Meet the Women Behind Home to Harbour
Joyce Pokoy-Kurtulus: The Shoreline Native

For all of her life, Joyce has been close to the shore — from her childhood spent on the beaches of Florida's Atlantic Coast to years of sailing on Long Island Sound. As her family knows all too well, it just isn't summer if Joyce isn't on the beach with her toes in the sand. 

A seasoned eyewear design and development executive who's collaborated with a host of household-name designers — including David Yurman, Judith Leiber, Isaac Mizrahi, and Cynthia Rowley — Joyce brings her discriminating eye and keen sense of aesthetics to Home to Harbour, ensuring that each product assortment hits the mark in terms of quality, comfort, and elegance. 

Joyce has been a member of the Nyack Boat Club for more than 15 years and previously served on its Interior Committee, where she oversaw projects updating the club's paint selections, furniture, and interior decor.

Stephanie Baumes: The Coastal Convert

Having grown up in upstate New York, Stephanie's love for all things coastal wasn't ignited until about 20 years ago, when she began sailing Long Island Sound with her husband. Numerous trips to Block Island, Sag Harbor, and other coastal communities throughout New England over the years have only cemented her passion for the breezy, relaxed lifestyle so central to the Home to Harbour mission.

A merchandising leader with decades of experience working with major brands like Ralph Lauren, Restoration Hardware, Tommy Hilfiger, and Cole Haan, Stephanie knows how to set a scene with curated pieces that evoke simple, elegant comfort — a skill set she's thrilled to bring to Home to Harbour.

Stephanie is currently a member of the Nyack Boat Club and previously was a member of the Hook Mountain Boat Club.
