Holley Simmons is the founder of Sill Life, a line of one-of-a-kind terrariums and potted plant life. Her plant designs have been featured on Apartment Therapy, Washingtonian, A Creative D.C., and DCist. A local journalist, Holley’s writings on food and D.C. culture can be found in The Washington Post, Express, The Washington City Paper, and Time Out.

Kathryn Zaremba is an illustrator and surface designer (that means she makes patterns!). Her quirky and whimsical work can be found at katezarembacompany.com. Zaremba’s designs have been published in Elle Decor, Dwell Magazine, The UK Times, Washingtonian, and featured on the websites Design Sponge, Apartment Therapy, and Refinery29. When Kathryn isn’t drawing she is more than likely thinking about drawing.

Linny Giffin is a fiber artist and interior decorator and stylist. She dreams of covering the world in pom poms and is fairly convinced she'll get to it. Watch her document the styling of her new apartment on her instagram @linnyfriend and view her professional work on linnyfriend.com


Lily Cox is a native Californian who has enjoyed a life-long connection with wildlife, and strives to bridge the gap between nature and city life. She is a floral and kokedama (aka string garden) aficionado and has learned the vast majority of her life skills from Pinterest.

Kim Pendleton leads vision board workshops and city retreats through her lifestyle site, Beauty School. She is a fan of making messes & making magic, together. 

Claire Keane works as a certified interior designer in DC, but she also enjoys doodling in her sketchbook and experimenting with paint when she can find spare moments.  Claire is from North Carolina where she studied art, interior design and historic preservation. She loves just about any outdoor activity and has yet to meet a cookie she doesn't love.   

Meghan Lazier is a designer by day and a painter, photographer and printmaker after hours. She believes that chasing curiosity, sticking up for the underdog and good old-fashioned intuition are appropriate at all times.

Lindsey May is an architect and greeting card designer. Through Mayd This Way Cards, she works to make fun, high quality cards that say just what you want them to.
