Home Pros 2018: Joy In Décor Ocala

Yohanna Alvarez, Interior Decorator

What inspired you to follow your passion and go back to school for interior design? 

First, my children. The opportunity to be my own boss and have flexibility in my schedule was always on my wish list. Although this career is very demanding, I can still manage to have a nice work-life balance. Second, Ocala. When I was looking for my dream home, I noticed the need for an interior decorator with fresh and innovative new ideas. As a businesswoman, I turned that experience into an opportunity and the opportunity into a reality.

How do you work to personalize your design services for each client? 

A comprehensive interview is always my first step. Once I define my client’s style, preferences and lifestyle, I proceed to create an efficient space plan. It’s always my goal to create a beautiful, functional space.

How has your master’s degree and background in business helped you better serve your clients and run your own business? 

Decorating thrives on creativity. However, with the lack of project management skills, it cannot become a successful project. All projects convey a critical process for which the decorator is accountable. My background in business makes me a good negotiator, a good decision maker and a good budget administrator.
