For this series, our spotlighted designers typically share a few of their favorite things, whether it be a piece of furniture, a candle, a favorite new brand, etc. With that said, in light of the current situation, Kate wanted to take this time to spotlight a few small businesses she is loving and supporting right now!
Not only is Sarah an incredibly talented artist, but her mantra is so uplifting - "Be a Bright Spot". Her new book is a great gift for kids - but her words, which encourage creative individuals to be true to themselves, are just as meaningful to me as they would be to any young reader!
Louise's bespoke light fixtures are truly works of art. She recently added drapery hardware to her repertoire and (to no one's surprise) it is a stunning collection! She is also one of the warmest people you will ever meet.
Suzanne is a favorite fabric and wallpaper rep of mine who just last year came out with her own line of statement cuffs. She creates striking, one-of-a-kind pieces by pairing vintage brooches with acrylic bases - the perfect mix of old and new!
Mary Hannah Andrews, a fellow NCSU grad (like Roxy!), designs and creates beautiful custom stationery, invitations and gift tags. Her watercolor, calligraphy and hand lettering skills are unreal!
I am the farthest thing from a product junkie, but one of my best friends gifted this to me a few years go and I've never smelled anything better... in. my. life. It is perfect for taming summer beach hair.
Kate, we are thrilled to have you as a part of our Designer Program. Thank you so much for incorporating our designs into your beautiful projects!
