About JML Casual Home

JML Casual Home Design is a small individually owned interior design firm, located in South Portland Maine. JML specializes in creating warm, comfortable, casual living spaces reflecting the client’s lifestyle, taste and personal budget. For over 20 years I have traveled internationally as a home furnishings product and interior home designer. Primarily working in Maine, I have designed and furnished homes in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, California and Puerto Rico.

Whether you are building or furnishing a new home, moving from out of state, downsizing, renovating or preparing your house for the market, my comprehensive design services will save you time and money in the long run.

My goal as an artist and business woman is to be remembered by each client as approachable, trustworthy, respectful of their time, opinion and budget with a passion and wealth of experience in the world of design.

Our Services

As a full service Interior Design business Joanne takes care of every detail of the project. From the floor plans, material selection, colors and lighting design to sourcing furniture, rugs, window treatments and artwork, Joanne does the legwork and coordination to make it all happen.

“Joanne helped us totally transform our house. Each room now has great colors, furniture, lighting and warmth. She created spaces that are really enjoyable. The best part of working with Joanne is that she figured out our taste and worked with that (rather than imposing her preferences), did all the shopping (I didn’t spend 5 minutes in a furniture or paint store) and made the house look great without it looking like I had hired a designer. My only regret is that I didn’t find Joanne 10 years ago.” - Nancy & Mike, Portland, ME
