Hi! I'm Katie McKee, the Owner/Designer behind 12th State Design Co. and I'm so glad you're here.

My design journey began after realizing my passion and eye for interiors and decorating over 8 years ago. I started seeing a need for a more casual, and approachable partnership with designers, and I knew I had  discovered my passion: creating approachable, livable design that anyone can do themselves. I crafted a  design process that sets up my clients to able to execute my vision seamlessly on their own, with vision and guidance from yours truly.

In addition to design, my connection with realtors naturally pulled me into the real estate world, and I now provide a full service staging experience for both vacant and occupied clients. Curating and owning our own inventory, allows for a design forward approach that has helped sell homes all over the Triangle.
