Principal & Designer
Katie has always had an eye for beautiful things. As a little girl, she loved studying floor plans and the beautiful designs in her mother’s decorating magazines. She spent countless hours dreaming up spaces of her own in her head and on paper. It was no surprise that one day she’d run off to New York City to pursue her passion for interior design.
After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Pratt Institute in 2008, Katie began her career working on high-end editorial spaces and designing custom furniture and lighting before moving to Seattle, WA, in 2011. Her long time love of high-end East Coast style quickly evolved to incorporate her new love of the laid-back, hip and rustic Pacific Northwest style. Katie’s design approach is both modern and classic: a perfect mix of old and new, creating a timeless look that is fresh, simple and original.
Now, Katie’s style marries NYC modern, New England traditional and West Coast modern eclectic, that she’s brought back with her to the east coast. Her spaces feel warm, inviting, well-designed and never too matchy-matchy. Katie has a unique eye for design and the ability to mix styles in order to bring a fresh outlook to the home while still maintaining ultimate comfort and function for any lifestyle.
Katie loves working closely with her clients. She believes it is vital to get to know their sense of style and expectation for each space in their home. Once she has a clear understanding of her clients’ needs and wants, she gathers their inspiration and puts her own creative spin on it. Katie prides herself on pushing the boundaries (just a bit) to deliver clients a space that they love, but may never have chosen on their own.
Katie lives in Rochester, NY, with her husband and chocolate lab, Teddy. In her free time, she can be found creating custom hand lettered signage for friends and events, taking a boot camp class with a girlfriend at a local fitness studio, making improvements to her home or relaxing and boating with her family on Skaneateles Lake.
