Community Spotlight: Janelle Blakely Photopoulos of Blakely Interior Design

Our Community Spotlight here at The Mill at Lafayette shines on Blakely Interior Design. Since its inception in 2010, Blakely has been dedicated to collaborating between their team of designers and customer base with their goal to create a dream space for all of their clients.

Janelle Blakely Photopoulos, owner and principal designer of Blakely Interior Design, started out right here at The Hive, the Mill’s shared co-working space. When asked why she chose the Mill as the place to house her expanding business, Janelle says, “It is so exciting for us to come back to our roots where it all began. I love how we have come full circle moving back to the Mill this February to our own brand new design studio. It truly inspires us everyday to see how the business has grown and evolved!”

Blakely moved into a ground level suite in the Rodman Building and quickly transformed the area into a space that showcased their design skills. “To see the transformation of our own 2,000 sq. ft. space, reflecting our brand feels surreal. You have to be in an environment that inspires you to do great work, and we love how our new space turned out!”

Janelle cites the overwhelming support of the people and other businesses here at the Mill as being her favorite part of being in the Mill community. “From dropping off misdirected mail to helping us unload our custom doors, the people have been wonderful. Even when we made a big stink (literally – from our amazing epoxy painted floors) – everyone was so patient and understanding. A few dozen donuts helped!”

Janelle and Blakely Interior Design are dedicated to the business scene, also. “We love to work with local artisans to help showcase their craftsmanship whenever possible on custom pieces for our clients. Not only does it help our local community’s economy, but it provides our clients with something truly unique and special they normally would not find in a big box store.”

Blakely Interior Design truly is a great fit for our wonderful community here at the Mill At Lafayette. Stop by their design studio, visit their website, or contact them today!
