Looking to walk into your home and have your heart singing with Joy?
Well, cue Beyonce--you’ve come to the right place. Katie DeStefano Design is a full service Interior Design studio that gives you the backdrop to live the life you want. Based in Maryland, we work on projects from coast to coast (and would be more than happy to zip off to France to design your château too).
We bring you classic interiors without the stuffy attitude.
While our process is the same for all our projects, YOU are special and unique. Your project has a different point of view, which we can’t wait to learn about and put our spin on. We strive to create classic, authentic interiors for our clients to make lasting memories and traditions in. With a love for both antiques and re-purposing, we hope to bring a bit of history into your home all while incorporating your beloved personal collections. Does your husband have a bunch of vintage Pez Dispensers? We know just what to do.
It’s not just about your home, it’s about how you live. We believe in the beauty of having a gracious home and on request can assist with entertaining needs, table settings, linens and stationery. It’s the small details that will set your home apart. It’s not pretentious, it’s thoughtful.
HEIRLOOM QUALITY & CRAFTSMANSHIP
We care about provenance—selections are made based off quality and craftsmanship. We carefully source items that are made with integrity and that are meant to last a lifetime. No “fast fashion” interiors over here.

2. CLIENT DISCOVERY & DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Once the design contract is approved, we take time to build a connection with our clients to understand aesthetics and values, along with the way you live. This is where our love affair begins. We will obtain measurements and floor plans so we can begin our process of design.
3. DESIGN MEETINGS
We present you with interior architecture suggestions, floor plan options, as well as furniture, fabrics, wallcoverings, flooring, lighting, and interior finishes selections. We plan on having a few meetings to build on ideas and ensure we get every detail just right…plus we know you love seeing us . We often leave “space” in the design to allow for special items to come to us during the process.
4. ORDERING & PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Once the proposed items for purchase are approved we will place orders on your behalf. Our Project Management and Coordination will ensure everything flows as seamlessly as possible so your mind can rest at ease.
We connect you to your area's best artisans, craftsmen, subcontractors and industry professionals who will join our team to execute our vision. We LOVE our team—they’re really the best (we know because we’re picky). When we’re ready to install the elements of the project, we coordinate and manage with them to ensure it is executed and installed flawlessly. Deficiencies do happen, but we make sure they are handled so you don’t fret.
6. HOME EVOLUTION
The wonderful thing about life is that it’s constantly changing. We love watching our clients begin new adventures and offer refreshment services as your needs change and evolve. Babies? We’ll make a nursery so cute you won’t care you’re not sleeping. Grown kids FINALLY moving out? We’ll make your dream of turning their old room into a walk-in closet a reality. Husband said you can get a La Cornue for Christmas? We’ll pick out the color and design a matching hood that Ina Garten would approve.
