Joy interiors is based in the rural village of Appleby Magna, Derbyshire. I work from my home - a 300 year old cottage which I share with my husband and three young boys.

I have always had a real passion for homes and interiors, which has grown over the years. Increasingly being asked by friends/family for advice within their own homes, I realised I had a natural flair which I built upon by gaining my formal design qualifications;
 ( NOCN level 3 diploma in Art and Design, Professional Interior Design Course from the National Design Academy in Nottingham - including, colour theory, paint techniques, lighting, planning, project management, design skills and more).

To put it simply - I love houses and being able to help transform them into unique homes.

 I have been involved with interior design and styling for over 10 years which ultimately led to the creation of Joy Interiors.

 I really  listen to my clients which enables me to create beautiful, stylish and affordable interiors.
 As my client testimonials show, I have a relaxed,  friendly manner and yet still retain a professional approach.

No enquiry is too big or small, I am always willing to help whatever the budget may be and I am very careful to ensure it stays within this.

Over the last few years, Joy Interiors has grown and I have now built a strong team around me and can provide a variety of services including -  soft furnishings - (Curtains/Roman Blinds/Cushions and accessories), carpentry, kitchen design, hand painted furniture, bespoke lampshades and stained glass.

"A massive thank you to Nicky from Joy interiors, who has made my house a home. She was amazing, and arrived with lots of ideas to transform spaces I didn't know what to do with. Nothing has been too much trouble and I love the new look"

"In our profession we try our utmost to make our client families feel comfortable and at ease as soon as possible and the way Nicky has designed our colour schemes and the interior furnishings of our funeral homes to emphasise those feelings is remarkable. The feedback we have received from the general public, our client families and our staff has been so positive that we have now used Joy Interiors on six refurbishment projects to date and we have been extremely pleased with the results each and every time"

" Just a quick mail to thank you very much for such gorgeous seat cushions and place mat!!!!! They are all just perfect, exactly how I wanted them. Now my kitchen looks complete - thank you very much :) I would definitely recommend you to everyone "


"Can I again convey my appreciation and personal thanks to you and your team for the excellent interior refurbishment that you have to date provided for my section of the business.

You clearly have a vision and an eye for detail unsurpassed which can only further enhance our clients experience when they choose ourselves to care for their loved one.

I think St Marksis superb and you have equally worked wonders with our facility at Penn, colleagues have nothing but praise for your efforts."
