Tour Oh Joy’s HQ

We were overjoyed when we came across Domino’s Instagram feed today and was totally amazed by Oh Joy’s HQ. Yes, it is actually very homey. This structure was built next to Joy’s house and serves as an office and guest house. Oh Joy’s founder ,Joy Cho, had successfully transformed her graphic design studio into a life style brand years ago by collaborating with Target, Band-Aid and Keds, etc… . So the concept of her studio/guest quarter is more like a real-life living experiment. Let’s put this way, Cho *doesn’t* work in her new office/guesthouse. Instead she answers emails from the comfort of the pink bedroom and takes conference calls in the color-blocked kitchen, then breaks for lunch in the tropical-wallpapered breakfast nook. Well, would like to take a tour for her “work” studio? Here we go.

Studio Kitchen

We love, love love the color blocks in the kitchen. It is so much fun to work and cook in this kitchen, the space that is just like a candy store. However, the brass hardware, the hand-crafted brass floating wall shelving unit by a Philadelphia artist , geometric to-the-ceiling geometric tile wall and Terrazzo flooring all indicate some quite serious investment here. As Cho said,” It’s the things that will be a hassle to change in five years that are worth investing in.” We couldn’t agree with her more on this wise investment decision.

The kitchen cabinetry is from IKEA with a semi-custom twist. The cabinet doors were replaced.

2. Breakfast Nook

chic breakfast nook

We will have to say this breakfast nook is such a cozy yet super chic corner. The tropical wallpaper makes you feel having a breakfast in a tropical island while the yellow on the chairs injects a dose of sunshine to the space. The white wall with an abstract artwork has a lot of negative spaces and make this breakfast nook very breathable. The upholstered channel-back banquet, the table and chairs are all curved. The curves create a pleasant and relaxing vibe.

4. Navy Blue Bedroom

This navy-blue bedroom is quite moody and relaxing. Art by Cho’s friends, photographers Jesse and Jimmy Marble, hangs alongside a bentwood sculpture by Katie Gong (opposite), breaking up the squareness of the high headboard.

5. Blush Bedroom

This is such a dreamy bedroom. We love the polka- dart pattern on the bedding and the pillow which are masterfully paired with the abstract blush wallpaper to create a playful yet soft and romantic atmosphere.
