FR Review:
Operating at the top of his form, Kerry Joyce delivers subtle expressions of handsome harmony. His appeal is in his crystalline focus, resolute professionalism and accountability. Joyce's work consistently features cream, white and beige with undeniably genteel contrasting forms of mahogany and ebony. Recently, luxurious linen velvets, shots of moderate color and intricate tapestries have crept into the profile. While modern in hue, the designs are imbued with historical references. Believing strongly in the integration of architecture and interior design, Joyce is highly involved with every detail.

Raised in Massachusetts, Joyce trained at NYU in set design, for which he later received an Emmy. He moved to Los Angeles in 1973, and in the 1980s ran Designer Resource, an architectural elements shop. Joyce pursued interior design beginning in 1992, making quite an impression in a relatively short time. Commissions include work for actors Jami Gertz and Paul Hogan, Clipper coach Mike Dunleavy, and design-savvy CEOs like Ian Schrager and Tom Freston, CEO of MTV Networks. Joyce and his team of ten do just three to six projects at a time, about half of which are from the ground up. Homes tend to be over 10,000 square feet with product ranging from Rose Tarlow to Paris flea market treasures to retail finds. Manufacturers have called upon Joyce for his fine lines, which can be seen in lighting from Palmer Hargrave and Joyce's own line of furniture, displayed in LA at Dessin Fournir.

Joyce's design fees range substantially depending upon scope, but they are in line with peers. There are standard product commissions, and oversight fees are charged for ground-up architectural projects, with which Joyce is quite involved. More complicated custom furniture may see hourly fees. While clearly expensive, clients tell us Joyce always sticks to the timetable and budget, and he offers economic alternatives. Adoring clients say Joyce is "sincere to the core" and "incapable of doing anything less than perfectly." HB Top Designers, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004.

Representative Client Comments:
"Extremely thoughtful, tranquil rooms." "You get exactly what you expect." "He's absolutely the best at what he does." "He focuses on every small element, clear in his view that it makes a difference." "An artist's approach with an artist's specific point of view." "Thank goodness he reworked the architect's plans and made the house flow." "Architecture is his forte." "Such a fine person." "He demands that the vendors' quality and timeliness match his own standards, or he will use someone else." "Kerry's designs are stellar, but the aesthetic can occasionally conflict with function." "He said it would be ready on July 1, and on July 1 all the beds were made and the candles lit." "While known for his tone-on-tones, he had great fun with our colorful Hawaiian theme." "Not the guy for you if you do not have a full budget." "I know of at least three people who hired Kerry immediately after they saw what he did in our house."
