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.
With this package, you'll get an in-person consultation where we take measurements and photos & discuss in depth your vision for your home. You'll receive an inspiration board, space plan (if needed), private Pinterest Board with specific links to furniture & accessories, and 2 rounds of revisions on your project. (Discount offered for 3 or more rooms)
With this service, you'll get a 2 hour in-home session where we will help decorate, re-decorate, and style any space that you need. Things like rearranging furniture, decorating a mantle, styling built-ins or creating a gallery wall are perfect projects for this.
Occupied Home Staging Consultation
We partner with individual sellers and real-estate agents to prepare homes for The Triangle's demanding market. We advise homeowners on how to de-clutter, update and stage their home to make a lasting first impression in today's concentrated market.
Vacant Home Staging
Let us use our curated inventory to help your empty home feel like a space the potential buyer can imagine themselves in. We take a design-forward approach that prioritizes the most recent trends, while appealing to The Triangle's specific consumer base. Full home, vacant staging includes the main living room, dining room, kitchen, and owner's suite. Rooms can be added for an additional cost.
If you enjoy design, but need help creating an overall vision, then E-Design is for you. Katie will help you create a design plan that fits any budget, and can be executed at your pace. This service includes an inspiration board, space plan (if needed), private Pinterest board with direct links to furniture & decor, detailed instructions on how to implement everything, and answers any questions you have along the way. (Discount offered for multi-room clients)
This is a great option for you if you just need some inspiration or vision for a space, but can do the furniture & decor sourcing on your own. You'll have a 30 minute Zoom call with me, where you can show me your space, talk through challenges, and I'll follow it up with an inspiration board and suggestions for how to pull the room together.
