Joanna Harrison

You can call me a dreamer, a designer, or a dirty handed do it yourself-er.
A creative communicator, a collaborator or a cactus collector.
A planner, a plant lover, or a textile hoarder.
A vintage shopper, a desert loving mama or a moodboard making master.

The name’s Joanna but you can call me Jo.

I’m a sunshine and lollipops obsessed designer living and working in Los Angeles, California. I’ve got my mom’s hippie heart, my dad’s analytic mind and my own curious desire to figure it all out. With my passion for interiors and background in branding and retail design, I create hand crafted spaces with character that tell a story.

I am currently available for freelance art direction and interior design projects. Let's create something together!

Arlo’s Modern Nature Inspired Nursery

When planning our son’s nursery, I wanted to create a bright and cheerful space that felt youthful and boyish. The initial inspiration came from a Mary Blair print we got at Disneyland, but after choosing his middle name, Wilder; the theme pivoted towards a natural woodland theme with animals and arrows.
We are renting so the decor decisions needed to be easily changeable. I created a bold statement wall behind the crib using removable decals. The nightstand and dresser were customized with wood knobs, to tie together the wood tones in the room. Teepees, arrows and woodland animals helped round out the theme, along with some of our favorite kid-like tchotchkes displayed on vintage steel shelves in the reading nook. My favorite items are the turkish blanket hanging on the crib and the custom bench cushion. To top it all off, we updated the lighting fixtures with vintage inspired shades from Schoolhouse Electric, and got a customized piece from Etsy above the changing table with Arlo’s name spelled out in rope.
