FROM JOANNE… I love redoing, renovating and refreshing  old outdated motels, boutique-size hotels as well as teaming up with amazing firms like TruexCullins Architecture and Interiors (who I've done 5 fun projects with so far) on design and refresh projects. Whether it's just a budget-friendly refresh or an all out -- let's take it down to the studs -- I'll help bring it back to life!  xoxo Joanne
