Let’s Talk Shop: The First Level of Hayslip House Transitions From Showroom to Retail Space

This spring, interior designer Sherry Hayslip is rebranding her eponymous shop Hayslip House as a retail destination. The 1,200-square-foot space, which takes up the first floor of her three-level design studio in Uptown, has generally been a showroom for designers and clients. But now, the designer wants to open her doors to all shoppers. “We’d love for people to find us, have a cold drink or glass of wine, and just visit,” she says. “It’s a place to come and look and get some ideas.”


“My own design is not tied to a particular period or style. I like to have things that are unexpected, unique—that can’t be found ordinarily.”

Each room speaks to the designer’s ever-changing aesthetic, which has evolved over more than 30 years of design work. “My own design is not tied to a particular period or style,” she says. “I like to have things that are unexpected, unique—that can’t be found ordinarily.” For instance, one vignette contains a hot-pink cabinet of curiosities she has collected during her travels. Another room has a more traditional tone, filled with blue-and-white lamps and ginger jars. She stocks custom furniture, antique pieces, and art from locals like Jason Stallings and Jo Mattison. Gifts, including beautifully designed notebooks, vases, and jewelry, are sprinkled about, too.


For Hayslip, it’s her personal design lab—she’s often rearranging inventory, bringing back an item from abroad, or welcoming new artists to display their work. “It gives me an opportunity to pull together things that might give people inspiration,” she says.


Hayslip was named a 2020 Best Designer Legcay Winner earlier this year–she’s received the accolade every year since the award’s inception. To see all 2020 winners, click here.
