Hello there! I’m Katie Jones, the interior designer and writer behind Jones Sweet Homes Interior Design Company and blog.
I’m a Kentucky born, Atlanta-raised design maniac, and am completely and hopelessly infatuated with houses, construction, and DIY.
I earned my design degree from Auburn University, and I work in the residential construction industry. Over the last six years I have often enjoyed the interesting challenge of being the only pair of heels in a room full of steel-toed boots.
In the last ten years, I have built a new home, repaired nearly everything in a less than desirable rental, renovated an early 90’s gem, restored a 1947 bungalow, and remodeled an early 2000’s Suburbialand abode.
When I say “I”, what I mean is me and my incredibly talented, patient, and open-minded husband. I might be the ideas, but he’s the execution.
We live in (and love!) the Jacksonville / Saint Augustine, Florida area, and are so fortunate to have had the wedding of our dreams here, the opportunity to work on five different houses here, and now a growing family here.
I started this blog as a place to share the adventures of our life and our many home and DIY projects, and to hopefully impart some wisdom – and laughter – that will inspire you to try some of these projects yourself!
If you’re new here, welcome! These pages are a good place to start for some background info before you plunge into the blog rabbithole!
If you’re looking for design services, you can find more info about JSH Design Co. here and I can’t wait to hear about your project!
Talk to you soon!
