Realtors, Rentals & Small Businesses
We are in the business of growing your business by offering design and staging services that sell! We are experts at creating spaces where any homebuyer, traveler or patron can feel at home.
Personalized Design Services
We can work with you through any phase of creating a home. Our services are typically offered at a combination of fixed and hourly rates. We also offer a day rate option as well as financing with prior approval. And, we provide perks for our preferred builder and realtor partners!
Concept to Completion
We can make your new construction, remodel and renovation plans a reality. No matter the project, we will save you time, money and sanity by guiding you through critical and costly home decisions.
If a full home overhaul is more than you want to take on at the moment, we are happy to work with you to update one room at a time.
Staging and Decor Services
Sometimes we all need a small update to refresh our home (or maybe even increase listing appeal). This could include a handful of new home accessories, a few furniture pieces and art work.
Showroom and Selections
To bring your dream to life with confidence, we know it’s important to personally see, touch and feel your selections. That’s why we built a custom showroom with exceptional selections.
Carpet & Rugs
Initial design consultations typically take place at our showroom or in the home. We’ll offer guidance on design solutions to make your life easier and to elevate your personal style. Consultations can be the start to a project or a one-time session!
3. Personalized Proposal
After your initial design consultation, you’ll receive a personalized proposal of our recommendations and estimated costs. Then the fun begins… We get to work!

“The Artful Provisions design team took the interior of our new home and business, the Ellijay River House Bed & Breakfast, and turned it into a welcoming sanctuary for our guests – who constantly rave about the interior! We can’t say enough about these wonderful design experts who after in-depth consultations, totally changed the look and feel of the home while using many of our original furniture pieces. We couldn’t be happier!”
From Karen Kreager
She and her husband, Keith, are the owners and innkeepers of Ellijay River House Bed & Breakfast
“I love everything about Artful! The team was fabulous helping me with room layouts at my home and helping me choose a few key pieces I needed to make our house more functional and beautiful! Only place I shop in town for decor!”

About Artful Provisions
From the team behind Artful Ellijay
Artful Provisions is a home design showroom located in Ellijay, Georgia. Whether you are a builder, realtor or homeowner, we are your one-stop-shop!
Together, our team has nearly a century of experience in designing extremely genuine, effortless and functional spaces. We pride ourselves on being great listeners, counselors and stewards of your personal style and money.
As a family and friends owned and operated business, we care deeply about delivering an end result that functions for your needs today and fuels your dreams of tomorrow.
Born and raised in Georgia, Samantha has always had a deep connection with Ellijay which is home to her family farm. Two years ago, Samantha and her husband, Damon, decided to make Ellijay their forever home so they could pursue their many passions while putting down roots in the community they love. Not only does artful and functional home design inspire Samantha. She is also a certified personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist and licensed real-estate agent. She knows firsthand how our wellbeing and even our listing value are impacted by the feeling of our home. That’s why she is so passionate about designing spaces that create a sense of belonging and connection and that enable people to live fulfilled, healthy and profitable lives.
Pam was born and raised in Panama City Beach, Florida. Before moving to Ellijay, she worked for more than 30 years alongside contractors and developers for condos, resorts, restaurants and luxury homes in the Florida panhandle. Pam’s family has always vacationed in the North Georgia and North Carolina mountains, and in 2017, they decided to make Ellijay their permanent home for “retirement.” She explains that “the beaches will always be home but the mountains were calling. We had to answer that call.” Pam and her husband Jerry have one son and daughter-in-law, Jeremy and Jessika. They love hiking, biking, camping and exploring the beautiful waterfalls in the area.
Ashley began her design career in events. She spent 15 years building one of the top wedding planning firms in the Southeast, as recognized by the likes of Martha Stewart Weddings and Southern Living Magazine. During her time as a wedding planner, Ashley refined her skills in spatial planning and working hand-in-hand with clients to develop design plans that meet both their aesthetic and budget preferences. This extensive experience has been the perfect transition into project coordination and home design with the Artful Provisions team. Ashley lives in Ellijay with her husband, two young children and three dogs. She loves to travel and spend time with family.
Charlene’s career has given her joy for decades. Her friendly approach and humor keep our team and clients smiling. After design school, she built her career and life in and around Atlanta, but memorable jobs were traveling to design and build projects in Watercolor and Ocala, Florida as well as Charleston, SC. The North Georgia mountains were always calling! When presented with the opportunity to join the Artful family, it was a no-brainer! She is thrilled to be surrounded by such a talented team and live in a Hallmark movie town!
In addition to Laura’s incredible body of work, she is well-known for her contagious and upbeat spirit. Born and raised in Tennessee, Laura’s education and career took her all over our neighbor state before she moved to Georgia. After design school, Laura worked as a designer across a myriad of industries. She’s a problem-solver, creative thinker, and team player! Laura has three children Phillip, Addison and Bailey, along with their spouses Lynette, Ashley and Jode. Laura is known by her grandson, Theo, as “OG,” and her greatest loves are the Lord, her family, music, art, and nature (especially visiting the beach).
