Where is your home located and what is your favorite part about where you live?
Our home is located in Gilbert, Arizona And my favorite part about Arizona happens to be my least favorite thing too if that makes any sense….the warm weather, lol!!
What are your favorite things to do at home with your family?
As a family we literally love to watch movies, cook, and laugh together. We do a lot of joking around…pretty much non stop.
On an average weekend where would we find your family and what would you be doing?
We would be at home swimming or hover boarding around the house…lol! Not kidding.
Where are your favorite places to shop for your home?
Home Good, West Elm, Land of Nod, Target and Thrift Stores
We love your eclectic yet simple style to your home, we wish we could pull that off! What inspired you with the design?
Literally I like a lot of different styles so if I find one major piece I like and I have a spot for it, I design the whole room around that piece. I go to pinterest type in for example Green bed and go from there until I find a pic or two I like. I draw inspiration from those pics and viola.
Your kid’s rooms are amazing… Talk to us about the design to them…
Again I started with the beds for each room, then I went to Pinterest and searched the style of bed and looked at all the pictures that had them in it until I found a style I liked. That is what prompted the striped throw blankets in the boys room. Sometimes if I get stuck on something, for example in the boys room I was stuck on what color the dresser should be. I will look at Pinterest as well to see what color dressers are paired with the color bed I have…it can kind of get overwhelming because I end up seeing a lot of stuff and going in a lot of different directions, but eventually I stop and say “okay that looks good.” I mean I can Pinterest all the way to dresser display boys room…for ideas lol!!!
In the girls room I Pinterested antique poster bed bohemian the perfect picture came up and knew it was just what I wanted for their room. I am in love with antique rugs and simple white bedding and that was just what this picture was. I take a little from each picture I find during my search and it just kind of all comes together.
Same for Kaitlin’s room…she told me she wanted a green bed do I searched for green bed ideas. In all of my searches I always added bohemian or modern. I love searching for rooms that mix modern and antique.
What is your favorite room in your home and why?
The playroom because at this moment it is everything I want it to be and I don’t think I need to change one thing. I am ALWAYS changing things up…the house is already different since the shoot. The Day Dream Believer piece is now in our Family/Living room and we have new pictures above our bed…lol!
Is there any piece in your home that just screams Katie?
My antique Rugs!!! If I could I would have one in every room. I love them so much but it is pretty hard to find a good size affordable one.
What advice do you have for our readers on tackling a project like the design of their home?
Pick one expensive or quality piece per room and build around it. Search Pinterest for pics of that piece for ideas and the fill in with Home Good, Target, Pinterest and even Goodwill finds.

The kids rooms 😍😍
Hello, Love the whole house! Would you mind sharing where is the stuffed elephant from the boy’s room is from? It’s so cute! Unfortunately, the link is for the Bla Bla Kids doll next to it. Thank you!
So sorry, Katie didn’t supply us with that info!
Love it! Also
Never saw her husband so was very curious
Pretty handsome fella!
Beautiful East Coast style/decor!!! Only negative I see is that the kitchen should have a “built-in” fridge to match the other clean lines. All very gorgeous!
Beautiful home and family. The little girls look just like their Mama.
