Hello, Salutations, Cheers, and Welcome!
Hi there! My name is Katie and I am the author of deckthehouse blog. Thank you for stopping by, having a look around, and taking a peek into my adventures in design. On this blog I will be sharing interior design inspiration, my own decorating projects, crafts, recipes, entertaining, and pretty much anything that strikes me as something that will encourage others to fill their homes with love. My goal is to document my journey into interior design, honestly, and authentically. You will read about my mistakes as well as my success. After all, nobody is perfect, and frankly... perfect is boring! A little about me...
I am one of those rare unicorns also known as a San Diego native. I was born in San Diego and absolutely love this city! I am definitely a SoCal girl to the core! I am a design aficionado, an avid cook and baker, and I enjoy entertaining and throwing parties. I am a dance instructor and love my students and inspiring young minds. Becoming an Interior Designer has been a long time dream of mine, and in the summer of 2015 I began my studies part time in an interior design program.
Favorite Foods: Chocolate, Red Wine, Cupcakes, French Fries, Popcorn, Salmon, Brie, Bread (any kind will do!), and Quesadillas. Oh yes, and coffee... I cannot live without it!
Favorite TV Shows: Sex in the City, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones
My Inspiration: My Grandma Mary... The best hostess, incredible baker, and most loving woman I have ever met.
Hobbies: knitting, pretty much anything crafty, yoga, going on walks, cooking for friends and family, and of course decorating my home!
Favorite Flowers: pink roses, daffodils, peonies, and dahlias.
You should also know that I have two kitties... Tokyo and Suki, who are pretty much the cutest cats ever to walk the face of this earth. I am sure I will share (and possibly overshare) plenty of pictures of them.
Thanks again for stopping by! I am so excited to finally embark on this journey of starting a blog. Is is going to be difficult at times? You bet. Is it going to be intimidating sharing my life with the rest of the world? I'm sure. Is it going to be a ton of fun, a wonderful experience, and help connect me with others that share my interests? I hope so! Is it going to be worth it? Absolutely :)
