Clean Slate

Kerry Joyce wears only black, works in a space that is all white, and designs every day with multiple colors. The color scheme and aesthetic he embraces are carefully calculated by the Los Angeles­–based designer of textiles, furniture, lighting, rugs, and wallpapers.

“I wear black because I don’t have to think about what to wear,” Joyce says, “and I work in an all-white space I designed because my punchline for everything I design is the same: tranquility.”

Joyce knows that quiet interiors — actual and aesthetic — foster a vigorous creativity. The strongest emotions often result from the simplest details. “No matter what I design, I try to make something more than the sum of its parts,” says Joyce. From the outside, his warehouse space in Los Angeles’s Silver Lake neighborhood appears as yet another industrial facility. But within, Joyce has created a tranquil milieu that promotes creativity and thoughtfulness; it is an ideal example of how interior architecture and design work to create an actual mood.
