Kelle Howard-Dean is an Australian Interior Designer whose business Habitat + Beyond Kids specialises in nurseries and children’s rooms. Kelle has an unbridled passion for beautiful interiors, a belief that it's all about the details, a love for crisp white sheets, anything with a chevron print (and a not-so-secret love of all things leopard) and nothing makes her smile more than the sound of her son's laughter. Her work has been featured in several magazines and her passion is creating one-of-a-kind rooms for children to learn, play, dream and grow.


Jessica’s interest in house hunting and design started at age five when her parents began their search for what would become her childhood home. She loved going from house to house, picturing which bedroom would be hers and where all the great hide-and-go-seek spots would be. That passion for looking at new spaces and envisioning how to make them a home continues with her today; such as by helping her family and friends find and create inviting spaces in which to live, or renovating the antique fixer-upper she recently moved into with her husband. She enjoys writing about all of the clever things she finds along the way in her blog, Color the Burbs.

Jeanne Chung of Cozy•Stylish•Chic is a former fashion designer, who obtained a BFA in fashion design from Parsons School of Design in New York. After spending many years in the business and having recently become a stay at home mom, her restlessness got the best of her and she returned to school at the New York School of Interior Design to follow her true passion - interior design. She started writing her blog, Cozy•Stylish•Chic, as a way to remain connected to the world of fashion while starting a new career designing interiors, and is having the time of her life. Her motto is to grab life by the horns - and does she, by doing what she loves and raising her two boys, ages 8 and 13. Jeanne is at home with her husband and boys in Pasadena, California, where she claims there is never a dull moment.

Hello! I'm McKenna Lou Ryan, one half of the sister blogging duo, Lynn + Lou. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah with my handsome Mr. Ryan. I am a student, studying Graphic Design.

Born and raised in Minnesota. Love Jesus. Love music. Love fashion. Love yoga. Love travel. And a few other things I really really like would be theology, politics, coffee and really fresh foods…okay I love these things, too. In all of these things I love to find the beauty and draw inspiration. I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow-up, and not really sure when one is supposed to have that figured out but I am enjoying the adventure (always love a good adventure) of figuring this whole life thing out. Please visit my blog. B. in the know.
