Joan Breen Blanchard, Allied Member ASID
Joan was formally trained in Interior Design in New York, spent 10 years as a master-plan
designer at Dayton Hudson, before spending the past 20 + years running her own business in
Minnesota. She confidently takes on both large scale projects, as well as smaller more
intimate projects with the same passion and considers all to be inspiring and rewarding.
Her projects range from guidance only to turn-key installations.
Joan's strength lies in her imaginative spirit and belief in infinite possibilities! She
specializes in the use of color as well as the concept creation part of the design process.
She is able to tune into the collective needs of a client/family, to accurately bring out ideas
which create beautiful spaces that fulfill dreams and bring balance to life!
She brings a unique and creative perspective to each space, and truly believes that the
environment one lives in can transform and brighten ones perspective on life!
She considers it an honor to enter a client's home, guide them through the creative transformation
process, and feel the joy each client receives at the completion of the journey.
Outside of her design work, Joan's interests include nourishing the mind, body and soul to
create balance in life. She is a certified Colorprint Communications Consultant, practices Spring
Forest Qigong, is a seasoned curler at the St. Paul curling club, an active member of Awesome Women, enjoys
spending time with her husband Charlie and travels to play with her grandchildren.
