Husband and wife team Jeanine Hays (former policy attorney) and Bryan Mason (PhD. Candidate) founded Aphro Chic in 2007. They wanted to escape to the stresses of work and to share their passion for culture and design. This black-owned interior design firm is Brooklyn-based. It focuses on high-end commercial and residential design. “Modern.Soulful.Style.” is the phrase coined to express their personal vision. It embraces the mixture of the traditional and contemporary. Several newspapers including The New York Times and Washington Post have featured them. They’ve also been in Elle Decor, House Beautiful, and Better Homes and Gardens. Good Morning America and NewsOne Now with Roland Martin have also run stories. In 2017, they produced HGTV’s Sneak Peek with AphroChic. The Hays created this house tour series for HGTV’s Facebook Live channel. Jeanine and Bryan are leading experts in home decor. They produce content for The Spruce, HGTV, Refinery29, Apartment Therapy, and MOYI Magazine. They also promote global brands, such as IKEA Brand Ambassadors. The Hays are also the authors of REMIX: Decorating with Culture, Objects, and Soul.
