Hello! My name is Hilary Walker. I am a photo stylist and author of the blog Our Style Stories, a website where I explore the connection between style and story through profiles of people with unique personal style, distinct points of view, and creative pursuits. I visit their homes, photograph their style, and glean insights into beautiful, authentic living from their stories.
I also publish a podcast of interviews with each of my guests where we talk about subjects ranging from creativity, work habits, entrepreneurship, artistry, daily practices, common struggle, life lessons, design trends, and personal style.
Our Style Stories is a design, fashion, and lifestyle website that’s anxious to build lasting relationships with cool brands! The site is a continuation of “Hilary Inspired” which was launched in January of 2010. In it’s new form, Our Style Stories is growing rapidly and garnering a dedicated following of readers who wish to create beauty, authenticity, and joy in their daily lives through their homes, wardrobes, lifestyles, and career choices.

I'm an artist, designer, and overall aesthete who likes to write about a lot of things. Things like sprucing up my home with never ending DIY projects, refinishing furniture, clothes that make me happy, my art & design work, and raising two tiny humans... basically all the pretty things. Life's better when it's beautiful, and I'm designing mine every day.
Kisses & Chaos: Come for the weirdness. Stay for the love.
Kisses & Chaos focuses on all things beautiful and bizarre, be it style, art, history, diy, music or celebrity interviews but always slightly dark & twisty with an emphasis on love & quirkiness.
We're a small company out to make advertising a little easier. Maybe a little more human. Maybe a little less like a late night on a used car lot. Maybe a little more like a nice dinner with that person you love.
