Hey, y’all, I’m Christen Anderson of Christen Joy Homes!
I’m thrilled to have the pleasure to be a part of multiple Roers’ projects and to be featured as a guest blogger for them.
Before we jump into my work with Roers, let me tell you a bit about me!
I’m a Minnesota native that has always had an eye for décor and design.
After returning to the Midwest and deciding to build my home in Moorhead, I was able to put my knack for decorating into practice. While going through the home building process, I realized that I had a deep passion for all things décor and design.
After constantly being asked by friends to help with their home decorating projects, I finally decided to give it a go, and Christen Joy Homes was born.
It’s my unwavering passion for travel, art, and design — combined with my extensive marketing and project management background — that have created the foundation I’ve built my business on.
As an avid traveler who has been to 23 countries (and counting!), I have a broad approach to decorating. I love to bring what I’ve seen in my travels into the spaces I’m working on.
My personal style is what I like to call “beach chic.” I love pops of color, neutral “classic pieces” that include heirlooms, investment pieces, along with art or mementos from my travels. I see my home as an extension of me – full of personality.
I understand that not everyone has a giant budget to work with, but with a fresh coat of paint, new pillows, a throw, and flowers or a pop of greenery, a room can be transformed.
I approach design for my clients with one key thing in mind: it should reflect the client, not me. It’s not my space, and I want the work I do to showcase the tastes of the people who hire me.
I’m passionate about helping my clients and ensuring each project is aligned with their unique vision. I love the opportunities each client brings to me, whether that’s a limited budget, asking for ideas that haven’t been seen in the Fargo-Moorhead area, or whipping something up on a short deadline.
Creativity is at the heart of what I do, and when I can start with a blank slate, it really allows me to shine and figure out new ways to make the most of the potential of the space.
My projects span everything from home staging, accessorizing living room spaces, working on full remodels, and new construction, for both commercial and residential spaces.
Creating the perfect-for-you space is all about using my keen eye for decor and your aesthetic to create that inviting space you’ve been dreaming about.
When I’m not busy working on design projects, I’m a passionate art collector, a keen traveler and love to host dinner parties at my home complete with floral arrangements, place settings, and delicious home-cooked meals.
