About Jo Wood
Hello! I created Showhouse Ready because of my intense passion for the Home. I truly enjoy helping our clients with all of their decorating and design needs.
I have over 25 years of experience in the field of interior decorating and art. I graduated from college with a major in Business Administration, a minor in Art. Early in my career I owned & managed an art gallery in Avon, Connecticut. This led to work as a corporate art consultant, where I advised clients on the purchase and acquisition of commissioned and investment artwork.
For 10 years I was a designer for Ethan Allen Home Interiors. This position gave me wide exposure to a variety and range of homes, from small to large, traditional to contemporary. While at Ethan Allen, I was a 3-time winner of their National “Circle of Excellence” Award. This is recognition for outstanding design skills, sales, and customer service. Some of my most recent projects have included the homes of a number of high-profile executives and celebrities.
Why Showhouse Ready?
What sets me apart from other companies is my PERSONAL SERVICE, particularly with Window Treatments & Re-Upholstery. Box Stores & On-Line Companies will not come to the home, or offer advice and design ideas, at No Charge. Especially for those who are home-bound, or have no time to shop, this is an enormous benefit. I am available 7 days a week, and work around my client’s schedules.
There is no decorating challenge that I cannot tackle. With my years of experience, I have worked with almost every home decorating project or challenge. There is a new approach to decorating homes, whether it is a Millennial Home-Owner, Empty-Nester or Down-Sizing Senior, I can assist them all.
I offer many of my window treatments with Motorization. This is a great option for those with high windows that cannot be reached. For some it offers the ease of opening from one to 15 windows with a small battery-operated remote. Also for seniors who have no mobility in their hands, Shades or Blinds can be easily opened or closed with just the press of a button.
I stay on the forefront with the latest products. I am always attending training and classes with what is new on the market.
