Catherine Story

Hello to all of my fellow home decor lovers.

As you've probably gathered by now, my name is Catherine Young. I'm a strong, confident, hard-working and dedicated woman. It is these attributes that got me started on the path of home decor.

It takes strength to dedicate yourself to a constant trial-and-error and to always strive for better. Anyone who works or who is passionate about this field can tell you that the perfect home is about more than just aesthetic appeal. Instead, it's about finding the perfect combination of personality and functionality. 

Your home should be a representation of you, which is easier said than done. If you've ever tried redecorating on your own or moving into a new home, you already know this. There are infinite possibilities. This makes it especially hard to choose which direction you want to go in. 

When I decorated my first home, I made the rounds of every home hardware and furniture store in my city. I was determined to have the perfect home. I filled shopping carts with curtains, throw pillows, throw blankets, shelving, and pretty much anything else that I could come up with. 

When it actually came to setting up my home, I realized that I had bought way more than I needed. I only ended up using about half of the items and furniture that I had bought. I had to return everything else. The items that I couldn't return meant that I lost money. Next came the patio and garden furniture. From birdbaths to pool accessories, I once again became obsessed with having the backyard of my dreams. 

I've changed a lot since the days when I first began home decoration. Now I focus on creating the home of your dreams while decluttering your life at the same time. There needs to be a balance between material possessions and overall comfort and style. 

When looking at how to decorate homes, I first want to know what your individual needs are. From there, we can look at how we can incorporate the furniture that you're looking for, or already have, into the overall style of your dream home. Anything can be adjusted and customized, which is why I don't prioritize style right away. 

I made this website to help you work through some of the hard decisions ahead. I'll work with you to narrow down the various ideas and thoughts that you have running through your head. By the end of this journey, my hope is that you'll have the home you've always dreamed of. 

Whether you're here because you want some tips and tricks on how to improve your home's decor or because you want complete guidance on how to decorate your home, I'll help you along the way and feel free to contact us.
