Cathrin Bolt

Cathrin Bolt

Interior Decorator & Project Manager

I’m a fearless creative with everything from interiors to baking. I am also very short. I constantly get teased about my unique, and sometimes impossible ideas (design at the office, and baking at home). I love house plants, ceramics and going on adventures with my husband and 2 kids. My mission? To create livable, lovable spaces. My style? Toned down luxury, with a creative twist.
