In Good Taste: Katie Hackworth

Katie Hackworth entry with black door and black and white interiors


From full design-and-build projects to remodels, self-taught architectural and interior designer Katie Hackworth uses a trained eye and a background (and degree) in graphic design to create bold, bright spaces perfect for every member of the family–even the dog!

“Authentic design, quality craftsmanship, and concise approach” are hallmarks of this designer’s signature style, and each space she designs bears her mark.

A mix of materials in a kitchen creates a warm and inviting space,

While unexpected colors ground it and lend a sense of history.

Hackworth’s attention to detail is one of the things she is known for. In this charming kitchen, the details are everything.



We love the mix of metals in this space–and the practical components of this working kitchen are just as chic as the decorative ones.

A perfectly-designed space for two,

And a bright and cheerful bedroom that grows as she does, are each as unique as the people who live in them.

To an organized back door,  every space that Katie Hackworth tackles is as unique as the one before. It’s easy to see that her work is always in good taste.
