About Refined

Refined is the creation of Anna Applegate and Kathryn Ivey, who combine years of design training with a love for finding classic furnishings and accessories and updating them to fit today's chic interiors. 

Seeking an alternative to mass-produced home decor, Anna and Kathryn feel that one's home should be personal and distinctive, so each piece they sell is one of a kind. And by reviving vintage items with their creative eyes, the girls strive to encourage responsible, "green" design.

Hello, again.

For those of you faithful enough to check our blog regularly, you are
probably wondering what in the world has happened to us over the past
several months. Well - it's been a crazy year since we began the
journey of Refined: a warm introduction from the Washington
Post last November, Kathryn's European travels in the winter, my
(Anna's) cross-country road trip and move back to North Carolina this
summer, new (day) jobs for the both of us and my four-legged addition last
month, Edgar. So it's been a whirlwind of a year. Thank you for hanging in there!

Now that the dust has settled, we are excited to announce our new website (www.refinedstyle.net), offering fabulous new items for sale. We also hope to bring you each week, through this blog, our own design ideas and images that inspire us. Be sure to add us to your bookmarks and keep checking in; we look forward to sharing more of ourselves and Refined with you!
