How might we help bring some joy and wit into your home?
In 2006, what started as a love of decor, with need for function on a frugal budget, owners Whitney and Michael began their domestic journey together as a young couple. They were 2 college kids with a baby on the way. Together they blended their needs, fondness for bright,happy colors and patterns with their quarky personalities, and made their first apartment feel like a home.
The process of hunting for the right decor item, or piece of furniture that offered the most comfort and durability went from a need to a hobby they were both passionate about. Together they would rehab furniture to fufill their needs and their design aesthetic. The goal at the end of the day was to create a space that they could come home to that was happy, cozy and full of joy and wit.
Need, turned hobby and passion soon became profession as Whitney began freelance home design which evolved into her and Mike opening a small shop "Joy & Wit" in Granby center; offering home design services, accent furniture, home decor and gifts, They brought in products by local artisans and crafters and greatly enjoyed connecting with their vendors and clientele.
Most recently Joy& Wit began offering DIY classes where people in the community could come together and custom design crafts for their home. These classes illicited such a good response, it became apparent that they were outgrowing their shop, so they moved down the road to their current location at 2 Salmon Brook Street in Granby CT, right on the Simsbury, Granby town line.
Today Joy & Wit Interiors are proud to offer a variety of classes. Some DIY crafts are personally designed by Whitney and others are created and taught by other local businesses, artists and vendors. During these classes a variety of decor, furniture and gifts curated by Whitney and Mike remain available for purchase.
They are also pleased to offer some open studio days where local additional crafters, vendors, and artists are invited in and will have their wares available for purchase.
