Katy Costner, Costner Studio, is one of our favorite designers for busy families! We sat down with Katy to get her take on interior design trends that will not only make your home beautiful and timeless, but keep your home up to date on what’s in.
Sustainable & Organic Materials
We are doing away with plastic as much as possible and leaning towards more glass and large pendants. This can mean anything from hardware, light fixtures, or even furniture framework! The future is going towards greener designs in the sense of being eco-friendly. So when designing your home, look for sustainable and organic materials (reclaimed wood, bio-glass, recycled metal, and jute). Choose paints with “non-toxic”, “low-biocide”, or “milk” tags.
Bringing the outdoors inside with greenery (lots of plants), natural wood, and warm neutrals. I think with everyone having to stay home from last year’s quarantine we are looking for ways to make our home feel like a sanctuary. Create a home garden or a look that will incorporate neutrals and reclaimed wood pieces. Continue reading “Interior Design Trends | Costner Studio”»
We sat down with Melanie Millner, owner of The Design Atelier, to learn more about her company and creative process.
What inspired you to open The Design Atelier?
I moved to Atlanta after graduating from The University of Texas with a design degree and was thirsty to learn everything there was to know about architecture and design. Instead of spending free time meeting new friends, I worked two jobs for two different architecture firms and spent weekends drawing plans for residential renovations, putting in 90 hour work weeks. I gained enough clients freelancing on the weekends to start my own business, so I drafted up a business plan and started The Design Atelier at the ripe old age of 25.

New York designer Thomas Puckett grew up in Columbus, GA and has deep roots in the South. Thomas has received acclaim for his residential, landscape and commercial design as well as multiple Houzz awards and consistent 5-star ratings from his diverse clients.
What inspired you to open Thomas Puckett Designs? Years ago, good friends purchased the Hamptons home of a Real Housewives of New York – Kelly Bensimon. Despite the fancy address, it needed a complete rehaul. When they asked for my help, I thought they wanted me to choose a paint color or a sofa. After some confusing conversations they said, “Thomas, you don’t get it, we want you to design the entire house.” A lightbulb went off in my head and I realized that I could have a legit interior and landscape design business. I’d always helped my mother who has a design business of her own, designed my own interiors and gardens and had been helping friends with theirs. So even though it was so obvious, I never thought of it until then. That’s what friends are for, and I’ll forever be grateful to them. My partner Chip Whitman is the COO who deals with the endless challenges of invoicing, billing, shipping, receiving and all the operational hurdles that clients never see. Without him, this business would never run successfully. Clients appreciate Chip’s skills as much as my designs.Continue reading “Meet Thomas Puckett | Thomas Puckett Designs”»
