Welcome to Ironwood Studio

where you’re part of the family


If you’re ready to love your home, embrace transitional New England style, and get the tools and team to bring your dream to life — you’re in the right place. We believe in spaces where your family can relax, connect, and create a lifetime of memories… and we believe in a home that keeps up with you.

Ironwood Studio is a full-service interior design firm specializing in timeless, sophisticated interiors crafted for real family living. 

In fact, our team itself is a family affair.


I’m Virginia DesRoches, Principal Designer, and together with my life partner, John Foran (Project Manager, GC, and custom craftsman), as well as DesRoches Brothers Contracting (my 4 brothers and incredible A-Team), we've got you covered every step of the way.

We’ve designed hundreds of clients' dream homes across New England, and our family-oriented approach is what really sets us apart. From the design to project management to our commitment to you, you’ll feel like part of the family.

Ironwood Studio is founded on 5 generations of contractors. There's nothing more important to us than family — ours and yours.

Ready to create your New England style dream home? We would love to help.

Virginia DesRoches, Principal Designer

Virginia DesRoches is the Principal Designer at Ironwood Studio (formerly Virginia DesRoches Design). Growing up in a family of contractors and with 10 siblings, Virginia developed a deep passion for interior design and the way spaces impact how a family interacts and connects. She has since spent 25+ years in the industry, using interior design to bring families closer across New England.

When she’s not working on clients’ homes, you can find Virginia spending time with her two teenage sons and partner John or running coastal MA trails.


John Foran, General Contractor & Project Manager

With 20 years of experience as a Licensed General Contractor and Project Manager, John plays a key role in the successful execution of all Ironwood’s designs, remodels, and renovations. He also brings a secret talent to the team — custom craftsmanship — helping craft one-of-a-kind installations for our clients.


When John isn’t knee-deep in floor plans and woodworking projects, you can find him working out at the gym and enjoying the great outdoors.


We can’t wait to meet you.

Let’s Work Together
