“We retained Kimberly JOI McDonald to help us design window dressings for three sliding glass doors and our living room window. We wanted the window dressings to be distinctive and unique. We also wanted a “Wow Factor” especially for the living room window.  Kimberly listened closely to our likes and dislikes and presented various designs for us to consider.  Since each window was in a different room, we decided on a completely different treatment for each window.”

“The next phase involved picking out fabrics for each window dressing.  We decided to work together in the selection process, and all three of us had to agree on each selection.  This turned out to be a fun adventure for us. Kimberly was a joy to work with.  She has a discerning eye, good taste, and an excellent sense of humor. Kimberly demonstrated her extensive experience and expertise in comparing fabrics and helped us make the best selections for our project.  In so doing, she discussed the merits of each choice with us and how the fabrics, sheers, accessories, and decorations worked together.  She worked tirelessly to make sure we were 100% satisfied.”

“Kimberly ordered the materials and oversaw the production and installation of our window treatments. We were very pleased with the results and have received many compliments from our guests.  All of the window dressings had the distinctive quality and “Wow Factor” we had wanted.  Kimberly also helped us with other aspects of interior design; such as, purchasing complementary furnishings (custom sofas, custom cocktail table and end tables, chandeliers, table lamps, wall art, sculptures), and decorations for our home.”

“Based on our experiences working with Kimberly JOI McDonald over the past two and one-half years, we can heartily recommend her for your interior design needs, and we are certain you will enjoy working with her.”

“I was very pleased with the my Kitchen Remodel and Family Room Design Project that was just under approx. $30,000, which was below my budget. My project was for a major kitchen remodel, labor (electrical, paint, kitchen appliance installation, granite installation, back splash installation, wall paint for kitchen and adjacent family room, granite counter top, granite bar top, granite desk top, (4) new high-end dining room chairs on casters, chandelier, (3) pendant lights, (8) new stainless steel rimmed recessed lights, stainless steel appliances: custom counter depth refrigerator, farm house sink, faucet, dishwasher, chimney wall hood, electric cook top, microwave/convection oven, wall oven, warming drawer, custom kitchen back splash design with glass and mirrored tiles, custom window treatments (labor, fabrication and installation), and accessories.

Kimberly JOI McDonald, was fantastic from the moment she entered my home. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm to provide me with the remodel job that would be, was second to none.  My new kitchen and family room will be very fashionable thirty 30 years from now.  I would recommend Designing JOI, LLC to everyone I know and those I don’t know.  I would hire the firm again whenever I would need another project.”

Dr. Bertha Pendleton, Ed.D – Retired Superintendant, San Diego School District, Queensridge Las Vegas Development

“A clear message of old and new….of career and life experience,
An artistic presentation in multiple forms,
A historical cultural presence,
A background that projects strength and gentle nature,
A home, not a museum!
A warm blend of metal, glass, woods and fabric,
A careful structuring of living areas and spaces, capturing the inside utilitarian needs and the outside beauty of vegetation and light.
Understated elegance and beauty!” 

“I am privileged to have found a gifted designer, KIMBERLY JOI,who respected and captured these desired qualities, and put them together in a place I call home.  I get to enjoy this every day!”

“We had the pleasure of working with Kimberly JOI McDonald and could not be more pleased! We wanted a fresh, clean and contemporary look in the lobby of our office and Kimberly did a phenomenal job! The finished product was breathtaking, far exceeding the high expectations we had for the project. Given the budget allowed, the time allotted and the standard of quality we expected, the results were truly amazing, bordering on perfection. Needless to say we look forward to working with Kimberly on future projects and highly recommend her expertise to others.”

“I had a wonderful experience with this designer, Kimberly Joi McDonald. She took the vision of our daughter and created a bedroom that she will enjoy for years to come.

She made it look easy and took care of us personally.  I sincerely appreciate her thoughtfulness and her personal attention to us, her customers! I wish her continued success and would highly recommend her to anyone.”

“I am so pleased to have chosen JOI for my kitchen remodel. She was awesome with assisting in my decisions for my very unique design. We stepped out of the box and JOI found some awesome detailed pieces. She has a real eye for design. My project was in my “new to me” house where she designed and we remodeled the kitchen from “Frumpy’ to “Storybook Victorian Rococco”.  Crystals everywhere, including the back splashes, pastel paint colours, kitchen bar with new beautiful stainless sink with granite counter tops, lastly the cabinets repainted with distinctively designed hardware.  She was always there for build-outs, watching that the contractors were doing things correctly, or for the lighting gently handled and hung with care. JOI even picked out all the supplies from paint quality down to grout color. That attention to detail! She is always a bundle of ‘JOI!’ and was energetic, motivated and very fun to work with!  She shares ideas and communicates visions very well.  Highly recommend this precious jewel.”

“Designing JOI brought joy back into our home. We bought an older home, and, of course everything in it was very dated. JOI came in and gave us her ideas and once we gave her our vision, she ran with it! JOI was always there during the demo/reconstruction of the kitchen remodel, making sure everything was on time and making sure all details were perfect and she even comforted our dogs whom were in the change of it all.  She.  Really.  Cares! – about the client! Her particular eye to the tiniest of details are right on-even down to each knob on our cupboards.  Very trustworthy! From doorknockers to window treatments, Designing  JOI is the best! Thank you JOI!” 

Barbara Moore Massie – Owner, B. Moore Beautiful & Hairstylist

“It is always difficult to have workmen in my home, but Ms. McDonald was always there from the beginning to the end.  After her design was completed, I truly loved it.  My home expresses who I am.”

Dr. Barbara P. Jackson, D.O. – Retired Local Government Executive, City of Las Vegas

“Initial consult to discuss the work to be performed.  Generated ideas based on theme decided upon.  Offered many suggestions for furniture/fixture and color schemes. Handled all ordering/delivery.  Flexible in making changes to accommodate my budget. Listened intently to my ideas and desires.  Courteous and generous.  Continual supervision through completion of project.  Consistently touched base to assure my satisfaction.”

I am thrilled to script this recommendation for my colleague, Kimberly Joi McDonald. I’ve known Kimberly for over five years . This intellectual powerhouse is the CEO of her bespoke interiors company and a very talented interior designer. We collaborated on a charity vignette design for our local symphony. Kimberly is a former seasoned lobbyist for local government and now an award-winning designer in our community. She is erudite, exact, and fair in her community dealings and an absolute “joi” to work with. I enthusiastically endorse her and highly recommend her skills in the public and private sector.”
