With both a Bachelor’s and a Master's degree in Interior Design, Kate Joy’s passions lie in historic preservation and sustainable design. After graduating from Illinois State University she worked for a residential design firm based in Chicago where she specialized in kitchen and bath design. Her love for historic architecture brought her to North Carolina to pursue her graduate degree, and she has since fallen in love with the climate and southern hospitality.
In her free time, Kate relishes time outdoors with her husband and two shelties. She also enjoys taking photographs, refinishing furniture, and baking.
