About Us

I’m Sue Dixon, founder of DesignJoy Custom Drapery, Blinds & More and DesignJoy Interiors.

I believe that design should be not only beautiful, but also functional and comfortable. Well-designed spaces help us

feel at ease; they bring out our best selves in work and play. We feel good in them. And since light affects our mood and productivity, where better to start than with our windows!

I have been passionate about creating beautiful surroundings all my life. Fascinated with how colour, line and texture intersect to create beauty in surprising ways, I devoured every design resource I could. The obsession continued as I created my own home décor, learning how to combine beauty with functionality, convenience and comfort.

After my friends and family repeatedly asked me to help them with their homes, I did a mid-life pivot from the business world into this field that has always fascinated me. And after completing studies with the Interior Design Institute of Canada, I founded DesignJoy Interiors.

Shortly after that I completed an intensive course on window coverings to earn the designation of Certified Window Treatment Specialist™. And on partnering with excellent installers/motorization experts and the experienced seamstresses in our workroom, I created DesignJoy Custom Drapery, Blinds & More.

We would love to help you with your window treatment needs, so contact us and let’s make something beautiful together!

Why Choose Us?

We know you have a lot of options when you choose a firm for your window treatment needs.

What sets us apart is our willingness to listen carefully to your needs and suggest approaches you may not have considered. And along the way, we often come up with additional benefits or stylish touches that make the room “sing”.

Using our expertise we are your partners in making your space somewhere you and your family, or coworkers and clients, love to be.


Who are our clients?

Our Residential Clients:

We have expert knowledge in window treatments and design, keeping up with trends but also embracing classics. So, not surprisingly, our clients range from young professionals to those who are ninety years young.

Whether you’ve just bought your first home (how exciting!) or you are renovating your existing one, our clients realize that well-chosen quality window coverings are always a wise investment.

Our Commercial Clients:

We understand that businesses often have different needs than homeowners. For instance, a firm may require window treatments that:

  • are more durable
  • are more easily cleaned
  • have specific safety ratings (such as flame retardance)
  • have other technical gradings, such as environmental impact ratings, to be compliant with local regulations.

We can design products that meet your technical requirements and enhance your brand identity in a range of price points. So you can choose what best suits your business needs. Contact us today – we can make it easy.
