If you are new to Elizabeth Joan Designs, welcome to you too! We are Erin and Emily, two sisters who have a passion for DIY and creativity. We love to remodel, refurbish, and up-cycle. Plus, we both have a very similar decorating style which we would describe as Neutral Modern Farmhouse. We love to keep things simple and have a repurposed and comfortable look. Kind of classic meets contemporary.

Both Emily and I enjoy using neutral decor and furniture in our homes. Whites, grays, blacks, creams, and natural wood tones make up the majority of the items we own.

Some people may find that boring, but we think that all of the neutrals in our homes gives us a sense of calm, since we both have some rambunctious, but fun, little kids in our lives.

Neutrals also work well for our fickle decorating minds. It is easy to switch things out to another room and we can easily add pops of color or pattern in with accessories if we ever get the urge for variation.

As much as we love a cozy a home, we also enjoy adding modern elements to change things up, but also add a little structure.

Contemporary lines and patterns mix easily with our simple neutral decor and still allow the rooms to remain inviting and warm.

One of the strongest design styles in our homes is the Farmhouse style. It is kind of a mix of cottage and industrial with it’s warm woods, painted refinished furniture pieces, and metal structures. We really enjoy that re purposed nostalgic feel that antiques can add to take you back to a simpler time. Eventually, we would love to add in some plank walls and maybe a sliding barn door or two!
