An east coaster at heart with an eye for bohemian lifestyle design, Kaitrin joined the Veneer team in 2016, with ambition towards making clean, modern, bohemian home style, accessible to everyone. Growing up in Orange County New York, surrounded by an intensely creative family circle, arts, architecture and design has been a constant in her life, with her family’s business based in luxury custom craftsman home development and commercial building restoration throughout the world.
Her relationship with Natalie and Veneer Designs came in the most organic of ways. Both New Yorkers with a passion for clean modern bohemian design coupled with east coast ambition, Kaitrin reached out after seeing Natalie’s work on Houzz, MyDomain and Domino, to see if there was a shot in the dark that she could take her under her wing. Stars aligned and a design duo was born. Kaitrin brings a charismatic energy and intuitive insight to the smaller scale projects she takes on.
Achieving her Bachelors in Communications and Public Relations from SUNY Oswego and her Associates in Veterinary Medical Science from SUNY Ulster, Kaitrin’s interests span far beyond design and architecture. Earlier ambitions were geared towards anything to set her apart from her family’s business, but in the end the design bug kept biting. Moving to Venice California in 2013 gave her the push to pursue her love of interior design. Starting as an intern at JAC Interiors in Mar Vista, moving quickly up the ladder towards project manager. After relentlessly pursuing one of her design mentors, the opportunity came to collaborate with Emily Henderson on freelance blog projects and instantly her career had new focus.
Living at home in Mar Vista with her husband Patrick and Golden Retriever Harvey, life is beautiful, productive and adventurous. When not designing she enjoys anything that takes her outside, including bike rides, canyon hikes, beach naps and flea market hunting. She also has an immense love of travel, exploring new cultures whenever possible.
