Hailing from the West Coast with a career background in event planning, interior decorating, and multimedia-Caitlyn is a creative person who appreciates individuality and sees potential where others don't. She has designed editorial-look weddings and living spaces on tight budgets that her clients never knew were possible, and has had her work published in lifestyle blogs and Martha Stewart Living. In her free time, she enjoys thrifting for global treasures and mid-century furniture to add to her modern-eclectic home; volunteering her time to support art, culture, and diversity efforts in her community of Mount Vernon; and chasing her own little rascals with her thespian husband around Iowa.
As a former wine professional, her design philosophy is inspired by the best wine producers who allow a grape's terroir, the characteristic taste and flavor imparted to wine by the natural environment-soil, topography, and climate in which the grapes are grown-dictate the direction of their winemaking. "Due to cost and other factors, sometimes aspects of a home can't be changed-but embracing its unique features and committing to a cohesive and stylish design aesthetic is oftentimes all people need to enjoy their living space!"
