Profile: Joan Lockhart-Grace, Certified Interior Redecorator™
"We invited Joan Lockhart-Grace to give us ideas for redecorating our house with the original intention of repainting our family room. Through the consultation, we were so impressed by Joan's patience and insights that we decided to go ahead and repaint the kitchen, living room and dining room as well based on her suggestions. We are very happy with the results and have even received compliments from visitors on the colour changes we have made. We would highly recommend Joan without reservation."
D. and M. Miller, Newmarket
After a successful career in environmental planning (B.A., York University), I decided to turn to a lifelong passion for interior decorating. I obtained my Interior Decorating certification (Seneca College) and began operating my own decorating business - JLG Interiors. I offered a full range of services, but educating clients about design and giving them the confidence to make decorating and purchasing decisions was what I enjoyed the most. It was very rewarding.
Use What You Own
Then I discovered Lauri Ward's Use What You Have® decorating system. Her philosophy resonated strongly with me. I was already using some of her principles, but I wanted to learn how to obtain results more effectively for my clients. I decided to complete the Use What You Have® training course and become a Certified Interior Redecorator™, joining the international Interior Redecorators Network®, the pre-eminent organization of one-day redecorators. Rooms Renewed with what you own represents my new direction and focus.
