Design is how I help you tell your story, organize your life, and create a comfortable, beautiful space to retreat to. I am passionate about creating interiors with a mix of modern, classic style for sustainable living. 

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 I had to design.

With a formal education in Engineering & Architectural Drafting and Design, a God-given gift to draw, and those instincts I trusted so long ago, I launched Kathleen Mapson & Company. As your designer, I am fully committed to my partnership with you. It is my job to allow you to enjoy the design process, while guiding you through the best possible solutions for your project - and ultimately, the way you live.



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 tell your story. It should reflect who you are, who you want to be -  effortlessly showcasing your most authentic self.

I believe your home should be a functional masterpiece designed around the way you need and want to live.

I believe your home should provide inspiration, comfort, relaxation, excitement, and invigoration.

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.
