The creative minds behind Hayward Design Co. bring modern functionality to a century-old location, creating a classic and cozy home away from home for Rapid city visitors – Hayward B&B.

“we want it to feel cozy and comfortable, but at the same time, inspiring.”


Co-owners of Hayward Design Co., Rozalyn Hays and Becca Aylward, turned this 100-year-old home into a modern bed and breakfast. Located in Rapid City, this craftsman-style house is furnished with antique or thrifted items, and features refinished original hardwood floors.


Complete with a gas range, stainless steel appliances, and updated cabinets, the designers kept the subway tile for a “timeless and clean look.” Though Aylward and Hays didn’t have the space to add a dining room table, the space leads into a south facing sunroom that is perfect for guests that want their breakfast sunny-side up.


The master bedroom has two access points, both of which have yellow statement doors. To tie in even more color, the designers decided to paint the table the same color, playing off of the sheer white curtains and the grey bedding.

“It’s hard not to love something you’ve poured your heart into.”

“even though this is a short-term rental, adding plants make it feel like a real home.”


Having clean and simple as their mantra, this house gave them the chance to try out a new shade of white they had never used before in different spaces.

They complemented the whitewashed floors by utilizing a plethora of vintage furniture and refreshing plants.


Previously a little boy’s room, the designers decided to keep the blue walls in another bedroom and accent it with bright, airy décor, making it more gender neutral. The twin beds are great for children, and provide the room “with so much character,” which is something that Aylward says is important in design.
