The Mira Jean Story

Mira Jean Designs is the creation of artist & lead designer Kate Hougen. As seen in Traditional Home, Cottages & Bungalows, and Arlington Magazine's Best of Arlington Award Winner for Wallpaper - Editor's Pick.

As a child, Kate grew up overseas and lived in Africa and the Middle East. It was here her love of textiles first began. In 2015, Kate launched her first Mira Jean Designs textile collection. A few years later, she added wallpaper to the line. In 2018, she began offering interior design and decorating services.


Kate's work is colorful, fresh and fun. Interior spaces blend the right mix of practical, beautiful and functional. Interested in working with us to refresh or renovate your own home? Fill out our contact form online and we will be in touch!

“We have worked with Kate on three design projects over the past year, including a major bathroom and basement renovation. Kate has been an amazing partner in these projects. In addition to her exceptional design concepts ... her expertise initiated a transformation of our home into a modern, warm and comfortable home that we're proud to show off. We're excited to work with her on our next project - just hope we get it all done before HGTV discovers her! - The Krohl Family

“My house feels like my home, but better ... the best version of my home and memories. Your artistic talent has definitely made me happier.  Thank you for taking the risk of turning your gifts into a business."  - J. Dodd

"I have never been able to visualize what a decorated room could look like and have always been overwhelmed with choices. I thought bringing in someone to help would be too expensive and too time consuming, but when we decided to redo the main level of our house I knew we needed to get help. Kate from Mira Jean Designs was so flexible and took into account our budget and preference for "lots of color". The results are amazing." - J. Boig
