofa. Sydney went from being our designer to our friend. We just adore her."

"Working with you was a joy! I appreciated our first visit as we got to know one another and you began to study our current décor and listen to our visions for something different. It did not go unnoticed that you paid attention to those items we have in our home that are favorites, have special meaning or still worked as you incorporated them into the future plan. Your second visit you gently moved us along to focus on minimizing our decorating as we had shared that a priority was to de-clutter. As you know there were some suggestions you made that we were not totally sure was our taste….and we decided we trusted your plan and those are some of the areas that were refreshed that we love the most! Your pricing was reasonable and we did feel we got good value from your suggestions and guidance. While we are still waiting for the final touches to arrive and complete the plan, we are loving the new feel we have in our home. As you know, we have already recommended you to our daughter and she too is thrilled to be working with you! Yes, we would recommend you to others. Once this pandemic is over and we can once again entertain, our friends and family are going to be amazed at our new look! We will send them your way!

“I have absolutely loved getting to work with Sydney! She takes the time not only to get to know my style, but to understand the greater story behind my style so that she can instill a deeper purpose within her designs. She cares about what energizes me, what brings me comfort, and what makes me come alive and incorporates those values into the space. And no idea is too crazy for her! She has continually found ways to incorporate my love of plants and nature into my indoor spaces, and I love that she cares about my unique little quirks. She believes full heartedly in the power of design, and it truly shows in the zeal with which she works. She is resourceful, intentional, and able to create beauty from the simplest of materials. I can’t wait for my next project with Sydney Joy Studio!”
