Meet Kate

WELCOME!

_____

I’m so happy we found one another. 

Just like you, I’m a busy mom with young kids. And all the decorating “inspiration” out there is lovely, but I know that real people like you and me simply want unique, affordable, and family-friendly decorating ideas. 

Ones that won’t cost us an entire paycheck or suck up a whole weekend.

Have you ever….

  • Fallen in love with a room you spotted on Pinterest, only to discover that there’s no freaking way that gorgeous glass coffee table or the $5,000 sofa would last for two seconds in your own home? 
  • Wondered how you’d ever find the time to hammer, nail, and saw your way to building a one-of-a-kind bunk bed for your kids?
  • Admired the people who make their own organization labels, but really just wish someone would give you a list of stuff to order from Amazon that’d make it easier for you to find matching socks in the morning?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then we’re going to be fast friends.

There’s plenty of unattainable decorating “inspo” out there, but here’s the truth:

You can create a pretty AND practical home that works for every single member of your family — all done on a “normal person” budget.

And that’s exactly why I started my business.

THE GAL BEHIND THE BLOG

___

Hey! I’m Kate — a thirtysomething wife, mom of two, public relations gal by day, and decorator by night who lives in a 1980s builder-grade home in the Washington, DC suburbs.

I love decorating with color and pattern. I also love finding decorating “easy” buttons: quick DIYs, simple organization hacks and amazing steals at Target.

In non-decorating news, I enjoy a good podcast, love trips to the beach, look forward to a Saturday afternoon bike ride with my family, own too many pairs of ballet flats, and am a master when it comes to slow cooker meals.

COLORFUL, KID-FRIENDLY STYLE

___

I don’t think anyone has just one “style” when it comes to decorating. But everybody has colors and patterns and other things that we really love.

Filling our house with those makes it feel like “us,” right?

In our home, I’m all about using bright, joyful, energizing color. 

And I marry that color-happy style with practical, affordable decor throughout each room. Because when you’ve got toddlers running around, nothing can be irreplaceable. #juicestains
