A Mississippi native, Traci Lewis relocated from Southaven to Tupelo just ten years ago. Although she spent years as a Registered Nurse, including time on a helicopter transport team, her passion for interior design soon won out. With a particular passion for textiles and fine linens, Traci leapt in by launching JTL Linens at The Farmhouse. To no one’s surprise, her interests and her business blossomed. That little endeavor grew to become The Farmhouse Tupelo, and now – Blairhaus.
When Traci isn’t indulging her fondness for home fashion, she’s spending time with her greatest love, her family. With a wonderful husband, three great children, and four fun-loving dogs, Traci is equally happy traveling about or just hanging out. She’s ever-thankful for her family’s support and involvement in everything she does, including the awesome work she does here at Blairhaus.
