She’s the creative spirit; he’s the businessman. She’s the visionary; he’s the planner. Together, Kelley Hall-Barr and husband John Barr have succeeded in building a beautifully balanced business union called k. hall designs, which specializes in aromatic bath, body and home care products, including reed diffusers, candles, sheet sprays, perfumes, bath gels and salts, shea butter lotions and triple milled soaps made from high quality essential oils and other natural ingredients.
k. hall designs is located in a charming 1940s- Deco-style warehouse in Brentwood, MO. The building serves as both company headquarters as well as houses an expanded (and busy) 2000 sq. ft. retail store. Inside the delightful space, Kelley’s unique style is everywhere in evidence, from the ambrosial scents that waft through the air to the earthy, classically hip décor, including linen bedding, table linens, pottery and a blend of unusual gifts.
But it is John’s capable and personable style of management that has allowed Kelley’s creative talents to truly blossom and come to fruition. In fact, under John’s leadership, the line has reached national prominence, receiving kudos from both regional and national publications for the quality of the products and scents as well as the elegant, timeless simplicity of the packaging. At the same time, the Barrs have also developed an impressive client list that ranges from trend-setting boutiques to major retail players.
