#GetDecorated with Havenly and Pure Barre Dupont

By Claire Goldman

Looking for a style whisperer to take your dwelling to the next level on a budget?  Look no further than web-based Havenly.  Created by two business savvy sisters, this online interior design company turns dream rooms from a virtual reality into real life.

The mission behind Havenly is to make high style accessible to the busy average Joe or Jane on a budget.  For a flat fee per room, you'll chat with your design expert and within five days of the consultation you'll be presented with a concept for your room.  You will  provide feedback to your designer, fill your cart and Havenly will take care of order and delivery of your decor purchases.

In order to announce their arrival in DC, Havenly hosted a Pure Barre class in the Dupont studio.  Having tried barre classes at some other studios I was excited to compare and contrast.  The result?  Pure Barre is my favorite local barre workout studio thus far.  The teacher, Annie, is very clear with her instructions.  She also offered excellent critiques and empowering encouragement to myself and my classmates.  I was definitely feeling the burn the next day and will certainly be back for more!

We followed up our class with Olivia Macrons and rose wine.  Come on, we earned it!
