Haute Secrets: Interior Powerhouse Kelly Anthony

Kelly Anthony Headshot

Following the winter pop-up of Yebo Ski Haus, Kelly Anthony and her Wolf Design Group team have transformed the Buckhead restaurant from slope to sand after just two days of working their magic. Nearing the one year anniversary of the restaurant owned by the power dynamic duo husband and wife Kelly and Justin Anthony, Yebo Beach Haus is back and better than ever. From the food and cocktails to the entire atmosphere, there really is no place that compares.

Kelly Wolf Anthony together with her hip husband Justin Anthony, spearhead True Story brands, which includes acclaimed Atlanta restaurants such as 10 Degrees South, Cape Dutch, Yebo and Biltong as well as a premiere wine company among other lifestyle brands.  Her resume of design work includes the design of these four restaurants. But it is Kelly’s interior design prowess under her firm Wolf Design Group that has truly put this Atlanta woman on the map for her talent both in the city-and across the world. Her interior design clients span out of Atlanta to Kiawah Island, Charlotte, Miami, New York, California stretching as far as London and Amsterdam. From renovating homes for the likes of financial icons such as Aiko Gangote to decorating North Carolina’s Richard Childress Winery and the Dale Earnhardt Museum, it is obvious that her impeccable design and talent is widely recognized and coveted far and wide. In fact, she and her team were commissioned to design and decorate the corporate Spanx headquarters in Atlanta as well as design each and every retail location.
So in the rare time Kelly is not working, here is where she likes to play, eat, and just relax in Atlanta. Check out Kelly Anthony’s Haute Secrets.
