Podcast Link: Thoughtful Spaces And Joyful Places – Custom Joy
Founder and designer Tiffany Dill [email@example.com] is dedicated to bringing joy and happiness into the environments shared by all people. Her passion and clinical expertise give her first-hand knowledge on functional designs. Tiffany is the founder of the Inclusive Design Alliance in St. Louis and is a member of The Universal Design Project team. The Universal Design project is a nonprofit comprised of healthcare professionals and a volunteer group of people who have experience with disabilities (personally and professionally) and see a big need for more universally and financially accessible homes and social opportunities. They leverage the functional aspects of design and collaborate with design professionals to benefit communities across America. Tiffany understands the need for purposeful designs to live safely and independently. Whether home, work or play — she uses her unique blueprint to create thoughtful and meaningful spaces.
When we first spoke with Tiffany Dill several months ago it was about her Universal Design Consulting firm, Blue Day 2. As of July 1, 2023, she has combined her talents and passion for accessible design with Gretchen Kingma, who, like Tiffany, has experience as an Occupational Therapist. Gretchen is also a top producing realtor in the St. Louis area who founded Empowered Homes to fill the gap in real estate services for people with disabilities and adults who wish to age in place. Together Tiffany and Gretchen have launched Custom Joy with a mission to “Build Thoughtful Spaces And Joyful Places For All.” Tiffany has an exciting story to share about the creation of Blue Day 2 and taking it to the next level with Custom Joy. For those of you who thought accessibility necessitated the sacrifice of tasteful design, comfort and beauty, fasten your seatbelts…because you are about to discover a whole new world of possibility, where “Thoughtful Spaces And Joyful Places” also offer beauty and access to everyone!
