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.

Kool Kids

Lately, there have been several friends that have just had babies or will be having babies this spring. So naturally, as I've been RSVP-ing to baby showers galore, I've been thinking about the great design that has been popping up for babies and kids. Every magazine I reach for these days has an article on great nurseries or kids playrooms. Below are just a few of my favorite items that I will definitely be using when it's my turn to be preggers!

from Walnut Wallpaper

I am obsessed with this whale wallpaper! I might just not be able to wait to have kids in order to use this - I would put this in a bathroom for grownups!

from Home Decorators

How can you not fall in love with this whimsical hamper! It comes as a fish too!

from Fawn and Forest

I love nurseries and playrooms that have murals painted on the walls. But if you don't want to commit to what can be a time intensive and costly project, these great wall decals are easily removable and affordable!

from Cottage Living

A good friend of mine is using this room as inspiration for her nursery. The use of typography on this wall is fabulous!
