Meet Katie

Katie in Mudroom

Hi! My name is Katie Cooley and welcome to my blog! I’m a mom to a beautiful (albeit feisty) 3 year old daughter who is our world, and wife to a military veteran who works in real estate. 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 14,000 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.
