Real Interior Design Stories | Jay and Joyce in Augusta, GA


you know the house wasn’t built yet so
we became met with the design team and we figured out how big this room was
gonna be and then since the house was built on a slab we had to figure out
where to put the electrical outlet and so Jake measured you know where that
would be with the sofa and so then we had to go the Builder so this is exactly
where we want the electrical outlet and then when the house is being built it
looks a lot different as soon as we walked in and I said Joyce that electrical
outlet isn’t in the spot that I think it should be in. But it worked out
everything’s good because I would have had the sofa like about four feet back
that way. So that’s why we go to them right because they know what they’re
doing and I don’t hi I’m Joyce Howard and I’m Jay and I
walked into La-Z-Boy because I was looking for recliners that didn’t like
look like something my father would sit in because Jay did not want those. So I
wanted to see what was available. So my first thoughts when I came into La-Z-Boy
was that the styles were different than they were ten years ago.
Just more modern looking more updated We’ve never done the in-home design
program before so that was exciting and seeing what they could put together for
us. Sometimes I don’t trust my own taste I don’t know if I always coordinate
things well so I wanted help with that so we came in with my daughter because I
trust her taste and I think she knows my taste better than I know my own and we
picked out our sofa. I like the style of it so we picked out the sofa and I
wanted something clean looking not patterned so that anything else would go
with it and then we started looking at fabrics for the chairs and they had the
chair that we purchased in a different color and I like that so we picked out
the blue because I knew I want it blues and then the pillows Samantha asked how
I felt about florals and I said, “oh I like florals.” and she picked up the
pillow covers and they just put it all together nicely. We didn’t want something
that would look like an old man would be sitting in it. yeah and we came and showed up well we
had the blue prints and they laid this all out from the blueprints of the house
we didn’t have to house built when we bought all this. Probably wasn’t even
under construction at the time. Well I met Joyce and her daughter first when
they came into the store and she was she kind of knew what she wanted but
not not specifically like she had a general idea of the feel that she
wanted for the room so, you know, but it was really easy from her description of
what what kind of field that she wanted environment in the room to ask questions
and get an idea then we’ve set up appointment coming her to sit down with
the design team and they had the blueprints for the house and based on
that they’ve laid out how the furniture would look and we came in and sat and
looked at it and like I said it was it was exciting because the house wasn’t
even built yet so that was the first time we’ve got to kind of see how the
room was going to look in the size of the room and how the furniture was going
to be in it. We came in for the presentation and they had it all
laid out and they made it they made us feel really special. They had snacks and stuff
for us there. I found that really exciting because like I said this house, the Builder never built this house before so we couldn’t go through
and see that see what the house looked like, so not only did we get to see how
the furniture was gonna lay out, it was the first time we got to kind of
visualize what the house was gonna be like. So it’s just a whole process ever I
mean it was only the furniture wise and the house wise it was just, it was just a
great experience. I had an image in my head and Samantha just made it come
alive in the house and it’s exactly what I wanted. The best part was just seeing
everything come together and the house looks finished now because when we
started there was no house. So having it all finished and just look beautiful.
The whole experience with you guys has been, I guess really rewarding, like this
is my favorite house of all my customers that I’ve done. And
this is one of we don’t get to do it all the time so where we get to start from
the very beginning and see it at the very end, you know, so this was really
cool being able to see everything come together the artwork and the the
finishing pieces and you know that’s my favorite part and getting to see how
happy she is with how everything turned out and knowing that I got to help with
that. So that was my favorite part. He has a stereo system and I wanted it hidden
so the entertainment console was definitely for him, everything else is
for me. I would do it all over again, if we had to do it all over again I would
do it all over again. Yeah me too it was fun. I wish all my customers could
be like Joyce and Jay Howard. They were great. We’ve done everything we’ve
done I think we’ve done every room here. aside
from the guest room and the office. yeah but we did we did the bedroom, we
did the the living room, we did the dining room, we did it all. The whole
house is a La-Z-Boy house.
