Do you gravitate toward a certain design aesthetic, color scheme, etc?
I want my home to be a lively reflection of my husband and myself, so we kind of just go with what we like at the moment.
What are your biggest sources of inspiration?
My grandmother. She was so fiery and full of personality! And it showed through in her wardrobe. I remember playing dress up in her furs and costume jewelry and thinking she was so glamorous.
The Audrey Hepburn pic gift that was glitterized by her hubby, a thrifted whale paper weight, Etsy artwork and a handmade banner by her awesome graphic designer: Lindsey Edwards.
Craft store wood hand, Anthropologie mini picture frame, thrifted red vase, a picture of her beautiful mom, HomeGoods lamp, yardsale tray, and Hallelu jewelry.
Urban Outfitters chandeliers and Target bird pillows.
Did you always know exactly how you wanted to decorate your home, or has your taste evolved over time?
My home is constantly evolving. I like the things in our home to have meaning. There are certain pieces that have been passed down through our families that I think we will have forever, but I love to collect things when we travel or at thrift stores with my husband. It’s a constant treasure hunt!
Catherine’s husband is friends with Eric Soderquist who wrote ” The California Surf Project” and went to Costa Rica with him last summer.
How does living near the beach influence your interior decorating style?
I have always lived near the ocean so I think it has a big influence on my style. Especially with the colors: I am drawn to all things bright & airy. We have tons of shells, old bottles, & coral that we have collected from the beach all over the house. We love to spend time outdoors soaking up the sun, cooking on the grill, & playing dominos, so it was very important to me to make our outdoor space very comfortable.
