Meet Katie

Hi, my name is Katie Cooley and welcome to my blog! I’m a mom to a beautiful (albeit feisty) 4 year old daughter who is our world, and wife to a military veteran who works in real estate and runs his own marketing firm, Cooltucky Creative. He is obsessed with Star Wars and Batman, but is really cute and super nice so I deal with it. ;). Together we are a goofy trio and I am lucky to have complete creative freedom when it comes to our home; he likes to design the landscaping (which I don’t particularly enjoy) and I focus on the interior, so it’s a win-win!

I’m a Finance Manager with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky and work full-time for a media production company. We live outside of Lexington, Kentucky but I have lived in Ft. Worth, Los Angeles, Chicago and have been fortunate to travel around many parts of the world. Those places are all incredible but I call Kentucky home. It’s where I met my husband and we started our family.

We live in our second home, which is a custom build that I am especially proud of. I chose every single detail myself (okay, so I gave my husband some options) and even made drawings that rival a toddler’s of what I wanted particular spaces to look like. Lucky for us, our builder was able to make my vision come to fruition. I have experience in staging homes to sell and was given the opportunity to design the 20,000 square foot corporate office space for the company I work for. I am extremely sarcastic with a tell-it-how-I-see-it viewpoint. Never malicious, but I share my truths. 😊

I created this blog as a fun way to share design ideas, inspiration, lifestyle, recipes – you name it! If it’s something I’m passionate about, I want to share it with you. Design and decorating have always held a special place in my heart and your home should be a reflection of who you are and what you love.
