Design is how I tell your story, organize your life, and create a comfortable, beautiful space to retreat to. Design is how I help you live.

My earliest memory of telling a story through design was in the 3rd grade. My art class was responsible for the set design of our jungle themed school play. When asked who wanted to create the lion, the star of the show, I excitedly raised my hand. I recall being nervous with every stroke of the paint brush, but somehow trusting my instincts. It turned out better than I imagined. My love for art and design was ignited, and as time passed and projects progressed, I realized my passion. I had to design.

Fast forward a few years ago and three degrees later, I began teaching Graphic and Interior Design at the Art Institute. After sharing my love for design with a few colleagues, I received my first paying project. Throughout each phase of the project I realized even more, how deeply rooted my passion for art and design was. So, trusting those same instincts from all those years ago, I started Kathleen Mapson & Company. It has undoubtedly been one of the most exciting and fulfilling decisions I have made.

I am Kathleen Mapson, an Interior Designer and Artist. I create spaces that are a mix of modern, classic style for sustainable living. 



While I am based out of Atlanta, I have designed for clients living in Washington D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia. As your designer, I work with you to transform your living space into a place you will love to call home. When designing spaces, I think about the things that matter most to you. Those things become the core of your design – what I use to build beauty and functionality around.


I believe your home should reflect who you are and the life you have lived – showcasing your individuality.

I believe your home should be a functional masterpiece designed around the way you live and move in that space.

I believe your home should provide comfort, relaxation, excitement, or invigoration – whichever you want based on how you live.

I believe you should live beautifully. And as your designer, I am committed to thoughtfully creating a well-designed and beautiful space for you to retreat to.
