Based in Athens GA, The Misfit House is a full-service interior design firm founded in 2016 by Monica Stewart. The ethos of The Misfit House is that our homes, whether big or small, elaborate or simple, rustic or modern, should be a peaceful place where we make our most special memories.

Monica Stewart is also the founder of a lighting company, Evolve Lighting Co, which was created with the same ideals of authentic materials and lots of vintage.

"Our family moved many times throughout my childhood and always into houses that were mostly furnished and without option of renovation. Despite faded wallpaper, electric green shag carpet, and orange plaid scratchy sofas, my mother arranged and rearranged until it felt like home.

Growing up in misfit houses inspired me to pursue helping others enjoy their homes. We approach every project by beginning with a source of sentiment and inspiration because meaningful authentic homes are timeless. We build our designs around what matters most." - Monica Stewart

"Monica at The Misfit House far exceeded our expectations! Not only was it a dream to get to meet someone you admire so much for their gorgeous design aesthetic but she took the time to thoroughly review our background document before the call and showed up with THE BEST recommendations and insights. My husband and I were both floored by her immediate understanding of our space and the way she balanced the pace of the call with her amazing recommendations. Thank you, Monica and The Expert!"

"I loved my consultation with Monica from The Misfit House! I was very impressed with how she took the time prior to the call to understand my goals and come up with very specific ideas for my space. I had been feeling really uninspired by my home, and whether or not I’m able to implement everything right away, I feel that I have a new excitement for the possibilities. I already have some fun pieces that we discussed on the way!"

"Sometimes you sit on the fence because you cannot decide if the endeavor is worthy...IT IS! Working with Monica on the pre-construction plans for my new home was critical. Before finalizing the plans for submission, I wanted a pair of expert eyes to find any flaws. Monica was exceptional We discussed the entire home finding areas to reconfigure and capture space. We also discussed fabrics for reupholstery and furniture schematics for various rooms. I will book more time again. Thanks Monica!"

"I am beyond thrilled! Monica surpassed by expectations and the consultation accomplished all of my goals and then some. She listened carefully to my design dilemmas. She provided thoughtful, specific suggestions - constantly checking in with me to ensure that we were on the same page. When we ended, I had a complete plan and vision to update my kitchen and eating area. She covered not just the large scale items, but the smaller, still essential touches. I cannot wait to get started!"

We covered so much ground in an hour - and then she graciously went beyond the hour to round out her suggestions. She is a kind and thoughtful person who clearly takes great pride in her craft. I came away really excited to tackle this project...thank you Monica!!"

"I loved my experience with Monica. She really took the time to understand not only my frustrations with trying to decorate my house but also, my personality and how my family would live in my new home. I truly think The Expert is a great way to get advice and inspiration from "experts" who we would never otherwise get to have input from. Thank you from Monica Stewart "The Misfit" and The Expert for such a great resource!"

"I was really torn about whether to do a consultation on The Expert because we are on a tight budget right now, but once I saw the Misfit House had been added to the roster, I knew I had to do it! Monica gave me key guidance on how to think about our space and how to use the pieces that we already have in a way that feels intentional and cohesive. She was very generous with her time and resources, and I appreciated that she had carefully reviewed my slides in advance. THANK YOU!"

"Our home is about to get much more interesting thanks to Monica! She helped us look at our home in fresh new ways (which we desperately needed) and she also validated some choices we were hesitant to commit to. She has interesting, thoughtful, and impeccable taste--we absolutely cannot wait to bring her ideas to life. "

"Wow, that's all I can say. I was really looking forward to our consult with Monica/The Misfit House and she far exceeded my expectations(which I must admit, were high)! We'd been trying to re-do our bathroom for quite awhile and were stuck on design decisions. Somehow, Monica "intuitively" knew what we wanted, needed and added so much more! We came away with many design ideas, resources, ways to put an individual stamp on our project and a Pinterest board to boot. Absolutely incredible! "
