Katie Monkhouse Interiors is a San Francisco Bay Area-based design and decorating firm. We work throughout Marin County, South Bay, East Bay and the city of San Francisco. With a strong focus on stylish, family-friendly interiors, Katie creates beautiful California-style interiors meant to be truly lived in.
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 north of the Golden Gate 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 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.
