In order to provide the best possible haywoodmade experience and deliver on your vision, we have a $50,000 project minimum.
We are currently taking on new projects with a December 2023 start date or later.
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!"

Is it just me, or…

Does the color of a space really set the vibe??

We love a new build. There is something extra special about being part of a project from the very beginning and being able to inform every decision with the client in mind. And that is just what we’re doing over at Ephraim in Door County🪵

Swipe to see more of our first walk through➡️ As you can see, things are REALLY starting to take shape. We still have a long way to go and we have so many exciting plans for this home. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon😍

TSWIFT Team Outing💎 Last Friday we left the studio early to see @taylorswift Eras Tour and it gave me CHILLS. It injected all of us with a full dose of female empowerment which sometimes you just need, right?? So grateful for this team and the women who are a part of it❤️

Our team introductions wouldn’t be complete without introducing myself! If we’re just meeting, I’m Kelsey, the Owner & Principal Designer at haywoodmade and @theshop_haywoodmade🥂 Here’s a bit more about me: 

1. What's your favorite design element? I am torn between form and pattern. I always promote visual movement in our designs and adding pattern to soften or highlight the forms in it〰️

2. Old, new or a mix of the two? Mix. We so frequently use vintage rugs in our projects that it's become a signature part of our designs. A vintage rug brings such a grounding element, it's hard to beat😉

3. You can only change ONE THING in a space and you have an unlimited budget--what would you do? Wallpaper. EVERYWHERE☺️

4. What do you enjoy most about haywoodmade? I love our clients and team so much. I cherish each relationship we have and how they have allowed this business to grow. I feel so grateful to help a client's home function better and feel more like them❣️

5. Ideal weekend plans? Sleeping in, leisurely drinking a HOT latte, reading a design magazine or @heidicaillierdesign new book and shopping with friends. I would also sneak in a walk outside and kiddo snuggles🥰

I love sharing our work with you 💕 Thank you all for being here!

A question I get often as an interior designer: “What’s the ONE thing I can do to enhance my home?” And honestly, my answer depends on what “home” feels like to you❣️

Is it sinking into a plush sofa to watch your favorite show after a long day? Or is it enjoying the morning light while sipping your coffee? Is it having a dedicated space for you and a separate space for the kids? Which I COMPLETELY get btw! Whatever home feels like for you, haywoodmade is here to talk design, details, and planning to make that feeling a reality. We’re now booking projects for 2024. Get started via the link in bio and swipe to see my top 4️⃣ favorite spaces in our house!

Beaming over another client testimonial🤩 This time from our Oakley project:

“We worked with haywoodmade because we wanted to make our home more beautiful, but were overwhelmed by all the options and had no idea where to start! Kelsey did an amazing job helping us to create a lovely, comfortable space that works for a family with young children. 

As part of her process, she presents multiple options and explains her design choices and why certain ideas will "work" or "not work." She has a team of vendors she works with to paint, do electrical work, and deliver and assemble furniture; they are all consummate professionals and I didn't have to hire or vet any of them. Kelsey is extremely patient, communicative, and fun to work with.”

It is such a joy to be part of each client's home journey and this was no exception🥰

Wondering how you could freshen up your beloved home? haywoodmade is now accepting projects for 2024! Head to our website to get started📩

✨ Client testimonials make our hearts happy✨ 

“The haywoodmade team is amazing! From the beginning, Kelsey and team worked with me to understand my wants and needs and come with options that integrated my style and choices along with their recommendations. They will work within your price points and have a great perspective on where to invest more or less for long term value, what existing things to use and incorporate new ideas.

When it comes to patterns, we ♥️ the magic of the mix 🪄

These are just a few show-stoppers from past projects. I always know it’s going to be a special project when we have the opportunity to pattern play. Which of these catches your eye?

🎙Coming soon to earbuds near you…

Me, talking about being a small business with ((@heartbeyourguide))!

This was such a beautiful conversation where we talked about what it’s like to navigate the inevitable ups and downs, balancing work and home life, and what I wish I’d known in the first few years. 

Keep an eye on my stories for when it goes live!

Our Queen’s Lane project received some press in @thespruceofficial! Here’s what they had to say about the Benjamin Moore Alabaster paint color: 

“White walls will complement any color sofa quite nicely, whether you opt for a vibrant piece or embrace a monochrome look. In this living room, the warm white walls are adorned with framed art and a circular mirror. The rest of the room is accessorized with lamps, woven baskets, brass candle holders, and more.”

We loved this project and are thrilled to share it with a wide audience. Join us in celebrating! 🥂
