The Mira Jean Story

Mira Jean Designs is the creation of artist & lead designer Kate Hougen. Work has been featured in Traditional Home, Cottages & Bungalows, Arlington Magazine's Best of Arlington Award Winner for Wallpaper - Editor's Pick, on a Business of Design Podcast Interview (Episode 216) ... and most recently, our studio was honored to be voted Best Interior Designer by Arlington Magazine!

As a child, Kate grew up overseas and lived in Africa and the Middle East. It was here her love of textiles and bold colors 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? We'd love to learn more about your project! Fill out our contact form online and we will be in touch.

What our Clients are saying ...

“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
