We renovated our kitchen, added an upstairs office, and updated our living room. Joan was enormously helpful in both design choices and colors. She dragged us out of our comfort zone, taught us to appreciate the importance of working within a color palette, guided us in selecting the perfect counter tops and flooring materials, and even custom designed paint colors. The result is a beautiful, warm, coordinated space that we absolutely love. A year later, we always ask ourselves, “What would Joan think?” when we look at accessories, colors, even picture placement. She educated us, made great recommendations, and was a pleasure to work with.

Joan, of Double FF Design, helped us transform our workman-like office into a space more befitting our status and image of a boutique creative marketing agency. Before Joan helped us reconfigure and redesign our office, we struggled to make use of the inherited layout. Double FF Design helped us maximize our space to accommodate more employees and, in so doing, actually made the space feel larger, more open, and infinitely more supportive of creative collaboration. Joan helped us select the right furnishings (mindfully staying within our budget) and lighting to create an attractive and functional workplace. Not only are we thrilled with the final result, our clients always make a point of complimenting us on an office environment as creative as the work we produce in it.

When HYDRANT moved into our new office we needed help from lighting to furniture to paint - the whole deal. Joan worked with us to understand our needs and how we were going to use the space. What we have done so far we love (and everyone one who comes to our space loves it)we just have more we want to do. Thanks Joan.

A friend referred us to Joan. We had tried on our own to pick colors from the paint store, with no success. Joan listened to what we wanted to achieve, and helped to create the perfect mood throughout the house. We get compliments on the color palate all the time. Often times, however, people don’t mention individual colors, but how the rooms just flow with each other. I would recommend Joan to anyone struggling with color selection and how to create the right environment for their space!

Joan was able to deliver high style working with our modest budget. We appreciated her finding novel solutions tailored to our funky space. Joan was able to come up with solutions that three very different people each found amazing. Joan listens well. And she always measures three times!

Joan helped us choose a beautiful color scheme for our new home. I loved that she took the time to look at our furniture and envision it in the room and that she also asked us about our lifestyle and taste to come up with a palette that would complement everything. It definitely worked - two years later we still love our colors!

When I decided to have my entire home painted, I knew I’d need some professional help with color selection. I was referred to Joan and, after calling her for a preliminary phone consultation, she came over and spent two full hours with me at my home. Together we worked through each room, discussing color and any other interior design questions I had. Joan offered new and fresh suggestions that were catered to my own style preferences and were also cost and design conscious. After the consultation, I felt confident and satisfied. We made more progress in those two hours than I could have made on my own in two weeks!

Joan helped me make specific decisions on color selections for every room and in addition, I was also able to get tips for lighting, floors, and furniture ideas! Now my home reflects my style and has a sophisticated feel. I plan on working with her again in the future and I would highly recommend Double FF Design to anyone without any reservations.

Joan helped us pick out great colors for each room in our house and helped us select all the materials we used in our kitchen remodel. The colors look great together, and we are pleased with the result!

Joan has an incredible knack for choosing perfect color palettes. She literally transformed our home into an inspiring, beautiful space using many different colors that all complimented each other. She is a true artist.

I had no idea what colors would look best in my new condo. Joan quickly knew what would and her suggestions were spot on. Two years later, I still love the colors and I always receive compliments. I would most definitely hire her again!

Joan helped us see in color. We love the way she captured our values in colorscapes that we enjoy everyday. For our east coast home, she took one look at our large outdoor test patches and saved us from disaster. For the interior of my father's west coast condo, she translated our inspiration of colors found in nature into subtle shades and unexpected combinations that work together to create a larger peaceful whole.

Joan has a keen sense of style and ability to see every room individually as well as the environment as a whole. She suggested paint colors to enhance what we already had and colors we would not have thought of otherwise. Our place looks great and we always receive tons of compliments from everyone who comes by!
