Kaitlyn ventured to North Carolina all the way from upstate New York to continue her education in Interior Design. While obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design at High Point University she found a home here at Furnitureland as one of our first interns. After graduating she stuck around to out grow of her Kaitlyn “the intern” nickname and became the “New Girl”. Hopefully that has passed as well. As a student she also played a part in creating the Interiors and Home Furnishings Club, and planning trips and networking events for her fellow students.
Kaitlyn believes that design is all around us and it is an adventure to discover potential in the most unexpected places. In her spare time you can find Kaitlyn enjoying the beautiful outdoors and teaching ZUMBA!

As a designer, my passion has always surfaced from a craving for a good challenge. I have learned in every avenue of my experience that design is not about selecting a set. It’s about bringing new life and function to an otherwise uninspired concept. Allowing pieces with separate intentions to create balance and interest in [...]

Design is often seen as a pricy matter. From end tables to rugs, the bill can really stack up. I tend to be the “budget-conscious” type. One of my greatest joys in life is finding a GREAT DEAL.

For something that is so often a focal point, shouldn’t a coffee table strike up a little more interest? An interesting piece like this travel trunk can be used [...]

When designing, I like to add some Kait-ness to the space. Kait-ness being my personality and pizazz. Personality plays a strong role in creating a comfortable and stylish bedroom. Whether your personality calls for some bling, bright colors, or relaxing undertones, your “Ness” should shine within your bedroom. For the traveling soul, mementos from your [...]

The age of the sustainable lifestyle has arrived. The word GREEN has been redefined to describe our new “Eco-Friendly” ways. It’s almost as if the COLOR GREEN is fading into the background.
