Check out our first client spotlight! We asked Christen a few questions about herself and her business. Here’s what she had to say about it all...
Hello! I’m Christen and I’m known as Chris to my siblings, Auntie to my niece and nephews and Christen Joy to my clients. I’m a small business owner of @livechristenjoy , a lifestyle company that focuses on interior design of both commercial and residential spaces. •What’s your favorite part/aspect of designing? Each project and client are unique – no project is alike. My absolute favorite is creating a space that exudes who the client is – the biggest compliment is when the client feels 100% at home.
•What are a couple tips you have for individuals looking at redesigning? 1. If you’re not ready to take the plunge to invest in a designer I say, ‘trust your gut’! We underestimate the power of our natural instincts of what we see and think ‘I LOVE that!’. When you hear that voice, I say ‘buy it!’. You won’t regret it. 2. If you’re interested in working with an expert, come with your ideas and then trust them to run with it and make everything come to life. We’re here to make this process easy and fun for you! •Have you ever redesigned your hair? Aka a big hair change! Well, this is where my second recommendation comes into play! I’m a designer, not a hair pro like my crazy talented stylist Lisa! Gone are the days where I search Pinterest to figure it out. I come in and ask Lisa what the latest trends are, what would work well for my hair, what I like and dislike and then I let her take it from there.
•What’s your go-to product and what makes you love it? I’m absolutely HOOKED on Moroccan Oil and Amika. The smells, the branding, the amazing results! I love how Lisa also recommends products for me as I talk through anything I’m concerned about such as breakage in the wintertime. Not only does she provide recommendations of product but tips that you’ll never find on a bottle!
