Katie Monkhouse Interiors is a San Francisco Bay Area-based design and decorating firm. With a strong focus on stylish family-friendly interiors, Katie creates laid back spaces that both casual and impeccably curated. Our goal is to design homes that are not only beautiful but elevate and enhance the way you live.
Our clients are busy individuals that have a love for design and crave living in a beautifully appointed home but simply don't have the time or expertise to pull it all together. This is were we come in. We provide process driven design and this takes time but the results are always worth it.
Katie hails from a small town outside of Boston, Massachusetts and spent her early twenties working in fashion in New York City. After getting married and moving to San Francisco, Katie discovered her love for interior design while renovating her first home just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Mill Valley.
With over 12 years of fashion merchandising and buying under her belt, Katie decided to shift her focus out of the closet and into the rest of the home. The principals of fashion translate well to the world of design: proportion, balance, color, texture, and curation.
It’s no wonder that Katie eventually found her way to interior design with a builder for a father and a mother who owned a high-end rug company for much of her childhood. Growing up walking job sites and witnessing her father’s incredibly detailed finish work gives Katie an innate ability to visualize a space in its most ideal form.
Katie loves to travel with her husband and two small children; travel informs her aesthetic in every way and she makes sure to infuse global accents into all of her designs.
