REFINED - Anna Applegate and Kathryn Ivey

Anna Applegate and Kathryn Ivey, longtime friends who went to school together at University of North Carolina (UNC) and now live in Alexandria's Del Ray neighborhood, have turned their love of finding and refurbishing vintage furnishings into a blossoming business. This summer, they started Refined (, a venture that they run via a blog. I took a few pictures of them with some of their finds at their homes for The Washington Post Home Section.
