Moxii specializes in transforming student apartments and non-student homes with professionally selected items in a variety of textures, patterns, and colors. Fix broken items fashionably with the pretty girl tool set ($38), brighten up dull design with a ceramic wall sconce with tea light ($48), or snooze on straight style with a couple of apple blossom pillows ($25). Savvy Egyptian cotton bath towels ($14.95 each) let you dry off in a hue of your choice while the Regina laundry bag ($68) makes dirty laundry feel like runway models that haven't taken a shower in days. You can also purchase two Groupons and combine them toward larger purchases such as the customer favorite Damask quilt ($159), a beautifully crafted quilt that tastefully updates the ancient design with patterned color contrasts.
Inside a 1,000-square-foot beachfront studio, D'ames Day Spa's skilled aestheticians soothe clients with hot towels and warm, scented lotions during every beautifying service. Many of the treatments, such as facials and body wraps, use scent-packed, natural ingredients—including herbs, fruits, chocolate, and a distillation of childhood memories—to soften and nourish skin while enveloping the room in calming aromas. Luxe massages, ranging from soothing hot stone to pain-ousting deep tissue, ease taut muscles and diffuse oxygen throughout the body.
When redesigning a home, Jamie Ann Maldonado of JAM Design Interiors certainly pays attention to how her clients feel. But she also has someone else in mind: the people who might someday repurchase that home. With a keen eye trained on trends in the Atlanta-area real-estate market, she makes sure that her design decisions will only add to the property's eventual resale value. Since Maldonado earned her BFA in Interior Design from Savannah College of Art and Design a decade ago, she's kept busy with both residential work and redesigns of boutiques and office spaces.
