Setting The Table with Joy Cho of Oh Joy!

Meet Joy Cho, the Founder and Creative Director of Oh Joy! Launched in 2005 as a graphic design studio, Joy has grown her business to include 40+ licensing partnerships, brand consulting, social media partnerships and has authored seven books… she does it all! We couldn't think of a more perfect person to showcase the bright and cheery tones of Palm & Canyon than Joy with her fun and colorful take on an *almost spring brunch tablescape.

Finish the sentence: A dinner party isn’t complete without…

Something sweet!

More is always more for you, any design trends you are loving these days?

I’m always about mix and match when it comes to setting the table. It makes things more fun and is more realistic, that way you don’t have to have large quantities of all the same items!

I love that they have such great colors and quality yet they can still work for everyday use

What are you personally most excited about as we get closer to Spring?

Outdoor dinners!

Eclectic dinner table or monochromatic?


If you could host any design icon, who would you love to have at your table?

What color or colors are you most excited to see everywhere this year?

I’m currently obsessed with cobalt blue and love seeing it sprinkled into interiors, fashion, everywhere!

Yes we have some really fun, wearable collections coming this Spring, Summer, and Fall!

Keep an eye out for all the colorful launches Joy has coming up on her  Instagram and Blog
