Our Story

haywoodmade interiors is a full-service design studio located in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago. 

Through purpose filled design, we create meaningful spaces for our clients. We believe that life informs design and form follows function. 

The haywoodmade aesthetic draws inspiration from elements found in nature. Through neutrals and saturated color, we curate multi-faceted spaces that evoke feeling. Streamlined furnishings, performance fabrics, mixed materials and thoughtful touches are our specialty. 

haywoodmade is led by Kelsey Haywood, a start-up business maven turned entrepreneur, who values beautiful relationships as much as beautiful design.

Kelsey grew up in a small town in Indiana and comes from a family of builders and makers. That background instilled a deep work ethic and trained vision at the core of her being. She now lives in a 1920s bungalow with her husband and three children.

"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.

While we initially hired her to help us finish our house, we have found ourselves continuing the relationship as we fine tune each room. In short, we definitely would recommend Kelsey and haywoodmade interiors!"

Passageways can be overlooked design opportunities. We bring the outdoors in every chance we get. So when these clients had a gorgeous collection of plants, we knew showcasing them would be the focal point leading to the treatment rooms🪴⁠⁠📷: @margaretrajic

Apartment sofas can be the perfect solution for those spaces with smaller foot prints. In our Magnolia project we incorporated one in velvet with a channeled back, bench seat cushion and height on the legs to keep things airy💫⁠⁠📷: @petra_ford_interior_photog⁠

2023 & starting fresh🌺 Quick DESIGN TIP as you remove those holiday decorations: Take stock in what you have. What brings you joy and what no longer suits you. Use this time as an opportunity to reset and address your spaces with a thoughtful eye. Sometimes it's a matter of changing a few things that make a space feel brand new!
Happy 2023 to you and yours🤍
Last flat lay of 2022🌟
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from haywoodmade. May your days be merry and bright🎄❄️❣️
It's almost time...🎄
