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.

Celerie Kemble

I was fortunate enough to attend Celerie Kemble's book signing at the Henredon showroom at the Washinton DC Design Center a couple of weeks ago. If you have not purchased her newest book yet, go get it! It's a wonderful compilation of "best practices" for designing interiors and, Celerie shares with the reader photos and memories of the wonderful home where she spent her childhood.

During the book signing, Celerie took time to greet everyone and had individual conversations. She is a delightful person and extremely down to earth. I think we would be best friends! ~ Kathryn
