I’m Katie Jones, the interior designer and writer behind Jones Sweet Homes | Design + Blog.
If we’re going to be friends you’ll need to know a bit about me, so here goes! I’m a Kentucky born, Atlanta-raised design maniac, and am completely and hopelessly infatuated with houses, construction, and DIY. Those loves of my life come second only to the actual loves of my life, my talented, SUPER handy, and incredibly patient husband, and our sassy, smart, loving two-year-old daughter. And I can’t leave out her soon-to-be little sister, due at the end of next month, June 2017! We live in and love the Jacksonville / Saint Augustine, Florida area, and are so fortunate that this is where we had the wedding of our dreams, the opportunity to work on five different houses of our own, and now a growing family.
I earned my design degree from Auburn University, and I work in the residential construction industry, which means that 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, we 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 TWO early 2000’s abodes… and those are only our personal projects!
Jones Sweet Homes, my third baby, was born in June of 2016 because I wanted to make the design process FUN and attainable for families like yours and mine! I believe that my personal hands-on, DIY, and budget-conscious approach brings a unique perspective to my client’s design projects. My philosophy is that great design should not only be beautiful, but also functional, attainable, and you. That is always my goal for my sweet clients at JSH Design Co.!
The blog and Instagram are a behind-the-scenes look at what is going on at Jones Sweet Homes. In my classic TMI fashion, I cover everything from interior design topics and our latest DIY projects, all the way to pregnancy woes and livin’ that #momlife!
