For this kitchen renovation in Decatur, Georgia, the client couldn’t be happier with the creative work of Julie Holloway and Anisa Darnell of Milk and Honey Home.

And the angle shade did just that! It was a risk... Read More
My husband’s woodworking hobby is taking over the garage. In addition to the router table, multiple saws, drill press, and various tools trying to find a home amongst the kids’ bikes and Christmas decorations, everything in the space receives a shower of sawdust every weekend! We are working with a builder to create a dedicated workshop space for him which is why this beautiful barn caught my eye!
