Hi! I’m Taryn Fiol Williford, a lifestyle writer and creative director living in Atlanta. Restaurants are my happy place. I prefer drinks with bubbles. I appreciate the labor of finding a perfect reaction gif. I believe a season finale is a perfectly good reason to take off work and throw a party.

I spend my days working as a Senior Writer for Apartment Therapy, where I help people make the most of their homes and their lives. On the side, I work as a creative designer crafting together identity, visuals, voice and strategy to tell a brand’s story. And when the mood strikes, I’m here updating this site with recipes to impress your friends, my favorite finds from style and pop culture and personal stories about developing a career that feels like an extension of who you are.

I want to inspire inventive entertaining, thoughtful gifting, mindful work and insatiable curiosity. My mission is to share stories and ideas that help creative people make their mark. Grab a beer and lets get to know each other.
