I was recently introduced to a company called Refined Haystack and immediately wanted to share it with you. Refined Haystack was initially launched in Chicago, and excitedly they’re expanding their online network into Atlanta.
As a designer and stylist in an ever-evolving and saturated marketplace, having a few choice sources as my go-to for help cuts down on precious time spent, tremendously. Refined Haystack sets itself apart by being truly designer-driven and curated; sources must be recommended by a designer to be part of the site and then are ranked by the number of authentic designer reviews they acquire. Additionally, the site is design industry-friendly, educating homeowners on the value of a designer’s knowledge and featuring all types of design resources, including to-the-trade-only sources. So this is really a win, win for all. What I really love is how the platform facilitates collaboration among designers which is really one thing I love about the Atlanta design community, is the friendliness and want to help and work with one another.
Acting as a market network and guide curated and driven by engagement from the design community, Refined Haystack makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for when it comes to local interior design and décor.
And some of Atlanta’s most recognizable industry veterans have just joined up with Refined Haystack, including T. Duffy & Associates, Cloth & Kind, Rinehart Design Group and numerous showrooms within the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center have already enlisted their participation in the Atlanta launch.
Welcome to Atlanta, Refined Haystack.
a while back, my home was featured on style me pretty living, but there have been a few updates. mila grew (alot!) and she is now in a big girl bed, the office needed some more space, so that swapped with what was the guest room. you can have a look at how the rooms used to look here.
bed, rug, bedding – west elm
night stands – vintage

i am excited to share my most recent project with you. i was brought on to creative direct + produce a complete product rebrand for a bedding company. what was unbelievably fun was creating an array of styles from modern to conservative, to eclectic to loft, to adjustable beds. i selected a few of my favorites to share with you.
i am so excited to share images from interior design work i completed earlier this year, but had to hold on out my sharing until Lonny did its’ feature last week. in case you missed it, here it is.
this space was completely empty when I began with the exception of a giant pool table in the center of the room. the goal was to bring soul + character into this newly-built home along with a handful of functions. the client loves all things rustic, collected, + with a story so it was so fun pulling this space together with alot of visits to local salvage yards, vintage stores + blend with some cleaner, more modern lines.
Hope you love the result!
