Oh Joy in Better Homes and Gardens

If you check out this month's issue of Better Homes and Gardens, Bob, Ruby and I are in it! We're honored to be a part of the September Stylemaker Issue. In the piece, I talk about my inspirations, keeping my home stylish with a baby, and what's next for Oh Joy. You can see the whole story right here or find it on newsstands now.

Thanks so much to the team at Better Homes and Gardens for having us and to photographer David Tsay, stylist Scott Horne, and hair and makeup artist Danielle Walch for your amazing talent!

I am a long time reader of your blog, so when I first saw the pic of you and your family I said to myself ‘oh, there’s Joy from Oh Joy!’…then I realized ‘omg it’s Joy!’..I was so excited to see all of your hard work pay off you would have thought we were life long friends, lol.

  15. Congratulations! I read the article and *had* to check out your blog!
    I love the duvet cover (duvet?) in your bedroom. Do you have any advice for where to find one that might be similar?

  16. Your home is so beautiful! Ruby’s room is my favorite. I love how it’s so colorful, yet subdued at the same time. And I just love her rug! Could you tell me where you got it?

  17. Love your style aesthetic, and of course Emily Henderson was your interir designer, no wonder I love the rooms so much. One question though, where did you get those bamboo bowls, I’ve been looking for something durable like that that my kids can use everyday

  18. Hi Joy, I am in love with everything Oh Joy! Thank you for the inspiration. I was wondering if you could share where you found the fitted slipcover for the couch…

  19. Gorgeous article, gorgeous family! Can you share what paint color your living/dining area is?! It’s a beautiful “greige” that pairs wonderfully with gold frames. I’ve been trying to find a similar color with no luck. Thank you for any tips!
