I'm Dayle "the Maker", a Creative Designer living in Atlanta. I have been creating wonderful things all my life. I'm passionate about modern design, textiles, paper, color and technology. I also teach design classes and creative workshops. Crafting has been my obsession for over 20 years and I love it.

During the day, I get to flex my designer muscles as the Creative Director for the Center for Civic Innovation. A non profit with great people who care about Atlanta and how we can make it a better place to live. So I guess you can call me a Creative Do-Gooder!

Here at Number 4 Design Studio, you'll find weekly inspiration for design, crafts, home decor and design trends. I started blogging in 2007 as another creative outlet to express myself. Since 2013, blogging has grown into a design studio that specializing in styling, consulting, workshops, collaborations and art installations.

I'm surrounded by inspiration daily. I see beautiful things all the time while commuting to work, taking a walk and traveling. I enjoy combining my love for design with color, texture and technology. The goal of the Number 4 Design Studio is to MAKE pretty things, INSPIRE you with awesome pics and SHARE what I find. Welcome to my world!
