Katie Hilburn | Owner and Principal Designer of Katie Hilburn Interiors

I am inspired by my clients and their unique stories! As a designer my goal is to create spaces that truly reflect my clients and all the wonderful things that make them & their family unique. My inspiration is always found in my client! My hope is for their home to be an expression of who they are, so the client is always the main character of the story I tell. Creatively I’m also inspired by the world around me both in nature and in travel. My camera roll has become a catalog of inspiration: unique construction elements, art, textiles and patterns that I’ve come across. Read more>>
