Our Story

“You can probably tell from photographs that she has a keen eye for design and listens to her client’s vision. In addition, she is respectful of budget and timelines, always explaining our options so that we know what to expect. She is extremely organized. Best of all, she’s a very nice, congenial person –
the kind who leaves a place better than how she found it.
– Carrie C.
Ephraim progress shots ➡️ Primary pocket doors, clear cedar ceiling in the bunk room, patio double sided fireplace, dining room & entry.So much excitement seeing the design elements taking shape!⁠
A craft room that would inspire anyone to create🎨 We love the fun touches and playful lighting we selected for this one-of-a-kind creative space❤️⁠
Paint makes all the difference🎨 Before & afters are just a swipe away👉️ At Chestnut, we ditched the grey and went with @farrowandball Skimming Stone on the first floor common areas, stairways, hallways and primary bedroom. So much more to come for these beautiful spaces🥰
Sending out 🌷 energy and very much anticipating the arrival of spring. Until then, here are some spaces that hopefully will it into existence!
It’s been a week. And little moments like this from @xx_samanthaleigh make me SO grateful for my team. This sunroom is going to be 💯 when the rest of the furniture arrives, but how good is this fabric, chair detail + vintage rug??🤩
Thayer's beautiful living room comes to mind whenever the weather takes a topsy-turvy turn😍 Anyone else experiencing weather whiplash??🙋‍♀️
What a week! A few of my favs from our site visit in Ephraim, WI🖤⁠⁠
The 🎢 ride our weather has been on reminds me that in the sunroom at Asbury, there is no such thing as an ideal season. Each one is amazing when you're comfy inside all while feeling connected to the outdoors🪴 Even if it's 3 seasons in a single day😵‍💫⁠⁠
New month, new project❤️ Yesterday we kicked off a Winnetka project that we are SO excited about. We will say farewell gray and bring in all the beautiful touches for this sweet family. Can’t wait to share the progress with you!#chicagointeriordesign #interiordesign

We are SO close to finishing up the selections on the Ephraim bathrooms and it made me think back to our primary bathroom gut in 2018. Note: classic materials can be interesting AND stand the test of time😁
Door County project progress💫 Right before Christmas we had a site visit for the final electrical and plumbing walk through which means walls are coming SOON. Scroll for the double queen guest room, sketch of what's to come and the primary sitting room floor to ceiling windows😍
Cheers to a cozy corner for ✌️ No matter the Chicago weather, this corner in the Thayer living room is the perfect spot to snuggle up with a cocktail and or a good book. What have you been doing to relax so far in 2024?? Let us know below!⁠
Before + After at Thayer🤍 Our repeat clients from Briar purchased this beautiful Georgian in November 2022 and I was thrilled to work with them again. The house was nearly perfect, but it needed their aesthetic layered in. We added the layers with a vintage rug from @theshop_haywoodmade, stair runner, and an explosion of baby's breath. Now the space matches the welcoming feeling of this home!

NEW YEAR, NEW LOOK🤍 Over the past few months, we have been working hard behind the scenes to revamp our branding and we are thrilled to reintroduce the haywoodmade brand.⁠⁠My goal was to create a fresh logo and emblem that captured the timeless essence we strive for in our projects. A color palette of dusty jewel tones, light typography, and purposeful touches was just the ticket.⁠⁠To align with our rebranding, our website got a fresh look too. Take a moment to swipe through and let us know what you think below🥰

Sharing some more client love today from one of our favorite big boy rooms😍 Truly, we are fortunate to work with the most wonderful clients. We are all about developing a long standing relationship with our clients to get to know them, their needs and how we can improve every day life no matter what space we are tackling. Here’s a testimonial from a happy client (and friend!) of haywoodmade:"haywoodmade delivered on all of the design criteria we discussed, making the final space both beautiful and functional for our lifestyle.  I really appreciated the clear communication and frequent updates as the project progressed, as well as the efficiency.  I was impressed that the team really listened to our vision and even incorporated several of the existing pieces and artwork we already loved.  I am so happy with my choice to work with haywoodmade and highly recommend working with the team!"Have a project in mind that you’re ready to make a reality in 2024?
