Modern and Contemporary Interior Designer in Sarasota, Florida

On Your Time

For various reasons, a client's schedule can be very important. Because of the efficiency of my services and commitment to your project, I will achieve the required time frame goal. I have already met some demanding time requirements, including an entire model home that I completed in an amazing three weeks!

Your Style Coming To Life

Listening skills seem rare these days. My clients appreciate that I listen carefully and produce an interior design that reflects this fact. I'm used to exceeding their expectations, adding unique details that delight. My job is to bring to the client that, for which they asked, and that, for which they never would have thought to ask.

Commercial Space Transformed

Each commercial business has it's own special requirements and operational model. Curious by nature, it's exciting for me to research the business, using in depth interview techniques. I use my knowledge of color psychology, building codes, and inventiveness to create a space that will produce the optimum financial returns for each business. I can give a company a new corporate image, or just design to increase business. My projects range from country clubs, to medical facilities, and other fascinating spaces.

From Plain To Polished

Having direct dealer status with a myriad of manufacturers, I offer stunning and unusual pieces of furniture, fabrics, art, wallcoverings, lighting, flooring, etc. Additionally, for years, I have designed many pieces of custom furniture for my clients. This results in a tasteful, and customized interior for each client.


Joan Greenfield graduated from Temple University (Philadelphia) with a BSN in Nursing, but a major change occurred when she went to her first Designer Showcase House in her hometown of Philadelphia and found her new passion. Becoming an Interior Designer became her grand obsession from that point on as she graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design with a BFA in Interior Design and Space Planning in 1987 and has never looked back.

Her interior design projects range from large installations, such as the Sarasota Community Blood Bank and the Palm Aire Country Club, to many high-end residential homes, looking for a wow factor. Modern interior design style is the main focus, but this firm has done so many other styles. Her attention to detail, active listening skills, and multi-faceted styles & colors, have been a delight to all who have engaged her services.

In addition to her interior design skills, Joan is adept at furniture design, modern inspirations, custom art design, floral arranging, and fine art selection. Clients can be assured they will receive the highest quality, tasteful interior design when they engage her services. Moderne Interior Design is the sign of excellence in interior design in Sarasota.

"I would like to recommend Joan Greenfield of Moderne Interior Design. We chose Joan because of her expertise in modern interior design, her degree and license, her 29 years of experience, her varied body of work and her enthusiasm. My husband and I found her to be creatively talented, service-oriented, with a friendly, outgoing attitude that she easily maintained, while remaining solution focused. She has great communication, listening and organizational skills, and always kept us informed. She displayed a high degree of integrity, efficiency, and responsibility, giving generously of her time. She was always willing to do more than what was required. She is dedicated to her profession and brought interesting ideas to our home. She made our design process easy, as we weren't able to be in town much. My husband and I loved working with Joan and we want to give our wholehearted endorsement!"

"Joan Greenfield has worked tirelessly to decorate our home in Florida. My husband and I were thrilled with every purchase and design concept. We were so fortunate to find Joan and to be able to work with her, long-distance, and have such fabulous results. Whether one room or an entire house, Joan can do it all with creativity, humor and affection. Thank you Joan!"
Allan and Linda Birdy
"Joan designed the modern interior and managed the furnishing of the main living areas in our new construction Florida home. The major portion of her work had to be done when we were still living 1200 miles away so her strong communications and organizational skills were crucial to the project's success. Her creative approach to modern design and Florida style were invaluable given our lack of previous exposure to either. Joan works hard to keep a project moving forward as efficiently as possible. She gives generously of her time, is attentive to even the smallest details, and demonstrates strong professionalism and accountability for her outcomes. It was a pleasure to work with Joan. We are very grateful to her for creating a space we will thoroughly enjoy for years to come."
