There's magic in living Beautifully.


Joshua SmitH


My journey began with an eight-year tenure in residential real estate in my home state of Texas. It was during this time that I purchased my first home, a small fixer-upper in the countryside with acres for contemplation. Throughout the renovation process, I discovered that my home was so much more than a shelter. It was an extension of me that made me smile every time I walked through the front door, a place where I could be inspired and re-connect with myself. And with this realization, my newfound passion for creating spaces was born.

Following my bliss, I went on to pursue a new career, moving across the country to attend the New York School of Interior Design. I later went onto join Steven Gambrel, a globally influential interior design firm, giving me the inspiration I needed to create my own design firm in 2013. Along the way, I earned certifications as a professional life coach and meditation teacher, further developing my unique perspective on the transformative effects of design.

Over the years, I’ve completed numerous full-scale interior design projects across the country, transforming not just spaces but lives. My work has been featured in Traditional Home, House Beautiful, Veranda, and the New York Times. Today, as an internationally recognized designer, I am settling into a new phase of my career that will allow me to share my offerings with a wider audience through education, brand collaborations, product development and my new design studio and showroom in Manchester Vermont, opening in the summer of 2024.

Wellness Starts AT Home

When seeking to improve the relationship between mind body and spirit, there's a tendency to overlook the role our environments play in enhancing the quality of our lives. When our homes are designed with the intention of love, light and beauty, they not only look better – they feel better. A beautiful interior is not just something we see; it is something we experience. It should engage the senses and nourish the soul.

Emerging evidence within the fields of neuroscience and neuro-aesthetics is showing what people like myself have long intuitively felt – there is link between our living spaces and our well-being. Our home environment is the very foundation to our healing, holding the power to shape who we are and how we show up in the world.

We can make the mundane more meaningful and find more joy in daily living when we consciously choose how we live in our homes. When you live better, you feel better, and when you feel better you do better in the world.


Transforming spaces, Transforming lives

In my journey, I learned that leading a blissful life starts with figuring out what your bliss looks like. It’s also important to recognize that the vision you have for your life today may change, because you're always evolving and growing. 

Interior design gives us the opportunity to reflect our growth and our vision for ourselves and our lives. When we create a space we love, it can change us – and the way we connect with one another and ourselves. I’ve witnessed firsthand, for both myself and my clients, that designing a home can mean transforming a life.

Let's design something beautiful


Having worked with Josh and his team twice previously, it was an easy decision to allow him total control and autonomy to design and furnish our new home. After setting a budget (which he hit!) and giving him the date we needed to move in, we got out of the way. Fast forward to just 11 days after our closing date, we walked into our new home feeling amazed, grateful, and rejuvenated. Our living areas were cozy and comfortable but also accommodating for visiting guests. Each bedroom was a relaxing enclave that so wonderfully reflected each family members’ personality. We are absolutely in love with our new home and every beautifully designed detail.

He has impeccable taste - finds and executes on time and on budget and most importantly he is responsive to my taste and opinions and a total JOY to work with.

Josh is a phenomenal decorator, amazing communicator, tremendous collaborator, and a very special person. If this sounds like it's too good to be true, it's not. For the renovation and remodeling of our apartment in New York City, the single best – and most important – decision we made was hiring Josh. From that point, he guided us through every tough decision (creative / logistical / financial) with a calm zen mixed with dynamic enthusiasm. We like to say he turned every difficult design decision into a "multiple-choice question," and his flexibility and understanding when things changed was paramount to keeping everything on track. We've been living in the home Josh designed for us for a year now, and we love it as much as the day we walked in. Hire Josh, and you will be happy in your home – it's as simple as that. (You'll also likely have a new great friend for life.)

Josh designs with his heart! He is one in a million! Thank you for creating the home of a lifetime. It’s hard to express how grateful and appreciative we are for your friendship.

Wellness, it is evident, goes beyond the yoga mat, the spa bathroom and the perfectly curated bedroom. It's equally about choosing colors, shapes and materials that please our eyes and soothe us when we touch them, about creating rooms and finding pieces that are unique to all of us and which tell a story, and about sourcing materials and furniture that do as little harm as possible to the planet, so that our homes can be more than just well-presented showpieces, but truly personalized havens, too.
