Love this pillow!“Our home is located in East Los Angeles, CA. I live with my husband Andrew and our dog, Bmo. I am an interior designer, stylist and actress (catch me in “You’re the Worst” as Jimmy’s youngest sister on FXX this fall). When I first viewed this house, I felt sorry for it. It was very worn and neglected and the previous occupants had not taken good care of it. The place definitely needed a facelift, and as an interior designer/stylist, I wanted to inject my own ideas and concepts as well as restore what was already there. This home has a lot of wonderful natural light, which I absolutely love. Being from England, I was used to grey drizzly days, but California is completely the opposite. My influences as a designer and in my home come from the colors of my surroundings—blue skies and oceans, tropical palm trees, turquoise swimming pools and stunning pink and orange Californian sunsets.

Vintage bottlesOffice art“My favorite space is currently my office which my husband and I share. I take up most of the space, I confess, with fabrics, art supplies and throw pillows for my Etsy Store, which is still in the early stages. I did a makeover in there recently, got rid of a bunch of stuff and pinned up all my art pieces on the notice board. I’m currently working on a range of upholstery fabrics, so this keeps me motivated! I love to paint in my spare time, so this has enabled me to get more of it into my life.

KitchenCollectibles“I’m a huge fan of vintage and repurposing or up-cycling and I’m obsessed with thrift stores and yard sales. This is key for my projects and the clients I work with. A lot of the furniture we have is vintage or secondhand with some new items peppered in. If it can be reimagined and redesigned, then I’m into it. My absolute favorite item of furniture is the the yellow painterly floral arm chair upholstered in a Designers Guild fabric. DG is my favorite vendor for fabrics and wallpaper. Their stuff is so fresh, colorful and inspiring.

Katie CostickDecor detailsAt Home with via abeautifulmess.com“Some of my most treasured items have been carried over from England in my hand luggage, even when I was told I was crazy or it wouldn’t be possible. I proved them all wrong! Not one item was broken or damaged. I have a big antique bottle collection some of which date back to the late 1800s. Some of them I literally dug out of the ground with my Auntie as there was a Victorian rubbish tip near her house full of old jars and bottles and other random junk.

“We’ve been living in this house for about a year and a half. Our home is always evolving. It’s my laboratory where I can experiment with new colors and arrangements. I’m always changing the throw pillows because I am obsessed with them, and I find awesome fabrics I just have to incorporate in my concepts. I’m very lucky to have the freedom to do that and a very tolerant husband!”

Thanks so much for sharing, Katie! You can find more of Katie via KCC Interiors and on Instagram! xo.

  • It’s my favorite book! If I see a copy in a thrift store I tend to buy it even though I have enough already!

  • Hi Chandana the plant is a Fiddle Fig leaf tree. I got it and the pot from IKEA!

  • A beautiful space, and I love that you can make any space design worthy even on a budget. It’s nice not to feel pressure to get the top of the line items. Just paint the kitchen white!

    Love the fiddle leaf fig!
