Hi there. You’ve stumbled upon the page full of fine print. I’ll try to keep it brief.


I started this blog because I believe that your perfect home can and should be comfortable, beautiful and affordable — yes, even when you have sticky hands and muddy footprints to contend with. I enjoy sharing my own tips and advice so that YOU can create a space you love that’s stylish yet family-friendly.

Obviously it costs money to keep my site up and running, and there are several ways I make a little bit of money to pay for the boring stuff like hosting fees.

The main way I do this is through affiliate marketing.

What’s affiliate marketing? It means that if you click on a link on my site and make a purchase at that retailer, I receive a teeny commission because of your purchase at no additional cost to you. I want to tell you that I only recommend products that I either already use and love, or would buy for myself.

For example, I participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliate sites. I also work with ShareASale and RewardStyle.

When I use affiliate links on my site, I’ll disclose that to you. Thank you so much for your support and for purchasing awesome stuff for your humble abode through my links! I appreciate it.

Sometimes I am paid to provide my opinion and review of certain products, or I receive products for free with the expectation that I will share my honest thoughts about those products with my readers. If that’s the case, I will disclose that to you in the beginning of the post. All opinions are mine, and I only recommend products that I either use and love, or would by for myself.

The thoughts and opinions shared here on Kate Decorates are purely mine. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
