Today we’d like to introduce you to Keyatta Miller.
Hi Keyatta, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My name is Keyatta Miller and I am the founder of Dwelling22. Dwelling22 is a home, lifestyle and design studio created to help people feel good in the spaces they call home whether they are a renter or homeowner. I show clients that elevating their spaces can be simplified and streamlined. My company offers curated products and online design services.
Originally from Charlotte, NC I entered the world of interior decorating years ago after doing it for some time as a hobby. Initially, I studied advertising design in college because I loved home décor and fashion magazines, art, design, photography, and composition. I always wanted to be the one who created the looks for the magazines. After college I found myself working in banking and then supply chain as a buyer. My home was always my haven. I would always redecorate, change things out, and so on… It was honestly a stress reliever for me because I was a single mom working in the demanding field of supply chain and I just always loved to come home, relax and feel good.
I remember the very moment I decided to really take the first step is when my boss at the time overheard me talking about redecorating my home. He came up to me and asked what I had planned, after showing him he asked if I could makeover the waiting area. The next thing you know he handed me the company card and that was my first experience working on a project other than my own.
A few years after I found myself working with residential clients, fell in love with doing non profit work with amazing organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, and even doing a bit of production design for a short film.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I would have to say the journey has been interesting to say the least. I have learned so many things through experience like so many other creatives and entrepreneurs and that can be tough. Really trying to understand which services I wanted to offer my clients, what type of projects I wanted to focus on, how to operate this business so that it flows with my lifestyle were some things I really had to figure out.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Yes so the goal is to be a destination for home décor products and services. The name Dwelling22 was inspired by the word Dwell which means to live and exist and the number 22 which represents harmony & balance. This is what my company stands on and I hope to elevate the living experiences for my clients and customers as they create the spaces they love. Fun fact the first product I created was my harmony room mist and my customers loved it… I guess that was a good sign lol. Hoping to bring it back soon.
What matters most to you? Why?
What matters to me most is remembering my why because that is what drives me daily. The goal is to create something bigger than me that serves others and share what I’ve learned. I just love the thought of that.
