Jo Pieters studied architecture at UCT Archi School and later, interior design at School of Interior Design. She has had high-end clients such as DHK and Louis Karol Architects (Jo founded an Interior division there). Working for larger corporate companies in the beginning of her career helped her gain invaluable experience and she firmly believes that it is important for youngsters to go into corporate, but then creating your own business later on.

One of Pieters’ greatest inspirations is Kelly Hoppin, British Interior Designer, who loves clean, basic, earthy and beautifully styled homes. She loves working one on one with her clients and she says that she usually becomes friends with them, keeping a relationship going and always being a phone call away for styling advice.
