Shayelyn Woodbery takes an intuitive, holistic approach to life—and design. The Atlanta native established Shayelyn Woodbery Interiors in 2008 and is known for a layered, elegant look. Her inspiration, reinvigorated by a recent trip to Bali, looks to positive energy and balance. “I come at design from a spiritual and aesthetic angle,” she says. “I feel like both components must be present. For me, it’s not just about making things look good.” Traditional handicrafts, organic materials, and sublime vibes of Indonesia helped her hit the reset button for spring, paired with a bohemian smattering of fabrics, furnishings, and fashion.
