Joy Coakley's bio Joy Coakley’s passion for style can be traced back to her childhood; she remembers rearranging her bedroom on a regular basis in search of something fresh. She pursued that passion all the way to a BFA in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and now lives her dream as a stylist. Her tastes lean toward the neutral and natural, with a goal of simple, organized beauty in her work. She finds harmony in combining eras of furniture and design. She is a tea drinker, a magazine addict, a carabiner aficionado, and a mother to her greatest teachers yet, her daughters Phoebe and Sybil.
