Joanne Hill

Joanne’s fascination and inspiration for design started in her early teens. Growing up in a century home she was always painting and decorating the various rooms in their home. On summer break from studies while attending the University of Toronto in the Psycholinguistics program, Joanne completed her first total kitchen renovation in her childhood home. This love of design and décor was now fully planted.

After a successful career in IT, Joanne has returned to her first love. Over the last few years, she has continued her studies in the Interior Design program while working in the design and décor industry, recently joining the team at 2 Co. Design.

Joanne loves to help clients find the perfect furniture for their space or add the finishing touches to their décor through the selection of accessories.
